Conditional Fee Agreement Compensation Claims
A no win no fee solicitor sets their terms out in a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). The agreement, once signed by you and your lawyer, sets out the conditions that must be met for the solicitor to receive payment.
With a no win no fee claim, you would not have to pay your lawyer upfront. Instead a percentage would usually be detailed, which would be payable on the successful completion of your claim. Once your lawyer had successfully secured compensation for you, and a payout had been made, your solicitor’s fees would be deducted, with the rest being for your benefit.
You may worry about whether your claim is going to be successful and might wonder what happens to the lawyer’s fees if your claim does not result in a payout. For such instances, your solicitor could well advise you to take an insurance policy which would cover against this, but they would talk you through the details of this once you’d discussed your claim with them. It might be a relief to know the success fee percentage is capped at just 25 percent.
Now we’ve explained how this works, why not check below to see what kinds of claims could be made with no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton in the sections below.

Casualties could happen on the road for a number of reasons. Road accident statistics from the Department of Transport revealed that in 2018, 160,597 casualties of all severities happened on UK roads. If an accident you were in was someone else’s fault, however, you could look into whether you could claim road traffic accident compensation. Some examples of situations that could lead to a claim could include:
- A driver ran you over while speeding and fled the scene – no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton could help you claim via the MIB
- You were the victim of a rear-end shunt, suffering whiplash as a driver was not paying due care and attention to the road
- You were on a motorcycle and a driver ran into you while dangerously overtaking
- You were knocked off your cycle at a junction as a driver did not look properly before moving off
- You suffered life-changing injuries in a head-on crash
- You lost a loved one in a road traffic accident that was someone else’s fault
These are just a few examples of the type of claims a solicitor could assist with.
When it comes to making a no win no fee car accident claim, the onus would be on your allocated solicitor to prove that someone else was at fault and their behaviour caused your injuries. You would also need to claim within the relevant time limit for your specific situation. In most cases, this would be three years from the accident date, but in some cases, there are exceptions to the limit.
Did you have to suffer more invasive treatment because of a late diagnosis? Were you injured during surgery because your surgeon was negligent? Did an A&E doctor fail to spot a broken bone, leading to you suffering more than you would if they’d noticed? If so, you could have cause to claim medical compensation for the negligence you’ve suffered. When it comes to healthcare staff, both NHS and private, they have a duty to protect your health as much as possible. If they are negligent and you suffer harm because of this negligence, then you could claim compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
If you’re wondering how to claim for negligent medical care, whether that is because of midwife negligence, doctor negligence, dental negligence or another form of negligence, you could simply give us a call.
We would talk through the process with you and assess whether we think your claim could lead to compensation. We would then offer you the services of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton medical negligence claims.
Did you develop a work-related condition, or did you suffer an accident at work that led to injury? If so, and your employer was deemed to be at fault, you could make a claim for injury at work compensation. Let’s look at both types of claim in more detail.
There are a number of work-related illnesses and conditions you could suffer from, including:
- Industrial deafness
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome
- And more
But how do you know whether your condition could lead to a claim? Your employer should have considered the risk of you developing these conditions or illnesses and taken steps to reduce that risk, if it was foreseeable. If they didn’t, and you went on to develop the illness or condition, then you could use no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton to make a claim for compensation.
The other type of injury claim that could be made against an employer would be those that occur because of an accident at work. Your employer is required to look after the safety and health of their staff, and measure they could take, if appropriate, to do so could include:
- Ensuring the building/site is free from hazards as much as possible (removing trip hazards, ensuring safety signage is visible where required, providing safe walking areas in loading yards etc)
- Ensuring that they train you in the safe method of performing work tasks
- Providing you with protective equipment
- Ensuring equipment is regularly checked/serviced/replaced when broken
- And more…
Wherever you chose to take your holiday, you could make a claim for injury on holiday under a number of different laws and regulations. A personal injury lawyer could make a case on your behalf under:
- The Montreal Convention
- The Package Travel Regulations
- UK law
- Foreign law
You may be under the impression that you could have to use a lawyer based in the country you were injured in, but you could use legal experts that are based in the UK for this. They could help you with accidents that happen:
- On the aeroplane
- On a train
- In the airport
- At the hotel
- On an excursion
- And more…
Whether you have suffered a holiday illness because food you were served was not prepared or stored hygienically, or you fell because of wobbly steps while disembarking an aircraft, if someone else was to blame, you could claim compensation for financial losses suffered as a result of your injuries, as well as claiming for the pain of your injuries.
In the year preceding November of 2018, there were 545 violent and sexual offences reported in Atherton, according to the police website. Whether you were injured in one of these reported events or you suffered historic sexual abuse many years ago, no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton could assist you with claims made to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). You could claim as:
- A witness that was traumatised by seeing a violent crime
- A person who was injured while trying to stop crime
- A victim of crime
Your crime must have been reported to the police within a reasonable length of time. But what if you didn’t report sexual abuse at the time, and it was years later that you were able to bring yourself to speak about it? Consider the section below…
Time Limits For Claiming Historic Abuse
The claims time limit for most CICA claims is 2 years – usually from the date of the crime. Exceptions could be given in cases of sexual abuse that was historical as the victim may have not had the capacity to talk about their experiences before, so claims of this type could be heard years later in some cases.
Other claims could be made for accidents that aren’t covered in the sections above if someone else is liable for your injuries. These claims could include:
- Food allergy compensation claims
- Public place accident claims
- Food poisoning compensation claims
- Beauty treatment injury claims
- Hairdresser injury claims
- Slip, trip or fall claims
- Faulty product injury claims
- And more…
Whatever your accident or injury, if you have suffered it because of someone else’s fault, you could look at claiming compensation with a personal injury solicitor.
As well as making personal injury claims for compensation, you could also make claims for compensation with financial mis selling solicitors if you have experienced financial losses from being mis sold a pension, annuity or other financial product.
But how would you know whether you have cause to claim? Here are a few clues that you may have been mis sold a product.
- Your financial advisor sold you an unsuitable product
- They did not tell you of the risks involved
- They did not tell you of the charges involved
- They put pressure on you to buy a product
- They did not give you an alternative option
Did you know that your landlord is supposed to protect your tenancy deposit? If they do not do so or don’t tell you where it is held, you could make an unprotected rental deposit claim. If you’re wondering how much compensation you could claim, then you may be pleasantly surprised to know that you could receive somewhere between one and three times the rental deposit paid.

Have you experienced housing disrepair that has caused you to suffer health problems, injury, or has cost you money financially in a rented property? It is your landlord’s responsibility to act on disrepair, and if they have not done so, despite you following the correct protocol for reporting the disrepair, you could make housing disrepair claims if you have suffered financially, physically or mentally.
The financial costs of disrepair could include damage and/or destruction of some of your belongings, or higher utility/energy bills.
Physically, you could suffer an injury because of a broken window, for example, or suffer illness because of damp and/or mould.
If you think you could have a valid claim for housing disrepair, you could contact us to be provided with one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Atherton to handle your claim.
