When Could You Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
The main reason you might want to use a no win no fee solicitor is to reduce the financial risk involved with claiming compensation. That’s why our panel of solicitors who are not based in Coventry but could cover the area with ease operate exclusively on a no win no fee basis.
This means that you won’t need to pay anything upfront for the claim to be started. Also, if the solicitor is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay their legal fees.

No Win No Fee Claims For Road Traffic Accidents In Coventry
Arguably, one of the more common types of claims are no win no fee road traffic accident claims. To be able to seek compensation, you’ll need to show that another road user was responsible for causing the injuries that you sustained as a result of the road accident. This could be because they were driving dangerously, weren’t paying attention or were committing a driving offence.
Any road user could make a claim if they’re injured in a road traffic accident (RTA) that was not their fault including cyclists, drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, pedestrians and those using public transport. The most common type of injury claims that are made as a result of an RTA are claims for whiplash. Other types of injuries could be if you have suffered from a fracture, concussion, scarring or PTSD. This list is not exhaustive, so please contact one of our advisors to discuss your circumstances.
To assist your personal injury solicitor, if your accident was only minor, you might want to try to gather as much evidence at the scene of the accident. This includes photographing the scene before any vehicles are removed, reporting the collision to the police, gathering witness information and getting the details from the other driver involved (including their insurance details).
Coventry No Win No Fee Clinical Negligence Claims
Any medical professional, whether they’re NHS staff or work for a private healthcare provider, has a duty of care to their patient. This means they have to try and keep patients as safe as possible by following the correct procedures, using the right equipment and maintaining hygiene standards.
If negligence or substandard care causes you to become ill, sustain an injury or if your existing condition becomes worse, you could seek compensation for your suffering.
Examples of medical negligence that our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Coventry could help you claim for include:
- Errors in diagnosis by GPs or other medical professionals.
- Incorrect medication being dispensed.
- Contraction of illnesses due to MRSA in hospitals.
- Surgical errors.
- Anaesthetic errors.
- Dentist mistakes causing damage or infections.
- Care home neglect.
- Cosmetic surgery negligence.
In order to make any successful medical negligence claim it must be proven that a healthcare professional has acted in a negligent way, breached their duty of care and caused suffering that another practitioner of the same caliber would have not caused given the same circumstances.
No Win No Fee Accident At Work Claims In Coventry
Any accident at work caused by the neglect of your employer could mean they’ve breached their duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. If that’s the case, you could use no win no fee employment solicitors covering Coventry to assist you with making a claim for any suffering caused.
Some reasons why an employer might be to blame for an accident include:
- The accident happened because you weren’t provided with safety equipment.
- Training wasn’t provided on the task which led to the accident.
- The workplace was generally unsafe because of uneven flooring, trailing cables etc.
- Machinery and equipment were faulty but still in use.
No Win No Fee Holiday Injury Claims
When your holiday is ruined because you’ve been injured or made ill through no fault of your own, it might mean a compensation claim is possible. Examples of holiday claims that can be made include:
- Accidents on a train such as Eurostar.
- Incidents in airports or on a plane leading to an injury.
- Package holiday claims.
- Accidents in your hotel.
- Food poisoning illnesses.
- Swimming pool accidents.
To make a claim for a holiday accident which caused injury or suffering it must be proven that such suffering could have been prevented if the right policies and procedures were in place.
There are many pieces of legislation that a solicitor can use to begin a holiday accident claim including some designed to protect package holiday customers. If you’ve been injured or made ill on holiday because of somebody else’s negligence, please call to see if we could help you claim.
No Win No Fee Criminal Injury Solicitors Covering Coventry
There is a scheme called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) which allows victims of crimes to be compensated for any suffering. It’s a scheme operated by the Government and covers both physical and sexual injuries. The crime must have been reported to the police and you only have 2 years, rather than the normal 3, to make your claim. There are exceptions especially when it comes to historical sex abuse so please call our advisors for more information.
You can claim for physical injuries caused by crimes such as assault or GBH against you and the claim can also include costs that you’ve incurred because of your injuries.
Injuries caused by sexual assaults, rape, unwanted touching and any other form of sex attack could also be compensated through the scheme. Claims of historical abuse can also be made. Please contact us to discuss your circumstances.
Other No Win No Fee Injury Claim Types
Below are other causes for personal injury claims;
- Slips, Trips and Falls
These are very common accidents and can occur almost anywhere. They could be caused by spillages, raised paving slabs or broken handrails. Always photograph the cause of any fall, report the accident and seek medical advice.
- Public Place Accident Claims
These can be made against local authorities, businesses or even individuals. They can occur in places which the public are allowed to use without asking permission such as parks, footpaths, riverbanks, village greens and public highways.
- Accidents Involving Children
When children are injured in accidents caused by negligence, then a parent may make a claim on their behalf until the child is 18. Following that, the adult has until their 21st birthday to begin their own claim.
Financial Mis Selling Claims
In recent years, the way in which financial advisors sell products such as investments or pensions has come under close scrutiny from the Financial Conduct Authority (or FCA).
Nowadays, anybody selling financial products needs to:
- Take your health and lifestyle into account before offering any advice.
- Give you a full range of options so you can make an informed decision.
- Not recommend risky products if you’ve indicated you’re not comfortable with risk.
- Not force you to choose a particular product.
- Provide information about the risks associated with any product.
Tenants Deposit Compensation Claims
With the latest rules on rented properties, landlords and letting agents are no longer allowed to keep your deposit themselves. It needs to be placed in a deposit protection scheme.
You could claim for up to 3 times the deposit in compensation when:
- The landlord fails to put the deposit into a protection scheme within 30 days.
- It’s moved out of the scheme before the end of your tenancy.
- Or, if you aren’t told who the deposit is with within 30 days.
No Win No Fee Claims For Housing Disrepair In Coventry
When you have a tenancy agreement, your landlord is obliged to maintain the property to keep it safe. If you’ve highlighted a problem to them but they’ve failed to repair it, you might be entitled to compensation if it causes you to become injured or suffer financial losses.
This could be the case when:
- You’ve hurt yourself on the damage you reported to the landlord.
- Items of your property are damaged because of the fault.
- You’ve had to pay for the fault to be repaired yourself.
