You’ll probably know of South Yorkshire as one of many counties in England. It is home to Sheffield, Doncaster and Barnsley among other places, not to mention numerous smaller towns and villages dotted across the county. It is situated towards the north of England, almost equidistant between the western and eastern coastlines. As you might imagine in an area boasting a population of around 1.34 million people, there are some South Yorkshire no win, no fee claims arising every year.
Claims such as these can potentially arise for all kinds of reasons. For example, one person might trip over in a pothole and sprain their ankle, requiring medical attention and missing work for a few days because of it. Someone else might be involved in a car accident that was caused by someone else running through a red light. There are all kinds of reasons why someone might start thinking about making such a claim.
How does the no win, no fee claims procedure work?
In times gone by, it would have been very difficult for many people to make a claim for compensation following an injury that happened because of what someone else did (or perhaps did not do). The cost of claiming would have made it prohibitive, even if they had a good chance of winning that claim. The risk of doing so would simply have been too high for many.
Today, however, the no win, no fee claims model allows people to make a claim with the full knowledge they would not be in any danger if they lost their claim. Accident Advice Helpline regularly takes on cases for all kinds of people who were injured by a third party in an accident. Those people know there will be no solicitors’ fees to pay if their claim does not result in the success they are hoping for.
How much could you win?
It is impossible to give an accurate amount because so many factors go into making that decision if someone is entitled to receive compensation. For example, there is a good chance that the amount would be higher if the injury was more serious, and if it lasted longer.
