Injury claim solicitors in East Hampshire
When we ask people about their attitudes to claiming compensation one fear emerges above all others – the question of how much it is likely to cost. People are understandably concerned about claiming compensation and they will want to feel certain their interests are being looked after. They won’t want to lose a case and then be left with a great big legal bill. This article will show you how to make an affordable claim and find injury claim solicitors in East Hampshire who can help with your particular case.
Ways of paying
Over the years the approach to payments for personal injury compensation has changed considerably. Back in the last century people were able to claim legal aid to cover their bills. However, the government changed all that at the end of the 90s which means claimants now have to foot the bill. Naturally this creates a major barrier in front of claiming for most people who will have to decide whether or not they think it’s worth the risk.
One option is to take out insurance. In the same way as a policy can insure your car or your home, you can find those which will cover you in the event that you lose your case. However, there are things to consider. Premiums will cost the same no matter what happens with your case. If you win it will increase the overall cost and if you lose you will still have to pay them.
A more elegant solution comes in the form of the conditional fee arrangement. Better known as no win no fee*, this was brought in by the government to remove some of the key obstacles standing in people’s way. It states that if you do not win your case, you will not have to pay anything in compensation. It’s a good way of reducing the financial risk people take and making sure they are not forced into debt by a claim.
What happens if you win
If you do win, there will be fees to pay which is why it’s a good idea to know what you’re going to pay and at what time. Fees can vary between different law firms, so it’s worth getting a quote as early as possible to avoid a nasty surprise.
