Ban no win no fee legal services

Comment 18th July 2010

The growith of No win no fee legal services has had a very bad effect in UK. Lots of silly actions push insurance costs  higher, make local authoritiesand, hospitals and business run for cover and is bad for justice. Why becasue the real hard cases will not be taken up and it is a charter for whinging gits.

There was a time not so long ago when I believe no win no fee was not allowed. It is simple to kill off. Any agreement to no fee whether you win or losse is irrecoverable from the other party.This would allow genuine legal types to work on public interest cases for nowt but stop the ambulance chasers in their tracks.

Why does this matter?

The idea of something for nothing encourages claims when claims  might never happen and a simple sorry would have done. There is no evidence the scheme has benifitted the wider punblic good, just lined a few legal firms pockets at everybody elses expence in terms of inurance and council tax costs and the negaitive effect on the way many bodies deal with mostly minor issues.

If the idea was justice for all then what you need is free courts and no lawyers.
