We have all seen them; the flyers in doctors surgeries, the televisions ads claiming that a company offers a no win no fee* service. It makes it all sound very tempting to anyone considering making a personal injury claim; but a little background knowledge goes a long way when it comes to finding the correct compensation claim provider; if you need an injury lawyer, Carnwath will not have too much choice but you can establish a lot of facts before you approach someone to help you.
What is no win no fee*?
Even the best claims company however experienced, cannot process a claim free of charge. It is after all how they make their living. So no win no fee* means exactly what it says. That if you win you will not be liable to pay a fee. This does not mean that there are no fee*s attached to the case; these will have been built into your overall compensation payout from the other party so you will not notice them. Any top provider will explain its charges and policies to you clearly from the outset. There is never a guaranteed result in a personal injury claim and no top ‘no win no fee*’ company will give you a payout figure before you begin. At best all they can offer is an estimate.
Injury lawyer in Carnwath – Other costs
Apart from the actual fees charged by the company themselves for their services you are likely to only incur charges if you need to attend medical appointments; the professional you are visiting has to charge for his time and this bill will all be added to your account. You should always discuss with your personal injury lawyer what will happen to your incurred costs should you lose your claim and not win. Many claims can be handled via telephone so that costs incurred are minimal; but never enter a personal injury claim without fully understanding what type of bill you may be presented with should the worst happen. One thing to be very wary of is that under a no win no fee* agreement you may be expected to pay the costs of the other party should you lose.
One of the best moves that you can make before starting a claim with an injury lawyer IN Carnwath is to get some help and advice from an experienced body such as Accident Advice Helpline.
