Making a claim with a no win no fee solicitor is something that people could do if they were injured because of someone else’s negligence or behaviour, if they were mis sold a financial product, if a landlord failed to protect their tenancy deposit and more. Whatever type of claim you’re looking to make, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Norfolk could help you if you are eligible to claim. The guidance below has been put together to show not only how claims for compensation are made, but what kinds of claims a no win no fee solicitor could handle. We have focussed this guide on claims in Norfolk, but we also have other guides on the site that focus on different areas of the UK too. We hope the below sections provide helpful information, but if something isn’t clear or you require advice that is tailored to your own circumstances, we could still help you. All you need to do is call our advisors on 0800 073 8802 and we’ll be happy to talk things through with you.
Our Guide To How No Win No Fee Works
If you are making a personal injury claim, for example, you could benefit from the services of a personal injury solicitor to help build a case against a liable party. The same could be true of other compensation claims; having someone on your side with the capability to put together all the evidence required to prove you have a valid claim could not only make the process easier for you but could help to ensure you get the amount of compensation you deserve. However, some people may worry about finding the funds to retain the services of a solicitor for their claim, and some may be wary of risking their own money in case their case does not result in compensation. This is where a no win no fee solicitor could be of assistance as you would not need to pay your solicitor upfront for their services. Instead, what you would be required to do is to sign an agreement to give them a percentage of any compensation payout you receive as a ‘success fee’ for their services. If they are not successful, although you had a valid claim, then this ‘success fee’ would not be payable. There is also a government cap in place as to how much of a percentage of your compensation could be taken as a success fee. The maximum amount would be 25%.

If you take a look at the government’s statistics for road accidents in the UK for 2018, you will see that 160,597 people were injured in road incidents that year. While this figure is the lowest on record, it clearly shows that people could receive injuries as a result of accidents on UK roads.
While you may think you could only claim for a car accident in Norfolk where you receive very serious injuries, this is not necessarily the case. Many less significant injuries could cause not only physical pain and suffering but also financial losses too. For example, let us imagine a claimant suffered whiplash in a Norfolk bus accident. Not only might this be painful, but it could lead to them having time off work, depending on how bad the pain was and how much it impeded them from doing their usual work. This could affect their income. If it does, the loss of earnings could be included within a claim for compensation – as well as them being able to claim for the pain and the suffering that is experienced as a result of whiplash injuries.
Could I Claim On Behalf Of Someone Else?
While many claims are made by the person/s experiencing the injuries themselves, there could be a possibility that you would be able to make a claim on behalf of another person. Examples could include:
- Claiming as a dependent or on behalf of someone that has passed away in a Norfolk fatal crash
- Claiming on behalf of a child that was injured in a Norfolk road accident
- Claiming on behalf of someone that did not have the mental or physical capacity to make a claim for themselves

If you are wondering if you are eligible to make a tenancy deposit compensation claim, then it may be that your landlord has withheld your deposit unfairly, or they may have failed to protect it as they should.
Rules for deposits paid after April of 2007 require a landlord to put your deposit into a TDS (Tenancy Deposit Scheme) – there are a few different TDS’ approved by the government, and your landlord should use one of these. They are also required to tell you the details of the TDS they’ve used, along with the conditions attached to the return of your deposit. If they haven’t followed these deposit protection rules, and you are left out of pocket, then a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could help you make a compensation claim.
The amount of compensation you could receive in these cases could vary, but could bring you anything between 1 and 3 times the initial deposit amount.
