What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors?
A no win no fee solicitor would take on claims under a no win no fee agreement. This is a legal contract that sets out the terms and conditions under which your lawyer would receive payment. It would include the amount in percentage format that the lawyer would take as a success fee if your claim resulted in a payout. It would also detail that if your lawyer failed to secure compensation for a valid claim, you would not be required to pay their fees. By law, the solicitors success fee is capped at 25%. Now you know more about how these solicitors work, let’s see what kind of claims they could handle.

If you have been injured in a Salisbury road accident, and someone else caused the accident, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. You may also be able to claim for costs associated with your injuries, such as wage loss, care costs and travel expenses, for example.
But What Kinds Of Accidents Could Be Claimed For?
A no win no fee solicitor could help with claims including:
- A bus accident where the driver was negligent and had to brake hard, causing whiplash to passengers

- A motorcycle accident in Salisbury where a car dangerously overtook a motorcyclist and they suffered broken bones
- A pedestrian accident where a driver was negligent and mounted the pavement, causing injuries to a pedestrian.
These are just a selection of examples that could lead to a claim. Whatever your injuries and whether you were driving, a passenger, or a pedestrian, you could claim compensation if someone else caused the incident. This could even be the case if the person that caused the accident was not insured to drive the vehicle they were in or had fled the scene of the accident and could not be found. In those cases, a claim may be put into the MIB for compensation. A no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help you with this.
Medical negligence could take many forms.

- Negligence making a pre-existing condition worse
- Negligence causing further illness

It may be worth looking into making a work accident claim if you believe your employer was at fault for your injuries. Your employer has a duty to ensure you have a safe place to work, and working practices are safe while you are under their employment. Foreseeable risks should be minimised. This could be done in a number of ways, including:
- Fitting guards to machinery
- Providing PPE
- Providing safety training
- Removing or reducing hazards within the workplace, and signposting hazards when they cannot be removed.
These are just a few examples, and the actions that should be taken should relate to the risks within the specific workplace and job role. If a no win no fee solicitor could provide evidence that steps were not taken to protect you, and you suffered injuries, you may be in a position to make a claim.
Another reason claims could be brought against an employer is if you developed a work-related illness or condition that could have been prevented. Conditions such as dermatitis, repetitive strain injury, COPD and more could be contracted due to the work you do. If there were predictable risks of a person suffering one of these conditions, and the employer did not act to reduce those risks, you could make a claim if you went on to contract these illnesses/conditions.
Whatever type of workplace injury/illness you’ve suffered, if you believe it could have been prevented, then why not call our team to see if we could provide a no win no fee solicitor from our panel to help you make a claim?
Are you looking for compensation for an accident on holiday that caused you to suffer injuries? Was the accident someone else’s fault, either by way of irresponsible actions or negligence? If so, no win no fee solicitors covering Salisbury could help you make a claim, even if the incident that caused your injuries happened in another country. It would be prudent to mention that the personal injury claims time limit for such claims could vary, depending on the regulation or laws that your claim is being made under. It may be wise, therefore, to seek advice from a solicitor sooner rather than later. This could ensure that you’re within the relevant limitation period for making a claim.
Claims could be made under laws/regulations that could include:
Whether you have been injured at the airport, on an aeroplane, on a transfer to a hotel, at a hotel, on an excursion or more, then you could seek out a solicitor to help you make a compensation claim if someone else caused your injuries.
If you fell ill on holiday, you may also make a claim for compensation with a no win no fee solicitor if someone else caused you to fall ill. This could include:

In Wiltshire South, between the months of October 2018 and September 2019, there were 1868 reports of sexual or violent offences. If you’ve received injuries as the victim of a violent or sexual crime, including abuse, then you could look into whether no win no fee solicitors covering Salisbury could help you claim for compensation. Other reasons you could look at making a claim could be if you were injured mentally as a witness of a violent crime, or if you tried to stop a crime in progress but were injured in your attempts.

How Do I Claim Criminal Compensation For Historic Abuse
The previous section may have left you under the misapprehension that you would not be able to claim for cases that occurred more than two years ago, but in fact, if you’ve been the victim of historic abuse, you could claim much later in some cases. Historic abuse may not be reported to the police at the time, because a person suffering such abuse may struggle to process it. It could be argued that this prevented them from reporting to the police, and so an exception could be made to the limitation period for such claims. If you think you may have cause to claim for historic sexual abuse, please do get in touch and we’ll do all that we can to help you.
