    Uttlesford No Win No Fee

    Any personal injury claim runs the element of risk – there is the possibility that your lawyer may not do a good job, the evidence may not stack up or the courts may decide to find against you on the day. The question is: who should shoulder that risk. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a very clear opinion on that which is why if you live in Uttlesford ‘no win, no fee’ claims are the best way to go.

    Uttlesford ‘no win, no fee’ claims

    The idea of no win, no fee’ is simple – as your lawyers we will take on the risk of making a claim which means you do not have to. We will waive our fees in the event that your claim is unsuccessful which means you will not be exposed to any financial risks as a result of a lost claim. We think this is important in making sure the legal system remains open and accessible to everyone regardless of their personal or financial situation. We think it’s a fairer way of working.

    Alternatives to paying

    There are other options for people to take. One of the most common is to take out claims insurance. This works in much the same way as no win no fee in that it covers you in the event that a claim is unsuccessful. However, you will have to pay a premium for this service and because insurance companies are highly adept at getting out of their obligations you may also find that there is a limit to the amount they are prepared to pay out in the event of a successful claim. This means that even if you do lose you could end up having to pay a portion of your legal fees.

    If you do win then many of those fees can be recovered from the other side such as court fees. Until recently all legal costs could come from the opposition, but that changed a couple of years ago when the government decided to stop lawyers claiming success fees from the other side. This means that they have to get them from their own clients which impacts on the amount you’ll be able to claim. However, to make up for this they have increased the amount that can be awarded which means things even out to a certain extent.

    Getting the right lawyer

    But while Uttlesford no win, no fee’ claims are useful the most important thing to do is to make sure that the lawyer you choose is the right one for the task. There are many different law firms around and only some of them will specialise in your type of accident.
