How can I fund a personal injury claim?
A Conditional Fee Agreement (“No win no fee”) was introduced to the UK in 1995 to help people get a fair hearing and access to justice, even if they couldn't afford to pay for legal representation themselves.
The Government introduced changes to the way the system worked in England and Wales in April 2013. Before April 2013 the losing side usually paid all of the legal costs associated with the claim, meaning the injured person would keep all of the compensation awarded.
Now, solicitors can still offer a no win no fee service, but the injured person may be expected to contribute to their legal costs from any compensation they receive.
How much compensation will I get?
It’s a common misconception that an injury is worth one specific amount. The amount of the claim will depend on how the injury has affected you and how long it takes you to recover. You are entitled to compensation for the injury itself and to be put back in the financial position you were in before the accident.
How long will the claim take?
Every case is different and straightforward and simple claims can often be settled in a short space of time. However if you’ve suffered a serious and catastrophic injury the claim will need a more in-depth investigation and will take longer, especially if you are still suffering from the effects of the injury you had as a result of the accident.
