What is a No Win No Fee claim and how does it work?
Our back injury lawyers use Conditional Fee Agreements to fund all back injury claims. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all of the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
Our other fees are paid by the insurers of the negligent party, so the insurance provider of your employers business insurance and not your employer personally.
If you are worried about claiming against your employer or would like to start your No Win No Fee claim, call Nigel Askew Solicitors today on 01507 609027 to get your back injury claim started.
How much compensation can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you may expect to receive for your back injury depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work and if you require any long term care.
All successful back injury claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- Compensation for any adaptations that may be required to your home
- The cost associated with healthcare and rehabilitation as a result of your injuries
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, serious back injury claims can be valued at several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.
