What Are No Win, No Fee Personal Injury Claims?
In the UK, individuals who suffer an injury or illness because of someone else’s negligence have the legal right to claim compensation for the pain and loss they have incurred as a result. Claiming compensation involves making a personal injury claim supported by strong evidence, which is progressed by following a specific legal process. This can seem daunting and costly, but with the guidance and assistance of experienced no win no fee personal injury solicitors, it is possible to hold those responsible for your injury to account.
Although every stage in making a personal injury claim incurs costs, this shouldn’t prevent you from seeking the financial justice you deserve. Our no win no fee solicitors** in Manchester are committed to helping their clients get the compensation they are entitled to.
This means they offer their services on a no win no fee basis, so that those who have the legal right to claim compensation for a personal injury can do so without the fear of having to pay all the costs of making a claim out of their own pocket.
How Much Does It Cost to Fund a Personal Injury Claim?
It’s impossible to predict exactly how much a personal injury claim costs to make. It has to be borne in mind that a compensation claim has many aspects to it. Our personal injury solicitors** in Manchester undertake a variety of tasks, carried out using their extensive experience and expertise, when helping their clients get the compensation they deserve, including:
- Investigating the circumstances surrounding the claim
- Contacting witnesses and experts
- Collecting and reviewing evidence such as medical reports
- Establishing the facts surrounding the accident and the injury
- Applying the facts to the law to establish the liability of the negligent party
- Assessing the maximum amount of compensation that can be claimed, by using official guidelines and previous compensation awards to approximate how much can be claimed for pain and suffering, as well as assessing other losses the claimant has incurred, such as loss of earnings or damage to their property
- Presenting all elements of the claim in strong, persuasive and legally accurate terms
- Expertly negotiating with the negligent party to reach a suitable settlement
- Professionally presenting the claim in court if the negligent party denies liability
All of these aspects involved in making a personal injury claim and more incur time and money. Fortunately, there are ways to make sure the costs involved don’t prevent someone from enforcing their right to compensation when they have suffered, through no fault of their own, because of another person’s negligence. This is where no win no fee comes in. It’s one of the most common ways that people cover the costs involved in claiming compensation for their injuries.
What is No Win No Fee?
No win no fee refers to a type of special agreement reached between a solicitor and their client about how the costs involved in making a claim will be covered. Specifically, it means that the client will not have to pay their solicitor’s costs if their claim is unsuccessful. This means that if a claim fails, the solicitor will not charge their client for their legal fees.
If a personal injury claim succeeds under a no win no fee agreement, in nearly all cases the losing party will pay most, if not all, of the legal fees. How any costs that aren’t covered by the losing party will be paid will have been agreed between the client and their solicitor prior to the claim being started.
Our no win no fee solicitors** in Manchester are dedicated to helping our clients keep as much of their compensation as possible. They will work closely with you to clearly present the funding options available and to reach a no win no fee agreement that gives you the peace of mind that your personal finances are not being put at risk.
No win no fee is subject to our panel’s Manchester personal injury solicitor agreeing to take on your case and appropriate insurance cover being in place. When a compensation claim is successful, there will be a Success Fee. Success Fees will not exceed 25% of recovered damages including VAT. This fee will be subject to your individual circumstances. There are a few rare exceptions, which the panel solicitor for Manchester can explain to you in more detail. If no damages are recovered, then no fee is payable by you. Your agreement will be direct with the panel solicitor in Manchester, who is a third party and not owned or employed by us. Early termination fees may apply if you decide not to proceed or fail to follow reasonable legal advice. Such fees would be based on an hourly fee rate as set by that panel solicitor. We may receive a payment from the Manchester personal injury solicitors to whom we pass details if your case is accepted.
