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.
This means that you do not have to worry about whether you can afford to claim compensation.
Abridge is a village in Essex with a population of around 1,500 people.
What sort of claims occur in Abridge?
Because it is a relatively small village, for lawyers dealing on the basis of no-win, no-fee*, Abridge will not generate as many compensation claims with which to deal as larger or busier regions. However, there can still be claims for:
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Workplace accidents/diseases;
- Medical negligence;
- Product liability; and
- Food poisoning.
How do you know whether you can claim?
To be eligible to claim compensation with the help of no win no fee* Abridge lawyers, you 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 on the Accident Advice Helpline website.
How long do you have to claim?
For most types of claim, you have a period of three years from the date of an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings. However, it takes time to prepare a case, so if you want to make a compensation claim with the help of no win no fee* Abridge lawyers, you should take action as soon as possible.
How much compensation can you 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 any out-of-pocket expenses that you have incurred.
