Tewkesbury is a town near the far northern border of Gloucestershire. It is at a point where the rivers Severn and Avon meet, and around 10,700 people were confirmed to live in the area in 2011. The town is popular among visitors for its architecture among other things, and thankfully few people – tourists and residents alike – ever have cause to learn about no-win, no-fee in Tewkesbury.
Of course, we know there are situations where accidents can potentially occur anywhere. Typical examples might include road accidents, those involving pedestrians, slips, trips and falls and even rare accidents in the workplace. These are just as rare in this part of Gloucestershire as they are elsewhere.
What does no-win, no-fee in Tewkesbury mean?
No doubt you’ve heard the term ‘no-win, no-fee’ before. The idea behind it is to give people a chance to claim compensation without fearing they will lose money if their claim fails. Typically, a personal injury lawyer can assess a claim and have a good idea of its chances of success prior to taking it on. However, you can never be certain any claim will succeed.
The good news is the claimant would never be liable for any solicitors’ costs if the claim failed. This gives the individual confidence and the ability to press ahead with a claim without worrying about the potential consequences. It also means some people get compensation when they may not have risked trying to in the past.
Could you make a claim on these terms?
It’s possible you could if you have been injured in the last three years, or made ill through negligence. For example, it’s possible to claim for food poisoning symptoms and effects if you fell ill after eating a takeaway or food from a restaurant or buffet. It’s also possible to claim if you were working in an environment where protective equipment should have been provided to prevent you breathing in harmful substances, and nothing was given to you.
