Money is said to be the number one cause of stress in this country, but when it comes to finding an expert solicitor in Gurney Slade it is one concern you might feel you could do without.
The aftermath of any accident can be extremely stressful for everyone concerned. There is the feeling of vulnerability, the uncertainty over the future and not to mention the day to day difficulty of living with the condition.
Most of all there is the worry of money. If you’ve been hurt in an accident you may find that you’re unable to work and that you income takes a hit. Not only is it an immediate problem, but if the injury is long term then it is something that could last well into the future.
In addition to that making a claim for compensation might seem quite a risk because the entire deal looks very expensive.
How to pay for your claim
In many legal cases there is legal aid available to help you fight your case but this is not the case with personal injury law. You will have to find the money from somewhere and as mentioned above that might not be the easiest task.
However, there is another way and it’s called no win no fee*. When legal aid was removed from personal injury cases in the 90s many firms began offering no win no fee* as a substitute for legal aid. Often this meant that the claim was almost cost free as your lawyer could often claim their success fees from the other side if you won the case.
But again that has changed, so now the lawyer will have to claim them back from you at the end of the case. They will normally do this by agreeing a percentage of the compensation fee which is payable to them at the end of the case. This is something that will vary from lawyer to lawyer but in general you should receive at least 75% of your legal fee.
While it is not ideal to receive less than 100% of your claim it is a pain free way of paying for these services and it also means that your lawyer will be motivated to get the best possible result from the case.
