It is an extremely unfortunate experience to be the victim of a violent crime, as it could have a serious impact on your health and well-being. Not only could your physical health be seriously affected, but you may also experience psychological suffering and a potential loss of earnings.
If you have been affected by a violent crime, it is understandable if you pursue a claim for compensation. After all, you may require funding to cover medical expenses, therapy, rehabilitation, or simply to cover the loss of potential earnings. If that is the case and you have been affected by violent crime, a solicitor from our panel could handle your potential claim and present it through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA). However, in order to make a claim of this nature, you must have reported the crime to the police. A failure to do so will hinder your possibility to make a claim for criminal injury compensation for victims.
In addition to the claims that have been listed above, our panel of solicitors has the experience and understanding to handle claims relating to slips, trips, and falls. An accident of this nature could be caused by a variety of components, but the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) identified that there are three common factors that regularly occur. These include;
- Design And Maintenance
When an accident of this nature is caused by third party negligence, the affected party could have grounds to make a claim against the liable party. However, it is worth highlighting that claims of this nature can be extremely complex, as there are various factors that need to be considered. For example, a claim could be made against several different parties depending on the location of the accident. From the city council, private landowners to business owners, each of these parties owe a duty of care to the visitors of their respected property. So in order to make a claim for personal injury compensation, having evidence is extremely crucial.
When making a financial purchase such as a mortgage, pension, or investment, it is understandable to seek the advice of a professional. In many cases, people seek out the expertise of a financial advisor, as they can offer insight, guidance, and support throughout the decision making process.
A financial advisor is bound by law to be honest, factual, and highlight all the relevant information throughout the decision making process. In doing so, an advisor must outline hidden fees, additional costs, alternative options, and highlight any financial risks. They are not allowed to mislead or missell a financial product, as this could have an impact on the customer’s finances. So if you have been mis-sold financial products and services that have resulted in a financial loss, then you could have grounds to make a claim. For more information and to discover whether you have a valid claim, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team. They can discuss your potential claim in greater length and answer any questions that you might have.
A tenancy deposit is a crucial step in the process of renting, as it acts as a mutual agreement between the landlord and tenant. Once the landlord has taken the deposit, there is a law set in place that requires them to submit the deposit into a government-backed scheme. In doing so, this ensures that the landlord cannot use the deposit as additional income, guaranteeing the deposit is used for its sole purpose.
When a tenancy comes to its end, the occupant will inherently anticipate their deposit to be returned within the legal timeframe of 10 days. However, a landlord will only return the deposit to the tenant if they have;
- Paid Bills On Time
- Left The Property In Great Shape
- Met The Obligations Outlined Within The Tenancy Deposit
If these obligations have been officially been completed but the landlord has failed to return the deposit (or provide written notice), then the tenant could have grounds to make a claim. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could assist claimants throughout the legal process and (potentially) achieve a settlement that is between one and three times the amount of the deposit.
There are many ways a property could fall into disrepair, and they each have the potential to inflict serious injury, harm, or financial loss. Common examples of disrepair include;
- Water Damage/Flooding
- Defective Boiler
- Broken Heating System
- Structural Defects
- Electrical Hazards
A tenant in a rented property has an obligation to inform the landlord if the property falls into disrepair. Without the landlord being official notified, then the disrepair could go unresolved, and depending on the type of disrepair, it could inflict injury, illness, or financial loss. In order to make a claim of this nature, the tenant must have notified the landlord of the official. But if a landlord has been notified and has failed to act accordingly, inflicting injury, illness, or financial loss onto the tenant, then they could have grounds to make a claim against them. If you are a tenant in a rented property, then it might be worth familiarizing yourself with the Pre-Action Protocol for housing disrepair.
