    The way in which we pay for personal injury claims has changed considerably over the past few years. This article is intended to show you some of the things you should always be considering and why, if you’re looking for Waveney no win no fee claims, are in our opinion, the best option.

    Waveney no win no fee claims

    When it comes to personal injury law the authorities always find themselves trying to tread a pretty fine line. On the one hand they don’t want people to be forced into financial difficulty because of their legal fees, but on the other, they don’t want to make it too easy so that people claim for cases that don’t have a good basis in law. The last thing anyone wants is a compensation culture, such as the one we have in the USA, in which small accidents attract huge settlements.

    As such they have been adjustments made to the way in which we make personal injury claims in this country. First of all, they removed the option of claiming legal aid for any personal injury claim, but in its place they put the conditional fee arrangement, which most of us better know as no win no fee. This means that if you make a claim, which is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay a single penny. It is designed to cushion the blow of losing a case and ensure that no matter what happens the only time you’ll have to pay will be if you win.

    Paying when you do win

    However, that still leaves the question of ‘what happens if you do win?’ The need to pay success fees would have meant that clients were under compensated for their claims, as they were forced to pay this out of the compensation settlement they received. To remedy this, the government allow law firms to claim success fees from the other side but this in itself created problems. The concern was that it had now become something that you could do almost without any penalty at all. If you lost a case your law firm covered the bill, but if you won the success fees were claimed against the other side. Insurance firms warned that this approach would push up premiums for everyone.

    Paying for a claim

    Today then you will have to pay success fees in most cases which means, as well as finding Waveney no win no fee lawyers, it is also extremely important that you find the best people for the job possible. That means matching your lawyer up with the type of accident you’ve suffered. Having someone who can work in this way will increase your chances of a successful outcome at the end of it all.
