No Win - No Fee in the spotlight

I have blogged previously about how the RAC Motor Legal Protection policy they were giving away to their members had a sting in the tail, namely if the member made a personal injury claim using the appointed solicitors of RAC, they stood to lose 25% of their compensation.  http://blog.freemotorlegal.co.uk/2013/10/is-there-thing-as-free-lunch-i-was.html

This seems to be coming more common and other providers of legal expense insurance, where the customer has actually paid for legal cover, are finding novel ways of taking a share of any injury compensation by applying an "excess" to the policy or the deduction of a "success fee" by the lawyer.

This in my view pretty much defeats the point of paying for legal expenses insurance/ motor legal protection cover if you are going to lose some of your compensation to the solicitor they appoint to act for you. You would be just as well using your local High St solicitor under a no win-no fee arrangement, although he too would want to take a slice of your winnings as a "success fee".

Recently the legal ombudsman has released a report following a surge of complaints about solicitors deducting success fees following settlement of a claim, or pursuing their client for £1000's when the case turns sour. Often the circumstances can be unique to the case, but there appears to be a rising tide of these type of complaints.

  3. I did avail myself insurance money and I could not imagine that I will end up in an accident that will cost me many monetary and financial problems. I had to take master thesis help for my thesis from some professional with that money but it wasn’t possible. Maybe God planned something else for me and I don’t know what to do now because everything is gone and cannot be availed again.

  5. This policy of not deducting any amount on personal injury is so good. I read about it while providing commercial law assignment help to a client and I found that few companies deduct an amount in personal injury and I found that to be so unfair. Salute to you for taking a stand against that policy.
