Ask anyone and the biggest worry they have when trying to find a solicitor in Newchurch is how much it is going to cost. We live in difficult times in which our budgets are coming under pressure from all quarters, so it’s important to be certain that we can pay for it.
Paying for your case
The landscape has become significantly more complex over the last few years, thanks to changes in the way claims are paid for. Once upon a time legal aid was available, but that ended at about the same time that Britpop went out of fashion.
More recently, there have been changes to the way in which lawyers collect their fees. They used to be able to get their success fees from the other side, which reduced the cost to you when you made a successful claim. This no longer happens, which means they now have to collect these from you which is much less fun.
A safety net
Given the potential scale of legal bills, therefore, the potential financial costs of a claim can be considerable, and for many it represents a real risk. You have to be really certain of your case before you risk making a claim, and how many of us can really say that?
However, there is another option which is known widely as no win no fee. This is a simple promise which states that if for any reason you do not win your case, you shouldn’t have to pay a single penny. This is something to which we stay true at Accident Advice Helpline, and we continue to do so to this day.
How you will pay
However, as beneficial as no win no fee is, it does not remove the burden of paying altogether. If you do win your case, then you will have to pay something to your lawyer. This depends on the actual deal that you reach with your firm, but it often revolves around the principle of a percentage of the compensation fee. Not only does this reduce the pain of handing over the sum, but it also means that your lawyer is incentivised to do as much as they possibly can in your interests.
