Areas of Law / Personal Injury

A year ago I tripped on an uneven pavement and fractured my wrists, which was serious since I am self-employed and couldn’t work for six months. I engaged a solicitor on a “no-win, no-fee” basis, who told me I had a good case. The solicitor now says the pavement was only raised an inch, and it has to be more uneven than that for a successful claim. What can I do now?

It’s inevitable that a solicitor engaged on a “no-win, no fee” basis will be slightly more choosy about which cases he or she is prepared to take on. You now have the option of trying to find another solicitor who will accept your case on this basis, or of funding it yourself. If your lost earnings were substantial it may be worth pursuing, although it would seem to be a borderline case.
