How Will My No Win No Fee Claim Work?
The way in which a no win no fee claim works is via a signed agreement between you and your lawyer called a Conditional Fee Agreement (also known as a CFA). This document sets out the success fee that your lawyer would look to take from your settlement if they were able to secure compensation on your behalf. The success fee is usually a percentage of the compensation payout, and can’t be more than 25% of the total settlement figure awarded for your injuries. This is because the government have put a cap on legal fees for claims of this nature.
If your lawyer did not manage to secure compensation for a valid claim, then the success fee would not be payable, which means that you will not be left out of pocket.
There are various benefits that are associated with making a claim through a no win no fee solicitor. These could include:
- No requirement for legal fees to be paid in advance
- Your solicitor would not be likely to take on a claim they felt would not result in compensation
- Less financial risk to you

Statistics covering 2018 revealed that there were 1784 deaths on UK roads that year, as well as 133,302 mild casualties and 25,511 serious casualties reported. While this seems like a large number, it is actually lower than in previous years. However, it clearly shows that injuries do occur as a result of road accidents and if you were injured in a road accident in East Yorkshire that was caused by someone else, then you could consider making a claim for compensation, with assistance from our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering East Riding of Yorkshire.
It does not matter whether you have sustained major or relatively minor injuries in an East Yorkshire road accident. If you have suffered whiplash, lacerations, sprains, strains, broken bones, or life-changing injuries, you could make a claim if your injuries were inflicted in an accident that was someone else’s fault. Even if you were partially at fault, if someone else was also to blame, you may be able to secure compensation. Although if you were partially at fault, then the compensation you would receive would likely be reduced because of your involvement.
Claims could be made in instances where you were injured:
- Riding a motorbike
- On a pushbike
- As a driver
- As a pedestrian
- As a passenger in a car, bus, van, etc
- As another road user
But what would happen if the driver who caused the accident could not be found, or if they were contacted but did not have the required insurance for the vehicle they were in at the time of the East Yorkshire car accident? If this was the case, then you could make your claim through the MIB. For more information regarding this, please get in touch with us today.
If you were harmed as a result of negligent medical care, you could consider making a compensation claim with a no win no fee solicitor from our panel. Cases of medical negligence could be complex, and if there is a previous medical condition to take into account, it may be difficult to prove that the negligence has harmed you. A no win no fee solicitor with experience in claims such as these could help you with this.
Medical negligence that has caused you to suffer might have:
- Made your pre-existing condition worse
- Left you suffering from a new complaint that you would not have had if the negligence had not taken place
- Required to you to have corrective surgery to fix a problem than would not have existed if the negligence had not occurred
- Left you with a worse prognosis for recovery than you would have had if you had not suffered negligence
- And more…
Not only could you claim for the pain and suffering caused by the negligence, but you could also claim for additional costs that you’ve incurred as a direct result of the negligence, including loss of earnings, medical expenses, travel costs and more.
But What Kind Of Claims Might Be Made?
It might be worth noting that you could make claims of this nature whether they occurred in a private medical setting or in an NHS facility. Claims could include:
Surgical negligence – Has the negligence of your surgeon resulted in you having corrective surgery to repair any damage. Or were you left with a poorer prognosis than you would have if the negligence had not happened? This could include instances where instruments were left inside you, or if your anaesthesia failed.
GP negligence – If your GP misdiagnosed you, or gave you the wrong prescription, leading to you suffering a reaction to medication you should not have had, for example, you could make a claim.
Care home negligence– If you were a patient in a care home and were given the wrong medication, or suffered neglect that led your health to deteriorate, then you might be able to make a claim.
Hospital negligence – If you acquired an infection while in hospital because of poor infection control, or suffered a worsening injury because a broken bone was not spotted on an X-ray, a claim could be possible.
Dental negligence – If you lost a healthy tooth because the dentist took out the wrong one, or they damaged a healthy tooth upon extraction of another tooth, then you might be able to claim.
These are just a few examples. Why not call our team if you feel you may have suffered medical negligence that has caused you to suffer unnecessarily.
If your employer does not take reasonable steps to take care of your health and safety while you are at work, and you suffer an injury or a long-term illness or work-related condition because of their negligence, then you may be able to make a workplace injury compensation claim against them. But what are reasonable steps? This could largely depend on the type of work that you do and the workplace you are in. For example, an employer in the construction industry could provide relevant training, PPE, supervision etc and ensure the site is safe to work on. When it comes to an office, they may take steps to ensure that your workstation is set up according to DSE rules, while if you work with industrial machinery they may take steps to make sure that safety guards are fitted and the machinery is regularly serviced and repaired.
If your employer doesn’t take steps to protect you from reasonably foreseeable risks and you are harmed, then you might be eligible to claim compensation.
If you were injured on holiday, or suffered a flight delay, you may be able to use a no win no fee solicitor based in the UK to make your claim, even if the incident that led to your claim happened in another country.
You could claim for accidents that weren’t your fault whether they occurred:
- In hotels
- On aeroplanes
- In airports
- On excursions
- In transfer to your accommodation
- And more…
In some cases, even if your injury happened abroad, you might be claiming under UK legislation. The Package Travel Regulations is a piece of legislation that means you could claim under UK law. However, it is important to note that even if it is international or foreign law you’d be claiming under, you could still seek the legal assistance of a solicitor that is based in the UK.
Another type of claim you could make for an incident on holiday could be holiday compensation for flight delay cases. If you’ve been delayed more than 4 hours, and this has caused you inconvenience.
As you can see, making a claim of this nature could be quite complex. Therefore, we suggest that you call us to discuss your circumstances. We can then provide you with the information that you need to move forward with your claim, as well as advising you which laws are relevant to your circumstances.
Sadly, between November 2018 and October 2019, 129 cases of violent/sexual crimes were reported to police in Beverley Rural.
If you were a victim of a violent crime in the UK, you may be under the misapprehension that you would not be able to make a crime victim compensation claim, but in fact, there is a government authority that you could make claims to, called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). No win no fee solicitors covering East Riding of Yorkshire could assist with CICA claims, which could make the process of claiming easier on you. Normally with CICA claims, you would have a 2-year time limit within which to make a claim for compensation. However, there could be some exceptions in some cases. What you may not already know is that it isn’t just direct victims of violent crimes that could benefit from making a CICA claim. You could also claim if you were injured when you tried to stop a crime, or if you were traumatised from witnessing one.
Sexual Abuse Claim Time Limits
If you were subjected to sexual abuse when you were younger and you think you may not be able to claim because you would not be within the time limit of 2 years, you could be mistaken. In some cases, an exception could be made to this time limit, and it could be argued that you were unable to properly process the abuse that you suffered until much later. One of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering East Riding of Yorkshire could talk this over with you and advise whether they could put together a claim on your behalf.

Were you aware that if you paid a tenancy deposit after April 2007, there are certain deposit protection rules that your landlord must abide by? In simple terms, they must protect your deposit in an appropriate scheme and they should give you all the details pertaining to the scheme they’ve used to protect your deposit. This must be done within 30 days of payment.
If your letting agent or landlord does not follow these rules, or if they are holding your deposit unlawfully, then you could make tenancy deposit compensation claims. The compensation you could receive for this type of claims could amount to triple the deposit you’ve paid in some cases.
