Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could provide you with a no win no fee car accident claim if you have suffered an injury in a road traffic accident in Wigan that was not your fault. Our panel of solicitors will help you prove, if possible, that the other party was at fault for your accident, for example, if a pedestrian has rushed out into the road in front of you where there was no crossing, or if you have collided with another vehicle which turned without indicating. You can read a guide to road traffic accident injuries on our website here and a guide for whiplash injuries here.
We work with a panel of medical solicitors covering Wigan who can handle medical negligence claims. Medical negligence claims are personal injury claims that you can make against either the NHS or a private practitioner if you have been injured or suffered health problems as a result of poor quality care. This would be classed as a situation in which your health problems can be linked to a doctor, a nurse or any other health sector worker who has not followed guidelines by neglecting their patient or making mistakes that they should reasonably be expected not to make. This can come in many forms. Being misdiagnosed or provided with an inappropriate prescription by a GP could be one example, suffering from neglect while residing in a nursing care home could be another. Suffering injuries or infections as a result of botched surgery, including dental procedures is also a potential example of medical negligence.
You could make a claim against a hospital if your health has been affected by medical negligence, for example, if hospital staff have not been properly monitoring your vital signs, your meals or your medication intake. Another example could be if you have bedsores or other health problems related to being bed-bound as a result of staff failing to turn you properly.
Our panel of solicitors are also able to help you make no win no fee accident at work claims if you have suffered an injury at work in Wigan if it can be proven that the accident was caused by negligence towards safety by your employer. For example if you have received burns to your hand due to improper gloves being provided or have suffered an eye injury from a lack of proper eye protection. Accident at work claims can also cover a wide range of work related health hazards besides being directly injured by a specific accident, for example you could also be entitled to compensation if you are suffering from a long term health condition brought on by long term exposure to hazardous materials or working conditions without proper protection. For example working around fumes and particulates such as wood dust, silica’s or flour without face masks or a ventilated working area can lead to long term damage to the lungs. Vibration White Finger can be caused by prolonged use of vibrating machinery such as power tools. Work related stress, which could be caused by workplace bullying or being overworked can be grounds for making a claim. Adding to the previous examples, being the victim of an assault due to a lack of security features in the workplace could also lead to a claim for compensation if you have been injured as a result.
Depending on the circumstances our panel of holiday accident claims solicitors can help you carry out a no win no fee claim for an injury that took place abroad in the same manner as they would handle any other claim in Wigan. If your accident took place while you were on a holiday booked through a package deal then your holiday company will be liable and our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Wigan will be able to take on your claim, in the same manner that they would handle any other claim against a UK based organisation. The exception to this would be any injuries that took place outside of what was booked through your package deal. For example, if you have been on an excursion that you booked yourself or in a bar when your injury took place then the accident claim would be against the owners or operators of the business in question. In these circumstances, or on a holiday that you arranged yourself the accident claim would have to be made according to the law of the country where the accident took place. We may still be able to provide you with a solicitor from our panel in these circumstances who is qualified in the law of the relevant country. To find out if this can be arranged for you then call or contact us to speak to our advisors.
The government’s Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) can provide you with financial compensation if you have been the victim of a violent crime. CICA provides compensation for assault victims who have suffered physical injuries as well as compensation for psychological injuries caused either by being subjected to a criminal assault as well as people who have suffered psychological health issues as a result of witnessing a violent crime. Your eligibility to receive criminal injury compensation is not linked to the outcome of a trial, you can claim for and receive compensation before the trial of the suspect(s) begins or even if there has been no arrests of the suspects.
Sexual assault and sexual abuse are also grounds for a compensation claim. There are many people who are only now coming forward to describe incidents of sexual harassment they have experienced or rape or sexual abuse they have suffered. You may be hesitant to seek prosecution or compensation for historic sexual abuse if it happened a long time ago. However, the usual criminal injuries claims time limit of two years can be suspended in cases of historic sexual abuse to allow victims to claim compensation. Again in these types of situations, a conviction is not required, only reporting the incident to the police is.
No win no fee personal injury claims can be made for all sorts of accidents, including everyday accidents which you might assume is no-one’s fault or are too minor to claim for. If you are outside your home then chances are you are on a property or in a public space owned or operated by a third party who could be liable for any injury you suffer there. Even injuries caused by tripping or slipping on the pavement could be grounds for a compensation claim. Local councils are responsible for maintaining most roads and pavements, if they have allowed the pavements to fall into disrepair or have failed to clear ice on certain pavements and roads when it is required, then they could be liable for compensation. Businesses too could be liable for leaving out tripping hazards such as wires or unmarked wet patches of floor if you or another customer has fallen and hurt themselves. You can read more details about slip, trip and fall claims here.
Other accidents such as contracting food poisoning off a restaurant or takeaway or injuring yourself while using public transport could also be grounds for making a no win no fee personal injury claim.
No win no fee claims can be made for financial losses you have suffered as well as the claims for personal or criminal injury that have been mentioned above. If you have taken a financial loss as a result of being mis-sold a financial product then you could be entitled to compensation. Financial mis-selling is not just grounds for compensation, it is also a crime. Financial mis-selling is any instance in which a customer of a bank or a financial advisor is sold a financial product, such as PPI or a pension scheme, in a way that is misleading or does not allow the customer to make an informed and well-considered decision. For example if a certain product has been pitched without informing the customer of alternative options, if the customer has not been informed of potential risks or if the customer has felt pressured into buying a certain product or has not been asked to provide details such as their health and habits such as smoking or drinking.
If you have found yourself in a dispute with your landlord over a tenancy deposit then our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Wigan can help you make a claim against them. The law requires that a landlord be able and willing to return a tenants deposit at the end of the tenancy agreement. In order to ensure that they can do so, the landlord must place the deposit in a government approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme and send you the relevant information in writing within thirty days confirming that they have done so. As well as being liable for not protecting or returning your deposit your landlord could also face a fine. You can find out more information on tenant deposit dispute advice you can visit the website of Shelter, the housing charity.
You could seek compensation for injuries or health problems that have arisen in your own home if you have been renting a property from a landlord or a housing association and the property has been allowed to fall into such a state of disrepair that it impacts on your health. Examples of this could be damp or mould causing respiratory problems, a lack of heating in cold weather causing cold-related illnesses or exposed wiring inflicting electric shocks. Landlords, housing associations and local councils are required by law to ensure that the properties they rent out are fit for habitation; issues such as those listed are not permitted. If you call our team for advice they can put you in touch with housing disrepair experts from our panel of no win no fee solicitors who can cover the Wigan area with ease. For details on how the housing disrepair claim process works you can read up on it on the justice.gov website.
