Car accidents are one of the most harmful things that happen every day in society. Ask anyone and chances are they know someone that has been in one. Many of them were lucky to come out with only a minor surprise, while others end up weeks in the hospital and others dead.
Here are a few reasons that explain why car accidents happen: distracted drivers, drunk driving and without alertness, doing things while driving, driver fatigue, aggressive driving and speeding, not enough experience, things on the road.
An accident can happen to anyone. If you have been involved in an accident and have suffered a personal injury, either physically or psychologically, you may have the legal right to obtain compensation for your injuries, loss of wages and other financial loses. Accidents involving cars or vehicles of any kind whether you think you are at fault or not should be discussed with a solicitor to get a true picture of possible compensation.
When you make a compensation claim, there’s no need to spend lots of cash on solicitors’ fees. By using No Win No Fee solicitors you won’t have to pay your solicitor’s fees until you get your compensation payout, and even then the other side has to pay it, meaning you get 100% of your compensation.
No Win No Fee means that whether you win or lose your case you should not have to pay any legal fees. This is because, in no win no fee claims, the solicitors will recover their legal fees from the person responsible for your injuries.
No win no fee claims agreement was first introduced to the UK in 1995 under solicitors Conditional Fee Agreements’ (CFAs) to help people make accident claims that did not qualify for legal aid. In 2000, legal aid was abolished for personal injury and now most personal injury claims work in this way.
Under this policy, if you do not win your case, you do not pay your No Win No Fee solicitor a fee. Insurance will cover the costs and expenses of the other party, and the fees and expenses of your solicitors too. Therefore, if you win your case you will receive 100% of your compensation. Only in exceptional circumstances or medical negligence cases will there be costs applicable.
