By hitting a “soft” patch with the US economy, the US Federal Reserve showed itself to be in no rush to increase its interest rates, much to the relief of investors.

The US Central Bank’s rate-setting committee said a better labour market offset economic growth.

Meanwhile, the Central Bank committee said inflation still dominated most of the US’ economic growth. It also had concerns with the country’s slowed economic growth and the gloomy global economic forecast as well.

After the announcement, the dollar remained unchanged. However, investors are confident that there’s a 23 per cent probability that the Federal Reserve’s lending rate can rise in two months to June up from 21 per cent.

Investors expected an interest rate rise due to global concerns regarding the huge global equities sell-off due to the dropping stocks in China.

The Federal Reserve’s changed policy along with China’s slight recovery had helped ease investors’ concerns.

Meanwhile, US interest rates are very close to zero. Should the US economy become further undesirable, it may use “unconvential policy tools”.

Generally, analysts accept that the Federal Reserve is refraining from issuing forward guidance and is trying to ‘wait-and-see’ through the entire situation.

As a proprietor, it is wise to know that not all losses come from business. Sometimes, it could be because oil for delivery trucks and other industrial machinery had become expensive. Sometimes, I feel that the ingredients for my products have inflated in value, which makes it difficult to make a profit. But sometime, the losses come in the form of legal troubles.

I’ve been doing my business in the trade for more than three decades and I’ve seen the ups and downs of markets. I’ve signed my company employees to insurance that guarantees medical bills, loss of income and specific impairment cases because we can afford it. But I’m hoping to look for an insurance company that can provide insurance for possible external accidents. External, meaning my employees aren’t the victims.

While most UK insurance provides victim damages for possible accidents, I’m actually trying to save time from encountering a victim’s no win no fee solicitor. This particular insurance policy should be variable and flexible to the nature of the situation. My company has 16 delivery trucks and I don’t mind paying enough for such insurance if needed.

If you do find this kind or other kinds of insurance close to the nature of my description, be sure to hit me up and I’ll give you the best thanks I can.

If you chose a compensation claims expert simply because you knew he or she could get you comprehensive compensation, then you are certainly making the right move. However, you must keep your expectations in check even if you have the best compensation claims expert in the area. You’ll also need to work with them effectively to ensure your claim’s success. Here are a few things to remember.

1. Distance
If your claims expert comes from another city, expect them to find trouble getting to personal meetings to discuss your compensation claim’s details. It is important that you work with a claims expert residing in your area or city rather than a claims expert who offered you a lower service pride but is an hour’s ride away from your place. Regular updates between your and your claims expert make for good compensation claims.

2. Information
Your claims expert is not a mind-reader; they can rationally incline your claim and the evidences you have but they cannot know the other details if you do not tell them. If you fear for your confidentiality, ensure that you are working with a Ministry of Justice-regulated claims company. You could know their regulation if you ask for their Claims Regulation Number.

3. Have Patience
Even if the claim expert’s company advertised that they do 100% of the work and they can provide you your compensation within a month, manage your expectations. A compensation claim’s processing length depends on the nature of the compensation claim, the injuries you sustained and the receipt of the medical report and other evidences.

The Ministry of Justice first presented the no win no fee claims system in the country during the 90s to allow citizens equal access to the justice system. This arrangement meant that the client is to only to pay their legal representatives upon winning a claim successfully. The usual legal fee covered by a successful claimant is 25% of their compensation amounts. However, because severe cases had left many victims undercompensated, the MOJ gave severe injury claims a win/lose no fee advantage.


The win/lose no fee agreement became applicable to all injury claims. The legal representatives will now take their legal fees and other expense fees against the defendant. However, because many fraudulent and exaggerated claims came about in the following years, the MOJ has decided to abolish the win/lose no fee claims system in 2014.

Should the United Kingdom go back to the no win no fee claims system? Authorities think so; the expenses dealt by fraud whiplash claims cost £2 billion compensating for incontestable claims. The Ministry also plans to increase the Small Claims Court payouts to £5000 to reduce the stress from insurance companies. The health boards will give consideration for severe and unlikely-fraud claims, such as medical negligence and extreme cases, for win/lose no fee agreements.
