August 2, 2012 by  Filed under News


It is an intimidating idea for an accident victim to spend a lot of money just to hire a solicitor who will represent him in the court for claiming compensation from the wrongdoers. They want to keep away from any upfront cost. No win no fee solicitors emerged in the UK legal scenario just to meet the demand of these financially, mentally and physically devastated accident victims only. On the other hand, the claims management companies came on the scene for better managing these claims and for functioning as an intermediary between the no win no fee lawyers and the victims of negligence who are willing to file compensation claims against the wrongdoers. However, as with every industry no win no fee solicitorshappens, a lot of counterfeit agencies also sprung up to reap mere financial benefits capitalizing on the widespread repute of the no win no fee legal practitioners. These so-called ‘claims management companies’, in due course, made the situation a fine kettle of fish.

What happens to a layperson when he desperately searches the web for finding a claims management company or a no win no fee attorney? He comes across a lot of exaggerative advertisements of many solicitor firms (not all of those are fake, but he falls in a dilemma). He signs a Conditional Fee Agreement with a solicitor firm not knowing exactly what he has to pay provided he wins the claim, or does not know even whether the solicitor firm is regulated or not. Chances are there that you have also entered the world of internet to find a legitimate road traffic accident solicitor who works on a no win no fee basis but cannot decide whether the last webpage you opened is owned by a legitimate claims management agency or solicitor firm. Here below are tips for your ready reference.

Is the claims management company overtly promotional?

Is the company proclaiming a 100% success record? Is the claims management company assuring you a success not even going through the available documents and evidences? Is the company indirectly pressurizing you to take their services? If that is the case, you have a good number of reasons to be skeptical. Beware of these frauds who advertise themselves as no win no fee solicitors.

Have you found the company through a promotional mail or fax?

Please note that the Ministry of Justice has prohibited the claims management companies to send promotional mails or any other form of adverts to the accident victims. So the only way to find them is to search on the web or get their physical address and step into their office within regular business hours. You can receive emails in case you subscribe to the newsletter service of a solicitor agency, otherwise not.

Is the company regulated by the Ministry of Justice?

If you have found a claims management company website on the web, check to see whether the company is regulated by the Ministry of Justice. Also check whether the no win no fee solicitors that they appoint are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). Both these regulatory bodies have zero tolerance policies when it comes to sanctifying the UK legal society.

Keep in mind the above-mentioned tips and you will be able to get in touch with the best claims management companies for sure.
