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.
As a result, if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you do not have to worry about whether you can afford to claim compensation.
Milton Abbas is a village in Dorset with a population of around 750 people.
The villagers recreate their historic country fair every two years and this attracts thousands of visitors
What Sort of Claims Occur in Milton Abbas?
Because it is a relatively small village, for lawyers dealing on the basis of no win no fee*, Milton Abbas will not generate as many compensation claims to deal with as larger or busier regions. However, the country fair can result in claims for slips, trips and falls and road traffic accidents caused because visitors to the area are unfamiliar with the local road layout.
How Do You Know Whether You Can Claim?
To be eligible to claim compensation on the basis of no win no fee*, Milton Abbas 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.
