Camden | Personal Injury Solicitors | No Win No Fee
If you have had an accident in Camden and you need a personal injury solicitors to help you make a compensation claim please read our full guide. The law currently supports a personal injury case that is presented within 3 years of having the accident or diagnosis of certain illnesses (which is not necessarily when the incident actually happened) so this means that you may still be eligible to make a personal injury claim that is the result of something that happened many years ago.
Legislation exists for people like you – people who have suffered and whose lives have been changed because of some type of accident or after developing an occupation-related disease that was not their fault. However many people can still be reluctant to make a claim. This could be because even though no win no fee has been heavily publicised; clients can still find it difficult to believe that a personal injury solicitor will represent them for free and they may also be nervous about standing up to a business or corporation and presume they have little chance of success but this is where our firm – Legal Expert can help you to put these worries to rest.
Many people will then be wondering how does no win no fee work if Legal Expert’s provided solicitors will represent me for no costs upfront? Yes – the legal representation is free to start and you and your solicitor will only receive payment in the event of your claim being successful and that this will be taken as a percentage of the money that is awarded to you. This means that they take the financial hit if your claim is not won and so they take all the risk!
Legal Expert’s provided solicitors are governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and we support fair and transparent legal charges for our clients. In the event of a successful claim therefore, you will already know upfront what percentage of your compensation award will be deducted for legal services which means no unpleasant surprises!
