When you have been in an accident in Warrington, no win no fee personal injury claims can be your route to the justice you deserve without taking any significant financial risks with your future. Here’s how it can all work.
Warrington no win no fee claims
The idea of no win no fee came about at the end of the nineties when the government first began cutting back on legal aid and then abolished it altogether. At the time the idea was to simplify a system, which had become unwieldy and difficult to use. It also kept people from claiming when they didn’t have much of a leg to stand on. In particular the idea was to ensure the legal system continued to be accessible to everyone, regardless of their own financial resources.
As it sounds this meant that anyone who made a claim would only have to pay if they won their case. That sounds simple, but complications exist when it comes to paying after a successful claim. For a long while lawyers were allowed to claim all their expenses, including success fees, from the other side. However, the insurance industry, which had to pay most of these claims, lobbied hard against this claiming and this would lead to increased insurance premiums for everyone. The government agreed and stopped law firms from claiming from the other side with a law which came into force in 2013.
This means that if you make a claim you will have to pay success fees. This will normally come out of your compensation claim. However, the government has pushed up the amount that can be claimed, so while you’re paying more, you should in theory receive more in compensation.
Getting the right lawyer
However, that all somewhat depends on whether you have the right lawyer on your side or not. There is a huge difference in the quality of service different law firms can provide on any single case. Personal injury law is a complicated beast and most firms will only be able to help on those cases, which they have the in house expertise. For example, you may find one firm which specialises in road traffic accidents and another which focuses on claims for medical negligence. You’ll need to find someone who understands the type of case you’re fighting.
