This is an online guide for those who have been affected by third party negligence and wish to make a claim for compensation. Here at No Win No Fee Expert, we could connect those who wish to make a claim with a no win no fee solicitor covering Newham. Our panel of solicitors have the expertise to handle a variety of claims, from those injured by whiplash, to those suffering financially as the result of a mis sold pension. So if you have been affected by the negligent actions of a third party and wish to make a claim, please contact a member of our team.
It is worth remembering that a claim for compensation could be affected by a time limit. For example, there is a personal injury claims time limit of 3 years in which you must begin your claim. This can be 3 years as of the negligent act, or 3 years from the moment injuries caused by negligence (such as PTSD) have been officially diagnosed. These rules also apply to other claims such as a criminal injury claim, but instead of 3 years, a claim of this nature must begin within 2 years of the event.
For more information regarding time limits or no win no fee solicitors, please contact a member of our team. They discuss your potential claim in greater detail and outline whether your claim meets the applicable time limit.
When Are You Eligible To Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
If you have been affected by third party negligence, then you might be searching for a solicitor covering Newham who could handle your claim. A solicitor from our panel could offer those with a valid claim a no win no fee agreement when representing their case.
An arrangement of this nature is often referred to as a Conditional Fee Agreement and acts as a signed mutual agreement between the solicitor and the claimant. If a solicitor from our panel takes on a valid claim that has a successful outcome, the claimant will be required to pay a success fee. This fee is deducted from the final settlement that has been awarded and acts as a payment for the services that have been provided. By law, this fee is capped at 25% and will be discussed in greater detail upon meeting with your personal injury solicitor. If a solicitor accepts a valid claim that has an unsuccessful outcome, then a no win no fee agreement reduces the threat to the claimant’s finances.

An employer is both legally and ethically obligated to maintain and upkeep the safety of all employees by highlighting and preventing hazardous causes to the best of their ability. To do so, there are measures that an employer can undertake that will create a safe working space and contribute to the safety and well-being of their employees. Potential measures that could be performed may include;
- Risk Assessments
- Routine Inspections
- Providing Work Gear
- Regular Housekeeping
- Providing Effective Training (correct lifts, equipment use age)
If an employer neglects their duty of care, this is considered a breach of their legal responsibility. In the event this occurs, it could inflict an (Avoidable) workplace accident. If that is the case and negligence occurs, then you should consider these steps provided by Citizens Advice, as they recommend that you should;
- Seek Medical Attention
- Take Photographs
- Report The Incident To Your Place Of Work
- Collect The Details of Those Who Witnessed The Accident
When travelling for a holiday, it is fairly common to experience delays. After all, a trip to an airport isn’t always a smooth and effortless experience. However, there is a distinct difference between stressful situations to a negligent one. So if you have been affected by third party negligence whilst travelling, you could have grounds to make a claim
Whether you were injured during your flight, experienced a delay, or your luggage was lost or damaged, these responsibilities fall on to the airline. If you have been affected by flight delays or negligence, then you could make a claim under the Montreal Convention (1999). The convention holds airlines directly accountable for the safety, well-being, and over the experience of their passengers. So in the moments where they neglect this crucial responsibility, our panel of no win no fee solicitors could assist you in making a claim under the convention.
You may also have grounds to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured on a package holiday. To make a claim of this nature, you must have experienced negligence during a pre-distinguished part of the package. For example, if you booked a package holiday that included a flight and accommodation, and during your stay at the hotel you suddenly become injured (due to negligence), then you could have grounds to make a claim against the tour operator.
Violent crime is never a joyous or predictable experience, and in many cases, those who have been affected by violent crime may encounter a variety of injuries. Not only could your physical health be seriously affected, but your psychological well-being and financial earnings could also suffer. If you have been affected by a violent crime, it is extremely understandable if you are lost and unsure of what to do. Nobody prepares for the aftermath of a violent crime, but here at No Win No Fee Expert, we could connect you with a solicitor from our panel covering Newham who could handle the claim on your behalf.
Our panel of solicitors could assist those who have been affected by;
- Sexual Assault
- Bereavement Due To A Violent Crime
- Injured Trying To Prevent A Crime
- Hit And Run
- Physical Assault
- Domestic Abuse
If you have been affected by a violent crime, making a claim for an awarded settlement could be a viable and feasible option. Although it cannot take away the suffering you’ve experienced, a financial settlement could cover any surprise costs you’ve experienced, such as medical expenses, therapy, rehabilitation/physio, or the loss of earnings. Our panel of solicitors could present your claim to the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) and provide you with legal guidance and support throughout the process.
In addition to the claims that have been listed above, our panel of solicitors could handle a slip, trip, or fall claim for compensation. It was outlined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that there are three common factors that contribute to a slip or fall accident. These include;
- Design And Maintenance
A claim of this nature is quite complex, but our panel of solicitors could assist you throughout the process. But in order to make a claim of this nature, it is essential that the affected party has evidence. Without evidence, it will be increasingly difficult to make a successful claim, as the negligent party cannot be held accountable.
When making a financial purchase, it can be quite a stressful and intimidating experience. There is a lot of information and factors that contribute to a financial purchase, which is why many people seek out the guidance and expertise of a financial adviser. However, a financial adviser should always provide the customer with honest, factual, and unbiased advice. This is because they are bound by the law to remain unbiased throughout the decision making process.
But in the event an adviser fails to outline hidden fees, additional costs, or outline alternative options, this could cause a financial loss for the customer. If that is the case, then a solicitor from our panel could potentially handle your claim for compensation. But in order to make a claim of this nature, you must have experienced a financial loss caused by an adviser’s misselling or advice.
For information regarding this style of claim, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team, as they can discuss this in greater detail and answer any questions that you might have.
When a tenancy agreement comes to its end, it is understandable for a tenant to expect their deposit to be returned in full. However, a landlord will only return a tenancy deposit back to the tenant if they have successfully;
- Left The Property In Good Condition
- Paid Their Bills On Time
- Met The Obligations Outlined Within The Tenancy Agreement
However, if the tenant has successfully completed all of the regulations outlined above, there should be no reason why they do not receive their deposit. If that is the case, then a solicitor from our panel could make a claim for compensation. According to Shelter.org, a landlord is required to;
- Protect The Deposit Throughout The Tenancies Duration
- Supply The Tenant With Written Information
- Place The Deposit Into A Government Backed Scheme
As a tenant in a rented property, whether you’re in a private property or social housing, you have an obligation to inform your landlord of any disrepair that befalls onto the property. Without being informed, a landlord cannot tend to the disrepair accordingly, which may lead to illness, injury, or financial loss. But if you have informed the landlord and they have failed to act, this is a direct breach in their duty of care.
If you have informed the landlord of disrepair in social or private housing and you experience negligence as a direct result, then you could have grounds to make a claim for compensation. There are many ways that property could experience disrepair, and common examples include;
- Structural Defects
- Electrical Issues
- Issues With The Boiler
So if you have been directly affected by the negligence of a landlord, resulting in injury, illness, or financial loss, then you could have grounds to make a claim. For more information regarding social housing and private accommodation claims, please contact a member of our team.
