What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors Covering Southport?
A no win no fee solicitor can be used for many types of compensation claims. They don’t just cover personal injury claims, they can manage claims for criminal injuries, financial losses and disputes between tenants and landlords too.
When using a no win no fee service, you could benefit because:
- You only pay you solicitor’s fees if the case is won and you receive compensation.
- There are no upfront fees required for the case to begin.
When your solicitor is successful, their personal legal fees are covered by a ‘success fee’. This is a percentage taken from your compensation. It is agreed when you sign the agreement and is limited to 25%. As the fee is deducted from the compensation, you don’t need to have find the money to pay it from your own bank account.
A solicitor will assess your claim and decide whether they’ll take on your case based on what happened, who was to blame and what evidence you have to support the claim. Also, you need to be within the relevant time limits. The personal injury claims time limit is generally 3-years. Other claims (financial claims, criminal claims, some holiday claims) have different time limits so please call to check if you’re able to begin.
