The process of finding an injury solicitor in Rotherhithe can be far from straightforward, with the outcome uncertain. In these trying economic times risking money on something which has no guaranteed ending in sight is not something you’ll want to risk. For this reason, when you work with us at Accident Advice Helpline we’ll offer the comfort of a no-win, no-fee service.
But here’s a question worth thinking about. What does no-win, no-fee actually mean and can you trust it to do what it says on the tin.
About no-win, no-fee
We live in a cynical world and people tend to view exciting claims from companies with suspicion, so if a law firm tells you they work on a no-win, no-fee basis, you’re entitled to be wary, and with good reason.
The practice of no-win, no-fee is by no means as common as it once was, as new guidelines have come into force about how lawyers collect their fees. However, many firms are keen to retain the appearance of no-win, no-fee in order to reap the benefits.
They can do this by offering something which sticks to the letter of the offer if not the actual spirit. In other words, you may find yourself paying out for stuff which doesn’t count under the no-win, no-fee agreement.
At Accident Advice Helpline, when we say the words no-win, no-fee we actually mean it. We offer a genuine 100% service which ensures you will only pay solicitor fees if you win. That means if, for any reason, you don’t win then you don’t pay solicitor fees.
Why is that important
We feel no-win, no-fee is still an important feature of personal injury law – in fact it’s more vital now than ever before. This is because if people don’t think they can risk making a claim, many will shy away from doing so and as a result miss out on the support they could use.
How do you get your money?
Whenever a firm offers a no-win, no-fee service it’s important to find out how they collect their fees. In the case of Accident Advice Helpline there is a referral fee which we collect while you may pay out a portion of your compensation winnings to the lawyer. This loads payment towards the back end and ensures you only pay out if you have secured the money to do so through a compensation claim.
