This means that if you’ve been injured in Pembroke Dock no win no fee* compensation is important to guard against anything going wrong.
Do you need Pembroke Dock no win no fee* compensation?
When people asses their injuries they generally only look at whether or not they were to blame. If not then they tend to assume that they have a right to claim compensation. In other words their attitude is pretty much along the lines of ‘if it’s not my fault it must be someone else’s fault.’ It’s perfectly understandable why someone might have this thought, but it’s not always the full picture.
It is, for example, possible for something to go wrong which was not someone else’s fault. In the building trade for instance there are rules surrounding what’s known as no fault claims.
This is when someone passing by a building site is injured by an accident which is beyond the contractor’s control. This could be something to do with subsidence or slippage – in other words the kind of thing that all the precautions in the world can’t guard against one hundred percent.
There are though ways around it. After a landmark court case, the precedent was established that although there was no blame to be attributed the organisation which brought the contractor onto the site could be held responsible.
That’s because by doing this they created an inevitable risk that something like this could happen. They would therefore have to pay compensation.
Always look into your rights
No fault cases also happen quite a lot in road traffic accidents. Sometimes drivers assume that there is no blame to be attached. However, it’s still worth speaking to a lawyer as they might be in a good position to give you more information. It might turn out that you are entitled to make a claim after all.
