There is an old mantra in war – you should never pick a fight until you’re sure of winning it – and this is something which does hold true when you’re looking for Ryedale personal injury claims. This is how to find out whether you can claim and to be as sure as possible of what the outcome will be.
Making Ryedale personal injury claims
There is always a debate going on about whether or not it’s becoming too easy. A few years ago when lawyers were claiming success fees from the other side there was a fear that people would be making claims for injuries which were only marginal at best. However, the truth is that with ‘no win, no fee*’ it actually makes it less likely that people will make over optimistic claims.
About ‘no win, no fee*’
The idea behind no win no fee* is pretty much as simple and straightforward as it sounds. If your lawyer is unable to help you win your case for any reason, then you will not have to pay anything in terms of legal fees. It’s a way of reducing the financial risks associated with making a claim and ensuring that no matter what happens your own finances will not be placed at risk because of a failed claim.
However it’s also a way of ensuring your law firm plays straight with you. When you contact a firm to ask for their advice you want them to be honest and only suggest making a claim if they think you have a realistic prospect of winning. With an old fashioned fee structure they might be obliged to give some extremely marginal claims the benefit of the doubt. After all what does it matter to them? They get paid either way. However, with ‘no win, no fee*’ they only get paid if they win and so they are unlikely to take on a case if they don’t think it has merit.
However, there are problems when it comes to people who are looking to make claims for serious, long lasting or complex injuries. With ‘no win, no fee*’, a law firm may worry about taking this on because not only do the expenses of making a claim increase, but do too do the risks of losing. As such they may feel that they cannot risk taking on a case even if they think they have a good chance.
