Personal injury claims in Neath Port Talbot

0

The history of making personal injury claims in Neath Port Talbot with the no win, no fee* agreement goes back quite a few years.

If we start at the beginning of the 20th century, although personal injury claims in Neath Port Talbot have been around much longer than that, to make a claim you had to be rich enough to know that if you lost you could afford to pay the legal fees. Obviously, the risks involved put off many innocent victims from making a claim.

Legal aid for personal injury claims in Neath Port Talbot

About the same time as the NHS was introduced to Britain, so was the legal aid system. To start with it could be used for any type of legal process, but it was means tested and only helped the poorest of society. This still left a huge amount of innocent victims unable to make personal injury claims in Neath Port Talbot.

Over the following years, certain types of legal cases were removed from the legal aid system, personal injury claims becoming a victim in 1998. This returned us to the situation where only the wealthy among us could claim compensation – ‘money to money’ as the old saying goes.

Then in April 2000, there was a breakthrough when the conditional fee arrangement came into play. This agreement was already in use in some areas of the law, and extending it to personal injury claims suddenly meant that anyone could make a claim, and it did not matter how rich or poor they were.

The workings of conditional fee agreements

The agreement works on the basis that it is a condition of winning the case that the lawyers get paid, and if they do not win, they do not get a penny. This very quickly earned the nickname no win, no fee*, and that is what most people know it as, but the name does mean exactly what it says – no money is asked for at the start of a claim, and no money is asked for if the claim is lost.
