Welshpool no win no fee law firm
When legal aid was removed from the majority of personal injury law cases back in the year 2000, it potentially left the majority of people with a major problem. Did they make a claim and risk having to pay legal fees, even if they were unsuccessful, or did they decide that they could not afford the risk?
To remedy this situation, the government introduced the idea of the conditional fee arrangement. This stated that if you did not win your case, you would not have to pay a single penny. It was a great way of reducing the inherent risks that came from making any kind of personal injury claims. It meant people could make claims safe in the knowledge that their law firm would pick up the bill afterwards. To compensate law firms for this risk, the government allowed them to slightly increase the amount they could charge, which meant people who made successful claims were in part paying the fees of people who were not successful.
When you do win
Of course that still leaves the question of ‘what happens when you do win?’ If that happens the majority of a law firm’s costs can be recovered from the other side. The exception to this is the success fee, which until recently could be claimed back from the opposition. However, this is no longer possible, which means the chances are you’ll have to find the money yourself. However to help you in this situation the government has increased the amount that can be awarded for certain claims, which means it should hopefully even itself out in the end.
Because of this, it’s more important than ever to make sure you choose the right Welshpool no win no fee law firm to take your case on. You’ll need to look for one which has experience in your type of claim and is capable of giving you the very best service to help you not only win, but to ensure you receive the full amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
