Launched in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has become one of the largest and most popular personal injury firms in the country. That success has been down to one thing more than anything else – our ability to offer a deal known as no win no fee. This means that if you’re looking for injury solicitors in Sutton-on-the-Forest we offer a service that cannot be beaten.
About no win no fee
So what is no win no fee I hear you ask? Well, in short, this is exactly what it says. A deal which means you only pay if you win your case.
Its use became much more common after 1997 when the government abandoned legal aid for personal injury claims. This instantly made it much more difficult to make a claim and while it succeeded in reducing the number of frivolous claims which people made, it also meant that many people who desperately needed the support that compensation could bring didn’t have anywhere to turn.
In response law firms began offering no win no fee to some or all of their clients. This reopened the legal system to those who did not have endless finances to help them pay for lawyers. Suddenly they could pursue a claim knowing that if they were not successful then they would not have to pay a single penny.
It also reduced the number of overly optimistic claims. If a lawyer is working on the basis of no win no fee then they are less likely to take on a case if they think it doesn’t have strong merits.
Why no win no fee is important
Aside from the obvious benefits of reducing the risk of making a claim, no win no fee ties in the interests of both the lawyer and the client. If the client doesn’t win, then neither does the lawyer meaning there is a greater level of trust.
That’s not always the case. There are some lawyers working on the basis of traditional fees who will be tempted to encourage people to make claims in the sure and certain knowledge that they get paid either way. That can leave you with a big bill which only serves to add insult to injury if you’ve just lost your claim.
Finding injury solicitors in Sutton-on-the-Forest
When it comes to using no win no fee, though, it sometimes pays to be a little cautious. There are plenty of firms out there who offer what looks to be no win no fee but on closer examination it turns out to have a few hidden costs in there.
However, when we help you find injury solicitors in Sutton-on-the-Forest we do so in a way which is 100% genuine no win no fee. That means that whatever happens you won’t have to pay a single penny unless you win your case.
