Kilmarnock Personal Injury Solicitors – No Win No Fee Claims

Trust nationwide personal injury solicitor’s firm Legal Expert, to provide you with an excellent personal injury solicitor to handle your compensation claim. Whilst we are not located in this area, we can still help you as easily as if we were around the corner.
Under what circumstances can you make a compensation claim for injuries or an illness that you have suffered? You are legally entitled to make a personal injury claim if you suffer an accident which was caused by negligence on the party of a third party and if as a result, you become injured or ill. For example, if you slip on a wet floor in a shop that had not been mopped up and had a sign posted, and break your wrist as a result, you could be entitled to claim compensation from the shop’s management for your injuries.
If you have legitimate grounds to claim compensation, Legal Expert can provide you with an excellent, no win no fee, personal injury solicitor to represent your claim. Call us today for your free legal consultation to discuss your circumstances and one of our informed advisors will be able to let you know if you have the right to make personal injury claim right away. Your advisor will also be able to estimate how much compensation a personal injury case like yours is usually awarded (though your settlement may differ from this) and can provide you with an excellent compensation lawyer to start working on your claim right away.
Legal Expert operates nationwide, so if you live elsewhere in Great Britain, you can still provide you with a solicitor who can represent you in your no win no fee personal injury claim. Call us today on 0800 073 8804, to see if you are entitled to claim.
What Criteria Do I Need To Meet In Order To Make A Claim?
We have created this guide for specifically people living in Kilmarnock who wish to claim personal injury compensation. If you live elsewhere in Great Britain, Legal Expert can also help you make a claim, so check out our online guides to personal injury claims today. We will now look at circumstances in which people are eligible to make personal injury claims.
To be able to make a successful claim, your personal injury solicitor must be able to prove the following:
- In personal injury cases the person making the claim is called the Claimant. The person or party that they are claiming compensation from are called the Defendant. Your solicitor must be able to prove that you (the Claimant) were owed a “duty of care” by the Defendant. A duty of care means that they were legally obliged to provide you with a safe and hygienic environment, or behave in a manner that took regarded for your personal health and safety. Examples of duty of care could be an employer’s duty of care towards employees, shop keeper’s duty of care towards customers using their premises or drivers duty of care towards other road users. The duty of care that certain parties have towards others are codified in laws such as The Occupiers Liability Act of 1957, and the Health And Safety At Work Act of 1974.
- Your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that the Defendant acted negligently towards you, causing you to have an accident. For example ignoring a health and safety hazard is breaching the duty of care that you are owed.
- Thirdly, your solicitor will have to prove that the accident that you suffered was the cause of your illness or injury. After providing you with a personal injury lawyer, Legal Expert will arrange for you to have a medical assessment locally. Your personal injury lawyer will use this and other evidence to support your personal injury case.
If you believe that your personal injury case fits the set of circumstances above, please call Legal Expert right away to see if you qualify to claim compensation.
How Can A Personal Injury Solicitor Help You Make A Successful Claim?
Without a properly qualified personal injury solicitor it may be very difficult or may not be possible for you to claim compensation for your injuries. What’s more, without a personal injury lawyer representing your claim who properly understands the law and how much your injuries are worth in compensation, you could be pressured into accepting a sum that is too low and be short changed out of what you are actually owed. Not all firms will allow you to use a no win no fee personal injury solicitor to make your claim, and some may not be as experienced as others.
If you make a personal injury claim with Legal Expert, you will have the option to make a no win no fee claim. You can also rest assured that you will be provided with the best personal injury lawyer to handle your claim, one with plenty of experience handling cases that are comparable to yours. Below is some more information on what to look out for when using a personal injury solicitor.
Reading Personal Injury Solicitor Reviews
Before using a personal injury solicitor, it pays to read online personal injury solicitor reviews, to gain some insight into the strengths of that firm. You can see whether or not previous clients were satisfied with the quality of service they received, the outcome of their personal injury case and whether or not they would recommend the solicitor’s firm to others. The reviews may also explain whether or not the compensation lawyers will operate on a no win no fee basis, as this can be the less stressful option for many clients.
Alternatively call Legal Expert today, and an advisor can recommend the best personal injury lawyer based on your individual circumstances.

In this day and age, due to digital communications technology, it’s as easy to work with a solicitor based in your hometown, as it is to use a solicitor based anywhere else in Great Britain.

Common Types Of Personal Injury Claims Legal Expert Conduct In Scotland
We are now going to look at some of the personal injury claims that we frequently conduct in more detail. If you have been injured in an accident described below, or any other accident that was not your fault, cal Legal Expert today to see if you are entitled to claim compensation.
Work Related Sickness And Industrial Disease Claims
As we have already stated, the Health And Safety Act of 1974 states that employers are responsible for making sure that workplaces are safe and hygienic environments for employees and other people who use the premises such as contractors. If you have suffered an industrial disease or work related illness caused by negligence on the part of your employer (such as asbestos exposure, asthma, or siderosis) you could be entitled to claim tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.
Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim compensation for an industrial disease. Learn more about work related illness claims in this guide.
Medical Negligence Or Clinical Negligence Claims
Medical negligence occurs when a medical practitioner such as a doctor or nurse delivers substandard care towards their patient through a negligent action or inaction. For example, misdiagnosing a patient or administering the wrong treatment. As we have said, medical practitioners have a legal duty of care towards their patients. If the medical negligence results in the patient becoming ill, injured or worsens a condition they already suffer from, the practitioner or the medical institution they work for could be held legally liable for their injuries.
If you have experienced medical negligence in Kilmarnock or elsewhere, you could be entitled to claim tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds in clinical negligence compensation. Call Legal Expert today, to see if we can help you make a clinical negligence compensation claim.
Accidents And Injuries In The Workplace
Employers have a legal duty of care towards their employees, therefore they have to protect employees from health and safety risks. If an employer neglects their duty of care towards their employee, who suffers an accident as a result, causing them to become injured or ill, the employer could be held liable for their injuries and have to pay the employee compensation or their workplace accident. For example, if your employer doesn’t fix a broken floorboard which has been reported to them and then you trip over the floorboard and break your ankle, you may be able to make a personal injury claim against your employer.
Whether you live in Kilmarnock or elsewhere, trust Legal Expert to provide you with an excellent no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your workplace accident claim.
Slip, Trip Or Fall Claims
Slip, trip and fall accident claims, are some of the most common personal injury cases that our solicitors handle on a daily basis. Unfortunately they can be easily caused by a moment of carelessness, be it the council neglecting to fix a broken paving slab, a restaurant failing to mop up a spilled drink or a department store not fixing a broken handrail. If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
Call Legal Expert today, to enquire about making a no win no fee claim for your injuries.
Lawyers For Serious Injuries
Legal Experts provide lawyers for clients who have suffered a serious injury or illness. This could be an accident that had life changing results, such as a car accident which caused you to suffer a permanent disability, or a doctor misdiagnosing your symptoms of cancer, which delayed you getting the treatment you needed. As you can imagine people who have suffered a serious injury or illness caused by negligence on the part of a third party, are often awarded higher amounts of compensation. This is to compensate them for their “pain, suffering and loss of amenity” as well as paying for any ongoing medical treatment they may now need.
If you have suffered a serious injury because of an accident that was not your fault, call Legal Expert today to be provided with a lawyer for a serious injury.
