When you’re looking for injury solicitors, it pays to plan ahead. There are many things you should be aware of and one of the most important will be how you are going to pay for it.
Finding the cash
Since 1997 personal injury claims have not been entitled to any form of legal aid which means you must decide how you are going to pay for it. There are many ways to approach this and the best option may depend on your personal finances.
The traditional way of paying for lawyers is that you pay legal fees which covers them for their time. This is off putting for many people when they consider whether or not to make a claim as it means finding money with no real guarantee that it will pay out. As such it’s a bit of a risk and means you need to have significant sums in reserve before you even look at making a claim.
No win no fee
A seemingly easier option is to go for a law firm which offers no win no fee. This concept grew in popularity after the removal of legal aid as law firms sought ways in which they could continue to make it possible for some people to make claims. For someone who has limited funds it can be difficult to justify the expense, especially if the injury has forced them off work.
The advantages of this option are pretty clear. For starters it makes the entire enterprise somewhat less risky. If you know that the only way in which you’ll have to pay money out is if you win your case then you’re likely to feel a whole lot more comfortable about making a claim in the first place.
Equally, when a law firm is working on the basis of no win no fee claim they are likely to be more vigorous in helping you win your case. After all, if they don’t win the case then they do not get paid.
Another place where people struggle is in finding the advice they need before they decide whether or not they should pursue a claim. Picture this scene – there you are feeling pretty sure that you are entitled to make a claim, but you want advice from an expert to help you make up your mind. The trouble is finding one will involve paying out a fee.
