Ipswich ‘no win, no fee’ compensation
The way in which we pay for personal injury cases has changed considerably in the last few years. What was once covered under legal aid no longer has that protection which means an alternative option is required.
This is why you may want to make Ipswich ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims. As the name suggests, this provides you with a degree of protection when making a claim. You will only have to pay if you win your case, which instantly removes the major financial barrier which faces most people.
However confusion still exists regarding what happens if you do win and that’s what we’re looking to address here. Over the years, this has changed somewhat. For a long while, lawyers were allowed to claim all their costs back from the other side, which means you effectively did not have to pay even if you did win. Understandably the insurance companies objected to this – they are the ones who pay out the majority of claims so it is in their interests to ensure it is as difficult for people to make a claim as possible.
They argued that lawyers should not be able to include success fees as part of the costs they claim back from the other side and the government agreed. This means a law firm has a choice about whether or not absorb the cost of success fees or pass them onto the individual. Either way represents a risk. On the one hand, passing the costs on means you will be under compensated, but if they do not do this then there is a realistic possibility that they may struggle to survive.
However, there have been provisions to increase the amount which is awarded for different accidents so this should mean that it all evens out in the end.
