Injury Claim in Breckland


Making a personal injury claim in Breckland for compensation is a legal right in the UK, if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. Your injuries must have been severe enough to need medical treatment, and the accident must have happened within the last three years, but if these three rules apply to your situation, then you could be entitled to compensation, and making a personal injury claim in Breckland is the way to achieve it.

Not paying a deposit for starting a personal injury claim in Breckland

This has been the law in the UK for a very long time, but for many years the law was a mockery as only the wealthy could afford to make a claim. Innocent victims were worried that if their claim was lost, they would have to face a hefty legal bill so many of them did not make a claim when they were injured through the fault of someone else.

This really was unfair because many of the rich people would not have their life affected as much as the working class, who could lose everything they owned if they were off work for months and had to spend money on extra medicines and care.

In the 1940s the government tried to address what was an obvious problem by introducing legal aid, not just for a personal injury claim in Breckland, but for many other areas of the law as well.

This did help many people to get the legal justice they were entitled to, but still left a huge gap between the rich and the poor who could not make a claim, but this situation continued until the withdrawal of legal aid for compensation claims in 1998.

The introduction of the conditional fee agreement

Legal aid was replaced with the conditional fee agreement as from April 2000, and for the first time anyone could make a personal injury claim. The conditional fee agreement means exactly what it says, the fees are only payable as a condition of winning the claim.

This very quickly became known as no win no fee*, and as well as meaning that victims do not have to worry about financing their claim, it means that the specialist law firm they use, takes the financial risk, not the victim.

There is a school of thought that says this makes the lawyers more diligent, as if they lose a claim they will not receive any money and so they will work harder to reach a conclusion quicker. The hourly paid lawyer does not have to care about how long the claim takes, or if it is won or lost, the victim will have to pay the bill anyway.

This is why 98% of all personal injury claims are made under the no win no fee* agreement, and why one of the leading specialist law firms in the UK, Accident Advice Helpline, handles all their claims this way.
