We deal with a range of different accident types at Accident Advice Helpline, including those in the workplace, on the roads and in public buildings. If you have been travelling as a passenger on public transport, we may also be able to help. We can process claims for a public transport accident in Hounslow, or anywhere else around the UK, on the basis of no win, no fee to safeguard your finances.
What exactly is no win, no fee?
This is a system of funding personal injury claims in the UK. Its formal title is a Conditional Fee Agreement, but no win no fee is the term that people often recognise. It was first introduced in the 1990s when Legal Aid was withdrawn for cases of this type, and has become very popular because it makes it easier for innocent victims of accident to claim compensation.
Essentially, there are two aspects of no win no fee:
- An advance payment in legal fees is not required, so you can start your claim with reduced financial pressure
- If you lose the case, you will not be liable to pay your solicitor’s legal fees
Claiming in this way alleviates your financial risk when taking legal action, and encourages more people to seek the justice they deserve through the courts.
Will my claim for a public transport accident in Hounslow be no win no fee?
All our solicitors work on the basis of no win, no fee. We have a team of legal specialists working in-house at Accident Advice Helpline, providing reassurance that your vital claim is not being outsourced to an external provider.
We feel that it is important for our customers to know who is dealing with their claim, and offer regular updates on its progress. All claims are made in this way, whether it is a public transport accident in Hounslow, an accident at work, or a slip, trip or fall in a public place.
