How To Make No Win No Fee Claims
If you have been the victim of negligence in North Yorkshire, then a solicitor from our panel could offer you a no win no fee agreement. In many cases, a claim of this nature may also be referred to as a Conditional Fee Agreement, and it simply serves as a mutual contract between the claimant and the solicitor. If a solicitor embraces your claim that has a successful outcome, you will then be required to pay a success fee for the services they have provided. By law, this fee is capped at 25% but it can be discussed in greater detail with your solicitor. But in the event a solicitor accepts your claim and fails to win an awarded settlement, the no win no fee agreement reduces to the threat to your finances.

Our panel of no win no fee solicitors are well versed in the UK and International law, meaning they could handle holiday compensation claims no matter what country the incident occurred in.

Not only could your physical health be seriously affected, but you may have experienced psychological suffering and a loss of potential earnings. There are some scenarios where victims of violent crime are unsure whether they have a legal right to claim compensation for criminal injuries.

Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could handle your potential claim, as they have experience presenting claims to the Criminal Injury Claims Authority (CICA). Although a financial settlement cannot erase the suffering you have experienced, it could provide you with financial aid during the recovery process, or alternatively, it could cover the loss of potential earnings, medical expenses, and adjusting to life after a violent crime. In order to make a claim of this nature, the crime must have been reported to the police.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors have the expertise to handle a wide variety of cases, and in addition to the claims that have been listed above, they could handle a slip or fall claim for compensation. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), a slip or fall accident is often caused by one of three common factors. These include;
- Design And Maintenance.
When a slip or fall incident occurs, there are a variety of parties who could be liable. Depending on the location of your accident, the negligent actions and liability could vary. For example, the city council, private landowners or business owners could be at fault if they have neglected their duty of care. In the event you experience an injury of such nature, then it is vital that you obtain evidence that displays the relevant party at fault. Without evidence, it will be increasingly difficult to hold the negligent party liable and claim for a settlement. So if you have been involved in a slip or fall accident in North Yorkshire, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
When making a decision regarding a financial product, whether this is in relation to a mortgage, pension, or an investment, it is understandable to be thorough and well prepared. After all, you should be fully informed and well-appointed before making any financial verdict. In some circumstances, there are scenarios where a customer may seek the expertise of a financial adviser, using their guidance and knowledge to contribute towards their decision.
A financial adviser is bound by the law to be factual, honest, and always prioritise the needs of a customer. In doing so, an adviser must outline all the relevant information regarding the financial product in question, which must be done before any decision has been made. This includes fees, hidden costs, alternative options and risks to the customer’s finances. An adviser is not allowed to have a bias, mis sell, or mis lead a customer into any financial decision, especially towards a product that could jeopardise their finances. But in the event a financial adviser neglects this responsibility and have caused a financial loss, then you could have grounds to make a claim for compensation.
A tenancy deposit is a crucial step in the process of renting a property, as it acts as a mutual agreement between both the landlord and the tenant. Once the landlord receives the deposit, there is a law set in place to ensure the money is used for its sole purpose, not as an additional income for the landlord. However, if you wish to make a tenant deposit compensation claim, then there are some elements that need to be considered beforehand. In order to make a claim of this nature, the tenant must have successfully;
- Paid Bills On Time
- Left The Property In Good Condition
- Met The Obligations Outlined Within The Tenancy Agreement
If these requirements have been completed, then the tenant will expect their deposit to be returned within the legal time frame of 10 days of agreeing when the deposit should be returned. If a landlord fails to return a deposit after the guidelines within the tenancy agreement have successfully been completed, then the tenant could have grounds to make a claim. A tenant may also have grounds if a landlord has neglected these crucial steps outlined by Shelter;
- Project The Deposit Throughout The Tenancy
- Provide The Tenant With Written Confirmation
- Place The Deposit Into A Government Backed Scheme
A landlord is required by law to uphold these values and return the deposit in good faith. But if they fail to do so, then a solicitor from our panel could handle your claim. To discover more, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team today.
If you are a tenant in a rented property that has fallen into disrepair, you should report the matter to your landlord as soon as possible. Without the landlord’s acknowledgment, they won’t be able to fix the disrepair accordingly, which could lead to illness, injury, or financial loss. Without being informed of the disrepair, the landlord will not be liable for any repercussions that befall onto the tenant, as they have not been correctly notified. Common examples of disrepair may include
- Water Damage (Such as flooding)
- Defective Boiler
- Electrical Hazards
- Mould And Damp
If a landlord has been officially informed of housing disrepair and has failed to act accordingly, then a claim could be made against them. In order to make a claim of this nature, the tenant must have suffered financially, health-wise, or been injured. In the event a housing disrepair claim goes to court, it might be worth familiarizing yourself with the pre-action protocol for a housing disrepair case, as it offers some extremely informative and useful facts.
If you have been affected by the actions or omissions of a third party and wish to make a claim, a no win no fee solicitor could be of service. To start your claim, why not contact a member of our team, as they can offer you free legal advice of no obligation?
