This is an online guide for those who are searching for a no win no fee solicitor covering Ashton-under-Lyne. If you have been affected by the negligence of a third party, you may have experienced a plethora of injuries or suffering ranging from physical to psychological, minor to major. When circumstances such as these occur, the affected party may have grounds to make a claim. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors have the expertise and know-how to handle a variety of compensation claims, ranging from medical negligence, road traffic incidents, to those injured by a criminal injury.
When claiming compensation, it is worth remembering that all potential cases could be affected by a compensation claims time limit. Depending on the type of claim you wish to make, the time limit could vary. For example, a personal injury claims time limit is typically three years, whereas a criminal injury compensation claim is two years. These time limits come into action from the moment of the negligent act, or alternatively, they begin once injuries or suffering, such as PTSD or psychological distress have been officially diagnosed.
For more information regarding time limits and whether you have an eligible claim, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our friendly advisors can answer any questions that you might have and can provide you with free, legal advice of no obligation.
No Win No Fee – What Does This Mean For My Claim?
If you wish to make a claim for compensation, a solicitor from our panel could offer a no win no fee agreement. This arrangement may also be referred to as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) that acts as a contract between the claimant and the solicitor.
Upon the grounds that a claim is valid, a no win no fee agreement could reduce the threats to claimants finances and provide them access to free legal advice. If a solicitor proceeds with a claim that results in a successful outcome, then the claimant will then be required to pay a “success fee” that is subsidised from the final settlement. In all cases, this fee is capped at 25% by law but can be discussed in greater detail upon meeting.
