When you’ve been hurt in an accident in Kingston upon Thames, making a no win, no fee compensation claim can be your only option to get the justice to which you should be entitled. This is because legal costs have reached such a scale these days that it is becoming increasingly challenging to take the risks you might need to in order to fight for your rights. In this article we’ll look at what’s involved in paying for a claim and how you can give yourself the best chance of making stress free claims in Kingston upon Thames.
No win, no fee
When you first start to consider making a personal injury claim one of your first thoughts will be whether or not you can afford to pay if you lose. Lawyers don’t come cheap and the thought of paying the bill, without compensation to absorb, it is enough to fill people with dread. This is why it’s so important to make sure you understand what you are and are not entitled to, as well as how much it is going to cost.
The idea of no win no fee was set up to help people in a similar position to you. If you lose a case your law firm will waive their expenses. Therefore they will take on the risk and shoulder the burden if things go wrong. In a sense this is nothing more than basic justice. You will of course be relying significantly on their skills and experience in pressing a claim and if it goes wrong then you’re entitled to ask questions about why. Moreover, the best thing about no win no fee is that it ensures the legal system remains open and accessible to everyone, regardless of their personal circumstances.
Other ways of paying
However no win no fee is not the only way of paying for a claim. Another popular option is something called claims insurance. With this you take out a policy, which covers you if you lose your case. The downside of this is that you will still have to pay insurance premiums whether or not you win, so it’s not as complete a system as no win no fee. This is one of the reasons why, at Accident Advice Helpline, we have always used no win no fee as the way in which we work.
