Whether you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Alness, or anywhere else in the UK it’s often tempting to be diverted by all sorts of basic misconceptions about the space. That’s why we’ve put together this article to debunk some of the most common myths surrounding this space.
Making a claim is free
There are some people who assume that if they make a claim they can claim legal aid and as such make a claim with no financial risk to themselves. This is not the case – the government removed legal aid from personal injury cases in the late nineties so if you want to make a claim then sooner or later you’re going to have to pay for it.
One of the reasons why some people think it might be free is because they have spoken to people who have not had to pay for their legal fees. This is most likely because they work on a no win no fee* basis which makes it much easier to make a claim. If you don’t win your case then you won’t have to pay.
Lawyers are expensive
That feeds into our next point. Because they will now have to pay, many people think that lawyers are extremely expensive. However, because many now offer ‘no win, no fee*’ as standard the question of cost is not as important as it might have been. With ‘no win, no fee*’ you only pay if you have won your case in which instance you can simply pay the fees from the compensation you’ve been awarded. We find that’s a much more sensible way of working in most cases it eases all the worries of launching a claim. That’s why we made ‘no win, no fee*’ a key part of what we do when we started Accident Advice Helpline back in 2000.
