What Is A No Win No Fee Agreement?
When you make a claim for compensation, it could be easier to go through the process with an experienced legal professional on your side. They could not only assist with building a case against the liable party, but they could also offer guidance on whether a compensation offer could be a good offer or whether you could fight for more of a settlement.
You might think that retaining the services of a lawyer would be expensive, you could be relieved to know that there wouldn’t be an upfront payment required to use the services of a no win no fee solicitor. This is because they would work with you under a no win no fee agreement.
But What Is A No Win No Fee Agreement?
This is a document that details your payment terms with your lawyer. With no win no fee agreements, you’ll agree on a percentage of the settlement amount that will be paid to your solicitor on successful completion of your claim. Your lawyer would then take on your case and help fight for a settlement for you. Once that settlement comes through, you would benefit from the majority of it (at least 75%, as your lawyer is not able to take more than 25% in fees).
This could be a convenient way in which to make a compensation claim, as it means you would be able to take action right away, without having to pay your lawyer before your compensation comes through. Now we’ve explained how no win no fee compensation claims work, let’s look at what types of claims could be made with no win no fee solicitors covering Aldershot.

According to 2018’s figures released by the government, there were 160,597 casualties of all severities reported on UK roads. While this is said to be the lowest figure on record, it does show that accidents can – and do – happen on the road.
If you’ve been in a car accident in Aldershot, or any other road accident in Aldershot that was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation with no win no fee solicitors covering Aldershot. Examples of the types of claim you could make could include:

Clinical negligence claims could be quite complex, which is why having a personal injury solicitor on your side could be beneficial. The onus would be on you and your personal injury lawyer to prove that had the negligence not happened, you would be in better health, or you would not have suffered as much as you have, if at all. What could make medical negligence claims even more complex is if there are other pre-existing conditions involved, but no win no fee solicitors handling Aldershot medical negligence claims would have the experience to know how to build a strong argument for compensation.
You could make a claim for compensation with a no win no fee solicitor if you have been harmed by:
- Late diagnosis
- Surgical negligence
- Care home negligence
- Dental negligence
- Midwife negligence
- Hospital negligence
- Cancer care negligence
- And more…
When it comes to the personal injury claims time limit for medical negligence claims, this could differ depending on when the negligence was discovered. If it was discovered immediately, then you may have 3 years from the day of the initial negligent act, but if it was discovered later on, then you could have 3 years from the day it was discovered. There could be exceptions to this, however, so do call our team and we’d be happy to advise.
One of the most commonly known reasons to claim against an employer is if you have had an accident at work that caused injury and it could have been prevented had your employer acted differently. Examples of this could include:
- Your employer didn’t provide you with a mask when working with chemicals, and you inhaled fumes, making you ill
- Your employer didn’t train you in manual handling and you suffered a back injury because you lifted something incorrectly
- Your employer did not fit safety guards on machinery and you became trapped in the machine and suffered injuries as a result
These are just a few examples. Whatever type of accident you have had at work, if you feel you may have a claim, you could contact solicitors experienced in personal injury. We could help connect you with such a solicitor.
You might already have been aware that you could claim workplace accident compensation if you were injured as a result of a one-off accident, but did you know you could claim for a work-related condition and/or illness? If your employer did not take steps to protect you from risks of developing conditions such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, COPD, dermatitis, industrial deafness, RSI and more, then you could use the services of no win no fee solicitors covering Aldershot to help you make a compensation claim.
This is because your employer has a duty of care to protect your health and safety while you work for them. If they fail in this duty, you could make a claim for compensation against them. Your employer would likely have insurance to cover the cost of your claim, and you may even be doing a good thing for other employees of the company, as if your employer tightens up their health and safety provision, this could mean another person may not suffer in the way you have.
No win no fee accident solicitors could also help with accidents that happen outside of Aldershot. In fact, they could handle claims for accidents that happen in other countries. Holiday personal injury claims don’t have to be handled by foreign solicitors, and in some cases, you would be claiming under UK law, as part of the Package Travel Regulations.
Domestic flights could be claimed for under UK law in most cases, while some international flights could come under the Montreal Convention. Whether you’ve suffered an accident in an airport, a hotel, on a flight or elsewhere on your holiday abroad, our expert advisors could assess your situation and potentially launch a claim on your behalf. Types of claims you could make might include:
Injuries On Flights – being struck by luggage on take-off, hot drinks spilt on you, injuries caused by broken seats and more.
Injuries At The Airport – slips and falls, food poisoning at the airport restaurant and more.
Injuries At The Hotel – swimming pool accidents, waterslide accidents, holiday sickness, trips and falls and more.
Injuries While In Transit – coach crashes, falls on a coach, injuries from broken seating and more
Essentially, if you’ve been injured or fallen ill on holiday and it was not your fault, then why not look into whether you could make a claim with our panel of solicitors.
Have you been a victim of criminal activity? Did it leave you injured in some way, whether mentally or physically? If so, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) could pay out on a compensation claim that occurred in Aldershot because of criminal activity. The crime needs to be reported to the police, but you could claim not only as a target of an assault, but also if you obtained injuries through attempting to stop a crime, or experience trauma from witnessing a violent crime. The usual time limit for claiming is 2 years from the incident for criminal injury claims.
But What If It Was Historical Abuse?
Should you have been the victim of sexual abuse as a child, you may not have been able to speak about this for some time. You may be under the impression that this would not allow you to make claims as the crime may not have been reported to the police at the time, and you may assume you are outside of the time limit for claiming. However, exceptions could be made in cases such as this, so why not call us to see if our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Aldershot could help you make a claim.
There are other incidents that could lead to a personal injury claim, outside of those we’ve already mentioned. It might be worth keeping in mind that if you are injured and someone could be held liable for your injuries, you could make a claim. This could include situations such as:
- Being injured in a supermarket by falling goods from shelves that have not been safely stacked
- Being injured in a public park because of badly maintained equipment
- Being injured by a faulty product
- Being injured by tripping on a broken pavement
If you think you could have cause to make a claim, then why not call us to see if we could provide a no win no fee solicitor from our panel to help you.
While the FCA stipulates that financial selling should be done in a fair and transparent way, mis selling has happened in recent years, and some financial mis selling scandals have seen thousands of pounds paid out in compensation. If you feel that you may have been mis sold a financial product and may have lost out financially due to this, then financial mis selling solicitors from our panel could help you make a compensation claim.
Indications that you might have been mis sold could include:
- Being put under some pressure to choose a product
- Being misinformed about charges and fees
- Not being given all the relevant information about the product
- Not being offered any alternative products
- Being sold a financial product that is unsuitable for you
If your no win no fee solicitor can prove you were mis sold a financial product, then they could help fight for compensation on your behalf.
When you pay a rental deposit to your landlord, they should protect it in an approved scheme and let you know which scheme this is within 30 days of payment. This should be any form of Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) that is Government-approved. If they don’t, or they fail to return your deposit within the required time limit fo 10 days without a valid reason, then no win no fee solicitors covering Aldershot claims could help you claim as much as three times your initial rental deposit in compensation.
Some of these valid reasons may include:
- Missed rental payments
- Damage to property
For more information regarding rental deposit compensation claims, contact our friendly team of advisors today.
Another type of claim that our panel could assist with is housing disrepair claims. These claims could be made for a number of reasons. If you have informed your landlord that there is something broken/damaged/not working within your property and they fail to repair it, and you are harmed, you could look into whether you could claim compensation. Types of disrepair could include:
- Heating issues
- Broken sanitation equipment
- Broken windows and doors
- Leaking pipes
- Damp and mould
- And more…
Compensation could be paid out because:
- You were injured by the disrepair
