Have you recently experienced an injury that was caused by the negligent actions of another party? Are you searching for a solicitor who could handle your claim? This online guide shall outline the potential claims that our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Lowestoft could handle and how you can begin a claim.
It is worth highlighting that all potential claims for compensation may be affected by a personal injury claims time limit. It is therefore vital that a claim for compensation should commence within 3 years from the moment the negligent actions occurred. In certain circumstances, however, the 3-year time limit will come into action once the issue caused by negligence has been officially been diagnosed (such as PTSD). For more information regarding personal injury claims time limits, we would recommend that you speak with one of our advisors.
What Is A No Win No Fee Damages Claim?
If you have encountered an injury or psychological suffering that was inflicted by a negligent party, you might be searching for a solicitor to handle your claim. If that is the case, an expert from our panel could potentially offer claimants a no win no fee agreement when handling their claim.
In many cases, a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) arrangement may often be referred to as a no win no fee agreement. If a solicitor accepts your claim upon the grounds that it is valid and eligible, this could reduce the potential threat to your finances.

Although there are thousands of road traffic accidents that occur within the UK, an accident of this nature is still an unexpected and unpredictable experience. In many cases where a car crashes into another vehicle, whether this includes motorcyclists, cyclists, or even pedestrians, the crash could be a direct result of third party negligence. Common examples of road-related negligence may include:
- Distracted whilst driving
- Driving under the influence
- Improper lane changes
- Failing to follow the highway code
- Aggressive driving
When road traffic accidents occur, you could experience an array of injuries and /or suffering that range from minor to major as a result. In a majority of road accident cases, whiplash claims are some of the most common, which is apparent when looking at statistics provided by the Reported Roadside Casualties Report. Between the years of 2016/17, over 617,000 people made claims in connection to whiplash-related injuries. When accidents of this nature occur, you may require therapy or rehabilitation to adjust to life after a road traffic accident. If that is the case, an awarded settlement could provide the affected individual with financial reassurance throughout the recovery process and cover any surprise expenses they encounter.
So, if you have suffered an injury that was caused by a negligent road user, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. A legal advisor could assist the affected individual throughout the legal process and provide support where required.

Medical malpractice could happen if a medical professional deviates from reasonable standards of care, causing an injury or harm to the patient that could have been avoided. When visiting a medical practitioner, whether this is for a routine check-up, a surgery, or simply with regards to a concerning symptom, you expect a high quality of care when being treated. After-all, your health and well-being are extremely important and you expect it to be treated with the necessary duty of care.
However, there are moments where the procedures and measures that have been set in place could fail, resulting in life-altering implications or potential suffering that could have been prevented. When negligent actions of this nature occur, the affected individual could be left unable to earn a living wage, or in extreme cases, the affected individual could be left unable to look after themselves. If negligence of this nature happens, our panel of no win no fee solicitors could assist the affected individual when making a claim.

If an employer has failed to comply with the health & safety regulations that ensure a hazard-free environment, then the risk of a work-related injury could increase. According to statistics provided by the Health and Safety Executive, over 1.4 million people within the UK are currently battling illnesses related to their place of work.
To ensure the workplace safety has been achieved, there are several steps an employer could take. Common examples to consider may include risk assessments, routine inspections, and regular housekeeping. However, if an employer fails to uphold their duty of obligation and an accident occurs, you could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation for any suffering caused.
If you experience work-related injuries inflicted by neglect, Citizens Advice have outlined several steps that could be considered. These include:
- Take pictures.
- Take video footage
- Collect details of those who witnessed the accident.
- Report the incident to your place of work.
- Take notes about your accident as soon as possible (this can include drawings).
If you have been injured by the negligence of a third party, the experience can be incredibly stressful and traumatic. Nobody prepares for the aftermath of an accident, especially while abroad. The stress of being somewhere foreign and unfamiliar can heighten the overall experience and truly affect your vacation. When negligence ensues and accidents occur, there is a possibility that they could impose on your physical health, psychological well-being, and in some scenarios, they could impact your finances. If so, our panel of solicitors are well versed in UK and international law and could handle claims relating to:
- Airline accidents
- Airport accidents
- Packaged holiday negligence
- Train-line accidents
It should be noted that who is held accountable is dependent on how the holiday was booked. If your trip was booked as a package holiday through a UK-based tour operator and the negligent incident occurred during an entity of the holiday provided by the tour operator, then a claim will be conducted against them under UK legislation. This could include a flight or hotel supplied by the operator.
However, a claim will have to be made against the relevant third party in accordance with the law of the country in question if the holiday was booked independently.
If you have been the unfortunate victim of a violent crime, you might have experienced physical injuries or psychological suffering. When crimes of this nature occur, an awarded settlement cannot erase the suffering you have experienced. However, if you are able to make a successful claim, the awarded fee could help cover surprise medical bills, rehabilitation, or provide the affected individual with financial aid when adjusting to life after a violent crime.
If you have been the victim of a violent crime, you could present a claim through government bodies such as the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA). When making a claim for criminal injury compensation, you may ask yourself “how long does a CICA claim take?’’ In most cases, all eligible claims will take up to 12 months and cases of a complex nature could take longer. In order to make a successful claim, there are some additional steps you should consider, such as reporting the incident to the police.
When making a claim for criminal injury compensation, we would recommend that you speak with one of our advisors. There are time limits and factors that could affect your potential claim and our advisors have the expertise to discuss these elements in greater detail.
In addition to the claims that are listed above, our panel of no win no fee solicitors could assist those who have been affected by a negligent slip, trip or a fall. A slip or fall accident could happen at any moment, and in many cases, they could be the result of third party negligence. Accidents of this nature could happen if a business, landowner, or if the local government have failed to uphold their duty of care. Although there are preventive methods that could be performed, if these responsibilities have been neglected, accidents could be more prone to occur.
As outlined by the HSE, a majority of slip or fall accidents are caused by one of three causes:
- Design & maintenance
When the negligent actions of another party have obstructed your daily routine, it can have a serious impact on your finances, health, and your general well-being. If you have endured an injury or sustained mental distress through third party negligence that was caused by a slip, trip or fall, you could have grounds to make a personal injury claim.
If the circumstances that are described below sound familiar, then you may have experienced the mis selling of a financial product.
When seeking the assistance of a financial advisor, they are required by law to outline all possibilities and risks before an official decision has been made. Whether this is in relation to a mortgage, pension scheme, or a loan, you should be provided with extensive knowledge prior to any decision being made. Therefore, if a financial advisor fails to outline any threats, hidden fees, or alternate options you could’ve chosen, you may have been mis sold a financial product. If this is the case, you may have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation. However, you must have financially suffered in order to make a claim.
There are a variety of reasons why a landlord would request a deposit from a potential tenant. Not only does a deposit provide a sense of security for the landlord, but it acts as a mutual agreement between both parties. If you as a tenant have contractually met all obligations outlined within the tenancy agreement, you should receive your deposit within the legal timeframe. However, if a landlord fails to supply you with substantial evidence regarding your deposits location or fails to return your deposit, you could have grounds to claim it back.
A solicitor could claim between one and three times the amount of the deposit if a landlord has:
- Failed to insert your deposit into a government-backed scheme (within 30-days of the deposit being paid).
- Failed to provide you with information regarding the protection of your deposit.
- Failed to protect your deposit throughout the duration of the tenancy.
If you rent a property that has fallen into disrepair, the issue should be fixed within the appropriate amount of time. After all, a housing disrepair has the potential to cause illness, injury, and in some scenarios, disrepair could impact the tenant’s domestic bills and finances. This responsibility falls directly onto the operator of the property, which could include a housing association, private landlord, or the city council.
Regardless of the individual/body in charge, there is a direct responsibility to prevent issues from causing injury or damage. But in the event this duty has been neglected, you could have grounds to pursue a housing disrepair claim. Examples of housing disrepair could include:
- Structural defects (brick, roof, gutters, windows, doors)
- Defective and/or dangerous electrical system
- Leaks/water damage
- Insufficient water system
- Broken boiler system
If you rent a property that has fallen into disrepair then your landlord, the city council, or the housing association are directly responsible for fixing the matter. However, if they fail to uphold their duty of care, which results in illness, injury or financial loss that could have been avoided, then you could have grounds to pursue a damages claim for compensation.
If another party’s carelessness or a breach in the duty of obligation causes an injury or suffering, you could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation. To discover whether you have an eligible claim, why not contact someone from our team today?
