Here at No Win No Fee Expert, we could provide no win no fee solicitors covering Lincoln from our panel for a variety of different personal injury claims or financial compensation claims.

How Do No Win No Fee Claims Work?
Before we start to look at what no win no fee Lincoln-based claims you could conduct, let’s discuss what a no win no fee claim actually is. Whether you have a personal injury claim or a financial compensation claim, it could be a good idea to use the services of a personal injury lawyer or a financial claims lawyer to assist you. While it is true that a number of claims could be handled without legal assistance, if you do not have any experience of the specific area of the law that you are claiming in, you could find it difficult and rather stressful. This could be particularly true if the liable party argues against your claim.
A solicitor could have years of experience when it comes to fighting these sorts of claims. They could put together an argument on your behalf that might be very hard to refute. They’d also be able to help you decide on whether a compensation offer was fair, or whether you could argue for more compensation.
But, if you’ve already been left out of pocket because of the financial mis selling or personal injury, then you could be wary of paying more out for a lawyer before your compensation comes through. With no win no fee lawyers covering Lincolnshire, this would not be an issue. There would not be a requirement for funds upfront, although you may be advised to take out insurance in case your claim doesn’t end in a compensation settlement.
Once your claim paid out, the pre-arranged percentage would be taken from the settlement and the balance would be to benefit you.

The first type of claim we’ll look at is a road traffic claim. With government figures revealing that there were 25,511 serious injuries in road traffic accidents reported to the police in 2018, it is clear that road accidents can – and do – cause injury to many people across the UK.
There could be many causes for road traffic accidents in the Lincoln area. You may have been struck by a vehicle on a pedestrian crossing because a driver ignored the lights, or you could have been the victim of a rear-end shunt as a passenger, causing you to suffer whiplash. It does not matter what kind of vehicle you were in or even if you were in a vehicle at all; if you were injured in a road accident that was not your fault, you could benefit from the assistance of a road traffic accident solicitor.
But, what happens if the person that caused the accident did not stop at the scene or they did not have the relevant insurance for the vehicle they were driving when they caused the accident? You might be surprised – and perhaps relieved – to find that you could still make a claim. Solicitors could help bring a case to the MIB, who could compensate you in these incidences.
If you were injured because a surgeon made a mistake with your surgery, or your cancer became worse because of a late or missed diagnosis, and but for the negligence, you would have had to have less invasive treatment, then a medical law solicitor could help you bring a case against the liable party. These claims could be hard to prove, especially if there are pre-existing medical conditions that come into play. A medical negligence claims solicitor could be of real benefit in these situations as they would have the experience necessary to put forward a valid argument for you to receive compensation for the negligence you’ve suffered.
It is not just surgical error and cancer misdiagnosis that could be claimed for. Our expert panel covering Lincoln could assist with a wide variety of clinical negligence claims including:
- Dental negligence claims
- Midwife negligence claims
- GP negligence claims
- Care home negligence claims
- Hospital negligence claims
- Blood test negligence claims
- And more…
Clinical/medical staff have a duty of care to look after your health. If they are negligent in their care of you and you suffer injury/illness that could have been avoided, you could instruct a legal representative to take action on your behalf.
If you have suffered an accident at work because your employer failed to take care of your health and safety, then you could consider making a work injury compensation claim. Whether you fell from an unsecured ladder, burnt yourself on chemicals because you were not provided gloves, were injured in a crush accident because machinery was not maintained correctly, or did not have the correct safety guard fitted, you could claim compensation for loss of earnings and other financial expenses you’ve suffered because of the accident.
There are other cases of health and safety negligence that could lead you to make a claim too. If you have developed a work-related condition that was foreseeable, and your employer did nothing about those foreseeable risks, you could put forward a claim with a solicitor for work-related conditions. These could include:
- Industrial deafness
- Vibration white finger
- And more…
If you’re unsure as to whether your condition was caused by your work, or whether your employer could have done something to protect you, our team could help. Call us and see if we could help ascertain whether you could have a claim for compensation.
Have you suffered an injury on a package holiday? No matter where in the world you chose to travel, our expert team of advisors could help you if the accident was not your fault. In terms of the laws you could be covered under, if you booked as a package with a UK tour operator, you could bring your claim under the Package Travel Regulations. But, if you didn’t book in this manner, you could still have a claim. Some international flights are covered by IATA, while domestic flights are covered under UK law. Some foreign accidents are covered by laws in the country you had the accident in.
One thing that we should mention here is that depending on your position, the personal injury claims time limit could differ. This is why it could be wise for you to seek a legal expert sooner rather than later to ensure you are within the limitation period for your claim.
The types of claims you could make with the assistance of no win no fee solicitors covering Lincoln could include:
- UK Airport claims
- Foreign airport claims
- Claims in flight
- Transfer claims
- Hotel accident claims
- Excursion claims
- Watersports claims
- Holiday sickness claims
- Food allergy claims
- And more…
If an accident has happened on holiday and it was not your fault, you could consider making a claim for compensation.
According to police.uk, between September of 2018 and August of 2019, in Lincoln city centre, there were 1041 reports of sexual or violent offences. If you have suffered injuries because of a criminal assault, you should report a crime to Lincolnshire police to make a claim, as this is what the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) requires. You could claim either as someone injured trying to stop criminal acts occurring, as a victim, or if you have witnessed a violent act and it caused you to be traumatised. The time limit for claiming is usually 2 years from the incident date, but there are some exceptions.
Exceptions To Time Limits For Historical Sexual Abuse
If you suffered abuse a long time ago and did not make a report to the police, you may believe you could not make a claim. This is not necessarily the case. Our panel of solicitors could put a claim in for compensation on your behalf as the trauma from the abuse left you unable to talk about it/report it at the time. Please do get in touch for guidance and support if this is the situation you find yourself in. We could handle your case with the sensitivity it demands.
Whether you have suffered injury from a faulty product, fallen from unsafe steps in a public park, or even been injured by falling items in a supermarket, if someone else is liable for the injury you’ve suffered, then you could make a claim with a no win no fee solicitor covering Lincoln claims.
Unfortunately, despite the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) guidelines on the correct way to sell financial products, mis selling can still happen. If you have been a victim of mis selling and you’ve lost out financially, our panel of solicitors could assist you. You could make a pension mis sold claim for incidences where:
- You were sold a product that is unsuitable
- You were not warned of extra charges
- You were not warned of risks
- Your physical/mental health wasn’t taken into account
- You were not given relevant information to make informed decisions
Here at No Win No Fee Expert, we could give advice on such claims.
Do you have cause to launch a tenancy deposit dispute? Examples of these could include:
- You were not told where you deposit was held
- It was not protected in an approved scheme
- It was not protected at all
- Your landlord is refusing to return the deposit despite conditions being met
If you feel you have a case for compensation because of your tenancy deposit, why not instruct a no win no fee solicitor with experience to help handle your claim?
If you’re looking to sue for damp housing which has caused damage to your belongings and/or health, our panel of legal representatives could assist. They could also assist with other cases of disrepair. If you have informed the landlord of issues surrounding:
- Broken doors/windows
- Unsafe boiler
- Insufficient heating
- Water leaks
If they have done nothing about it and you have suffered higher energy bills, personal injury or damage to your belongings, then a no win no fee solicitor could help you make a compensation claim.
