What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors Covering Glasgow?
When making a claim for negligence, whether for a holiday illness or an accident at work compensation, you could in many cases try and bring a claim against a liable party on your own. However, the benefits of using the services of a no win no fee solicitor could be significant.
While a large proportion of legal proceedings can be costly for the claimant, there are not upfront fees in a no win no fee agreement. Only once the case is successful will the solicitor retain a pre determined percentage of no more than 25% of the settlement amount awarded.

If you have been injured in some way because of a traffic accident in Glasgow that was someone else’s fault, you could be looking into claiming road traffic accident (RTA) or whiplash injury compensation.
Whiplash is one of the more common injuries suffered in RTA accidents and it could cause harm to both drivers and passengers within any type of vehicle. While it does not always lead to serious injury, it could be significant enough for you to seek compensation.
At the other end of the spectrum, you may have suffered significant or even life-changing injuries as a result of a traffic accident. In either case, there may be a settlement amount waiting for you at the end of the claims process if your injuries were the result of negligence.
A claim for medical negligence could be tricky to prove, especially when there might be pre-existing medical conditions involved. However, you could be entitled to damages if the quality of treatment that you received from an NHS or private healthcare practitioner caused you to suffer unnecessarily. Below are some examples of what circumstances may be considered valid grounds to conduct a claim on:
- Care home negligence – If a loved one (or yourself) has been neglected in a care home and thus suffered harm because of this.
- Misdiagnosis – If you have been given an incorrect/late or misdiagnosis and your illness/injury has become worse, then you could seek legal assistance.
- Surgical negligence – This term describes mistakes made by a member of the surgical team which leads to injury or harm. E.g. part of the body was operated on or the wrong operation entirely was completed.
- Dental negligence – A dentist’s negligent advice and/or treatment which has led to the condition of your mouth becoming worse or damage to otherwise healthy gums/teeth.
- GP/Hospital Negligence – For example, a form of malpractice during treatment or advice that was given by a healthcare professional and your health deteriorated as a result.
These are just a few examples. Call us today to discuss your unique circumstances with an expert from our team.
When you are left with an injury or illness from an accident at work, you should take a moment to consider whether this could have been avoided had the correct precautions been taken by your employer to ensure a minimum standard of safety. After all, if anything more could have been done to avoid the accident entirely, your employer could be held liable.
As a rule of thumb, your employer owes you and your colleagues a duty of care. If they do not provide relevant training, instructions, protective equipment or a safe working environment, you could be injured because of this negligence.
In such circumstances, the personal injury claims time limit may differ. For example:
You could have up to three years to claim from the accident date for many accidents at work, including trips, falls, burns, and crush injuries. However, if you have a workplace illness that you developed over a longer period of time, this 3 year limit may begin the day you were diagnosed. These types of conditions could include industrial deafness, mesothelioma and RSI, to name but a few.
If you are a little worried about claiming compensation from your employer, it should be highlighted that not only is there legislation protecting your rights as any other employee when you make a claim, but your employer should have taken out insurance that would pay for your settlement. In the event that you are treated with discrimination for making a claim, our expert team could also help with unfair dismissal/discrimination claims against your employer.
A valid holiday injury claim could be conducted for various forms of harm suffered in a range of circumstances. However, the question of who this claim may be directed at is entirely dependent on how the holiday was booked.
For a package holiday, the claim will be made against the tour operator providing the accident occurred within the entity/service associated with the package. If you suffered holiday sickness because of poor hygiene in the hotel and this hotel was incorporated in your package deal, the claim will be conducted under UK legislation against the operator in question.
However, if you booked the holiday yourself or you experienced harm on a form of transport/excursion/etc. that wasn’t included in the package, the person/facility responsible will be handled under the law of that country.
Hotel accident claims – Whether it was a swimming pool accident, sickness caused by infected food, a slip or fall on an uneven floor that was not clearly marked, you could consider using a no win no fee solicitor to help you make a claim.
Airport accident claims – Again, a valid claim could be made if you suffered a slip on a wet floor, a burn in an airport lounge due to staff spilling a drink on you, or were injured because of a fault with the lifts.
Airline/Train accident claims – Whether you’ve suffered injury when boarding or disembarking an aircraft or train, or while on your journey, if it was someone else’s fault you could consider making a claim for compensation.
Accidents on package holidays – As previously mentioned, if you have been injured while on a package holiday you could claim compensation for anything from holiday sickness to swimming pool accidents as long as someone else was to blame. You could be covered by the Package Holiday Regulations for this type of claim.
For criminal injury claims, if you were the victim of a violent crime, injured trying to halt a criminal act, or were witness to a violent incident, as long as it was reported to the police, you could consider putting a claim through Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) with the help of a no win no fee solicitor.
A claim made through the CICA would usually come with a shorter time limit for claiming in most cases, with just a 2 year limit from the date of the incident in most cases.
Claiming For Historical Sexual Abuse
It could be possible to bring a historical claim for sexual abuse to the CICA even if you are outside of the 2-year time limit, as it could be argued that it may take years to process the abuse in your mind to come to a point where you feel ready to talk to someone about it. If this is similar to your circumstances, we promise to handle your claim with the utmost of care, as we know this could still be very difficult for you to talk about.
Please call us and we will work to match you with a no win no fee solicitor that is appropriate for your case.
There are a number of other incidents that could lead to a compensation claim. These could include slip and fall accident claims that happen in public places, which could be brought against the council or a private business, depending on who had responsibility for the area you were injured in.
Whatever type of injury you’ve experienced, if it was someone else’s fault, you can call us to see if we feel you have a valid claim for compensation.
If you have been the victim of pension mis-selling or the mis-selling of other financial products, you could also call on a no win no fee solicitor to assist with a claim.
While the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has regulations in place that stipulate that the most suitable products should be offered to their clients, this does not mean that they always are. There are various ways for financial products to be mis-sold. Whether your advisor has not advised you of the high risk of an investment or they have not provided you other information you would need to make an informed decision on a pension product, you could look into whether you could make a claim for financial loss.
If you have a dispute with your landlord, whether this may be a local authority, housing trust or a private landlord, you may want to consider seeking legal assistance for support throughout. Some examples of disputes may include:
- Where a landlord failed to protect your deposit through the relevant deposit protection scheme within the space of 30 days from the date you paid it.
- Where a landlord has failed to provide you information about the deposit scheme your deposit has been placed in – this must also be done within 30 days.
- Where a landlord completely failed to protect your deposit.
In cases such as these, you could claim as much as three times the amount you paid in deposit as compensation.
If your landlord or letting agent has left your housing in disrepair, you could engage the services of a no win no fee solicitor to help you with a disrepair claim. These could include:
- Damages that have happened to your belongings/property
- Destruction to your belongings/property
- Domestic bill increases directly due to disrepair (e.g. water bills for leaks, energy bills for broken windows, etc.)
You would need to be able to prove these costs and the damage, so it would be wise to photograph the condition of the property along with bank statements, bills and receipts. This could help a solicitor build a case against your landlord.
