Luton no-win, no-fee compensation can be difficult to find unless you take the right steps. In this quick article we’ll look at the things you should consider and do which can improve your chances of winning and minimise the risks you take in going to the courts.
Luton no-win, no-fee compensation
Risk is a part and parcel of any compensation claim. Although the majority of cases we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline are settled out of court, you’re never entirely certain about what might happen which is why it’s so important to have a back up plan.
We call this option the conditional fee arrangement or no-win, no-fee. If you do not win your case, you will not have to pay a single penny. Think of it as a way of ensuring that no matter what happens you will be protected. With the removal of legal aid from personal injury cases there is always the risk of people being forced into considerable financial trouble when they decide to make a personal injury claim.
Finding a lawyer
When you’ve been injured your insurance company may tell you that they can recommend a law firm to work with you. However, it is common for insurance companies to have financial arrangements with law firms which involves them sending people in their direction in return for commission on any business they secure. This is why it’s always a good idea to make sure you choose your own law firm because that one might not be right for you.
Personal injury law is also notoriously complicated and most lawyers only focus on one or two types of injuries. They should tell you what they can help with on their website or any sales literature, but if not it’s best to ask before committing to anything,
So if you have been involved in a road traffic accident, for example, it’s a good idea to find someone who has a long track record in working with this type of claim.
Assessing your injuries
The scale of your injuries is something you may need to consider carefully. Many people underestimate how badly they have been hurt either because they don’t think an issue is connected or an initial medical assessment misses certain things. It can sometimes be useful to seek a second opinion so you make sure everything has been caught in time.
