The no-win, no-fee agreement
In 1998 the government abolished legal aid for personal injury claims. This was a good move because you either had to be really poor to get legal aid to make a claim or well off enough to afford the costs of litigation. If you were middle of the road, there was no help available and this made a bit of a mockery of the law that says you are entitled to compensation from someone that has caused you to be injured but couldn’t afford to make the claim.
No-win, no-fee has two big advantages. One is that you don’t have to pay anything to begin a claim and if your case loses you don’t need to pay any solicitors’ fees. This makes claims available to everyone, no matter how poor or rich they are. Secondly it means that the victim is taking no financial risk in making a claim – that is firmly on our shoulders.
