Accident Advice Helpline is known for many things, but one of the most important is our commitment to working on the basis of ‘no win, no fee*’. What this means is that no matter what happens you will only have to pay money to us if you win your case. We do this because it’s a great way to ensure that everyone, no matter what their financial circumstances might be, can find a solicitor in Knowsley or indeed anywhere else.
About ‘no win, no fee*’
The idea of ‘no win, no fee*’ is, as it sounds, to provide a sense of reassurance to people that whatever happens they will only have to pay money if they win their case.
It’s particularly useful in personal injury law because there is no legal aid available for most personal injury cases. Equally, recent changes to the way in which lawyers are allowed to collect their success fees means the entire process can become very expensive. This is especially important considering the fact that many people are forced off work when they are injured and as a result they may not be able to afford legal representation without the safety net of no win no fee* to fall back on.
Things to watch out for
Of course it is not always as simple as it sounds. ‘No win, no fee*’ does not always mean what it says. It can also sometimes include an insurance policy which you have to pay out which guards against losing your case. Although the premiums are much less than the money you’d pay out in legal fees this is still not no win no fee* in the strictest sense of the word.
You should also remember that the chances are you will have to pay something out somewhere down the line if you win your case. Normally this comes out of the compensation sum you’re awarded but this can vary considerably. It’s important to know what you’re likely to pay out as you may find yourself in for a nasty surprise when the time comes to pay up.
