The first thing to be aware of is that this is not some special deal in injury cases. The large majority of lawyers will work on this arrangement if it is an appropriate case. We do it because we believe we should only be paid if you receive a benefit.
There are some situations where the arrangement may not apply. The reason for this is because it may be difficult to recover compensation. The most common situation is when there is no insurance.
Some cases are guaranteed to result in compensation. You do not need the arrangement if you are seriously injured and not at fault. This is common in TAC cases.
Some Lawyers use the arrangement to charge higher fees. You should carefully consider such arrangements. It is not justified if you have a clear right to Common Law Compensation
