No Win No Fee Claims Guide
When you make a compensation claim, you may do so because you have been physically or mentally injured, suffered an illness or because you have been financially harmed. You may have experienced a combination of all these things. The aim of claiming compensation is to try and compensate you for financial losses as well as pain and suffering. If you’ve experienced financial loss in any way, you may be a little withheld about spending more money upfront on a lawyer’s services. This is where you could benefit from a no win no fee solicitor. They could bring their expertise to your case without demanding funds upfront, taking their payment as a percentage of the compensation settlement instead.
This is all laid out in an agreement that you and your lawyer would sign before they take on your case. This agreement is called a ‘No Win No Fee Agreement’, or a ‘Conditional Fee Agreement’ (CFA). The document will explain the conditions that must be met for the lawyer to be paid out of your compensation, including the percentage amount of your settlement that would be taken to cover your solicitor’s legal fees. This, by law, is capped at just 25 percent, but some lawyers may request even less than this, so you would benefit from the majority of your settlement once the lawyer’s fees had been taken out.
Your personal injury lawyer, or financial compensation lawyer, might well ask you to go ahead with an insurance policy to cover the unlikely event that your claim was not successful, but this would be discussed with you beforehand.
Now you have this information on what constitutes a no win no fee claim, let us look into the types of claims that could be made by a lawyer working on this type of payment structure.

A personal injury solicitor could assist compensation claims for workplace accidents and work-related conditions. Let’s look at each of these in a little more detail.
A workplace accident could happen due to an employer failing to act on risks within the workplace or related to the tasks that you perform for work. Whether an accident occurred because scaffolding was not checked to be safe before workers were allowed on it, and it collapsed, or a trip hazard was left out in an office and someone tripped over it, an injury caused by lack of care taken by your employer with regards to health and safety could be reasonable grounds to make a claim.
A work-related illness or condition could also be something that your employer is deemed to be responsible for. If there were foreseeable risks that meant you could contract a condition such as dermatitis, industrial deafness, or asbestosis, and your employer did nothing to try and reduce the risks, you could claim if you went on to develop the condition.
Your personal injury solicitor would have to prove that your employer failed in their legal duty to protect your health and safety at work and you were harmed because of this for a claim to be successful. If you are wondering ‘How long do I have to claim?’ then the time limit could be three years from the date of the accident or for the diagnosis in most cases, although there could be exceptions.
Whether you’ve suffered a long flight delay and are seeking compensation, or you were injured or fell ill while on holiday abroad, you could make a compensation claim with no win no fee solicitors covering Chesterfield. However, the personal injury claims time limit could differ between claims. This is because, in different circumstances, you could be claiming under different legislation.
For example, if you booked your holiday as a package, the Package Travel Regulations could be what you claim under providing the negligence took place on an entity provided by the tour operator. Whereas if it is a privately booked international flight, the Montreal Convention could be claimed under. Most domestic flights could be covered by UK law and foreign hotel claims could be claimed for under foreign law in some cases.
This large variety claims could be confusing for those that may be unfamiliar with the law, but experts from our panel could provide holiday compensation advice about who could be liable for your claim, as well as handling your claim for you. We could provide you with a no win no fee solicitor for your claim if you choose to get in touch with us.
