Could I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
Whether you are looking into making a personal injury claim, or a financial mis selling claim, you may wish to know if you could make a claim without having to pay out initially to retain a solicitor’s services. In many cases, you could. No win no fee solicitors covering Darlington could help in a wide variety of cases, which we’ll explore in the sections below, but first, let us look into what a no win no fee claim is.
When you make a claim for compensation, if you choose a no win no fee solicitor, you’ll be presented with a document, which is often referred to as a CFA. This document is an agreement that is signed by both you and your solicitor and it sets out the conditions under which payment for the solicitor’s services is made. You do not have to put money upfront to fund your claim. Instead, the CFA will detail a percentage amount of your eventual settlement that will go to the lawyer on successful completion of your payout. The percentage is subject to a government cap of 25% of your compensation, which you may be surprised about – this would mean that the majority of your compensation would be for your benefit, with the solicitor only taking up to a quarter (in some cases, even less!).
Your solicitor should answer any questions you might have about the conditions contained within the agreement. They may also advise you to insure yourself against the unlikely eventuality of a non-successful claim. If you’d like any advice or guidance on no win no fee agreements, we would be happy to talk any queries over with you.
Now you have more information about how claims of this type work, let us look at what types of claims could be handled by no win no fee solicitors covering Darlington.

In an accident was caused by someone else on the road, and you were injured, a no win no fee solicitor could help you make a personal injury claim.
Have you suffered a clinical negligence breach of duty of care? Did medical negligence cause you to suffer mental or physical harm? If so, and a no win no fee solicitor could prove this was the case, you could be entitled to compensation. Personal injury claims relating to medical negligence could be tricky to prove, however, as your personal injury lawyer would need to evidence that but for the negligence, your medical condition would not have deteriorated, or an injury would not have occurred.
In some cases, this might be less complex to prove. For example, if a surgeon left instruments inside you, which required you to have to undergo an operation to remove them, this could be a fairly clear-cut case. However, if you had cancer, and a late diagnosis meant you needed more invasive treatment or your prognosis was poorer, this could be more tricky to prove. This is why having an experienced personal injury solicitor with prior knowledge of cases such as yours could prove to be invaluable. They would be able to draw on their knowledge and experience to apply the most appropriate argument for your claim.
Surgical negligence and cancer late diagnosis are not the only types of medical negligence you could claim for. No win no fee solicitors covering Darlington could help you with:
- Birth injury negligence
- Midwife negligence
- Blood test negligence
- Hospital infection claims
- Dental negligence
- Care home negligence
- And more….
In essence, if you have suffered harm due to medical negligence, we could provide you a solicitor from our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Darlington to help you.
Whether you suffered an injury in a one-off accident or you have developed a workplace illness or work-related condition, no win no fee solicitors handling Darlington claims could take some of the stress of claiming from your shoulders by putting their experience and knowledge into arguing your case for compensation.
Your employer, no matter what industry you work in, owes you a duty of care. They are required by law to ensure your health and safety is considered, and risks of harm are reduced while you are at work. If they fail to do so, and you suffer harm, then they could be held liable for the harm that you’ve suffered and no win no fee employment solicitors handling Darlington claims could assist you.
This could take one of two forms. On the one hand, we have accidents that happen such as slips and falls, burns, crush injuries and the like. These could occur because your employer has not provided correct training, or has now provided protective equipment, or if they have failed to maintain machinery or keep the workplace safe in other ways. The time limit for claiming in these circumstances is usually 3 years from the accident date, but exceptions could exist.
On the other hand, we have conditions that could come on over a period of time. The personal injury claims time limit with this sort of case would likely be 3 years from your diagnosis date but again, some exceptions could exist. Conditions such as hand-arm vibration, white finger vibration, tendonitis, RSI and COPD could be claimed for if it could be proven that you suffered the condition because of your work, and it could have been avoided had your employer not been negligent in their health and safety responsibilities.

There are a number of different types of legislation that could cover you when you are injured on holiday, including the Package Travel Regulations or the Montreal Convention.

You might be under the misapprehension that you wouldn’t be able to make a claim outside of the usual 2 year time limit if you suffered abuse from years before. However, no win no fee solicitors covering Darlington claims could make the argument on your behalf that you were unable to adequately process the abuse in order to report it or talk about it.
