    Whether you’re looking for an injury expert in South Shields or anywhere else in the country we believe one thing should be beyond doubt. Everyone deserves the chance to find a lawyer who offers a no win, no fee’ service. For us it’s about much more than simply giving up a compelling sounding offer to tempt people in – it’s a matter of principle. Here’s why.

    What is ‘no win, no fee’?

    ‘No win, no fee’ is a simple service offered by some personal injury law firms. Put very simply, it stipulates that the only circumstances in which you should part with any money are those in which you’ve won your case.

    Is it as simple as that?

    In theory yes; in practice not always. ‘No win, no fee’ is not as common as once used to be the case. As the economic climate becomes more challenging law firms naturally want a bit more reassurance in their work, so more of them will charge for any service regardless of anything that comes of it.

    Even so, that doesn’t mean that some are not eager to have their cake and eat it at the same time. In other words, what they’ll do is offer the appearance of ‘no win, no fee’ without the reality.

    You could find yourself paying for a number of things which is not strictly covered in the no win, no fee’ agreement.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we look on things a little differently. We believe that when we say ‘no win, no fee’ that should be precisely what we offer. No hidden charges, no nasty surprises. So, when you work with us you have the reassurance of knowing that the only time you will ever pay anything is if you win the case.

    How do I pay?

    If you win, there is a referral fee which is payable to us and you may pay a percentage of the compensation. The benefit of this is that all charges are loaded towards the end of the process which means we’re the ones who take on the risk.

    Why is this important?

    We feel it’s a point of principle that anyone who is looking for a personal injury lawyer should have the benefit of a no win, no fee’ service. We know how tough it is for everyone and we don’t want anyone to feel excluded from the legal system because of finances.
