How Our Panel Of No Win No Fee Solicitors Could Help You
If you’re wondering how a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help you, then you will first want to know first how this sort of claim works. In essence, a no win no fee claim requires no funds upfront to begin a claim. You would simply have to sign an agreement to pay your lawyer a percentage of your settlement as a success fee. This fee could not be more than 25 percent of your settlement. If your valid claim did not result in compensation, then you would not be required to pay the success fee written into your agreement.
But what is the benefit of using one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Selby?
Simply put, compensation claims could be complex and stressful for those that are not experienced in the law. Having someone who has knowledge training in the law could mean you have a stronger chance of securing a settlement than on your own, and it could in some cases even increase the amount you were to receive. You might have taken the first offer of settlement you received without the assessment of a no win no fee lawyer, but if you had the advice of a lawyer, you could have refused a settlement and waited for a better offer had that been appropriate. So why not look at the types of claims this sort of solicitor could help you with?

In 2018, there were 1784 fatalities reported in UK road accidents. While this is a lower figure than in previous years, it does show how serious road traffic accidents could be. While you could claim on behalf of a loved one that has been killed in a road accident that was not their fault, you could also claim for more minor injuries that were inflicted as a result of a Selby traffic accident, such as whiplash.
Whether you were injured as a result of a head-on collision, a pedestrian accident, an accident in a taxi or bus, or as a motorcyclist or cyclist, if the accident was caused by another road user, then you could claim not only for the pain you’ve had to bear because of your injury, but also for monetary costs incurred as a result of the road accident you’ve been injured in. This could include costs such as wage loss, travel costs, adaptations to your home and more.
But what happens if the person that caused the accident didn’t have the right insurance or didn’t even stop at the scene and remained untraceable? In these cases, you may still be able to make a claim with the help of one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Selby. These claims would go through the MIB.
Another type of claim that a personal injury lawyer could help you with is a claim for medical negligence. If you have been made more ill, suffered an injury, or suffered a deterioration of health that could have been avoided had negligence not occurred, a no win no fee solicitor could help put together a claim for compensation on your behalf. This is because medical staff have a duty of care towards their patients and if they harm their patients by failing in this duty, they could be held liable for the harm that has been caused.
Medical negligence claim examples could include:
- Birth injury claims
- Care home negligence claims
- Dental negligence claims
- Surgical negligence claims
- Hospital negligence claims
- GP negligence claims
- Blood test negligence claims
- And more…
You could not only make a claim for NHS negligence but also for private practice negligence too. Whether you’ve been misdiagnosed, neglected in a care home, received a wrong prescription or more, and you have been harmed because of the negligence, then one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Selby could put a claim forward on your behalf.
If you suffered injuries in a workplace accident, then you may be wondering what constitutes a workplace injury claim? Simply put, if your employer hasn’t taken appropriate action to protect your safety while you are at work, and you are injured, they could be held liable for your injuries. The action an employer should take when attempting to protect your health and safety could differ wildly between workplaces. For example, the risks associated with working in an industrial plant would be vastly different from those present on a shop floor. Some examples of different actions an employer could take could include:
- Ensuring you are provided with the relevant protective equipment to help you do your job safely
- Ensuring you are provided with the relevant training to do your job safely
- Ensuring that any equipment you used is checked, maintained and replaced/repaired when necessary
- Ensuring that your workplace is free of foreseeable hazards, or that hazards are signposted
- And more…
If an employer has failed to take reasonable action to protect your health and safety and you obtain injuries in an accident that could have been avoided, then a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help you make a claim for compensation.
The same may be true of workplace conditions/illnesses that develop over a period of time. This could include mesothelioma, industrial deafness, hand-arm vibration syndrome, repetitive strain injury and more. If your employer hasn’t reduced risks of you developing such a condition, then they could be held liable if you went on to develop such a condition. A no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help you with claims of this nature too.
If you were injured on holiday and the accident that caused your injuries was not your fault, then it may be possible to use the services of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Selby to help you claim compensation. This could even be the case for incidents that happen in another country. In some cases, these claims could be based on UK legislation, such as the Package Travel Regulations. In others, they might be based on international laws, such as the Montreal Convention, while in others, your claim may be based on the laws of the country you were injured in. But what sort of common holiday accident claims could be made? Here, we give some examples:
- You suffered a bout of food poisoning due to unsanitary hygiene practices in the hotel kitchen
- You suffered allergies because you were served pre-packaged food without allergens listed on the plane
- You slipped and fell in the airport because a spillage was not signposted or cleared up
- You suffered injuries because of broken tiles in the swimming pool
- You suffered carbon monoxide poisoning because of a faulty gas heating system in your accommodation
- You were injured falling from an unsafe balcony in your hotel
- You were injured while on transfer to your hotel in a coach crash
Whatever type of injury you’ve suffered, if it was not your fault and someone else is to blame, you could claim compensation with the assistance of a no win no fee solicitor from our panel.
If you’re wondering ‘do victims of assault get compensation?’ the answer would be ‘in some cases, yes they could’, but only if certain conditions were met.
In Selby, between November 2018 and October 2019, police received reports of 1756 violent/sexual offences. If you have been injured because of a violent criminal act, whether you were a victim, someone injured while trying to stop an attack, or as a witness of a violent crime, then you could utilise the services of one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Selby to help you make a claim to the Criminal Injury Compensation Authoirty (CICA). There is usually a shorter time period in which you can make a claim to CICA than with other personal injury claims. In most cases, this limit is two years from the date of the offence. However, there are some exceptions.
Sexual Abuse Claimants
One such exception could be possible in the case of sexual abuse that happened historically. Victims of such crimes may not be able to properly process the abuse until many years later, it could still be possible for you to make a claim for compensation. If you’d like to speak to someone in confidence, then our expert team would be happy to help you.
The above are just a few examples of different types of accidents in Selby claims. There could be others. Whether you’ve had an accident at Selby park, in a supermarket or shop, on the street or in a beauty salon, you could consider claiming compensation if a third party were liable for your injuries.
Accidents that were someone else’s fault could include slips and falls over spillages that should have been cleared up, faulty product injuries, beauty treatment injuries and more. No win no fee solicitors covering Selby could help with all of these types of claim or more, so if your accident isn’t listed, don’t hesitate to call our team to check whether you could make a claim.
We should mention here that usually, with personal injury claims, there is a personal injury claims time limit of 3 years. However, there could be some exceptions to this time limit, so don’t hesitate to check this out with us too.
Aside from personal injury claims, a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could also help with pension misselling claims too. In fact, if you were sold a product such as a pension, mortgage or annuity, and the following applies to your situation, then you may have been mis sold to and you could consider claiming compensation:
- Were you made fully aware of all fees and charges pertaining to the product?
- Was the product suitable for your needs?
- Were the product’s risks explained to you fully?
- Were you offered alternatives?
If you have answered no to the above questions you may have been mis sold.
- Did you feel under pressure to sign up for a product?
- Was the product unsuitable for you?
If you have answered yes to the above questions, then you may have been mis sold to.
However, in order to have a valid claim for financial mis selling you must have suffered as a result of the above and lost out financially as a result.
If you’re now wondering whether you could claim compensation for being mis sold a product, then why not give us a call. We could help to clarify the situation and offer a no win no fee solicitor from our panel where appropriate to take a claim forward on your behalf.
