So much of what you read about on the internet seems too good to be true. So when you come across references to a free accident claim lawyer, surely there must be a catch? The answer is: not necessarily. Due to an innovative no win no fee system; it is possible to make an accident compensation claim without having to pay a penny to a lawyer.

How do no win no fee claims work?

English legal cases are heard on the basis of the ‘loser pays' system, so if you lose your case, you are theoretically obliged to pay the other party's legal costs. Some lawyers insist that their clients take out an insurance policy to cover this risk, but at 100% Compensation we insure this possibility ourselves. That way you can rest assured that we do not take on any cases that we do not believe would succeed.

Accordingly, not only can you take comfort in the fact that your accident claim lawyers are serious about your case, but you know that we are putting our money where our mouth is.

The process starts with a free assessment of your claim. Within 24 hours of your initial contact with us, a friendly adviser will be in touch to let you know whether your claim stands much chance of success.

How do our accident claim lawyers get paid?

Our lawyers only get paid for your case if they win it. When the compensation is awarded, the person who was responsible for your accident is typically ordered to pay the other party's legal costs in addition to your damages. So our panel of claims lawyers submit their bill to them (or in most cases, their insurance company).

Keeping your compensation

You would assume that, as you were the person who was injured in the accident that you would be the person who would keep the compensation. Unfortunately, some firms do not agree with this assumption and take the liberty of giving themselves a bonus if they win your case - out of your compensation. At 100% Compensation we never do this. Instead, you will receive all of the damages that are appropriate for your condition.

How should you choose a lawyer?

If something is free then it can't be any good, right? In our case, we beg to differ. The accident claim lawyers on our panel are all specialists in the personal injury field. With decades of experience in fighting for justice for people who have been injured at work, on the road, in a public place or by someone in the medical profession, we are well versed in court procedures and legal skills.

But despite our expertise we will neither blind you with legal jargon, nor will we talk down to you. The accident claim lawyers at 100% Compensation explain every step of the process in plain and simple language, ensuring that you are up to speed with what is happening.
