    No win no fee lawyers in Test Valley


    What’s the difference, besides from the obvious, between no win no fee lawyers in Test Valley and those who have a traditional fee structure? In this article, we’ll look at that one decision you might have to take when choosing a lawyer – which payment option would you like to go for?

    Finding no win no fee lawyers in Test Valley

    Today, the majority of personal injury claims are made on a no win no fee basis. This started in 2000, when rules removing legal aid from the majority of personal injury cases came into force. To give people a safeguard in their cases, no win no fee was brought in so people would not be driven further into debt if they lost their case.

    As the name implies, no win no fee represents an agreement between the client and the law firm that if they lose the case they will waive all legal fees. In return, at the time that legal aid came into force, the government included measures which would allow law firms to charge more when they won their case, thereby offsetting the losses incurred through those cases in which they were unsuccessful.

    Other forms of payment

    As well as finding no win no fee lawyers in Test Valley, you might also opt to take out legal expenses insurance. This covers your legal costs in the event that you are unsuccessful with a claim. It offers the same reassurance and safety net that no win no fee provides, but naturally you will have to watch out for the small print in the insurance contract; they love nothing more than finding ways to wrangle their way out of paying what’s due, so keep a beady eye out.

    Arguments against no win no fee

    Those firms which do not work on a no win no fee basis argue that when you win your case their charges are lower, so if you feel very confident then this might be a good option. But there’s an old saying among gamblers – never risk more than you can afford to lose, and that applies in this case, too.
