Conditional Fee Agreements Explained
Making a no win no fee claim with a personal injury lawyer or financial compensation lawyer could be financial beneficial for those looking to make a compensation claim without paying any upfront costs. Instead of paying money upfront to your allocated lawyer, you would wait until the claim had paid out and use a pre-agreed percentage of these for your legal fees. The percentage is capped at 25% but could be even lower depending on your legal representative.
All the minor details of this agreement will be detailed within the no win no fee agreement. Also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), this is a document that will be signed between you and your lawyer which lays out the terms of your agreement as to what would happen if your case reached a settlement and what would happen if it didn’t. Your lawyer might advise you to take out an insurance policy in case of an unexpected loss, but this could vary between cases.

An accident claim could be make for harm suffered on the road. Whether you were injured while riding a motorbike, a pushbike, or you were in a car, van, bus, coach, taxi, or even an articulated lorry, if another road user caused an accident and you were injured, you could claim compensation. This is even true if the person that caused the accident did not have the required insurance or they fled from the scene of the accident, as a solicitor could help you claim with the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).
But, how often do accidents happen on UK roads that cause injury? Let us look at the statistics published by the government.
According to a report by the Department for Transport, there were 160,597 casualties of all severities reported for UK road traffic accidents in 2018. However, you do not have to suffer a severe casualty to make a claim for compensation.
