There are certain similarities between the caseload of lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ in Tong cases (from a city like Bradford) and lawyers working for no win no fee* on country claims. They can both be handled by lawyers at the leading law firm Accident Advice Helpline for a start. They both feature claims made by people who have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault. Finally, both teams of lawyers work very hard to secure the highest levels of compensation that they can for their clients. However, this is where the similarities end. Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ in Tong claims deal with a unique set of accidents that happen in a city environment. They are experts at these because they do not have to work on other countryside claims such as agricultural accidents. Here are some cases that are typical in the workload of lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Tong cases.
Typical cases handled lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Tong claims – road traffic accidents
Driving around Tong is not like driving around the country! City roads have a higher concentration of junctions and roundabouts, they have multiple lanes which require regular lane changes and there is a larger volume of traffic. Other drivers will be pulling out in front of you or pulling over causing you drive around them.
City traffic is unique. It consists of a large number of cyclists, cars, heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and buses. Buses, by their very nature, have to stop often and continually manoeuvre in and out of traffic. This mix of vehicles produces a unique profile of road traffic accidents.
City accidents are mainly made up of accidents that happened in queues of traffic, cyclists being knocked off their bikes and accidents at junctions. The classic ‘rear end shunt’ in a line of traffic is very typical of city accidents.

Working in the city is not the same as working in the country – city workers are more likely to be office based, to work in shops and restaurants or to work on the increasing number of construction sites are appearing in cities.
Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Tong claims also often deal with slips, trips or falls. Accidents like this can be caused by floor areas of offices not being kept clear of clutter. Construction accidents are common – building work involves heavy plant vehicles, machinery and working at heights. It requires dangerous equipment like scaffolding, ladders and mobile lifting platforms. Sadly, extremely serious injuries can result from falls from a height.
