Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** am a barrister and will assist you with this issue today.
Please be aware that this is an e-mail service rather than a live chat. Sometimes there will be some delay between responses but I will try to reply as soon as possible.
I'm afraid we can't take the case on for you as JustAnswer isn't a law form it is just a Q&A facility.
I can tell you that with the accident being in 2018 you aren't out of time to make a claim, you generally have 3 years to bring such claims from the date of the accident.
You can find a new solicitor here: http://https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk. Just look for a personal injury solicitor. Many will work on a "no win no fee" basis.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions.
Yes don't worry, that is just an automated message, ignore it.
In terms of their claims criteria, I presume you mean their criteria for accepting cases on a no win no fee basis? I'm afraid there is no central database for such matters. Each firm of solicitors will have their own criteria which is usually private to them.
What type of claim is it? Road traffic, medical negligence etc.
Ok so that is occupier's liability. These are a little more risky/ tricky which is why you might be struggling to get a solicitor to act for you.
I have dealt with some of these types of claims with a firm called Norrie Waite and Slater, they are based in Sheffield but that doesn't necessarily matter. You could contact them. https://www.norriewaite.co.uk/.
Try specifically googling for occupiers liability no win no fee: https://www.google.com/search?q=no+win+no+fee+occupiers+liability&oq=no+win+no+fee+occupiers+liability&aqs=chrome..69i57j33.8527j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
No it's personal injury but there are lots of areas within personal injury. This is occupiers liability/ general negligence.
I don't know why they dropped your case, you'd have to ask them for details. It may be that new firms are worried about why you were dropped if you are telling them you had previous solicitors. Common reasons why a firm might "drop" a client is if they have lied about the circumstances or if they aren't replying to correspondence.
If the original firm made a mistake and this has prejudiced your claim in some way you can look to bring a claim against the solicitors for professional negligence.
Without more information about why they ended the realtionship with you.
Sorry I meant to say without more information about why they ended the relationship with you I can't really assist a lot further.
Yes it's worth a try. Like I say if they have prejudiced your claim you may be able to sue the solicitors.
