Find Out If You Could Make A No Win No Fee Claim
If after reading this guide you decide to make your claim with a no win no fee solicitor handling claims for Bury St Edmunds residents from our panel, you could first want to know what a no win no fee agreement is. In essence, this type of agreement is a contract made between a personal injury solicitor (or other legal professional) and the claimant. It is signed before the solicitor starts working on your claim and it will outline what work the solicitor will carry out for you and how their fees will be paid.
The no win no fee agreement should confirm that if you do not win your claim for compensation, you will not have to pay your solicitors fees. However if you do, you will need to pay your solicitor a “success fee”. This can be deducted from your settlement before it is paid to you. Whilst amounts may vary from case to case, the full amount can not be higher than 25% of your settlement.
You could find out more about how no win no fee agreements work and if you could use one by reading our guide here or by contacting our team.

One of the most prevalent accidents in which people are injured are slips and falls. This type of accident could happen almost anywhere and in numerous different circumstances. An unattended spillage in a restaurant or supermarket could cause someone to slip over or a broken tile by a swimming pool could cause you to trip over.

Other types of claims could include accidents befalling a child. This could happen at school, on a school trip, or in other circumstances.

By law there are certain steps which a landlord should take to protect your rental deposit throughout the duration of your tenancy. If they have failed to follow these steps, such as withholding a deposit at the end of your tenancy, you could be eligible to claim compensation with a solicitor covering Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Legally, your landlord should make sure that any rental or tenancy deposit you pay to them is safely kept with one of the three Tenancy Deposit Protection Schemes accredited by the government. The deposit must be placed into a protection scheme within 30 days of payment to the landlord. You should be provided with written confirmation that it has been protected, and with which scheme it is deposited with. Failing to provide you with this information could lead to your having grounds on which to claim compensation. Remember, providing that you have kept to the terms of your tenancy this deposit should be returned in full at the end of your tenancy.

If you rent your home either from a private landlord, your local council or even through a housing association, they have an obligation to ensure that your home is kept in a reasonable state of repair. If they have failed to carry out repairs in a reasonable period of time (after you notifying them of the issue) and you were injured or suffered a health problem linked to this disrepair, you could make a housing disrepair claim.
In such cases, a solicitor may be able to establish that your landlord is not fulfilling their legal duties to you, i.e. they are not providing you with housing which is habitable and safe. If this is the case, you may be able to make a housing disrepair claim against your landlord.
Injuries or health issues which may be caused by housing disrepair could include:
- Health problems caused by a lack of proper heating, hot water, or damage which causes draughts. Cracks around door or window frames may cause this.
- Health problems linked to exposure to damp, rising damp or moulds such as black mould. See how damp and mould could affect your health here.
- Trips or falls caused by broken flooring through the property.
If you have been affected by disrepair, please read this guide from the Government about taking action against a landlord.
