Law firm offers "no win no fee guarantee" for hip replacement patients: What????

This is a real doozie.  Just think about this kookie offer:

" no win/no fee guarantee"

Now, this is just silly.  You should never be paying out of pocket for any litigation of this sort.  There are no lawyers who would ever charge a patient money for this type of litigation.  100% of them are paid only upon success.  If they win the case, they get paid and you get some of the money which generally ranges from 50% to70%  of the proceeds given to the patient.

This kind of advertising is just nonsense.  It makes a patient think that this law firm is offering something special that other firms can't or won't offer.  UNTRUE.  All firms offer similar arrangements.  There is some ability to  negotiate  the fees however but you aren't going to run into many differences between firms.

Cavaet emptor my fellow patients!

  1. Thanks for the post on law firms offers no win no fee guarantee. Most of the people who are suffering from personal injuries because of other carelessness, fails to claim for compensation. For such people UK solicitors expert in no win no fee claim are there to help the.
