Accident at work compensation solicitors, 1st Injury Claims are encouraging would-be compensation claimants to seek professional advice ahead of changes to Part 2 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012,
Online PR News – 29-January-2013 – London – United Kingdom: 29th January 2013 -Accident at work compensation solicitors, 1st Injury Claims are encouraging would-be compensation claimants to seek professional advice ahead of changes to Part 2 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, which will come into effect this April. The reforms will include a 25% cap on success fees skimmed from compensation awarded in personal injury cases by claims companies and lawyers, excluding damages for future care and loss.
This new approach to success fees will supersede the current practice of the victorious personal injury lawyer or solicitor recovering all their costs from the losing side. Injury claims companies who seek to secure a much larger share of their clients’ compensation will see their expenses allocation curbed and the lion’s share of the personal injury compensation claim money safeguarded for the injured party.
Most claimants have the remaining few weeks until April to set new claims in motion before the changes come into being if they want to get in before the new reforms.
1st Injury Claims advises that anyone who is considering launching a personal accident or injury compensation claim seek advice from accident at work compensation solicitors soon to decide on the best course of action for them.
1st Injury Claims was established in 2002 as a personal accident and injury claims company.
