Examining No Win No Fee Claims
If you contact a no win no fee solicitor to begin a claim, they’ll want to check a few things before they agree to take on your claim. They usually like you to show them that:
- You were made to suffer;
- By somebody who owed you a duty of care;
- And they were negligent in some way.
When the solicitor decides your case is strong enough, and you’re happy to proceed, you’ll both sign a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is the document which explains that, unless the solicitor wins your claim, there are no solicitor’s fees to pay. That means no up-front costs as well.
To cover the solicitor’s fees if compensation is awarded, the CFA will explain that there’s a success fee to pay. This is deducted from your compensation automatically so you don’t have to find the funds to pay them yourself
Another factor that you’ll need to take into account is the time limit for compensation claims. The personal injury claims time limit is 3-years. Other claims have different time limits so we’ll try to explain those as we go through this guide but if you’re unsure, what time limit applies to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ayr Crime Victim Compensation Claim
You might not be aware that if you’re the victim of a violent crime, the government runs a scheme that could enable you to be compensated. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) allows claims for physical and psychological injuries and some financial losses caused by the criminal injuries that you have sustained.
A criminal injury compensation claim is different from a personal injury claim which means some rules for claiming are different. For instance, the crime has to have been reported to police, there’s a 2-year time limit and the amount of compensation awarded is generally different. However, it may be worth noting that there are exceptions to the time limit, therefore we suggest that you call us using the information provided within this guide and one of our legal advisors will provide you with advice.
More Personal Injury Claims
In the next few sections of this guide, we’re going to look at other types of claim our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Ayr could help you with. Before we do, here are a final few personal injury claims you might want to make:
- Accidents involving children – a personal injury lawyer could help a parent represent a child to make a claim before they turn 18.
- Slips, trips and falls – You might be able to claim for a fall if you have been injured and if it was caused by a wet floor, a trailing cable, a broken handrail, a raised paving slab or poor lighting.
- Accidents in public places – If you suffer an injury caused by an accident in a public place, you might be able to claim against the local authority or company responsible for that place if their negligence caused the accident to happen.
With any of these claims, we recommend you find out who the responsible party was, report the accident to them, photograph the scene, seek medical treatment and ask witnesses for their details. All of these steps could provide evidence which your solicitor can use in support of your claim.
