How Does My Relationship With My No Win No Fee Solicitor In Aberdeen Work?
A No Win No Fee agreement lets you continue with a compensation claim on the condition that if the claim is unsuccessful, you won’t owe your legal team any money. Put simply, it is a way for you to take legal steps necessary to claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered with the assistance of one of our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Aberdeen, without any financial risk weighing over your head. In short, by continuing with a No Win No Fee claim, Claim Justice will only get paid if we can help you win your case. We carry the risk of your claim being unsuccessful, and will pay for the upfront costs of running your case. Our highly skilled solicitors are happy to offer No Win No Fee agreements to clients seeking rightful compensation for personal injuries, because they are extremely confident in their abilities and in their success rates. Of course this also means that we won’t take on a personal injury claim if we don’t think we will win the case. It would not make sense for us to do otherwise, and this demonstrates our honesty to you.
A No Win No Fee agreement is a stress-free, financially-savvy way to claim compensation for personal injury. Once you have provided the Claim Justice team with the details of your compensation claim, as well as the go-ahead to continue with your claim on a No Win No Fee basis, your work is basically done. You can then sit back, relax, and let Claim Justice do all the hard work for you!
What Will My No Win No Fee Solicitor In Aberdeen Charge Me If My Case Is Successful?
The good news is that you will never pay us any legal fees in advance. A No Win No Fee agreement means that we only get paid if your claim is successful.
We work on an average success fee of 25% of the total compensation that you receive. If we help you to win your claim, the party that loses (or their insurance company) will cover the total compensation amount, and our solicitors will be paid for their legal services as a percentage of the financial compensation awarded. Any success fee will be explained to you by the person dealing with your claim and confirmed in writing early on in the claim.
Will My No Win No Fee Solicitor In Aberdeen Charge Me If My Case Is Not Successful?
No. No Win No Fee means just that- you will not need to pay us a thing if your claim is unsuccessful. Claim Justice carries the risk of your No Win No Fee claim being unsuccessful. If your compensation claim is unsuccessful, we will not charge you any legal fees for the work done by our skilled No Win No Fee Solicitors in Aberdeen.
To ensure that you are fully protected and have peace of mind over your financial risks, our team can help you to secure ‘After the Event’ insurance. This insurance covers you in the event that you are unsuccessful with your claim, and in case the court rules that you need to pay a part of your opponent’s legal costs during the case.

Your No Win No Fee Solicitor In Aberdeen Will Help You To Formulate Your Claim In Order To Get You The Maximum Compensation You Deserve
The first important point that your No Win No Fee Solicitor in Aberdeen will confirm is the date of the injury or accident.

Secondly, our team will confirm that someone else was legally responsible for your injury or illness.

Once we have ensured this, one of our highly skilled personal injury lawyers will help you to claim the maximum amount of compensation possible from them.

In simple terms, a road accident (often referred to as a car accident) is any type of accident that involves a car. Road accidents can happen for a variety of reasons and can lead to a variety of accident claims. A road accident happens when two cars collide with one another, or where a car collides with a motorbike or bicycle, and also include incidents where a pedestrian is injured by a car.
Being in any form of car accident is a traumatic experience for everyone involved.

Our No Win No Fee Solicitors In Aberdeen Are Experienced In Accident At Work Claims
Generally, a work accident is an unintended but foreseeable incident that happens in the workplace, because of certain conditions of the site or premises, because of the way in which a job is being done, or because of how certain equipment and machinery is being utilised. As a result of this, an accident ensues and someone (usually an employee) is harmed. A work accident claim is then the process whereby an employee, who was the victim of the accident at work, institutes a legal claim for financial compensation against the person who is legally responsible for their injuries.
From a legal perspective, an employer is ultimately responsible for any harm that an employer may suffer at their place of work and as a result of someone else’s negligence. This is the case whether the incident was a result of a failure to act, or a positive act. At the end of the day your employer is responsible for safety at work. Whether the accident was caused by the negligence of another employee or even a joke played by a co-worker, your employer will likely be legally responsible for the accident. If you are worried about the potential financial consequences of your work accident claim for your employer, or about the status of your employment if you institute a claim, you need not stress any longer. Your employer is legally required to have employer’s liability insurance to pay for any compensation claim made against them.
Types Of Accidents At Work That Our No Win No Fee Solicitors In Aberdeen Handle
There are many ways that an employee can suffer injuries as a result of an accident at work. Our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Aberdeen encounter many accident at work claims each year, including:
The statistics show that the construction and building industry is one of the most dangerous sectors to work in. The majority of work accident claims in Aberdeen are based on different injuries suffered by employees in these types of industries. Work accidents on building sites can range from sprained ankles as a result of slip and trips, cuts and sprains due to heavy loads, broken and bruised extremities because of defective or dangerous machinery, bone fractures and spinal cord injury due to falls from a height, and loss of limb because of hazardous apparatus.
Sadly, the construction industry is also one of the most common sectors for fatal accidents at work. The main cause of fatal injuries in Great Britain each year is a result of workers falling from a height on construction sites. Other fatal accidents include workers being trapped by something that has collapsed or overturned, and workers being struck by some form of moving vehicle or equipment.
Slip, Trip Or Fall Accidents
In general, slip and fall accidents in the workplace are caused by a slippery or greasy substance on the floor surface, for example spillage of cleaning products, water or ice, food or sticky drinks. Trip accidents at work can be caused by any item being left lying around on the floor, by uneven floor surfaces, by obstacles in the path (such as potholes), cables on the ground, or by concealed and uneven steps. Causes and contributing factors leading to falling injuries could be anything from loose floor coverings, to losing footing on the stairs, to poor health and safety measures, to faulty equipment; or simply a worker rushing to get somewhere. The chance of someone slipping, tripping or falling at work is also increased when the lighting in the place of work is insufficient or where the obstructions have not been brought to the attention of employees through any warning signs or demarcation.
Manual Handling And Carrying Accidents
A job that entails manual handling is any task where someone transfers, lifts or supports a load. Manual handling injuries can be caused by either light and heavy loads. The employees that are most likely to be at risk include care workers, manufacturing staff, agricultural workers and construction workers. It should be noted however, that any employee in any sort of workplace is at risk of a manual handling or carrying injury.
Many of the work accident compensation claims that Claim Justice manage relate to injuries caused by manual handling accidents. Lifting and carrying accidents that our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Aberdeen deal with on a daily basis are caused by:
- Employees manually handling excessive weight;
- employers failing to train or refresh the training of employees;
- Insufficient or irregular risk assessments being carried out by employers;
- employers failing to provide suitable PPE or safety equipment to employees
- Failure of employers to provide a safe system of work or sufficient assistance and sufficient oversight for all individuals in the workplace
Claim Justice has successfully resolved many claims of this nature, resulting in lawful financial compensation for many satisfied Claim Justice clients.
Falling from a great height at your place of work can have extremely bad results. Significant or even life-changing injuries can result from a fall from any height, and the fall can have a huge impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. The physical injuries that you suffer from a falling accident at work don’t just affect your health and personal life- your injuries could also have a financial impact on you and your family especially if you’ve had to adjust or change your job due to the injuries.
Accidents Involving Moving Objects
Anyone can be injured through harmful contact by a hazardous moving object, for example where something falls or flies through the air and strikes them. This is a common way for people to suffer injury at work, and one of the largest categories of reported injuries after manual handling accidents and slipping accidents.
Where equipment is used in the workplace, employers have a responsibility to check this equipment regularly and ensure it is in good and proper working order. Equipment includes machinery, appliances, apparatus, tools or installations in the workplace. In some cases it can even extend to equipment and items that employees provide for their own personal use within the workplace, or even equipment that is used away from the work premises. If you are an employee that has been exposed to faulty equipment that has caused you physical harm, you will likely be entitled to make a work accident claim against your employer. Speak to Claim Justice today to find out how to make your claim.
Our No Win No Fee Solicitors In Aberdeen Are Experienced In Public Place Personal Injury Claims
Claim Justice has many years of experience with claims for injuries suffered in accidents that have happened in public places, including theme parks, shopping malls, restaurants and bars, parks, schools, theatres, carnivals and music concerts.
If you have suffered an incident in a public place, and you believe this incident was a result of negligence by the individual or body in charge of that space, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Councils, shop owners, businesses and public bodies all have a duty to take reasonable steps to prevent members of the public from being injured on the premises under their control.
If your accident happened while you were on a council owned property, such as a public walkway, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority if the accident was due to their negligence. When instituting a compensation claim against a local authority or government body for failure to maintain a road or sidewalk, the claimant will need to prove that this body was negligent in its duty to the public by failing to keep the pavement safe. This involves proving that, based on the circumstances of the case, it was not reasonable for the local council to let he public space fall into a state where it could result in a person being injured.
Claim Justice will guide you through your entire personal injury claim process, and can help you get the compensation you deserve for the injuries you suffered in a public place. Contact Claim Justice today for a free, no obligations discussion about your public place injury claim. A member of the Claim Justice team will be able to estimate the value and merits of your compensation claim once they have been through the details of the incident with you. The sooner you get started on your case, the sooner one of our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Aberdeen can get you the justice you deserve.
