Most people who have been injured in an accident that was not their fault try to set up what is called a “no win, no fee** agreement” with the personal injury lawyer that is acting for them. This is because the majority of injured people are suffering financially as well as trying to cope with their physical or psychological injuries. The financial problems usually occur because they are not able to work in the way that they used to. Perhaps they cannot work at all; cannot work as many hours as they used to or cannot do the extra overtime that earned them a bonus. At a time like this the last thing that they can afford is expensive up front legal fees. Whilst a no win, no fee** agreement seems to be a great idea, some people still struggle to set them up. Here are some examples of problems that people in this situation have faced and the solutions to those problems.
Problem 1: “I don’t know what a no win, no fee** agreement is”
Most people are very inexperienced in making claims for personal injury compensation and so they do not always understand some of the language that is used. The solution to this problem is to contact a trusted company that has a huge amount of expertise and experience in this area. Accident Advice Helpline is a claims management company that has been advising people about their no win, no fee** agreement for over 14 years. They are backed by trusted consumer champion Esther Rantzen. They will explain that in a no win, no fee** agreement, you will not have to pay legal fees at all if you do not win your case.
Problem 2: “I don’t want to set up a no win, no fee** agreement and then find out that I do not have a genuine claim”
There is a simple solution to this one. Accident Advice Helpline friendly, professional advisers will use a unique 30 second test to assess if you have grounds to make a claim. If there are grounds, you can then make a decision about whether you want to go ahead. You can call them whenever you want, that’s 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Problem 3: “I must have a lawyer who will understand the circumstances of my particular injury.”
Accident Advice Helpline has a solution for this. They have a national network of solicitors (legal partners) that have expertise and experience in all types of personal injury claims. It will not be difficult to find just the right one for your case. Most cases are handled over the phone. You may need to attend one appointment with a doctor for a medical assessment. The amount of compensation that you will get and the time that it takes to sort out your case cannot be guaranteed.
