Here is the three step process that will help you cut the length of your road to recovery in half.
1. The Injury
The first step in the no win no fee process is to simply have a personal injury. A personal injury victim is someone who has incurred and injury and suffering as the result of someone's negligence or intentional harm. Does that sound like you?
If so, it is important that you have solid evidence. No win no fee solicitors minimize the risk of wasting their time by only accepting cases they believe they can win. Without proof that your pain and suffering is the result of someone else's actions, the no win no fee process will be a difficult one.
2. The Solicitor
Now that you have evidence of negligence or intentional harm, you can start looking for a solicitor. That is, a legal professional who specializes in no win no fee claims.
What's great about no win no fee solicitors is that you know they are on your side and truly interested in the success of your case. The nature of no win no fee claims is that the solicitor does not get paid unless your case is won. You can rest easy knowing that your claim and your wellbeing are genuinely important to your solicitor.
3. The Claim
Your new solicitor will help you to craft a contract and bring your claim to court. It is important that you pay close attention to your contract. One term you want to look out for is "100% compensation". This means, as you may have guessed, that you will receive 100% of the compensation. If you do not see this term, ask your solicitor what percent of the claim he or she is able to take if the case is won.
If you win your case, you will receive compensation and the offending party will pay your solicitor fees. If you lose your case, you will not be responsible for your solicitor fees. Sounds simple, right?
