No Win No Fee - No Catch

These days it has become quite acceptable to claim compensation for an injury that was not your fault. There are many companies now offering legal services on a "No Win No Fee" basis to help you claim what you rightfully deserve. But is it too good to be true?

Since 2007 any company advertising compensation services needs to be registered with the Ministry Of Justice. This should give the consumer peace of mind that the company they are dealing with is being properly regulated and that they are abiding by the rules and regulations set out.

Suffering an injury can not only be physically and mentally painful to the victim but can also become a financial strain on their life and their family. This can lead to increased stress and tension and cause breakdown in relationships. It can be a tough time for all.

Not only could you lose money from not being able to work but you may need to have expensive medical attention. Your loved ones may have to sacrifice their earning ability to ensure that you are cared for properly during your recovery period. Unfortunately, during this period this bills keep coming in and without financial help it could become a real burden.

It is therefore right that you should be entitled to claim compensation for the situation you find yourself in which after all was not your fault. You need to stand up for your rights and seek the financial settlement that you need in order to avoid further hardship.

Accident compensation companies have made the process of claiming for your injury so much easier. You can simply complete an online website form or make a phone call to get your claim started. There is usually no need to ever visit a solicitor’s office and all communication is done either by email, phone or regular post. It’s that easy.

The amount of compensation and the length of time it takes to get a financial settlement will obviously vary depending on the accident circumstances and the extent of the injuries involved. The solicitor handling your case should be able to give you a much better idea once your claim is underway.

Choosing the right company to take on your claim can seem a little daunting given that there are so many advertising. You should look to companies who will give you back 100% of the compensation settlement and who sympathise and genuinely understand with what you are going through. The law firm should always keep you up to date with the progress of you claim so you know exactly where you are.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions no matter how silly you think they may be. The best companies will appreciate that you may be unfamiliar with the process and have worries about claiming. They should make you feel comfortable and speak to you in a friendly manor and in easy to understand language. No legal speak!

At the end of the day, your injuries may get better but the financial fallout from such an unfortunate event could be long lasting. The bottom line is that it is your right to claim and you shouldn't be afraid to do so.
