Under what circumstances am I entitled to claim for ankle sprain injury compensation, and could I use a “no win, no fee” agreement to do so?

Question:

Under what circumstances am I entitled to claim for ankle sprain injury compensation, and could I use a “no win, no fee” agreement to do so?

Answer:

Your claim for ankle sprain injury compensation may be made with a “conditional fee“ agreement (also known as “no win, no fee”) provided you have a strong and valid injury claim. A valid injury claim is one in which you were injured as a result of someone’s negligence.

Negligence can manifest in various forms in a claim for ankle sprain injury compensation – from an employer not warning of risks associated with performing certain tasks to a council’s failure to repair a pothole in the road and a school not providing enough supervision for your child in a playground. As long as you, or somebody close to you, have been injured as a result of negligence by a party who owed you a duty of care, you may claim for ankle sprain injury compensation against them.

When you pursue ankle sprain injury compensation by contracting a conditional fee agreement, you will not owe legal fees to your solicitor (with the exception of minor “disbursement fees”) unless you win your claim for ankle sprain injury compensation. In most cases, should you win your ankle sprain injury compensation claim, you legal fees will be paid by the defendant on top of your compensation settlement.

However, not winning your ankle sprain injury compensation claim means that you will be liable for the defendant´s legal fees. To protect you from this financial exposure, your solicitor will ask to examine any car or household insurance policies you hold to establish whether legal fee insurance is included and, if necessary, suggest that you take out “after the event” insurance – the cost of which may also be recovered from the defendant should you win your claim for sprained ankle injury compensation.

To see if you have an ankle sprain injury compensation claim worth pursuing and which is sufficiently strong to qualify for “no win, no fee” legal representation, you should be sure to speak with a personal injury solicitor at your earliest convenience.
