No win no fee: it’s a great little phrase, isn’t it? And here at Accident Advice Helpline, we think it’s been crucial in helping people get support which they might otherwise not have been able to access. As with many of these things, though, there is a certain amount of misconception about what it actually is and how it can help you out.
This blog will tell you more about no win no fee as a concept and how it can help you to find the best injury solicitors in Tadley.
Where did it come from?
In 1997, the government removed legal aid from personal injury claims. Its reasoning was to try and reduce the number of frivolous claims currently being made, and while it was successful it also left a number of other people in a difficult situation.
Once you’ve been hurt in an accident, it may affect your life in many ways and make it extremely difficult to know how to move forward. You are often forced to pay more, but this might come at a time when you have less money at your disposal.
Perhaps you’ve been forced off work and seen your income shrink as a result? Whatever the reason, it is likely the support that could come from compensation could prove to be extremely useful to you, but can you risk the money involved in making a claim? Without legal aid, this became a risk that was simply too great for many people to take.
As a result, the industry stepped in and began offering more no win no fee deals. This might be something a law firm only offered to some of its less wealthy clients, while others apply it across the board. Either way, it was very beneficial in removing the risk from the shoulders of the people making the claim and onto the legal team responsible for ensuring that they were successful in the claim.
How we work
We launched Accident Advice Helpline in 2000, with the concept of no win no fee very much at the heart of what we did. We felt it was important because it represented a way in which people could make a claim without risking their financial security.
We also made it much easier to find lawyers. So, if you were looking for injury solicitors in Tadley, for example, all you had to do was call up our free helpline and speak to a member of our team. We could do everything for you, giving you a professional end-to-end service and, again, ensuring that you only paid out if you won.
