Worry about how much it might cost to pursue your claim is a major factor in any Personal Injury Claim. Many people walk away discouraged by the possible financial burden that might arise.
Everybody thinks they know how payment for a Personal Injury claim works. Some people think simply the no win no fee personal injury solicitor takes a risk on the outcome of the claim and only gets paid by you at the end of the claim. Well, it is not exactly like that!
In essence, there are many options in Ireland for an easy method of covering the costs involved in a personal injury claim. Talk to us and our referred solicitors will outline the many possibilities that are available to cover your fees in a Personal Injury claim.
How Can It work?
The key to making a successful claim for compensation comes from establishing two things with your no win no fee solicitor. Firstly, you have to have been the victim of an accident which was caused by the negligence of another. It does not matter if it’s another driver, a doctor, a supermarket which failed to warn about a wet floor or a council which ought to have fixed a dangerous paving stone, if somebody else was to blame for your suffering, then it is only just and fair that they be made to pay for your recovery.
Secondly, the choice of the right solicitors is so very important to your Personal Injury claim. The right solicitor will give you the peace of mind knowing that you are in good hands.
In the USA the term No Win No Fee is often referred to by the words Contingency Agreement. Please see the following link for supplementary on Contingency Fees or No Win No fee agreements; http://www.americanbar.org/groups/public_education/resources/law_issues_for_consumers/lawyerfees_contingent.html To see the use of no win no fee by solicitors and lawyers in various countries.
The major difference between Ireland and the USA is in the method of calculating the fees due to the lawyer or solicitor for a Personal Injury or Medical Negligence claim. In the USA they charge a percentage of the compensation won. In Ireland, solicitors are not allowed to charge a percentage and the fees are based on the work performed.

Our referred solicitors cannot take a percentage of your compensation and our referred solicitors will probably work on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that unless they win for you will not have to pay any fees or costs if they lose.
Even when enlisting the services of our panel of expert referred solicitors, the process of claiming personal injury compensation can be at very best a difficult and stressful experience. Whether you have been injured at work, in a road traffic incident or a slip or fall, you know that No Win No Fee makes sense.
No Win No fee is becoming more well known to the general public and it ensures that legal services are more available to potential clients, especially to those who are not so well off.
Of course No Win No Fee arrangements can be used in the other areas of the law. Although it is primarily used in Personal injury claims it is also found in other areas of litigation and especially in jurisdictions where solicitors/lawyers/attorneys are allowed a percentage of the compensation won. In Ireland, solicitors are not allowed to charge this way.
Finding out exactly how it works is important before you discuss with a solicitor so you can ask the right questions before proceeding.
After all, it allows legal redress to be put in the hands of everyone and although there are a few faults it is to be embraced as a positive area for most people.
