The first step in finding a suitable solicitor is to hit the search engines, possibly with something like no win no fee* lawyers in Redcar and Cleveland. You will be shown pages, after pages of results – some relevant, some not so much. Even if there are lots of ‘relevant’ results for no win no fee* lawyers in Redcar and Cleveland, there is guarantee that any of them will be any good for you.
One of the first things to do, of course, is to change the search term itself. There is an argument that local solicitors may not be the best option at all, due to the obvious limitations of things like required experience and speciality area. So, the best search may not be for ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers in Redcar and Cleveland but for a national law firm instead.
Plain English help and advice, not jargon and confusion
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we only use plain English when we speak with claimants, and we provide as much information for people as we possibly can, via this website. This is because we want things to be as easy as they can be and we want the people that come to us to be well informed.
The last thing anybody wants is to feel left out of, or under informed about, a process that involves them on a more than superficial way – and lets face it, nothing is more personal than an a personal injury; especially if it was not your fault.
How much does it cost to obtain the services of a solicitor?
Legal aid for personal injury claims was withdrawn by the UK government some time ago, potentially making it extremely costly for anyone wishing to bring a claim against a guilty party. What isn’t common knowledge, and what many law firms are literally banking on people not knowing, is that the government also introduced the conditional fee agreement at around the same time.
The conditional fee agreement allows people to file personal injury claims, without paying anything upfront and without being charged for anything if the case is not successful. This meant that regardless of financial situations, those that needed help obtaining compensation would be be able to do so.
This agreement became known as the ‘no win, no fee* agreement’.
At Accident Advice Helpline, the ‘no win, no fee*’ agreement has been a key part of our business service ever since we began back in the year 2000. So, to find out how we can help with your compensation claim just give us a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone – the call is free, and so is our advice.
