How Will My Conditional Fee Agreement Work?
Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) are a form of contract under which a solicitor, such as a solicitor covering Burton on Trent, may provide their services to a claimant.
This type of agreement sets out the conditions under which services are provided and what work the solicitor will undertake for the claimant. They will also set out the conditions and terms of payment including circumstances in which the solicitor will be paid – upon successful completion of the claim, and when they will not be. It should state the amount the solicitor will be paid (expressed as a percentage of the final settlement). This amount is limited to 25% of your final total settlement.

If you have been injured in a Burton car accident or other form of accident on the road, we could help you make a claim for a road traffic accident (RTA). Tens of thousands of people are injured in accidents on the roads each year. For example, in 2018 there was a total of 160,597 casualties of all severities in reported RTAs, according to an annual report by the Department For Transport.
Our panel of solicitors could help you make a claim for a road traffic accident which has caused injuries such as whiplash and neck injuries, fractures and breaks, head injuries, back and spine injuries and many others.
If the accident was either wholly or partially the fault of another person, you could be able to claim compensation from them.
Clinical negligence claims deal with cases where a patient has in some way been harmed due to malpractice or negligence on the part of a medical professional. As a result, the patient could be harmed by sustaining a new injury, acquiring an illness, or by a condition which they already had being made worse.
Making a clinical malpractice claim could help you to recover expenses such as lost income, medical and care costs or other related expenses. It could also provide compensation for the harm caused to you as well.
This type of claim may be more complex to make and your case will need to satisfy three basic necessities. It must show that you were under the care of a provider or practitioner – thus meaning they owed you a duty of care. It must then show that they were negligent in meeting this obligation. Finally, it must show that you were harmed as a result of this and that the harm could have been avoided.
You can contact us today to discuss your case.
Your employer has a responsibility (also called a duty of care) to make sure that you are safe in the workplace. If they have not done so and if you have been injured as a result of their failure to keep you safe, you could be able to make an accident at work claim. For example, this could be for injuries suffered by you not having the right protective equipment.
There are many different circumstances in which people are injured in the workplace. You can see key statistics, figures and findings at the Health and Safety Executive statistics pages. In addition this, you may also be able to seek compensation for industrial illness and diseases which have developed over time, such as vibration white finger, industrial deafness or COPD.
In order to make a successful personal injury claim, you will need to be able to show that your employer was negligent in protecting your safety and/or health and that this negligence lead to the harm you suffered. Going ahead and making a personal injury claim may not just secure you compensation, but also it could highlight the circumstances which lead to you being injured and these circumstances being addressed by an employer. In doing so, further such accidents may be prevented.
As well as helping you to claim for accidents which have happened in the UK, our panel of personal injury solicitors could also help you to claim compensation for an accident on holiday. You could claim against package holiday provider for harm suffered on an entity provided by the tour operator, airlines for delayed flights, illnesses or injuries on holiday.
There are various pieces of legislation and international agreements protecting travellers on holiday or flights. For example, the Package Travel Regulations provide a way to claim against package holiday companies in the UK for some accidents on holiday. EU legislation provides the ability to claim compensation for delayed flights. The Montreal Convention, however, also provides a route to claim compensation which happened on an international flight.
It should noted that if a claim needs to be made outside the UK, such as against a provider in Spain, the time limit for making a claim and the amount which could be claimed may differ to claims made in the UK.
Circumstances in which you may be able to claim compensation for an accident on holiday may include:
- Delayed flights, air accidents and accidents on a plane.
- Injuries in a hotel in the UK or abroad.
- Accidents on pre-booked transfers.
- Illness acquired from swimming pools or spa facilities.
- Accidents in and around swimming pools.
There are of course other circumstances in which you could be injured abroad and have grounds to claim compensation. Speak to a member of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Burton today.

Sexual Abuse And Historical Sexual Abuse Claims
The standard criminal injury claims time limit is 2 years from when the crime took place. This is shorter than the more standard 3 year personal injury claims time limit. However, there are exceptions to this 2 year period for cases of sexual abuse.
Sexual abuse may not have been reported immediatly and could have taken place years or even decades prior to it being reported or compensation being sought. In these instances, claimants may have much longer to claim compensation.
If you have been affected by a criminal injury or abuse, please speak to an advisor today to be connected with a legal representative.
Aside from the types of accidents which we have discussed above, there are many other forms of accidents which could be grounds for compensation.
For example, children (those under the age of 18) could be involved in accidents whilst at nursery, school, or on school trips. Compensation could be claimed in the name of the child by a parent or guardian up until the child’s 18th birthday. Once 18, they then have until their 21st birthday to claim themselves.
A trip to the beauty salon or hair dresser could end in injury if the hairdresser / salon technician does not use chemical products safely, such as using patch tests for hair dyes or botching the application of botox.
Even walking down the street, through a shopping centre, car park, or your local park could end in injury if defective floorings (indoors or outside) have not been repaired.
In any of these circumstances, the party responsible legally owes you a duty of care. If they failed to meet this duty, a personal injury solicitor covering Burton could help you to claim compensation. To find out if you are eligible to claim for your accident or injury, please get in contact with our team.
If a financial service provider, such as your bank or investment advisor, either sold you a product which was not suitable for you, provided you with deliberately mis-leading advice or pressured you into buying a policy or product which was not right for you, you could claim compensation.
Mis selling of a financial service or product could happen in several ways. You may have been given advice which was unsuitable for your needs, not have been properly informed of the risks attached to a product or service, or not provided with all of the information necessary to make an informed choice.
Common examples of financial products which may have been mis sold to people could include PPI, pensions, annuities or mortgages.
If you have been affected by financial mis selling, contact us to be connected with a no win no fee solicitor covering Burton from our panel of experts.
There are procedures which a landlord should follow when paid a security deposit by a tenant in order to protect it correctly. There are also specific rules about when any amounts from a deposit could be withheld by a landlord. You can see the rules for tenancy deposits at this guide from Shelter. If your landlord has broken these rules, you may be able to claim compensation from them.
Landlords have up to 30 days from receipt of a deposit to place it into an approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), such as those listed here. They also have up to 30 days in which to provide you with written information about which scheme the deposit has been placed with. The deposit should be protected until the end of your tenancy and returned to you unless your landlord has specific reason to withhold all or part of it – such as if you have not paid rent or have caused damage to the property.
Our team could connect you with a no win no fee solicitor who will be able to help you. The solicitor handling your case may need evidence, such as the details of your tenancy agreement, proof that you paid the deposit and that you kept up with paying your rent. They may also need copies of any correspondence between you and the landlord as well as evidence that you searched the tenancy deposit schemes for details of your deposit.
For more information, please contact our team today.
If poor housing conditions or disrepair have impacted your health or have caused damage to your personal belongings after you had reported the issue to the person/association responsible, you may be able to claim compensation from your landlord.
You could claim compensation from a landlord (acting in the public, private or housing association sectors) if they failed to carry out necessary repairs in a reasonable time. You must have reported the problem to your landlord and they should have been given reasonable time to have the repairs made. You could also claim compensation if the property is in such a state of disrepair that you are unable to live in it.
Your solicitor may use a housing disrepair compensation calculator to estimate what you are owed. These types of compensation may include:
- Damage to belongings and/or personal property.
- Expenses such as alternative accommodation or increased bills.
- Compensation for the disruption to your life.
- The harmful effects on your health such as illnesses or injuries.
Prior to claims going to court (if necessary) there are certain steps which should be followed. These may be found in this guide.
