About 70 per cent of innocent accident victims never claim the compensation they could be entitled to. There are various reasons given as to why this is, the most common one being they are concerned about having to pay legal fees if they lose. They may have heard of no win no fee* in Ladbroke Grove, or anywhere else, but do not really understand what it means.
What is no win no fee* in Ladbroke Grove?
No win no fee* in Ladbroke Grove means that you do not have to pay any money upfront to get your claim started. Its also means that should your claim prove unsuccessful, you will not have to pay your solicitors fees. This takes away all the financial worries of making a claim, at a time when finances can be stretched because of the accident. No win no fee* in Ladbroke Grove gives every innocent victim of an accident the same access to justice they deserve, no matter how big or small their bank balance is.
No win no fee* makes claiming fairer
Before no win no fee* was introduced, in most cases it was only the rich people hurt in accidents that were not their fault that could afford to risk making a claim. This was the situation up until the introduction of the welfare state in the 1940’s when legal aid came into being. This was means tested, so if you were really poor you could claim this to finance your compensation, although you had to pay it back out of any compensation you were awarded.
Towards the end of the last century, legal aid for personal injury claims was abolished and it was replaced with the conditional fee agreement, better known as no win no fee*. It is a condition of winning that the lawyers get paid, but it does not discriminate between the rich and the poor so is a much fairer system.
