We work closely with a panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Nottinghamshire who can handle a wide range of claim types, from criminal compensation claims to claims for accidents in the workplace environment.
Not only could third-party negligence be a stressful and daunting experience, it could also seriously impact your physical and mental health too. It may also be the case that your finances are diminished as a result of medical treatment and time off work. If you wish to make a claim for compensation, do not hesitate to contact us today. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors are well-versed in a number of different sectors within the law.
To gain more information about how to begin your claim, call us today on 0800 073 8802. However, it should be noted that your claim will be subject to the personal injury claims time limit for accidents and other time limits for different types of claims. Typically, this will require the claim to be made within 3 years of the incident, though some cases are exempt from this.
No Win No Fee Compensation Solicitors
When you decide to conduct your claim, your allocated solicitor will offer their services under a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement. Also referred to as a ‘Conditional Fee Agreement’ (or CFA), this type of financial contract serves as a mutual agreement between the client and the personal injury lawyer, financial solicitor or other legal expert handling the case. It states that the solicitor will lend their services under the condition that if the claim is successful, a pre-discussed percentage will be set aside as a ‘success fee’ from the final compensation amount awarded to settle any legal fees. This success fee is capped at 25% by law. However, if the claim is unsuccessful, the client will not be held accountable for their solicitor’s legal fees.
A no win no fee agreement is seen to lower the financial risks to conducting a compensation claim. For more information regarding this type of financial agreement, click here to read our detailed guide. You can also speak to one of our advisors on the number above who will also be able to explain this to you further.

There are a number of contributing factors that could lead to a car accident in Nottinghamshire, from distractions on the motorway to an irresponsible road user driving through a red light. In such instances, it is possible to receive compensation for both minor and major injuries providing another person was partially or wholly to blame.
In the UK alone, there were 25,511 serious injuries in road traffic accidents reported to the police in 2018 as shown in a report released by the Department of Transport . Furthermore, according to a Nottinghamshire police accident report, there were 5,649 records of fatal and serious injury collisions going back to 2003 in Nottinghamshire. As we can see, road accidents are not an uncommon occurrence in the Nottinghamshire or the UK as a whole.
If you have been involved in a car, lorry, motorbike accident in Nottinghamshire, or any other form of road accident for that matter, you could be entitled to compensation.

By law, all medical professionals are expected to uphold reasonable standards of healthcare and professionalism while patients are under their care. However, these expectations are not sometimes met and in worse-case scenarios, a patient could find themselves suffering from additional physical and/or psychological, or an existing condition made to be worse or a new condition entirely. This is known as ‘medical negligence’ and can be reasonable grounds for a personal injury claim.
There are a number of healthcare practitioners who can be held liable for negligent medical malpractice, including:
- Cosmetic surgeons
As your health and well-being is of high priority, the guidelines described above have been outlined by various acting medical bodies, such as The General Medical Council (GMC). To make a claim with no win no fee solicitors against the NHS or a private practice, contact us today. We work closely with a panel of medical negligence solicitors covering Nottinghamshire who have the experience and knowledge to deliver successful personal injury claims to their clients.
If you have been involved in an accident at work which has led to unnecessary suffering, you may not be aware that you can hold your employer accountable for their failure to uphold basic workplace health and safety practices. Your employer is legally required to uphold a safe working environment by implementing regular prevention methods to ensure that hazards are avoided at all costs. These could be simple practices such as routine inspections, risk assessments and regular housekeeping.
However, if you do come to experience a form of negligence within the workplace that causes you to suffer, there are some crucial steps recommended by Citizen’s Advice which can provide sufficient evidence to your compensation claim. For example, you could:
- Seek medical attention.
- Take photographs as evidence to support your claim.
- Report the incident to your employer ASAP.
- Gather witness details as future reference for your personal injury solicitor.
There are a number of ways in which a person could receive a settlement amount from no win no fee airline claims while on holiday or in-flight.
The first is for an accident suffered on an entity included in a package holiday provided by a UK-tour operator. This could be anything from a flight to an activity or excursion booked as one whole arrangement rather than individually. In such cases, The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations (2018) will apply.
The second is for holidays and flights booked independently. In these circumstances, it is possible for a claim to be made under the Montreal Convention (1999) for those who have experienced flight delays, injuries and damage and/or loss of personal property as a result of a negligent airline. Though it is important to note that there is a particular criterion that must be met in order to make this claim.
Thirdly, if you have booked aspects of your holiday entirely separate, then you would need to make your claim against the business or organisation that caused you to suffer unnecessarily. In these types of circumstances, you would have to make your claim under the law of the country that you visited.
We are aware that making a claim of this nature could seem extremely complex, therefore, you can discuss these types of holiday compensation claims in further detail with an expert legal advisor from our team.
No one should ever have to suffer a criminal injury, especially as this can be an incredibly daunting experience for those involved. Although a settlement amount can never undo what harm you sustained, you could be awarded compensation as a blameless victim of violent crime through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA). It is possible for compensation to be awarded even if the perpetrator is never caught nor named, providing the incident was reported to the police at the first given moment following the crime.
In criminal injury cases, the typical time limit to make a claim is 2-years from the moment the incident occurred. However, in historical cases of sexual abuse, these time restrictions may be waivered. This is because incidents such as these can be seen to have such traumatic psychological effects that the victim may not feel comfortable coming forward right away.
To discuss a criminal compensation claim in more detail, contact one of our friendly advisors today. Our expert advisors could connect you with a no win no fee solicitor.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Nottinghamshire have the expertise and knowledge to handle additional claims outside of those already discussed throughout this guide. In addition to claims for car accidents in Nottinghamshire and medical negligence, our expert panel can also help you with:
- Slip, trip and fall claims.
- Allergy/food poisoning cases.
- Claims made on behalf of a child.
It should be noted that for cases made on behalf of a person under the age of 18, the claim must be made up until their 18th birthday. From here, they then have until their 21st birthday to conduct the claim themselves.
If you are wondering exactly what is a mis sold investment or pension, then this section could be particularly useful to you. When you come to purchase a financial product or make an investment, the financial advisor controlling the transaction is legally required to fully inform you of all the risks associated with the purchase in question before you come to make a decision. They should also take into consideration any varying factors which could influence or manipulate your decision, such as your health and well-being, hidden costs, financial circumstances, the suitability of the product and whether you are feeling pressured into making a decision.
To make a claim for financial mis conduct, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has provided specific guidelines which should be followed. Click here to find out more about the FCA’s regulations.
When you come to rent from a landlord, the first step as a tenant in securing the property is to pay a deposit which is kept aside until your tenancy comes to an end. From the moment you have paid this deposit, the landlord must:
- Ensure the deposit is protected in a Government-approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) within 30 days.
- Write to the tenant within the 30 day period of the tenancy commencing with information about what TDS has been selected.
- Return the deposit in full after 10 days of the tenancy ending.
This page on the Shelter’s website can provide you with additional advice on how to conduct a tenancy deposit compensation claim. If you do not receive the tenancy back in full without valid reason to do so, your landlord could be breaking the law.
A legal expert could help you receive up to three times the original amount for your landlord’s misconduct. To begin your claim for tenant deposit protection compensation, contact us today.
When a housing disrepair occurs, your initial reaction will be to inform the landlord as soon as possible to ensure the issue is fixed right away. Especially because some may have detrimental consequences on your health and finances. There’s no denying that living in an unsafe house can be both a stressful experience and a hazard to your health. This is why failure by your landlord to rectify any issues within your home is considered to be both a breach in the duty of care owed to you and a legal matter.
Some common examples of housing disrepairs include:
- Water damage
- Electrical hazards
- Defective boilers
If you have suffered because of a housing disrepair, a solicitor from our panel could help you receive compensation for your damages. It should be noted, however, that the disrepair must have been reported to the landlord prior to the damages suffered. It, therefore, may be worth familiarising yourself with the pre-action protocol for cases of housing disrepair by reading this guide by justice.gov.
If you feel that this online guide has helped you decide whether you have legitimate grounds for a compensation claim, feel free to contact us today. Even if you are still unsure about where you stand legally, a friendly advisor from our team will be able to discuss your situation in length.
Instead of looking to an online personal injury claims calculator for a generalised approximation of your potential compensation outcome, our advisors could provide you with a more centralised estimation unique to your circumstances.
