There used to be some controversy around ‘No Win No Fee’ claims and whether they were really beneficial for people wanting to pursue an accident claim. A lot of people held the view that even if you felt you had a legitimate accident claim there was no reason to go down the ‘No Win No Fee’ route as they’d lose out on a significant amount of compensation. People felt it was better to pay the fees of a regular lawyer as, if the claim was successful, they’d end up having less than the lost compensation. The ‘No Fee’ part also didn’t persuade people as they were aware that the solicitors wouldn’t take on the case unless they felt it was a guaranteed win.
This has all changed, however, when ‘Win No Fee’ options became available. ‘Win No Fee’ means that even when your claim is successful, you won’t be the one paying the accident solicitors. The way this works is that if you win your claim then the party responsible for the accident in the first place must also pay your legal fees. This means that you get to keep every penny of your compensation; none of it goes towards paying your lawyers.
When you combine ‘No Win No Fee’ and ‘Win No Fee’ options you end up with a system which means anybody can begin an accident claim, if there is enough evidence for them to do so, and not have to worry about paying their lawyers at the end of it.
If you’ve been involved in an accident then you’ll already have had to deal with any pain or injuries that happened as a result of it. You may have even suffered long term damage that will continue to impede you for years. In cases like this, it’s obvious that some sort of compensation is necessary and most injury claims will take into account any pain suffered by the victim, especially ongoing pain.
There are other things associated with an accident that you may not have thought of though. Although you are entitled to claim for any physical suffering that was caused, you can also factor in the cost of any adjustments that will have to be made to your home or transport if you have suffered a debilitating injury such as paralyzation or severe brain damage. These adjustments to your home can quickly become expensive and it’s important they are factored into your claim.
Even if you haven’t suffered any lasting injuries, you can still claim for any wages lost during the time that you were injured, or any additional costs that were accrued through not being able to drive or travel.
