How You Could Make A No Win No Fee Claim
Making a no win no fee claim could be made easier if you call No Win No Fee Expert, but before we discuss the benefits of claiming with our panel of solicitors, let us look at what this type of claim involves.
Making no win no fee claims would involve an initial assessment of your case. If a solicitor agrees that you could have a strong case for compensation, they may agree to take your case under a no win no fee agreement. This is a binding document that details when, how and how much your lawyer would be paid on successful completion of your claim. Usually, the payment amount is detailed as a percentage of your settlement. It cannot be more than 25 percent. Once your claim is successfully pursued and settled, then your lawyer’s percentage would be deducted, and you would benefit from the balance.
So, what are the benefits of making claims with no win no fee solicitors covering Stourbridge? Here are just a few of them:
- No payment required upfront to secure legal services
- You could have less financial risk claiming in this manner
- You would not have to pay the legal fees from your own pocket; they would be taken from the settlement
- You could take out insurance to cover unexpected unsuccessful claims
- Your solicitor would not be likely to take on claims they did not think they could help you win

Accidents could happen in a number of ways on UK roads. According to the 2018 statistics, 1,784 people died on UK roads in 2018 and 160,597 of casualties of all severities in total. Whether you have been hit by a vehicle while on a pedestrian crossing, been sideswiped by a vehicle overtaking yours in a dangerous manner, or knocked off a motorbike or cycle by a speeding driver, you could consider making a claim with no win no fee solicitors handling Stourbridge claims if the accident was someone else’s fault.
From whiplash to traumatic brain injuries and almost every injury in between, with the assistance of a solicitor, you could claim compensation for suffering and pain, as well as monetary costs you’ve had to bear (such as loss of earnings) as a direct consequence of the accident.
Have you been the victim of clinical malpractice which has left you in poorer health than you would have been had you not suffered medical negligence? If so, an expert from our panel could help build a case against the NHS or private practice that has provided negligent treatment. Claims could be made for a number of different types of negligence. One clinical malpractice example could be if an A&E doctor missed a fracture on an X-ray and your injury healed incorrectly. Another could be if your GP missed the signs of cancer and you had to undergo more invasive treatment than you would if the cancer had been spotted sooner. Some cases of negligence are obvious, while others could be harder to prove, which is why choosing to have a legal expert on your side could be a good decision to make.
It is not just A&E and GPs that could be claimed against, however. Medical negligence claims could be made against:
- Care homes
- And more…
This is because medical professionals owe you a certain duty of care, and if they fail in this care and you’re injured or suffer worsening health because of this negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
No matter what industry you work in, there could be risks of accidents occurring. But what if your employer fails to protect you from a foreseeable risk and you suffer an illness or an injury because of this? If this is you, and you can prove your employer was negligent in terms of your health and safety at work, you could make a claim.
Workplace injury claims could be made if you suffer an accident at work that could have been prevented had your employer taken steps to protect your safety and your health at work. Some steps they could take to avoid accidents largely depend on the workplace itself and the tasks performed within it. They could include:
- Ensuring that you are given relevant training in your role
- Ensuring that you are given protective equipment (PPE) relevant to the tasks you’re performing
- Ensuring that your workplace is free of foreseeable hazards
- Ensuring that safety guards are fitted to machinery when relevant
- Ensuring that safety signage is displayed where appropriate
- Ensuring that machinery and equipment is checked for safety, maintained and repaired where appropriate
- And more…
If you’ve suffered injuries in an accident at work because your employer did not take relevant steps to protect you then you could make a claim for compensation.
You could also make a claim if you developed a work-related illness or an injury that came on over a period of time. These could include conditions such as:
- Industrial deafness
- Work-related dermatitis
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome
- And more…
If your employer ignored the foreseeable risks of you developing such a condition, and did not take action to reduce such risks, you might want to consider claiming a settlement for your suffering.
“Can I claim for an accident on holiday?” may be a common question for those injured abroad. The answer depends on the specific circumstances of your case. There are different regulations and laws that could apply to claims of this type, such as:
The latter refers to two or more parts of the holiday (travel, accommodation, excursions, etc) booked as a package through a UK tour operator.
Wherever in the world you are when you are injured, you could look into making a claim for compensation if it was someone else’s fault. No win no fee solicitors covering Stourbridge claims could help ascertain whether you do have a claim and if you do, they could help fight your claim for you.
You could conduct holiday claims in a number of different circumstances, including:
Accidents at the airport – Whether you have suffered a fall from a balcony at the airport, or been injured because of a trip hazard on the floor, you could consider finding a personal injury lawyer to claim compensation for your injuries.
Accidents embarking/disembarking aircraft – If the floor was not fixed properly, or the steps to the aircraft were uneven, and you injured yourself getting on or off the plane, you could consider seeking compensation.
Accidents on the plane – Whether luggage fell on you on take-off because the overhead lockers weren’t closed properly, or you had a hot drink spilt on you, you could claim compensation if the airline could be held liable for your injuries.
Accidents at your hotel – If you were injured on broken tiles in the hotel swimming pool, suffered bed bug bites because of your hotel’s lack of cleanliness, or you had food poisoning from improperly cooked, stored or served food within the hotel, you could claim compensation.
Accidents while on planned excursions – If you were injured in a coach crash abroad while on your way to an excursion or injured while exploring the excursion site, if someone else was to blame, compensation claims could follow. You could find a solicitor covering Stourbridge claims by calling us. We could provide you with a personal injury lawyer from our panel.
In Stourbridge, between November 2018 and October 2019, there were 1,341 reported sexual and violent offences. Whether you were injured in Stourbridge centre, or on the outskirts, as a blameless victim of violent crime you could make a claim for compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). CICA claims tend to have a criminal injury time limit of 2 years from the incident date but there are exceptions to this. Claims can be made by the victim of a targeted or random attack, someone who suffered injuries when trying to stop a crime in progress, or if you were a witness to a traumatic violent event and it affected you mentally/emotionally.
Historic Abuse Claims
These claims could have an extended time limit for claiming. Our panel could help argue the case for you to receive compensation even if it has been years since the abuse occurred. They could argue that it would have been difficult for you to process the abuse you’d suffered and therefore that you may have lacked the mental capacity to make claims at the time. If you have been in this situation, call No Win No Fee Expert. We could provide you with a solicitor from our panel to fight your claim for you.
Some types of accidents and injuries have not been mentioned above, but you could still make a claim for compensation. If a personal injury lawyer could provide evidence that someone was liable for your accident and the accident caused you to suffer injuries in some way, then you could claim compensation.
Some examples could include:
- Public place injury claims
- Product injury claims
- Fall, slip and trip claims
- Allergic reaction claims
- Food poisoning claims
- And more…
You may not already be aware of this, but it is not just personal injury claims that a solicitor could help with. A pension mis selling claim or other financial product mis selling claims could be conducted for victims of financial mis selling.
The FCA requires financial institutions and advisors to practice fair selling when it comes to financial products. If they have not done so, and you have lost out financially because of this, then you could look to a solicitor to help you make a claim for compensation.
Some indications that you might have been mis sold a financial product, such as a pension or annuity could include:
- Being put under pressure to decide on a particular product
- Not being made aware of high-risk investments
- Not being made aware of charges involved with the product
- Not being offered any alternative products
Has your landlord unfairly held your deposit or not protected it in an approved scheme? Were you aware that if this was the case, you could consider pursuing unregistered or unprotected tenancy deposit claims.
By law, your landlord is required to follow basic protocol in order to protect your deposit. This can be done by:
- Ensuring the deposit is protected in a Government-approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)
- Contacting the tenant by writing within the first 30-days to explain what deposit scheme has been used to protect the amount
- Returning the deposit in full once the tenancy has ended, unless there is sufficient reason to not do so (e.g. damage to the property, missed rent payments, etc.)
Compensation for such cases could reach as much as three times your initial deposit.
If you have a problem with housing disrepair, you should report it to your landlord using the correct protocol. If you have done so, and they have not taken steps to correct the damage, this could cause you harm. You could experience financial harm because your utility/energy bills have increased due to the disrepair (for example, water leakages could bring higher utility bills), or because your possessions have been damaged/destroyed and you have had to replace them.
You could also suffer illness or injury due to disrepair. Mould spores could affect your health and living in damp conditions could too. Aside from this, a faulty boiler could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or burns.
Whichever situation you find yourself in because of disrepair, calculating housing disrepair damages could be complex, and a solicitor could help make it easier on you. They may even be able to include costs within your claim that you might not have considered.
