Welcome to Accident Advice Helpline – one of the leading providers of personal injury legal services in the United Kingdom. Here you’ll find a rundown of the services we offer with a particular emphasis on how we can help you find no-win, no-fee lawyers in Ruthin.
Finding no-win, no-fee lawyers in Ruthin
Our service started in the year 2000 and from the outset had the overriding aim of making sure that no matter where someone was based, they would always have the full support of a dedicated and expert team of people who were committed to helping them make a no win no fee claim.
That was as important then as it is now. It came at a time when the entire personal injury scene was in chaos. There had been plenty of stories of claimants being forced into debt because of expensive legal fees, while there were also stories of others who were taking advantage of the legal aid system to launch spurious claims. For many, this seemed to be the start of a compensation culture similar to the one we already see in the USA.
A change is coming
Understandably perhaps, neither was an appealing prospect, so something was done to change it. The government ordered the removal of legal aid which came into force in 2000 – the same year we started work. This meant that if anyone wanted to make a claim they would have to pay the full fees, which on the face of things made life even harder to struggling claimants.
However, they replaced this with the idea of no-win, no-fee. The law firms would be able to charge more for those cases which were successful in return for waiving the fees of those which were not. It was also known as the Conditional Fees and there is also a term in Latin – which seems to confer legitimacy on almost anything these days.
So, this means that everyone has access to the law courts these days – not just the wealthy, but that doesn’t mean you should just grab the first lawyer you can find. Indeed, there are many no-win, no-fee lawyers in Ruthin and all of them offer a different proposition.
Some use the cover of no-win, no-fee to distract attention from some pretty unsavoury charging rates. They bump up prices to compensate them for anything they miss out on those cases they do not win. Others will take only the most simple cases – such as whiplash which tends to be settled quickly out of court, which means those in most need are left out in the cold.
Accident Advice Helpline on the other hand, will help with any type of claim. We have a huge range of experience within our team and will always be more than happy to help with anything you need.
