What Is A Conditional Fee Agreement?
Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA’s) are the technical name for what is often meant by the term ‘no win no fee claim’. With a CFA you will not need to pay for any initial legal costs, nor pay for your solicitor if it is not successful. Under the CFA framework, you will only pay for the services of a solicitor on the condition that they win your claim. If your claim is not successful you will not need to pay the solicitor for their work.
Before you choose to go ahead with your personal injury claim, the person handling your claim should fully explain the details of how your Conditional Fee Agreement will work. You will need to agree upon a success fee with the solicitor in the event you win your claim. How much the personal injury solicitor handling your case will charge may vary. They can not deduct more than 25% of the total amount of damages paid to you. You can learn more about no win no fee claims in this guide.

You could make a work injury compensation claim if you have been injured in the workplace due to the negligence of an employer. In Great Britain, employers have a duty of care to keep you safe and protected in the workplace. They should also tell you about any issues around health and safety which you may be affected by. If specific types of accidents do happen at work, they must also report these accidents and incidents to the relevant authorities.
Serious accidents at work and fatalities must be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Things that should be reported may include deaths, serious injuries – such as a broken bone, injuries caused by a serious accident – such as scaffolding collapsing, cases of industrial diseases, other accidents that lead to employees taking more than three days off.
If you were injured due to a workplace accident, you could be able to make a work injury compensation claim if it can be proven that your employer through correct health and safety procedures could have prevented the accident which caused your injury. Please speak to us today to learn more.
You may be able to claim compensation for an accident on holiday if injured in the UK or abroad, or if your flight has been delayed (travelling to or from a UK airport). Claiming compensation for an accident on holiday may be harder than other types of claims. Your claim may need to be made outside the UK. If it is, it may be subject to the laws of that country, affecting eligibility to claim, time limits and compensation amounts.
There are also regulations in place to help people make claims in the UK for accidents on holiday abroad. If you were flying to or from the UK and were injured on your flight or were flying within the EU on a flight (originating from or returning to the UK) you could be able to claim compensation. Legislation such as the Package Travel and Tour Regulations enable travellers to claim compensation for certain accidents that have happened on holiday.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could assist you in making a no win no fee accident claim for your injury on holiday.

Above we have looked at some of the most common types of personal injury claims which are made with our panel of solicitors. However, this is not an exclusive list of the different circumstances in which people may be injured and for which claims may be made.
Another of the most commonly claimed for types of accidents are falls, slips, and trips. We have a dedicated guide to these on our site. Other examples of personal injury claims may include those for injuries caused by negligence in a beauty salon. If a hairdresser did not perform a patch test for a new hair dye before application and you had a serious allergic response, you may be able to make a claim. You may also be able to make a claim for injuries suffered in places such as swimming pools or leisure centres if the facilities have not been well maintained and caused you to be injured.
In addition to claims for accidents and injuries, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Gillingham could also help if you think that you have been mis-sold a financial product or service. This may include having been mis-sold a pension or other form of investment. To claim compensation for pension mis-selling you may need to show that you have been financially affected by the mis-selling.
The selling of financial products in the UK is overseen by the Financial Conduct Authority. They state that any services sold to you should be done so in a way that is fair, clear and which does not mis-lead you.
If the service provider did not provide you with the right advice to meet your specific needs and if they did not make sure that you were aware of any potential risks from taking out this product (such as the value of an investment being able to go down as well as up), it may have been mis-sold to you. You should also be informed about any costs associated with the products.
For more information regarding financial mis-selling, please contact our advisors today.
If the deposit you paid to your landlord was not correctly protected or was not returned to you, you may be able to make a tenant deposit protection compensation claim. If your deposit has not been correctly handled by your landlord there are statutory amounts of compensation which you could claim.
Under the Housing Act 2004 (Section 213) private landlords are required to put the deposits paid by a tenant into one of three authorised schemes. They must then also provide the tenant with specific information about this scheme within 30 days of receipt of the deposit.
If the landlord has not followed these guidelines, the tenant may be able to claim compensation of one to three times the initial deposit.
To make a no win no fee claim in regard to your deposit, your solicitor may require information such as copies of your tenancy agreement, proof that you paid your deposit to the landlord, any related correspondence between you and the landlord, evidence you have paid all rent and evidence that you searched on the different tenancy deposit schemes for your records.
It can be quite common for a rented property to experience some level of wear and tear during a tenancy. As a tenant, you should make sure the property is clean, and that you comply with any maintenance requirements in your tenancy agreement. Landlords are also obliged by law to carry out repairs that are needed to ensure that the property is safe for people to live in. This duty may extend to carrying out a repair that is needed to plumbing works, or to provide proper cleaning and care if rising damp or black mould is affecting the property.
If your landlord has failed to fulfill their duties to maintain the property you may suffer injury, develop an illness, or find that your personal items are damaged. At this point you may be able to make a housing disrepair compensation claim against the landlord. Before you make a claim in respect of housing disrepair in England and Wales, there are pre-action steps which should be followed.
Please speak to a member of our team to see if you could make a housing disrepair compensation claim.
In addition to the circumstances looked at above, there are a plethora of other accidents which you could claim for or other reasons for which you could seek compensation.
