What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors?
No win no fee solicitors are solicitors who do not charge their clients in the event that their claims for accident compensation do not succeed. No win no fee solicitors also do not require their clients to pay for their services upfront and will deduct their success fee from the compensation at the end of the claims process. They will negotiate with their client before beginning the claim what amount of compensation they will receive as their payment. This amount will not exceed a maximum of 25%.

Every year thousands of people are injured in road traffic accidents. Arguably the leading cause of these types of accidents is human error. If such an error was not on your part but on the part of another road user whose negligence caused an accident then you could be entitled to compensation. Examples of errors or negligence that could cause you to have a crash could be pedestrians walking into your path without looking, other drivers breaking the speed limit, other drivers turning without indicating, using their phones while driving or driving the wrong way down a one-way street. For more detailed information about road traffic accident injuries or whiplash injuries you can see other pages on our website.
If you have recently been treated by the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust and your health has worsened as a result of substandard medical care then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Medical negligence is a very serious matter. The term refers to any instance in which medical practitioners have not followed their duty of care, not followed correct procedure or have made mistakes that health professionals are expected not to make. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors can cover medical negligence no win no fee claims in Bath as although they are not based in Bath, they can cover the area with ease.
Suffering an injury during surgery or an injury to teeth and gums during dental procedures, suffering from neglect in a nursing home and being misdiagnosed or given an incorrect prescription by a doctor are all possible grounds for medical negligence compensation claims. Some complications and side effects of certain treatments and surgeries are to be expected depending on the circumstances. However, you must be able to give your informed consent before undergoing surgery or other forms of treatment. It could be grounds for a medical negligence claim if you have not been fully informed of any potential side effects or complications prior to being asked for your consent to undergo surgery.
Negligent hospital care is a form of medical negligence as well. Hospital negligence could take the form of staff failing to uphold hygiene standards, creating the risk of infection outbreaks, including the potentially deadly MRSA. Staff might also neglect to properly note and monitor patient’s vital signs, i.e. their blood pressure, their temperature and so on, or fail to properly monitor their intake of food and water and their medications.
You have a legal right to have a workplace that is kept safe for you and your colleagues by health and safety measures. You could be entitled to compensation if you have suffered from an injury at work, from long term health problems related to your work, from work-related stress or from a physical assault at work that was caused by the negligence of your employer. Negligence by an employer could include failing to provide safety training, safety equipment such as eye protection and masks, risk assessments and security features. They may also fail to provide features that ensure the general health and safety of the workplace such as proper lighting and ventilation.

Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Bath could handle an accident you have suffered abroad while on holiday, in the same way, they would handle any other compensation claim, at least in certain circumstances. If your holiday was booked through a package deal, i.e. your flight, your accommodation, and excursions were arranged by your travel company and your accident took place in or during these parts of your holiday then your travel company could be liable for compensation that may need to be paid. If your accident took place during a part of your trip that you organised yourself, or if your holiday was not package booked, then liability will lie with the business responsible for the premises where your accident happened. If that business is in another country abroad then the claim against them would have to go through that country’s legal system. Depending on the country where the accident took place then our panel of solicitors may be able to provide you with a solicitor qualified in that country’s legal process. If you wish to make a claim for an accident abroad then call us for accident abroad claims advice.
Being the victim of a violent crime will in most cases entitle you to criminal injury compensation. This compensation is intended to be awarded to cover the impact of both physical injury and lasting psychological harm caused by being the victim of, or a witness to, a violent crime. Victim of violent crime compensation is not handled by criminal courts so it is not necessarily tied to the outcome of a criminal trial (or lack thereof). Criminal injury compensation is handled and awarded by CICA, the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, and provided there is proof that you were the victim of a violent crime you can be awarded compensation even if the person responsible has not yet been found guilty.
Rape and sexual abuse also fall under criminal injury compensation claims. Many people who have suffered rape and sexual abuse are hesitant to come forward and many only come forward after years have passed since the crimes took place. The law allows for criminal injury compensation to be awarded for historical cases of rape and sexual abuse. Most criminal injury claims have a time limit of two years, after which claims cannot be made, but in cases of sexual abuse or rape this time limit can be lifted. You can work through our panel of no win no fee solicitors in order to make a compensation claim for being the victim of a violent crime in Bath.
Many different kinds of accidents could be grounds for a personal injury claim; even ones which you may think at first were simply caused by bad luck or your own clumsiness. For example, if you trip while walking on the pavement, then you could have grounds to make a claim against your local council. Local councils have the responsibility to keep pavements maintained and repaired (pavements on private property are the responsibility of the property’s owner). If the local council has allowed the pavement or the road to fall into a state of disrepair that poses a tripping hazard then they could be liable for compensation.
Tripping while on private or publicly operated premises could also be grounds for a personal injury claim if that business has not properly ensured that its premises are free from tripping hazards. An example of this could be if a floor has recently been mopped and is still wet but has not been marked out with a “wet floor” sign, or if objects have been left lying around where customers might trip on them. You can find more information about slip, trip and fall accident claims on our website here.
Other forms of accidents that might be grounds for a public place accident could be if you or your child has been injured in a playground by faulty or broken playing equipment. Or if you have been hurt while out shopping by stock falling off of shelves due to being stacked improperly or due to faulty shelves. You could also make a claim if you have been burned by hot food or drink served at too high a temperature in a restaurant.
If you are interested in claiming for a mis sold financial product and are looking for a financial solicitor then you can do so through our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Bath. A mis-sold financial product is one where you were pressured into buying, misled into buying or were not able to make an informed decision about before purchasing, which has subsequently caused you to suffer a financial loss. A good example would be a hypothetical mis sold pension. If you were offered a pension scheme, but you were not provided with all alternative options, or you were not informed of some of the potential financial risks and you subsequently lost money, or received less money from your pension than what you would have done otherwise, then you could have grounds for a compensation claim. PPI and stock investments would also be good examples of financial products that could be mis-sold.
Our panel of solicitors who are not based in Bath but can cover the area can assist clients going through rent deposit disputes with their landlords. Tenants sometimes find that their landlords attempt to withhold their tenancy deposit or are unable to return it because it has been lost. In instances such as these the tenant can seek compensation for their lost deposit as it is unlawful for a landlord to either deliberately withhold or lose a tenants deposit. In order to prevent this, the law requires landlords to have the deposit protected by a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) within thirty days of receiving it and to give you confirmation in writing that they have done so, with the details of the TDS in question included. You could make a no win no fee claim for rent deposit with our panel of solicitors covering Bath. You can find more details about your rights as a tenant when your landlord is withholding your deposit from the housing charity Shelter.
A landlord, or any other party renting a residential property, is obligated by the law to ensure that it is maintained to a habitable standard. Living in a property that is not well maintained poses both the threat of injury and the threat of long term health problems. Living in a property with severe mould or damp can lead to skin irritation such as eczema and lung health issues like asthma. Inadequate flooring can lead to the threat of falling injuries or injuries from splinters if, for example, the flooring is made of badly fitted, rotten, broken or unstable floorboards. Exposed or poorly installed electrical wires pose the threat of electrocution and fires. You can read through the legislation on the justice.gov website for housing disrepair claims guidance.
