What Is A No Win No Fee Solicitor Covering Southend?
Whether you’ve been injured at work, or in a road accident, suffered medical negligence or have cause to launch a tenancy deposit claim, having appropriate legal representation on your side could make all the difference to your claim. However, you might not wish to pay a lawyer before your claim pays out. With no win no fee claims, this is exactly what you would avoid.
Whether you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor or one that works on a tenancy deposit claim, finding a no win no fee solicitor allows you to begin legal action right away, rather than waiting until you have funds to retain a solicitor’s services. This could be invaluable, especially with personal injury claims, where there is usually a personal injury claims time limit on taking action.
If you’re wondering how this all works, the process of working with our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Southend-on-Sea is relatively simple. You would, along with your solicitor – sign an agreement which promises your lawyer a percentage paid out of your settlement. This could be anything up to 25 per cent of your payout – not more, as the government has instructed that there is a cap on the percentage that could be taken. You might be asked by your solicitor to take out some form of insurance to cover the unlikely issue that your claim would not result in a settlement, but this is something that could vary from solicitor to solicitor. Once your payout has come through, the lawyer’s fees would be deducted, and the rest would be for you to benefit from.
As well as not having to pay upfront for your legal representation, there are other benefits to working in this manner. These could include:
- Reduced financial risk to you.
- Your lawyer would have no reason to take your claim if they didn’t think it would result in compensation.
