What Is No Win No Fee?
Many people have heard of no win no fee solicitors but we’re often asked how they operate. First of all, before taking on a claim, the solicitor needs to know that there’s a chance the case could lead to compensation. They’ll often ask you to show them that you’re claiming because:
- You were made to suffer an injury or financial loss;
- By somebody else’s negligence;
- And that you were owed a duty of care by the defendant.
If the solicitor agrees your case is strong enough and takes it on, they’ll provide you with a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). The CFA is your contract which protects you by clearly stating you won’t have to pay any solicitor’s fees unless compensation is awarded.
When compensation is awarded, you’ll pay a success fee. This will be detailed in your CFA, but it is limited to 25% of your settlement figure.
Other than checking you have a valid claim, the solicitor will also need to check your claim is being made within the relevant time limit. While the personal injury claims time limit is 3-years, other claim time limits vary. When you call to discuss your claim, we’ll advise you of the amount of time you have to make your claim.

City Of London Car Crash And Traffic Accident Claims
A road traffic collision can lead to many different injuries which could result in a compensation claim. These include head, back and neck injuries (as well as whiplash), broken bones, cuts and lacerations, soft tissue damage and bruising.
You could claim for any of these if the road traffic accident in the City of London was caused by another road user’s negligence. If that’s the case, we recommend you take the following steps to secure evidence to support your claim.
- Photograph the scene of the accident.
- Look for witnesses and get their details.
- Visit an accident and emergency in the City of London (medical records can be used as evidence).
- See if there is any dashcam footage that shows what happens.
City Of London Medical Negligence Claims
It could be possible to make a medical negligence claim using our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering the City of London if you’ve received negligent treatment from a medical professional that has caused an injury or illness.
There are many forms of medical negligence which might lead to a claim including:
- Dental, medical or cosmetic surgery negligence causing avoidable injuries.
- A misdiagnosis causing suffering due to delayed treatment.
- Medication errors by a pharmacist causing suffering.
- Anaesthetic errors resulting in pain during treatment.
- Super bugs in hospitals causing illnesses such as pneumonia.
- Care home negligence causing a patient to become injured.
- Childbirth injuries which could’ve been avoided.
A medical negligence claim against a London based medical professional could be made against the NHS or a private healthcare employee and could include negligence during cosmetic or medical treatments.
I Got Injured At Work, Am I Eligible To Claim Compensation?
If you’ve suffered an injury following a workplace accident in the City of London, you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries. That could be the case if your employer breached their duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Employers need to take steps to reduce risks in the workplace where possible. If they fail to do so and their failure causes an accident to happen, you could be entitled to compensation.
Something worth bearing in mind is the that you can’t be disciplined, sacked or punished for making an honest claim. If you were, you could certainly consider making an unfair dismissal claim, which our panel of solicitors could also help with on a no win no fee basis.
I Got Injured On Holiday, Am I Eligible To Claim Compensation?
If you suffer an injury on holiday, it might be possible to use our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering the City of London. First of all, you’ll need to work out who to claim against. If your injury happened while using a service provided by a UK package holiday company, you could claim against them. Otherwise, the claim could be made against the person or company responsible for your accident.
Some examples of holiday accident claims include:
- Food poisoning claims.
- Hotel accidents.
- Hire car collisions.
- Excursion-based accidents.
- Cruise ship claims.
- Airport accidents.
Claim Compensation For A Violent Crime
You could use a personal injury solicitor if you have been unfortunate enough to be injured as a result of a violent crime. In usual circumstances, the claim won’t be against the criminal though. Instead, you could make a claim using the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.
CICA is a government scheme which could compensate you for physical or psychological injuries caused by violence. To be eligible to claim you’ll need to have reported the crime to the police. Furthermore, there’s a 2-year time limit for claims but this might be extended in some circumstances.
Other No Win No Fee Injury And Accident Claims
Here, in brief are some more personal injury claims our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering the City of London could help you with:
- Children’s accident claims – Because children can’t represent themselves, a parent can do so at any time before the child’s 18th birthday. If no claim has been made, the victim could claim themselves before they turn the age of 21.
- Slip or trip claims – You could seek compensation if you fall due to somebody else’s negligence. Therefore, the following could all lead to a claim: a slippery floor; a broken handrail; an icy pathway; or a raised paving slab.
- Accidents in public places – You might be able to claim against the local authority or business if injured in a public place like a park, train station or shopping centre. Claims could be made if the operator of the place caused the accident through their negligence.
Claim For A Mis Sold Personal Pension Plan Or Financial Service
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has introduced rules to protect customers who are purchasing products such as pensions, annuities, investments and mortgages. As a result, if a financial advisor has broken the rules causing you to lose money, you could make a compensation claim.
If the rules are broken then a claim for financial misselling could be possible. For example:
- Customers mustn’t be pressured into choosing a product.
- Advisors should provide a good range of products for the customer to choose from.
- Terms and conditions should be explained clearly.
- Customers should be made aware of any ongoing fees or charges.
- The customer’s health history and lifestyle should be considered prior to recommending a product.
