    No win no fee in Billingham

    If you’ve been hurt in an accident that was not your fault but feel as though your actions may have in some way, shape or form made something of a contribution to the severity of the injuries you suffered, you might be surprised to learn that you may still be able to use the services of a top-class no win no fee in Billingham solicitor to launch a personal injury claim.

    However, the amount of compensation you might be entitled to could be reduced in these circumstances, depending on exactly how much your actions contributed to how badly you were hurt.

    If you’re in any doubt as to whether you might have a personal injury case that needs answering, you should call a personal injury law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.

    The company will, in the first instance, be able to offer advice as to whether your behaviour might have affected your chances of securing pay-out.

    Contributory negligence and no win no fee in Billingham solicitors

    Contributory negligence is a legal tern applied to a scenario where a personal injury claimant was in some way responsible for the severity of their injuries. If contributory negligence can be proved by a defendant, a court will adjust any compensation a no win no fee in Billingham solicitor secured on its client’s behalf accordingly.

    For example, say you were in a motorcycle accident that resulted in you sustaining head injuries that was entirely the fault of another driver. While the accident itself may well have been somebody else’s fault, if you were not wearing a helmet, as you’re required to by law, it would be highly likely that a court would rule that you had contributed to the severity of your injuries by not doing so.

    Another example would be if you were operating heavy machinery at work without wearing the correct safety equipment. If the machine was to malfunction and injure you, any pay-out you were entitled to could be cut if it could be proved that wearing said safety gear would have in some way prevented you from being injured or made the injuries you did suffer less severe.

    Talk to the pros

    As mentioned above, as a layperson, it will be almost impossible for you to establish to what degree a court might rule that you may have contributed to the severity of your injuries.

    As such, you’re going to need to talk to a no win no fee in Billingham solicitor such as Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly where you stand.

    Fortunately, you can call Accident Advice Helpline for free advice at any time of the day or night.
