Making a personal injury claim is known to be one of the more stressful experiences anyone can go through, and when you see how much most law firms charge it’s no surprise. The cost is enough to consider if you have won a case and have compensation to fall back on, but if you lose then it could force you into a world of financial difficulty. This article will look at why, if you live in Lincolnshire, no win no fee compensation can be so important in helping you to move along with your life and how we can help.
Have you slipped or tripped in Lincolnshire?
If you’ve slipped or tripped in Lincolnshire, or suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a no win no fee compensation claim.
As the name suggests, no win no fee was set up back in the year 2000 to provide protection when you lost a case. If you did not win, you would not be forced to pay a single penny. It was a great way for you to protect yourself financially and avoid being forced into any financial difficulty because you decided to stand up for your legal entitlements.
Other ways of paying
Although it looks and sounds like a great deal it should be noted that this is not the only way of paying for your claim. Many people take out personal injury claims insurance, which protects them in the event that they are not successful with a claim. This can be helpful, but it’s worth noting that there are premiums, which you will have to pay regardless of what happens, and that these cannot be claimed back from the other side if you win your case. There may also be an excess on any compensation claimed, which means you may need to pay some or all of your fees if you lose your case.
However, at Accident Advice Helpline we believe in the power of no win no fee to level up the playing field. It means that everyone has access to the legal system which should, in theory at least, be one of life’s basic rights.
