If you go looking in any business directory you will find plenty of possible lawyers who can help you make a claim, but how do you choose between them and, in particular, how do you minimise the risk to your finances. This article will show you all you need to know when looking for no win no fee lawyers in Shepway.
About no win no fee
The idea behind no win no fee is simple – if you don’t win you don’t have to pay anything. This is intended to ensure that you’re not putting your finances on the line when making a claim. In the past there have been all sorts of horror stories of people who made a claim, but were driven further and further into debt. No win no fee is an attempt to address that balance.
What you do pay
However, you shouldn’t just go out and start looking for no win no fee lawyers in Shepway who can help you make a claim. Instead it’s worth looking at what you will pay and when. There have been some changes in the way law firms are allowed to make claims in the past few years.
One of these includes the payment of success fees. In an attempt to reduce the amount law firms can make from a personal injury claim, they are no longer to claim success fees from the other side, but this leaves them looking to their own clients when trying to get paid.
This often leaves them looking for a slice of the compensation estimate. This should be at around 25% of any claim which means the amount you pay should never exceed the amount you receive – another thing which makes it easier for anyone considering making a claim.
