As a part of a conditional fee agreement, you and your solicitor will agree upon a success fee that is taken from your final settlement figure. By law, success fees are capped at 25%.

When avoidable incidents occur on holiday, the experience can be heightened due to the unfamiliar surroundings. In some cases where accidents on holiday occur, the negligent actions of another, such as a travel operator could be at fault.
If you have experienced negligence during a specific component of your packaged holiday, such as the hotel, flight, or excursion, you could make a claim against the tour operator back in the UK. Although an awarded settlement cannot erase the damages and trauma you have suffered, our panel of solicitors could handle a claim for an injury on holiday. They are well versed in the UK and international law and could present a claim against the negligent party. The claims our panel could handle may include;
- Airline Negligence
- Airport Accidents
- Hotel Negligence
- Train-Related Accidents (including international systems such as the Eurostar).
Proving who was liable for the injuries that you sustained on holiday could be difficult. For example, if you were on a package holiday, but you suffered negligence while on a privately booked day trip, your claim will be against the private organisation rather then your UK based tour operator. Therefore, we suggest that you call us using the details contained in this guide, we will be able to provide you with free legal advice.

Incidents of this nature could happen in a variety of places, from supermarkets, shopping centres, restaurants, public parks, and countless other locations.

If you sought the advice of a financial adviser that resulted in a financial loss, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
When making a financial decision, whether it’s in regards to a loan, mortgage, or a pension, a financial adviser is required by law to provide the customer with all the relevant factors ahead of time.

When a tenancy agreement comes to an end, the tenant should receive their deposit within the legal time frame of 10 working days from when it was agreed between both. This is on the basis that the tenant has contractually met all of their obligations upon leaving the property and has been approved by the landlord. However, if a landlord fails to return a deposit and supply a justified reason, the tenant could pursue and claim the deposit back from them. Upon making a claim, solicitors from our panel could obtain a settlement that is between one and three times the deposits original figure.
Solicitors from our panel could present a claim if a landlord has failed to;
- Protect The Deposit Throughout The Tenancy’s Duration
- Provide The Tenant With information Regarding The Deposit’s Location/Protection
- Submit The Deposit Into A Government Backed Scheme Within 30 Days/ 1 Month
So if you believe that your landlord has neglected their duty of care, you could have grounds to make a no win no fee claim for compensation. If so, a solicitor from our panel could handle your claim and provide you with legal guidance throughout the claims process.
If a tenant rents a property that has fallen into disrepair, there are certain circumstances where it could cause an injury, illness, or impact the tenant’s domestic bills. In events such as this, the owner of the property should fix the matter before issues of this nature can arise. In most cases, a rented property is owned by one of three individuals, such as a landlord, the city council, or a housing association, and it is within their legal duty to fix disrepair related issues. However, if the owner has been officially notified of the disrepair and has failed to act accordingly, the tenant could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation.
Common examples of housing disrepair could include;
- Structural Damages/Deflects
- Broken Heating System
- Lack Of Water
In the event of housing disrepair that a landlord has failed to acknowledge, there is a pre-action protocol that has been outlined by Justice.gov that the tenant could consider. The protocol strictly applies to residents situated in England and Wales who live in properties that are rented.
Therefore, if your landlord has neglected their duty of care, causing an injury, illness, or a financial loss that could’ve been averted, then the affected individual could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation for a home in disrepair.
