Long story short,

 

Mother fell at 3 counties show ground on an uneven, unmetalled car park, and broke her arm in the fall, the top of her humerus of all places.

 

She is self employed as a mobile hairdresser, so has been unable to drive or do any hairdressing for the last 8 weeks, and has only just begun physio.

 

She is wanting to sue the ground, and is wanting to use a NWNF parasite that you see touting for business on the goggle box.

 

Is this the best route for her to follow?

 

I've told her to look in her home insurance policy, and car insurance to see if there is anything in the small print that might actually fund a private solicitor, rather than a NWNF one which I despise...

 

Any thoughts or ideas?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

A "private" solicitor might be willing to take on the case under a conditional fee agreement, you'll have to ask around. They should also advise on ATE insurance to cover their fees if your mother lost the case. However I believe the premium for the ATE insurance and the solicitor's success fee is no longer recoverable from the other side if you win.

Many thanks SV, spoke to her today and she is more angry than anything, angry that they (3 counties showground) haven't been in contact to see if she is alright.

 

I can understand her anger and frustration, even though they were aware of her injury, as they called the ambulance from their own first aid facility, they have washed their hands it so to speak.

 

So I have told her to wait out on anything rash, such as these NWNF vultures and she agrees partly due to the fact that have been quite agressive over the phone, ''a classic parasite mum, only interested in money'' so safe to say she is going to leave them well alone for the time being, and allow me to rattle a few cages first, as all she really wanted was a quick call/letter to ask if she was ok?

 

So I'm going to try and see what I can't do first, after all it is only 8 weeks since she fell and broke her arm, so still feeling a little raw..

Many local and national solicitor's firms have PI practices that will take on cases on a NWNF basis. You don't necessarily have to go through a PI claims factory. Many of the businesses you see touting on google etc. don't actually run the case themselves but are referral businesses that will refer cases to firms in exchange for a commission.

Why all the hatred and what is wrong with NWNF? It's a great way for people who can't afford to pay for a solicitor to get access to justice.

 

Just search on Google for a personal injury solicitor.

Cheers SP, will let her know.

 

The trouble with NWNF firms Gany is that they are like vultures cicrling around the high street in the most deprived areas touting for business to line their pockets,

I couldn't go anywhere near me without some spotty faced clown following me up the road, ''We do a NWNF Sir, we can claim thousands for your accident sir'' All because I was on crutches, even better when they approached a friend of mine who had lost his leg in Iraq, they couldn't pack up quick enough..

 

I simply despise them for the way they conduct themselves, worse than a double glazing con man...

You're coming across as a bit ignorant and prejudiced if I'm honest.

 

If you had checked then you'll probably find that, as SP said, they will not be solicitors but Claims Management Companies. However as referral fees are now illegal this practice should start reducing and these dodgy companies that give the profession a bad name will cease to exist.

 

I don't agree with CMCs chasing people down the street but see nothing wrong with legitimate law firms advertising their legal services or people being encouraged to enforce their legal rights in tort.

 

Many hundreds of respectable law firms, from niche high street practices to multi national companies offer a NWNF service as it is an excellent form of funding usually very expensive litigation.

 

Just because a NWNF service of funding a compensation claim is offered should make no difference.
