When you’ve been hurt in an accident, the first question you might ask is – can I make a claim, but the second might be “how much is this going to cost?” For this reason we’ll now look at how to find a legal specialist in Newburgh who can help you fight a claim in an affordable way.
Paying for claims
The way in which claims are paid for these days has changed substantially. Gone are the days when legal aid covered the bill – now you’ll have to pay for it yourself. There have also been recent changes to the ways in which lawyers are allowed to collect their fees. While they used to be allowed to collect success fees from the other side that is now no longer the case. They will have to collect their fees from you which will increase the amount you have to pay.
For those who have bottomless pockets, that’s not a problem, but what about the rest of us? That makes the process of making a personal injury claim quite a challenge. At a time when we might be forced off work and our ability to earn in general might be reduced, how can we possibly be expected to afford to make a claim? It all seems a little bit too much.
No win no fee
But fear not because help is at hand in the form of a way of paying which is called no win no fee. This promises that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny. It’s a great way of working and ensures that the financial risks of making a claim are kept to the absolute minimum.
What you do pay
However, don’t just find a legal specialist in Newburgh who offers no win no fee and think you’re in luck because there is still considerable variation in how fees are collected. Some lawyers will charge a lot more than others and because they normally take a percentage of the compensation sum the extent of this fee is sometimes hidden. In general you should expect to receive at least 70% of your compensation fee, so if you get less than this you are entitled to ask serious questions.
