Bradford-On-Avon Personal Injury Solicitors Guide – No Win No Fee Claims
By Stephen Hudson. Last Updated 22nd September 2021. On this page, you will find a guide to choosing the most suitable team of Bradford on Avon personal injury solicitors to process an injury claim.
Within this guide, you will find information about the process of making a claim, and also an overview of some of the most common types of claims people make. As long as you are within the three-year personal injury claim time limit, this guide should be of value to you. Under the Limitation Act 1980, it is usually a requirement to start a personal injury claim within three years of your accident (if you decide you want to pursue a case).

Why You Should Make A Personal Injury Claim With Our Expert Team
The better your legal team is at processing injury claims, the better your chance of winning your claim. All solicitors are not the same. Some specialise in a specific area of the law, such as criminal cases. Others provide legal services such as conveyancing and certifying legal documents. And some, like Legal Expert, specialise in helping people to claim compensation for injuries, in a simple, financially risk-free way. Choosing the right legal firm is a critical stage in ensuring you have the best chance of winning your claim.
Are Reviews Of Solicitors Covering the Bradford-On-Avon Area Useful?
Finding a good solicitor to process your accident claim, is not easy. This is especially true if you have never used a solicitor before, you have no prior experience to help you make an informed decision. If you can find a community-driven review website, that carries publicly published reviews of Bradford-on-Avon personal injury solicitors, this can be a good place to start your search. When you are checking over and comparing reviews of legal firms, keep in mind the following:
- Make sure the reviews you are reading are up to date. Reviews more than a year or two old may no longer be very relevant.
- Make sure the reviews you are reading pertain to a claim that is similar to your own. There is little point in reading a review of a criminal case when you are looking to make an injury claim for example.
- Read the reviewers words, and take note of any pros and cons they list for the solicitor. Also, read any comments that have been left about the review. Do they support the reviewer’s opinions or refute them?
- Be sure to compare the fee structure used by each solicitor. Specifically, whether they offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), and if they do, what percentage of the compensation settlement will they charge as their fees?
Does it matter if my solicitor is based elsewhere?
You might think that due to the handiness of their location, it is a good idea to use a local solicitor to make your claim. You can do this if you wish, but there is no compelling reason other than the location to do so. A much better idea is to ignore location entirely and find the solicitor that is most likely to be successful in processing your claim. Location really is not a factor in this decision.
Some legal teams, such as us here at Legal Expert, offer a nationwide service, to people all across the UK. We specialise in accident claims and have proven effective in winning compensation across a wide range of claims.
If necessary, we can also organise a visit to our local medical expert to review your injuries.
Personal Injury Claim Our Solicitors Conduct
As a team of solicitors, we are able to assist residents of Bradford in a full range of accident claims. From a simple slip on a wet floor in a restaurant, through to complex clinical negligent cases, that resulted in death. Of course, there are some types of claims we process much more often than others, and we have explained some of these in the sections below.
Claim For An Industrial Diseases
Some jobs, such as a miner or farmer, expose a worker to known health hazards. Then there are hazards that have only become known in recent years. For example, the danger of breathing in asbestos dust. Some work environments put the workforce at an increased risk of certain medical conditions such as cancer. For example, workers employed in a nuclear power station. If your employer has exposed you to a health hazard, resulting in an illness or medical condition, then Legal Expert could help you claim compensation.
Medical Negligence Suits
Legal Expert is able to act as your medical negligence lawyers if you have come to harm at the hands of a medical professional. Every doctor, nurse, specialist, consultant and member of the care staff, owe a duty of care towards patients. When they fail in this duty of care in some way, and it directly leads to a patient coming to harm, clinical negligence would have occurred. Legal Expert has the experience needed to take on large organisations such as the NHS, and win you the compensation you are eligible for.
General Bradford On Avon Workplace Accident And Injury Claims
If you have been injured in an accident at work, and your employer is to blame, Legal Expert should be able to process a claim for you. Every company in the UK is required to comply with all Health & Safety regulations pertaining to their industry. This includes legislation designed to ensure that employees have a safe environment to work in. If your employer fails in their compliance, leading to you being injured, it should be possible to make a compensation claim.
Falls, Slips, And Trips
Slips, trips and falls are very common reasons that people make a personal injury claim in the UK. They can happen anywhere, at any time, for example:
- Slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket toilet.
- Tripping of a frayed carpet in a restaurant.
- Falling down due to stepping on a damaged paving slab or curbstone in the street.
No matter how your slip, trip or fall accident happened in Bradford, we should be able to help you claim for your injuries.
Serious And Severe Injuries
Some of the highest amounts of compensation we see paid here at Legal Expert, are the damages awarded to the victims of a severe injury. These kinds of injuries will have a permanent effect on the quality of life of the victim, and potentially stop them from being able to work. Injuries such as loss of cognitive function or motor control due to brain damage, loss of an arm or leg through amputation or paralysis, and severe psychological damage such as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Road Accidents Including Fatal Road Collisions
The most frequent of all accidents that Legal Expert processes a claim for, are road traffic accidents. These range in severity from a mild case of whiplash caused by a rear shunt, through to a fatal road collision resulting in one or more deaths. Legal Expert can help you to claim for road accidents that were not your fault, and in some cases, we can also assist with non-fault claims.
