Do you need no win no fee* solicitors in Abercanaiad?
Accidents can be terrible things. The thought of being in one is enough to bring on the cold sweats. Yet here is something about accidents involving cars that are doubly frightening.
Whatever the reason, nobody can deny that it is a traumatic experience. If you have been involved in a car accident, the last thing on your mind is likely to be compensation. There should be some room in your mind for it, though, because it is your legal and moral right.
No win no fee* solicitors in Abercanaid
Lots of claimants who are awarded injury compensation use the money to cover the cost of out-of-pocket expenses. These can include things such as bus, train, or taxi fares to attend hospital appointments.
The conditional fee agreement (no-win, no-fee*)
The conditional fee agreement was introduced after the scrapping of legal aid for injury claims. This was done to ensure that those who needed representation would get it, regardless of their finances.
You have probably heard of no-win, no-fee* that many lawyers here in the UK talk about – its proper name is the conditional fee agreement. Not all solicitors and law firms work under this agreement, preferring a guaranteed payday to offering the best value for money service possible.
But what is the conditional fee agreement, and what does it mean in terms of an accident in which you are involved?
Well, there are some certain criteria governing the qualification of accident claims, and these include certain conditions that have to be met:
- The accident in question, the one for which you are claiming, must have been the fault of somebody else and not you.
- No more than three years may have passed between the date of the accident and the date of the accident claim, although this is flexible in some cases — if the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident, then they have between the ages of 18 and 21 to make a claim. Also, if the case involves industrial disease, the claimant has three years from the date of diagnosis, not the date of contraction.
- You must have sought medical help for your injuries following the accident. This ensures that your injuries are on record, and are linked to the accident in which you were involved.
