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 there is no financial risk to you.
Killin is a village at the western head of Loch Tay in Stirling. Its population was last recorded as 666 people.
What sort of claims occur in Killin?
Because it is a relatively small village, for lawyers dealing on the basis of no win no fee, Killin 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
- Medical negligence
- Product liability including food poisoning
How do you know whether you can claim?
To claim compensation, on the basis of no win no fee, Killin 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 via the Accident Advice Helpline website.
How long do you have to claim?
For most types of claim you have three years from your injury in which to begin claims proceedings. However, it takes time to prepare a claim so if you want to make a compensation claim, on the basis of no win no fee, Killin residents and visitors, you should take action as soon as possible.
How much compensation can you claim?
The amount of compensation that you can claim depends on 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 have lost and any other out of pocket expenses.
