What Does A Conditional Fee Agreement Cover?
This section will look at the concept of using a No Win No Fee solicitor to process an accident, injury or illness claim on your behalf. We have published an in-depth guide to Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) which you can read by clicking here. This short section will give you a basic understanding of what a No Win No Fee agreement is. When you begin your claim, the agreement is managed in the following ways:
- Your legal firm will start processing your claim for you. During the time that this takes, you will not be expected to pay any ongoing fees until the claim is completed.
- Once the claim has been completed, if your legal firm was unable to get you any compensation you won’t be held accountable for your solicitor’s fees.
- If a settlement amount is successfully awarded, a maximum of 25% will be deducted to cover your solicitor’s legal fees. This percentage will be discussed with you by your solicitor before signing the CFA.
As you can see, you don’t have to pay any fee at all until you have actually won a compensation payment. Therefore, the financial risk of making a claim is reduced. If you would like to know more about the service we offer and how we can provide you with a solicitor under a CFA to process your claim for you, please speak to one of our claim advisors on the phone number at the bottom of the page.

Crawley Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claims
If you are injured in a Crawley road traffic accident (RTA) that was not your fault, you could be able to make a claim for the injuries you sustained. According to the Department of Transport, the number of fatal accidents on UK roads has dropped by 39% according to stats from 2007 and 2017. However, RTA’s are still very common. A traffic accident could result in injuries such as:
- Traumatic head injuries e.g. concussion.
- Whiplash and other neck/spine injuries.
- Sprains, strains and other soft tissue injuries.
- Fractured bones and dislocated joints.
- Cuts, lacerations and permanent scarring.
Every kind of road user is entitled to try and make a claim if they are injured by the actions of a third party. Possible hazards causing such accidents include:
- Reckless drivers, or people driving while distracted, under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Vehicles with faults such as inadequate brakes or worn tires.
- Static road hazards, such as construction equipment left in the road.
- Pet dogs that are allowed to run into the road.
- Faulty traffic lights or road safety equipment.
In all of these examples, a third party could be responsible in some way either directly or indirectly for causing the hazard. If it can be proven that a Crawley car accident was not your fault, then you could be able to make a compensation claim for any injuries you have suffered. Give our claims team a call on the number below to learn more about this.
Clinical Negligence Claims In Crawley
Every medical professional that cares for our health in some way or another is expected to fulfil their duty of care towards patients at all times. This includes GPs, dentists, opticians and surgeons. This duty of care states that a medical professional should never harm a patient in a way that could have been avoided. When this duty of care is not fulfilled, and this results in a patient suffering an injury, contracting a new illness, or their health worsening in any way, it could be construed as clinical negligence.
In order to be able to make a clinical negligence claim, you must be able to prove that:
- You were harmed by the negligent act of a medical professional who owed you a duty of care.
- That negligence actually took place.
We can help you with this. Please take a few minutes to have a conversation with a member of our claims team. They will explain to you how the process of making a medical negligence claim works and how we can be of assistance by providing medical negligence solicitors covering Crawley to process your claim for you.
No Win No Fee Workplace Injury Claims
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) provides detailed guidelines for maintaining workplace safety. It is also responsible for Health & Safety legislation that all employers in the UK must comply with. If an employer fails to comply with these regulations, the repercussions levied may include fines or loss of trading licence.
If an employee becomes ill or injured from exposure to a health hazard at work, a workplace injury claim could be conducted providing the employer has acted negligently or ignored their responsibilities. We could provide you with a solicitor from our panel of experts that can help you to make a claim for an accident at work. We recommend you call our claims team to evaluate your claim for you.
No Win No Fee Accident Abroad On Holiday Claims
Did you know it is possible to make No Win No Fee claims for accidents abroad? It isn’t just UK claims that your solicitor can process a claim for. However, the process of making a holiday accident, injury or illness claim differs depending on how you booked your holiday.
If you booked each aspect of your trip yourself (a flight through an airline, your hotel through a hotel booking site, as well as local transfers, excursions and activities separately) your solicitor would need to claim against the specific travel provider responsible for the accident. For example, if you were to fall down the mobile stairs while disembarking a plane, it would be the airline that your solicitor claims damages from.
If you booked your holiday as a single package from a UK based travel firm that included flights (or other transport), accommodation, and additional items (such as food, transfers and local activities), your solicitor could claim against the travel vendor who sold you the holiday if an element of the pre booked holiday is responsible through negligence for your suffering.
CICA And Criminal Injury Compensation Claims
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is an organisation set up by the UK Government that helps people who have become the victim of a violent crime to claim damages. This CICA provides a route to make a claim for victims who cannot pursue the perpetrator of the violent crime for damages.
Victims of violent crimes
Becoming the victim of a violent crime is a traumatic experience. No matter how you are harmed, such as an assault, a mugging or some form of aggravated robbery, you could be able to make a personal injury claim for your injuries.
Victims of sexual assault
Victims of sexually related crimes can suffer both physical injuries and serious psychological damage. This could include anxiety, depression, new phobias, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A solicitor can help victims of rape, sexual assault, etc. to make an injury claim.
More No Win No Fee Accident Claims
Above, we covered some of the more common kinds of claims that our panel of solicitors handle for people. However, the simple truth is that whenever you are injured in an accident in Crawley that was not your fault but due to a third party who breached their duty of care towards you, you could have a valid basis for starting a claim. For example:
- You suffer a fall, due to the lighting in a stairwell at a local leisure centre being broken.
- You are told by a serving person that a dish on a restaurant does not contain nuts, when it did, and you suffered an allergic reaction.
- You slip in a supermarket because of spilled food on the floor that should have been cleared up or marked with a hazard sign and you have been caused an avoidable injury.
These are all examples of hazards that are caused by a third party that could result in your being injured in a way that you could make a claim for. Call our claims team and explain what happened to you. They will let you know whether you have a claim that is valid or not.
No Win No Fee Mis Sold Pension Claims
In addition to accident and injury claims, we could also assist with mis sold pension claims, and claims for other financial products that have been mis sold, such as:
- Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).
- A pension annuity.
- Some kinds of insurance, such as Payment Protection Insurance (PPI).
In the UK, there are very strict rules and regulations related to the way that financial products are sold especially if they involve any form of possibly risky investment. If these guidelines are not followed when you are sold a financial product and this ultimately leads to you suffering some kind of financial loss, you could make a claim. Speak to our claims team. They will let you know whether you have a valid claim and how to proceed with it if you do.
No Win No Fee Tenant Deposit Dispute Compensation
Did you know that you can start a tenancy deposit dispute if you have lost your tenancy deposit for a reason that falls outside of those for which a landlord can withhold a deposit? Your landlord must take steps to safeguard all deposits they are handed by tenants for the whole time the tenant is living in the rented property. The landlord must also return the entire deposit to a tenant when they leave, unless the tenant has not fulfilled the terms of their tenancy in some way. Therefore, if your landlord cannot pay you your deposit, or refuses to return it for no good reason, you could be able to make a claim. Deposits should be secured in a Government approved scheme and you should be told all the information about this. Call our claims team today for more information.
Compensation Claims For Housing Disrepair
There are very strict rules and regulations related to housing disrepair and the responsibilities of landlords in the UK. As a tenant, if you follow the correct complaints procedure, your landlord must fix the disrepair within an acceptable timeframe. If they do not, you could be able to make a No Win No Fee claim if you suffer financially or health wise as a consequence, for example:
- Due to damp, mould, or some other health hazard, you have become ill.
- Due to a leaky roof, burst pipes, or some other form of invasive property damage, your personal possessions are harmed.
