If you’re thinking about using Accident Advice Helpline to find a personal injury lawyer, then it is a good idea to know a bit about what it is you’re looking for and most importantly what the firm you’re working with is offering. There are many different firms advertising their services on the television, but how do you know what they’re really offering?
Here’s one of the most common clams made by some of these companies, that what they can offer is a no-win, no-fee service. This is a great way of working, that means that you do not have to pay out any legal fees in the unfortunate event that you are unsuccessful in your case. It is a safety net, if you like, a way of making sure that whatever happens, your own financial well-being is not put at risk because you make a decision to pursue a claim.
Or at least that’s the theory. It is more than possible for a firm to advertise itself as offering no-win, no-fee, but still manage to sneak a few fees under the radar. What’s more you could find yourself paying quite a large amount from your compensation sum when the case has finished.
While it is likely that you will pay your lawyer by giving them a cut of the compensation, you should know how much this is likely to be before you get into it. A lawyer could try to push their luck by taking a little too much.
In essence you should expect to receive at least 70% of the compensation you are awarded. But whatever happens, when you find a lawyer you want to work with, make sure you understand the payment structure before you start.
