Am I Eligible To Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
No win no fee solicitors use contracts called Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) to allow more people to claim without worrying about the financial impact of doing so. The CFA explicitly states that:
- You won’t pay solicitor’s fees unless you receive compensation.
- The success fee you will pay should the case be won.
Success fees are limited to 25% of your compensation and are deducted from your final settlement amount before it is sent to you. This means there’s no need to find the funds to pay the solicitor yourself.
As you can see though, a solicitor won’t get paid if they lose the case. Therefore, they have to choose which claims they can help with. Usually, you’ll need to show the following statements are true before your claim is taken on:
- You suffered physically, psychologically or financially;
- Because of someone else’s negligence;
- And that person owed you a duty of care.
Furthermore, you’ll need to make your claim on time. There’s a personal injury claims time limit of 3-years (from the date of your accident or diagnosis) and package holiday claims generally have the same limit. Criminal injury claims have 2-year limits and claims for financial mis-selling claims can vary. Therefore, we advise that you check with one of our advisors as soon as possible to make sure you have time to claim.

When you are injured or become ill following substandard treatment by any type of medical professional, you might be able to make a medical negligence claim using a no win no fee solicitor.
That’s because all medical professionals have a duty of care to try and keep you safe while treating you. This means following the correct procedures, working hygienically and using the right equipment for the job.
Here are some examples of negligence that might lead to a claim:
- Suffering which is caused by a misdiagnosis.
- Pain caused in any form of treatment because of an anaesthetic error.
- Unwanted side effects because you were given the wrong medication.
- Injuries caused by surgical negligence leading to avoidable injuries.
- Negligence in care home leading to broken bones, fractures, bruising or bed sores.
- Avoidable injuries sustained during childbirth.
Many people worry about claiming compensation for an injury at work. They think that their employer might discipline them or even sack them for doing so. In fact, if you’re making an honest claim, your employer can’t treat you any differently. If they did, you could consider an unfair dismissal claim against them.
Therefore, you might be able to claim compensation for an accident at work that resulted in you suffering unneccessarily if it was caused by:
- A faulty piece of machinery.
- Missing or insufficient protective equipment.
- An unsafe working environment.
- Inadequate training.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Cambridgeshire could help you claim so please get in touch for a free assessment of your claim.
It is unpleasant to be injured whilst on holiday. Not only can it ruin your trip, it can leave you out of pocket and also cause problems when you return home. Therefore, it is only right to consider suing for compensation.
There’s a couple of ways this can be done. First of all, if you booked through a package holiday company, and the accident happened while using a service they provided, you could sue them directly. You’ll usually get 3-years to make this sort of claim.
However, if you booked each part of your holiday directly, a claim against the responsible party could still happen, but, depending on the country the accident happened in, you might have less time to make your claim.
We understand that making a claim for an accident that occurred while on holiday can be complex in nature that is why our panel of no win no fee solicitors are well versed in both UK and International law.
The government operates a scheme known as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). It is a scheme that allows claimants to make a claim for injuries sustained in violent crimes (physical or psychological).
Making a CICA claim isn’t the same as a personal injury claim and there are some different rules for doing so:
- First of all, the crime has to have been reported to the police.
- Also, there’s a 2-year claim time limit. In some circumstances, this can be lifted but in general, the shorter period applies.
- Finally, if you make a successful CICA claim where you’ve claimed for multiple injuries, you’ll receive 100% compensation for the most severe injury, 30% for the second and 15% for the third.
To discuss making an assault compensation claim via CICA using one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Cambridgeshire, police get in touch with us today.
Before we move on to other types of claims, here are some more which a personal injury lawyer could help you make:
- Claiming for a slip, trip or fall could be possible if it was caused by negligence. An example might be if you tripped over cables that were trailed across your work area with no warning signs.
- You could also make a claim for accidents that happen in public places like car parks, shopping centres or even on footpaths. Claiming against the local authority or responsible party could be possible if they could’ve prevented the accident.
- Finally, if you become a ‘litigation friend’, you could represent your child in a claim for compensation at any point before their 18th After that, they have 3-years to make their own claim.
When the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) introduced rules regarding the sales of some products, it was done so to protect consumers from financial mis-selling. Now, if you’re buying a pension, mortgage, investment or annuity, you could be entitled to compensation if the advisor didn’t follow the rules and, consequently, you lost out financially as a result.
Some of the FCA rules include:
- The client’s health and lifestyle must be taken in account before selecting products.
- Advisors must inform the client of any ongoing fees.
- The terms and conditions must be clearly explained.
- No pressure should be put on a client to choose.
- Finally, a good range of products must be provided so that the client can make an informed decision.
If you suspect you’ve lost money as a result of financial mis-selling, please speak with one of our claims advisors who will assess your options.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Cambridgeshire could help you make a tenancy deposit compensation claim if your landlord has breached the rules. Tenancy Deposit Schemes (or TDS), were introduced in 2007. The idea is that they help prevent tenants from losing their deposit (or part of their deposit) unfairly.
If your landlord fails to adhere to the following rules, you could be eligible to claim:
- Any deposit paid to a landlord must be placed into a TDS within 30 days.
- They must inform the tenant, within 30 days and in writing, which TDS they’ve used.
- The deposit mustn’t be removed from the scheme before the end of a lease or tenancy agreement.
If you’re injured or made ill due to a defect in your rented property, you might be able to make a housing disrepair claim against your landlord. Obviously, they’d need to have been aware of the problem but, if they were notified of the disrepair and they did not fix it when they were supposed to, then you could claim.
A claim could be made against a council, private landlord or housing association as a result of undue suffering for:
- Mould and damp.
- Leaking roofs or pipes.
- Broken hot water or heating systems.
- Blocked drains.
- Electrical or fire hazards.
- Structural defects.
Also, you could claim compensation for disrepair if it led to your personal items being damaged.

Our Panel Of Doctors Covering Cambridgeshire
First of all, before looking at local services that you might need to contact, one other thing you’ll need if you’re making a personal injury claim is a medical assessment by an independent doctor.

Finally, a report will be prepared for your personal injury solicitor which will be used to help calculate the amount of compensation you’ll be entitled to.
Because the report is so important to your solicitor, they will insist that a medical assessment is carried out for all personal injury claims.
