However, the information below should help to answer any questions you have about making claims for compensation in Bedfordshire.
How Will My No Win No Fee Claim Work?
No win no fee claims are usually begun with the signing of a document known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. These documents set out the amount your solicitor would be entitled to as a ‘success fee’, which would be a percentage of your compensation. Your solicitor would not be entitled to take any more than 25% of the settlement you are awarded, however, as there is a government cap in place that prevents this.
If your solicitor fails to gain you a settlement, despite you having a claim that is valid, you would not be required to settle this ‘success fee’.
One benefit that may stand out from this type of claim is that there is no requirement for a payment upfront to fund your claim. This could mean that you may be able to begin a claim right away, and you could also benefit from less financial risk to your own funds. Now we’ve explained about how no win no fee claims work, let’s take a further look at the claims that could be handled by our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Bedfordshire.

If you were in a Bedfordshire traffic accident and you suffered injuries because of it, then you would not be alone in having been injured on a UK road. According to the statistics released for the government, over 160, 000 people were injured in road incidents within the year. Over 133,000 were only slight injuries such as whiplash, sprains etc, there were 1784 fatalities and over 25,000 serious injuries.
Whether you have obtained mild, moderate or severe injuries in an accident that was not your fault, you could look into whether you would be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries. You could also make claims for the monetary costs associated with a car accident in Bedfordshire, such as loss of earnings if you had to take time off sick, or medical/travel costs directly associated with the accident and your injuries. It does not matter what type of road traffic accident you were involved in, in Bedfordshire. What matters is that someone else caused the accident, and you were injured as a result of that accident. You could even claim as a pedestrian or a cyclist if another road user has caused you injury.
How Long Would I Have To Claim?
Most personal injury claims have a limitation period for claiming. The standard personal injury claims time limit for most road accident claims would be 3 years from the date it occurred. However, there may be a few exceptions to this. If you lacked the physical or mental capacity to claim at the time, or if you were a child when you had the accident and no one claimed for you, your claim might be an exception to the usual time limits. If you would like to know more about this or be provided with a no win no fee solicitor from our panel for this type of claim, please don’t hesitate to call us.

What Is Disrepair?
If something is broken in your property that your landlord is responsible for, such as the heating system, sanitaryware, windows, doors or flooring, and they have not repaired it, this could be classed as disrepair. Likewise, if there are water leaks, or if there is damp and mould, this too could be classed as disrepair. Disrepair could cause a few different problems, including:
- Damage to a tenant’s belongings
- Destruction of a tenant’s belongings
- Higher energy bills than usual
If your house is in disrepair and it has resulted in you suffering from any of the examples mentioned above then you could potentially be able to claim for compensation.
