The taste of justice can be very sweet. Unfortunately it can be pretty expensive too. The thought of paying legal fees keeps many people awake at night which is why it’s a good idea to find injury claim solicitors in Flintshire who work on the basis of no-win, no-fee*. In this article we’ll tell you more about the various options for paying legal fees and how you can improve your chances of a successful outcome.
Paying legal fees for injury claims solicitors in Flintshire
The way in which we pay for compensation claims in this country has changed considerably over the past few years. The removal of legal aid seemingly made it dangerous and challenging for anyone who was considering claiming compensation. However, this has now been replaced with the conditional fee arrangement.
This is better known as no-win, no-fee* and includes a promise, on the part of your law firm, to take on the burden of a compensation claim onto their own shoulders. This theoretically makes it considerably less risky on your part to claim compensation. If you lose there will be no legal fees to pay although there is a good chance that you will still have to pay some expenses which are not covered in the no-win, no-fee* deal. However the biggest financial risk is removed.

Some people can take out insurance policies to protect them against a lost case. These do much the same thing as no-win, no-fee*, but there are always premiums to pay and there is always the chance of falling foul of the small print. Depending on the amount of cover you have taken out, you may only be covered for some of the claims you’ve taken out. As such it’s a good idea to make certain that you understand what you’re entitled to.
What happens if you win?
As well as understanding your rights if things go wrong, it’s also a good idea to have a clear plan of action in case you do win. Fees will vary between different lawyers and if you’re not careful you could find yourself facing a surprisingly high fee. Make sure you understand what you’ll pay and at what point before choosing a law firm.
