What is a personal injury lawyers no win no fee arrangement?
Legal Aid was abolished for personal injury cases in the late 1990s. In place, many solicitors introduced the Conditional Fee Arrangement, more commonly known as the no-win, no-fee arrangement.
The no-win, no-fee arrangement means that if you lose your personal injuries compensation claim then you do not have to pay your lawyer’s legal fees. The no-win, no-fee arrangement gives people a chance to obtain legal representation without up-front expensive legal bills. It is a fair way of helping people that may not otherwise have been able to take legal action and claim the compensation they rightly deserve.

- Report the accident. Depending on the type of accident you were involved in, report it to the relevant authorities. For example if you were in a car accident, inform the police and your insurance company. If you had an accident at work, inform your manager and enter the incident in the accident book.
