How No Win No Fee Accident Solicitors Work
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another party, then you could have grounds to make a claim for compensation.

This may also be referred to as a conditional fee agreement, and in simple terms, this is a signed contract between the claimant and the solicitor.
If a solicitor offers to handle a claim under a no win no fee agreement, it could reduce the threat to the claimant’s finances and provide them with access to legal advice. If a solicitor is successful at achieving an awarded settlement, the claimant will then be required to pay a ‘’success fee’, which is subsidised from the final settlement.

Under the Montreal Convention of 1999, holidaymakers could have grounds to claim against an airline if the airline neglected their duty of care.

In addition to an airline claim, our panel of solicitors could assist those who have experienced negligence during a package holiday. In order to make a claim of this nature, the affected party must have been injured during a specific component of the package holiday that they booked in advance. For example, if you were to book a packaged holiday that included a flight, and during your flight you experienced negligence that caused an injury, then you could make a claim against the tour operator in the UK. You could NOT claim if you were injured outside the confines of your packaged holiday, as this would be considered an international claim for compensation.

Not only could the affected individuals experience physical injuries, but their psychological well-being could also be affected.

Although an awarded settlement cannot erase the experience and suffering, it could provide financial aid during the recovery process. After all, the affected party may require therapy, rehabilitation, or simply adjusting to life after a violent crime. In order to make a claim of this nature, the claimant must have reported the crime to the police in order for the claim to be successful.

In addition to the claims that have been listed above, our panel of no win no fee solicitors have the expertise to handle claims relating to a slip or fall accident. In the event of a slip, trip or fall accident that was caused by third party negligence, you may wish to make a claim for compensation. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) identified that three common causes contribute to a slip or fall. In most cases, an accident of this nature is caused by;
- Design and maintenance
When making a claim of this nature, there are a variety of people and bodies that could be held responsible. From private landowners, business owners, to the local government, depending on the location of your slip or fall accident, the liability will inherently differ. For example, if you were to slip over a hazardous cause in a restaurant (that could have been prevented), a no win no fee solicitor covering Hoddesdon could assist you when presenting a claim against the negligent owner. It is worth remembering that in order to make a claim of this nature, you must have evidence that proves that a third party is accountable for the accident you experienced.
There are certain scenarios where you might require the expertise and guidance of a financial adviser. If you are making a financial decision or purchase, such as a mortgage, pension, or a loan, then a financial adviser could assist you throughout this process, providing you with factual and relevant information. But in the event you suffer a financial loss due to a financial adviser, you could have grounds to make a claim.
You may also have grounds to make a claim if financial adviser mis-sold, misadvised, or persuaded your final decision. By law, a financial adviser is required to supply you with all the relevant information before a final decision. So any additional fees, hidden costs, threats to your finances, and alternative options should be outlined. But in the event that you have lost out financially due to a mis-sold or ill-fitted advice, you could have grounds to make a claim.
There are some cases for compensation that are caused by a rent deposit dispute. When you begin a new tenancy and sign the agreement, your landlord is required by the law to;
- Protect your deposit throughout the tenancy
- Submit your deposit into a government-backed scheme
- Provide the tenant with information regarding the deposits protection and location
When your tenancy comes to an end, your landlord should return the deposit within the legal timeframe. In most cases, the return time for a deposit is 10 working days from the date that the deposit is terminated. But in the event a landlord fails to return your deposit with solid justification or reasoning, then you could have grounds to claim it back. In most scenarios, our panel of solicitors could assist claimants throughout this process by (potentially) winning a settlement between one and three times the original amount of the deposit.
As with all claims for compensation, we would recommend that you speak with an advisor regarding your potential claim. As they can outline whether you have an eligible claim and provide you with free legal advice.
