Funding Accident Claims
No Win No Fee.
Before 1998 Legal Aid was available to take proceedings for all personal injury claims however upon the introduction of no win no fee, technically known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), Legal Aid was withdrawn for most personal injury claims. Legal aid is still available for compensation claims for personal injury caused by medical negligence. If the case is lost then the solicitor will be unable to claim his fees from either the third party or his client and must effectively write them off.
We operate the no win no fee scheme otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won and the client obtains an award of compensation. In the event that the legal claim is lost there is no charge made to the client.
Personal injury claims are rarely paid for privately as most people use a CFA which removes any financial risk. If a claim is funded privately and is won by the claimant then the other side must pay compensation and legal costs, conversely if the claim is lost then the claimant must pay the other side's legal costs. Insurance to cover the risk of losing the claim and being ordered to pay the other sides costs is advisable however in a privately funded case that insurance will usually only cover the other sides costs leaving the claimant to pay his own solicitors costs.
Legal Expenses Insurance
Some household insurance policies and motor insurance policies have legal expenses cover to pay for a solicitor to take legal action and this cover often extends to personal injury compensation claims.
Unions and Professional Associations
Members often have the benefit of free legal help to take or defend actions. Claimants in Birmingham should check with their union representative to see if funding is available for free referral to a solicitor.
