No win no fee arrangements for personal injury claims
If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault and have been injured, you might be thinking about claiming personal injury compensation.
Reasons for claiming compensation
- Road traffic accident
- Accident at work
- Medical negligence
- Slip or fall in the street, shop or other public place
Time limits for personal injury compensation claims
You have 3 years from the date of the accident, or 3 years from when you first realised that you were injured in which you can make a claim for compensation.
Children who were under 18 at the time of the accident have 3 years from the date of their 18th birthday in which they can make a claim.
No win no fee personal accident solicitors agreements
In the majority of cases of personal injury you cannot get legal aid (financial help) to claim compensation. This would mean that you would have to pay expensive legal fees upfront and that you could possibly lose money if you lost the case.
Obviously this would put off many victims from claiming the compensation they rightly deserve. No win no fee or the conditional fee arrangement as it is also known is where the fee for a service is only payable if there is a favourable result. In most cases the fee will be claimed from the negligent party.
No win no fee personal accident solicitors make an agreement with you the client that if the case is lost then no payment is required for their legal services. This is especially important in cases of personal injury where you may be suffering financial losses and are unable to afford to pay expensive legal fees, with a risk of losing money you are unlikely to make a claim for your personal injuries.
