No win no fee Cartmel claims – an explanation of conditional fee agreements
If you use the proper term, conditional fee agreements, many victims would not realise exactly what you are talking about because they are more commonly known as no win no fee agreements.
Personal injuries that have been caused by someone else have been around as long as mankind, but the victims have not always been able to claim compensation. Records have been found of compensation claims in the UK as far back as the 18th century, but unless you had enough money to cover the legal costs, you could not claim the compensation you were entitled to.
This situation continued until about the same time as the NHS was set up, and then low income victims could possibly use legal aid to help them. This was means tested though, and still left a huge amount of blameless victims that could not claim what was rightfully theirs.
Then in a cost cutting exercise in 1998, the government withdrew legal aid from the personal injury claim industry, and we were back to only the rich getting the justice any victim deserves.
This made a mockery of the law though which quite clearly states that if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are entitled to claim recompense from the guilty party for the suffering they have caused you to endure. The law was there, but not many victims could afford to implement it.
Then as from April 2000, conditional fee agreements were extended from other civil cases to include personal injury claims. Suddenly, at last anyone injured in an accident that was not their fault could make a claim for compensation, no matter what their financial circumstances were.
