Could I Claim With A No Win No Fee Expert?
Choosing to make a claim with a no win no fee solicitor could help to reduce the financial risk commonly associated with seeking legal assistance. CFA is a signed contractual agreement that states if the solicitor covering your case does not win, then you are not required to pay for their legal fees.
If they do win, their legal fees are deducted from the compensation awarded to the claimant (you). A solicitor’s legal fees are capped at a maximum of 25% of the compensation awarded, and this, along with any other possible fees, should be discussed prior to proceeding with a claim. See our handy guide for more information relating to no win no fee solicitors.

Accidents on the road are common, so common in fact, the Department of Transport reported over 160,000 casualties on the road in 2018. These accidents can cause injuries of all types, and if you can prove that you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you could have grounds to make a claim.
A Road Traffic Accident (RTA) can involve any road user, such as a driver in a vehicle, a cyclist, or a pedestrian. For example, there could have been a car accident in Farnborough where the driver of a vehicle was on their phone, not paying attention and collided with a motorcyclist, causing a serious injury. Some examples of injuries caused by accidents include whiplash, broken bones, internal injuries, as well as psychological illnesses such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
So if you have been injured in an RTA, compensation could be awarded if you can prove that the accident was caused by the mistake or negligence of another person. A personal injury lawyer could help you make a claim to compensate you for your injuries and the financial costs associated with such a claim.
Medical negligence solicitors cover claims where a medical professional makes a mistake, or is negligent when treating their patient, which caused an injury, or made their condition worse. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Farnborough could assist you in making a claim where you have been injured or made ill through the negligent actions of your GP, dentist, surgeon, etc.
If you can prove that you were harmed through a preventable mistake and that this mistake was the cause of your injuries or illness, you may have grounds to make a claim. Compiling the proof needed to proceed with such claims can be difficult, and a solicitor with experience in medical negligence could prove useful.
Some examples of medical negligence include:
- Your dentist extracts the wrong tooth or causes preventable damage during extraction.
- Your care provider in a care home gives the wrong medication or fails to correctly manage bedsores, etc.
- Your GP misdiagnoses your condition, and then mistreats it as a result, causing harm or further illness.
- Your surgeon makes an avoidable mistake during surgery, causing an injury or further complications.
It may be possible to make a personal injury claim if you were injured or made ill in an avoidable accident at work that was not your fault. If the accident was caused due to the negligence of your employers, or by your employer’s failure to meet expected health and safety standards, you may have grounds to make a claim.
Examples of accidents at work can include but are not limited to:
- A warehouse worker being injured as a result of being asked to lift or manage heavy materials without being given appropriate health and safety training.
- A mechanic who is injured by faulty equipment that was used to lift a vehicle, which then failed, and caused the vehicle to fall on him/her.
- A factory worker who was expected to handle hazardous materials without proper safety equipment and developed an illness as a result.
If you can prove that you were injured or made ill through the negligence of your employer, a personal injury solicitor could help you make a claim for compensation. Some people worry that making a claim against an employer could put their job at risk, but it is illegal for your employer to dismiss you because you made a claim, regardless of if you win or not. Contact our advisors today to find out more.
Making a claim for compensation for an accident on holiday can be a more complicated process than other compensation claims. This is because the law varies depending on how your holiday was arranged, for example, if you booked a package holiday through a UK travel agent, or if you made your own travel arrangements.
If your injury or financial loss was caused by the mistake of a third party while on a part of your package holiday with a UK travel agent, your claim would be handled under UK law, and the travel agent would be liable.
Otherwise, if you are injured or have lost money outside a part of the package holiday, or you have made your own travel arrangements, any claims you make would have to be handled under the law of the country it happened in, and the person or business responsible for your injury or financial loss would be liable.
Examples of injuries or financial loss while on holiday can include but are not limited to:
- A flight being delayed or cancelled which forced you to pay for a replacement flight.
- Slipping and being injured while in a local supermarket caused by a spillage that wasn’t taken care of.
- A loose handrail on stairs in a hotel that caused you to fall, resulting in undue injuries.
It is important to note that you need to be able to prove that a third party was responsible for your injury or financial loss. Contact our team today to find out if you might be entitled to claim compensation.
A common question asked is, “Can victims of crime claim compensation?” It is possible to make a claim if you have been a victim of a violent crime, or sexual abuse, and claims of this type can be made through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Claims for criminal injury compensation can be complicated, and different for each person. These types of claims can also have different time limits depending on the situation, which is why it is recommended to contact one of our advisors to discuss what limit will apply to your circumstances.
Examples of crimes a person could make claims for include assault, burglary causing physical harm, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) caused by witnessing an attack on another person.
Victims of sexual assault or rape can also make a claim through CICA. The assault can be recent or historical, and some cases may have the claims time limit waived.
Other types of compensation claims include accidents that were caused by preventable situations which resulted in an injury. For example, if you had a slip, trip or fall in a public space that was caused by uneven or broken walkways, loose railing on a public stairwell, exposed cables or untended spillages on a supermarket floor, etc.
Other possible examples could include food poisoning from a restaurant that made you seriously ill, or an allergic reaction to food that was not correctly labelled. Accidents involving minors could also lead to a claim if a child is injured in school or on faulty equipment in a playground.
People commonly ask, “Can I claim for a mis sold pension?” Claims for a mis sold pension or financial service can be made if there is proof that you have suffered financially as a result of a bank or Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) selling you a financial product or pension that did not meet your needs.
Your bank or IFA is obliged by law to ensure that their customers are given all the necessary information they need in order to make an informed decision on buying the right financial product that meets their needs. If they fail to do this, and their customer buys a product that is not right for them, and causes them to suffer financially, they could be liable to pay compensation.
When you rent a property from a private landlord, letting agency or housing authority, it is normal practice for them to request a tenancy deposit, which protects them from financial loss if the tenant causes damage to the property, or violates their tenancy agreement.
If a tenant meets all the requirements of their tenancy agreement, the deposit must be returned at the end of their tenancy. Your landlord is also required by law to enter your deposit into an approved tenancy deposit protection scheme for the entire duration of your tenancy. If they fail to return your deposit without just cause, or if they fail to protect it, you could be eligible for compensation. The Shelter website contains more information on tenancy deposit compensation claims.
Another question we commonly hear is, “What is a housing disrepair claim?” A landlord has a duty towards tenants to ensure that a property is always in a habitable condition. This means that the property should not have any issues that may put the tenant’s health at risk. For example, exposed wiring, leaks, mold on walls, or damaged surfaces must be addressed, as they could result in an injury or illness for tenants.
The Justice website outlines a protocol that should be followed before you make a claim for unresolved housing disrepair, which involves giving the landlord a reasonable amount of time to address the issues. Failing that, and if the issues have caused your health to suffer, you could have grounds to make a claim against your landlord.
