What Is A No Win No Fee Claim Agreement?
If you have been in an accident in Havant that was not your fault, suffered some financial loss due to pension mis selling, housing disrepair or an improperly protected rental deposit, you might wish to claim compensation. You could do so without having to pay upfront for a lawyer to take on your case. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Havant could begin working on your case quickly, and without upfront payment being required.
A no win no fee claim agreement (often called a Conditional Fee Agreement or ‘CFA’), is a document signed by you and the solicitor that is taking your case before they begin work. It sets out the conditions that should be met in order for the lawyer to be paid and the level of payment they should receive. Usually, their fees are set out as a percentage of the total settlement you’d receive. The amount they could take is capped at 25% so you would not need to worry that there would be nothing left of your settlement once the legal fees had been deducted. It could be important to remember that the lawyer would only receive these monies if your case resulted in a settlement. If you have a valid claim, and your lawyer is not successful in obtaining a payout for you, then you would not be required to pay their fees.
Some benefits of claiming with a no win no fee solicitor could be:
- Less financial risk for claimants
- No upfront payment
- Lawyers would be unlikely to take on your case or waste your time if they do not feel you’d get compensation

If you are looking into making a claim for medical negligence, you could benefit from the assistance of a solicitor with experience in making this type of claim. Your solicitor could help you prove that you were harmed by the negligence, and if they do, you could receive a compensation payout. But what could constitute medical negligence? Here, we offer some examples:
- An A&E doctor missed a fracture on your X-ray and your bones didn’t fuse properly causing you to require further treatment.
- A surgeon did not operate on the right part of your body, causing injury, and requiring more surgery to fix.
- A midwife did not properly monitor you in labour, and you or your baby were harmed as a result.
- A doctor gave you the wrong prescription and you suffered unnecessary side effects.
- Hospital hygiene standards were not met and you contracted an infection.
- A care home did not properly follow bedsore management protocol and your bedsores worsened.
- A dentist did not take care when extracting a tooth and caused damage to a healthy tooth.
The above list contains just a few examples of what could constitute medical negligence. If you think you may have a case, then do not hesitate to get in touch. We could assess the situation and let you know whether we could provide legal assistance from our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Havant.
Are you considering making a claim against an employer because their negligence has caused you to have an accident and suffer injuries? If so, a work accident solicitor covering Havant could help you. Your employer must, by law, take care of your health and safety while at work, and if they don’t and you suffer harm because of their negligence, you could claim for compensation. This isn’t, however, the only reason you could make a claim. You could claim if you have developed a work-related condition or illness that may have developed over time. If your solicitor could prove that your employer knew or should have known of the risks of you developing such a condition, but did not work to protect you, then you could be eligible for compensation.
Conditions and illnesses that could be claimed for might include Asbestosis, RSI, COPD, Dermatitis, and more. If you feel you may have a claim, we could help provide a no win no fee solicitor from our panel experienced in work-related claims.
If you have had an accident on holiday, you may be under the misapprehension that you’d need to use a no win no fee solicitor in the country you were injured in for holiday accident claims. However, you could use no win no fee solicitors covering Havant instead. Whether claims could be made under international regulations, such as the Montreal Convention, or under UK regulations, such as the Package Travel Regulations, depends on the circumstances of your case. But, if you’ve been injured, and it was not your fault, it might be worth you calling our team of advisors to see if we could provide a solicitor to help you.
Claims for holiday accidents could vary wildly and incidents may include:
- Being injured by falling luggage when the plane took off as the lockers above were not secured.
- Being injured by falling from a balcony that collapsed in your hotel.
- Being injured from tripping on unsafe flooring.
- Being injured from broken tiles in the swimming pool.
- And more..
You could also claim for holiday illness if your solicitor could prove that the illness occurred because of poor standards in a hotel restaurant or in the hotel swimming pool.
Illness or injury could not only spoil the enjoyment of your holiday, but it could also cost you financially too. Claims for holiday illness or accident compensation could include these costs as well as a settlement for your pain and suffering.
In Havant and Emsworth, between November 2018 and October 2019, 575 violent or sexual offences were reported. More data on this could be found on the police website. Whether you’ve been injured in an attempt to stop a crime, or you’ve been injured in an assault, or traumatised as a witness, you may be asking ‘How do I claim criminal injury compensation?’. Our advice would be to give No Win No Fee Expert a call. We could provide you with a no win no fee solicitor that could build a claim to present to CICA, who could pay criminal injuries compensation to victims of violent crime. The crime in question would need to have been reported to the police, and there is usually a 2-year time limit for claiming, which is a shorter limit that the standard personal injury claims time limit of three years.
What Happens If I Suffered Abuse And Didn’t Report It?
Cases of historic abuse could be traumatic and victims may not initially be able to talk about what happened. It could take time for them to get to a point where they could verbalise the abuse they’ve suffered. If this is the case, a personal injury solicitor could ask for an exception to be made with regards to the time limit for claiming. If you have suffered abuse when you were younger and wish to look into making a claim, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team. We promise to handle your case with care.
The above sections relate to some of the common types of personal injury claim that could be made with the help of a personal injury lawyer. But there are other types of accident that could lead to a claim. A solicitor covering Havant Hampshire could also assist with claims including:

If you’ve been injured and you think someone else is liable for your injuries, you could simply call us and we could clarify whether you’d have a claim.
Were you put under pressure to buy a pension? Were risks of an annuity not explained to you before you purchased it? Were you not made aware of charges associated with the financial service you were sold?
These could all be clues that you may have been mis sold a financial product or service, and if you have lost out financially, you could claim compensation for the mis selling of financial services.
If you feel you may be in this position, why not call and see how our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Havant could help?
Were you aware that your rental deposit should be protected. There are government-approved schemes in the UK that your landlord should place your deposit in, and they should tell you they have done so, giving you details of where it is held. They should also pay you the deposit back in a timely manner once the amount has been agreed upon. If this doesn’t happen, then tenancy deposit claim solicitors from our panel could help you claim up to triple the amount deposited in compensation. Why not speak to our advisors to find out more?
You may know a little about housing disrepair if you have experienced it, and if you have reported it to the landlord and they have done nothing to repair the damage, you may be feeling frustrated. However, if you have been harmed in some way by your landlord’s failure to repair such damage, you might be entitled to claim compensation. But, what is a housing disrepair claim and how do you go about making one?
If you’ve lost money by having to pay higher energy bills because the heating in your house is broken, or your personal items have been damaged by a water leak, then you could make a claim. You could also make a claim if you’ve suffered an injury or been made ill by the disrepair. This could include instances where you’ve been burnt by a faulty water heating system, or you’ve been made ill by carbon monoxide poisoning.
A no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help put together a claim against your landlord for compensation for financial losses as well as any injuries or illness you may have sustained. The housing disrepair protocol should be followed for making a claim. This may seem complex, but with an experienced lawyer on your side, you could be spared the legwork and stress of putting a claim together.
