No-win, no-fee* is the system that replaced legal aid. It means that if you claim compensation and do not win your case, you do not have to pay any legal fees.
Abington is a village in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
What sort of claims occur in Abington?
Because it is a relatively small village, for lawyers dealing on the basis of no win no fee* in Abington, the place will not generate as many compensation claims to deal with as larger or busier regions. However, this does not mean that it cannot produce any claims and each year there could be claims for:
- slips, trips and falls
- road traffic accidents
- workplace accidents and occupational diseases
How do I know whether I can claim?
To be eligible to claim compensation on the basis of no win no fee* in Abington, residents and visitors must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test at Accident Advice Helpline website.
How long do you have to claim?
For most types of claim you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings. However, it takes time to prepare a case and so if you want to make a compensation claim on the basis of no win no fee* in Abington, you should take action as soon as possible.
How much compensation can I claim?
The amount of compensation that you can claim depends on a number of factors including the nature and severity of your injury, and whether you will be permanently affected by it.
You can also claim for any wages that you may have lost as a result of your injury and other out of pocket expenses.
