In such a desirable area as Kensington and Chelsea, you would have thought that they had outlawed any form of accidents. Sadly, these things can happen and although the chances are you are better off than most, it is surprising how expensive a claim can be. So, in this article we are going to show you why Accident Advice Helpline offers such a great proposition for anyone who suffers a motorbike accident in Kensington and Chelsea.
Paying for a motorbike accident in Kensington and Chelsea
The last few years have been ones of cuts to all sorts of government aid, and recently we saw solicitors marching on the streets to protest cuts to legal aid. The concern is that, even for people who would normally consider themselves quite well off, any kind of legal action can quickly become an expense you simply cannot afford.
With some of the expenses that can result from an accident in Kensington and Chelsea including medical bills, or loss of earnings, you can quickly work out that being injured is something many people simply cannot afford.
Also, when it comes to personal injury law, there has been no legal aid available there for many years – not since the government decided that this was one extravagance too many, far back in the late nineties. When you consider some court cases can drag on for many years with no guarantee of success at the end of them, you can quickly see that the costs will start to mount up.
How to pay
What can you do to protect yourself? The first thing you should look to do is to find a lawyer who offers ‘no win, no fee*’. Instinctively you might think that this sacrifices a bit of the quality you might expect – a bit like going for ‘buy one, get one free’ in the supermarket. But that is not necessarily the case.
Such is the problem of footing the legal bill for a court case that ‘no win, no fee*’ is quite common. The difference comes in how any law firm decides to treat the notion. Many will try to get the best of both worlds by offering something which looks and feels very much like ‘no win, no fee*’, but is in truth very different. This could be an insurance which they require to take out to protect you against the possibility of losing a case.
Although this reduces the amount you may have to pay it is still a long way from the classic ‘no win, no fee*’ concept we might expect.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will provide a lawyer who can help after a motorbike accident in Kensington and Chelsea and who offers a genuine ‘no win, no fee*’ offer. This means that whatever happens, you know that you are protected should the worst happen.
