I need an Injury lawyer Keith
Keith is a small town in the Moray council area in northeast Scotland. It has a population of around 4,500. The oldest part of Keith dates to around 1180, where the Old Town still remains, now almost indistinguishable from the rest of the town.
In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury compensation claims, whether you live in Keith, or anywhere else in the UK. The only type of personal injury claim that can still use legal aid is medical negligence claims. This put claims out of reach of many people who could not afford the legal fees. The 1999 Finance Act allowed these cases to be dealt with under the conditional fee arrangement. This is an agreement between the law firm and client that if the case is lost, the client will make no payment. This agreement holds even if there is an out of court settlement and you have used an injury lawyer in Keith.
Is No Win No Fee the answer?
A legal case can be very expensive so the no win, no fee agreement helps provide access to lots of people who might not otherwise be able to afford it. They also provide a powerful incentive for the solicitor to work diligently on the clients’ case; as if they lose, they do not get paid. In situations where the client is paying the law firm an hourly rate for their services, they will have to pay the fees, win or lose. This means the law firm may not be quite so bothered about a win. Finally, as lawyers take on the litigation risk of the case, they are less likely to pursue claims which they are fairly certain will be unsuccessful. This does mean the “chancers” of this world are not so certain to be able to make a claim.
