In the unlikely event that the solicitor fails to win your case, you won’t have to pay them for their legal fees.

No Win No Fee Claims For Accidents On Holiday
Southampton is quite a popular holiday destination and is also a major port for cruise ships. Most people travelling to and from Southampton for their holidays do so without any problems. In other cases, though, accidents caused by somebody else’s negligence could really spoil a holiday and lead to serious injuries.
You could use our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Southampton to help with claims where you have suffered an avoidable injury in circumstances such as;
- Hotel accident claims.
- Cruise ship claims.
- Airplane based injuries.
- Package holiday accident claims.
- Accidents within an airport.
Different types of legislation are used to protect holidaymakers in the UK and abroad. This legislation can be used by a solicitor as a basis for a claim when an accident has been caused by the neglect of a holiday company or its staff. It is important to bare in mind that if you have booked a holiday as a package deal through a UK vendor, you may be able to make a claim against that company depending where the incident happened. However, if you booked your holiday, including travel, accommodation, separately etc, you may need to make the claim against the company themselves, using the law relating to compensation in that specific country. Please note, our panel of no win no fee solicitors are versed in both UK and International law and may be able to assist you in making your holiday claim. Please get in touch with us to find out more.
No Win No Fee Criminal Injury Lawyers Covering Southampton
You may not be aware but no win no fee criminal injury lawyers could help you claim for a criminal injury you have suffered. The claim could be for sexual, physical or mental injuries caused to you during the criminal act.
The rules for criminal injury claims are different from that of a standard personal injury claim. You’ll need to have reported the crime to the police and you only have 2 years to begin your claim. Any claims made for criminal injury are processed through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA), a government scheme designed to compensate victims of criminal injuries. For more information regarding CICA, and historical sex abuse time limits please read here.
More Accident Claims You Could Make
There are many other types of injury claims that our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Southampton can help with. Some are fairly common and can happen almost anywhere. These include slips, trips and falls and accidents in public places which can result in some very serious injuries. These can be caused by damaged paths or flooring, slippery floors without warning signs, cables trailed across your workplace or icy conditions that haven’t been cleared properly.
To be able to claim for a fall, you’ll need to be able to show how somebody else caused the accident or through negligence allowed the incident to happen. We recommend photographic evidence or CCTV footage for these types of claims.
Other claims include accidents involving children. Whereas an adult has generally 3 years to make a claim, a parent or responsible adult has until the child’s 18th birthday to begin a claim on the child’s behalf. Failing that, the now adult can make the claim on their own between their 18th and 21st birthday. We can advise you on how to make a claim on behalf of your child when you call one of our advisors.
No Win No Fee Claims For Mis-Sold Financial Products And Services
It’s possible to make a claim for mis-sold financial products and services if they’ve caused you to lose out financially. There are a number of regulations from the Financial Conduct Authority surrounding the selling of financial products like pensions and investments.
If it can be shown that your financial losses were caused by poor advice from an independent financial advisor, then you could be able to make a claim against them. Financial mis-selling could be claimed if:
- You were advised to invest in risky products.
- There was no consideration made to your lifestyle or health.
- You weren’t given a range of options.
- You felt pressured into investing or buying the product.
If you would like advice about making a financial mis-selling claim, please contact an advisor today. We are happy to offer free advice and help you decide whether you have the evidence to support a claim or not.
No Win No Fee Tenancy Deposit Claims
Recent regulations for tenancy agreements mean landlords should protect your deposit by placing it in a tenancy deposit scheme. Failure to do so could mean you’re entitled to make a no win no fee tenancy deposit claim.
The claim could potentially be for between 1 and 3 times the amount of deposit and you could claim when:
- The landlord failed to use a protection scheme within 30 days of payment.
- Where your deposit was not protected for the length of your agreement.
- Or they failed to tell you where your deposit was protected within 30 days.
Housing Disrepair Claims With No Win No Fee Solicitors
When you rent a property from a private landlord or housing association, they have a duty of care to maintain it and repair any faults. Failure to do so could lead to no win no fee housing disrepair claims.
You can’t claim just because the property is in disrepair, it will need to have affected you physically or financially. For instance:
- If you’ve had to pay for repairs your landlord failed to complete.
- Where your personal property has been damaged due to the disrepair.
- Failure to maintain the property resulting in mould which therefore has undue health consequences.
It’s best to try and keep hold of any receipts as evidence and also to photograph any damage caused. You should also print out and keep copies of any emails sent to your landlord to prove you reported the faults because this can be used as evidence to support your claim.
