A Guide To No Win No Fee Claims
If you do not already have experience with compensation claims, you might not know what a no win no fee claim is and how it works. Simply put, when it comes to a no win no fee claim, you would be required to sign an agreement that sets out the conditions under which you would pay your no win no fee solicitor. This could be referred to as a CFA or Conditional Fee Agreement, or you might hear it being called a no win no fee agreement, The principle remains the same. Your lawyer would be paid a success fee of a percentage of your compensation payout if they managed to secure you an awarded settlement. This percentage – as per the government’s cap -can not be more than 25%. If your solicitor does not secure you any compensation, but you had a valid claim, then they would not be able to lay claim to this success fee, so you would not be required to pay it.
Some people may consider this a real benefit when looking to make a claim, as they may feel that gaining experience from a legal professional without risking their own funds would be beneficial.
Now we’ve explained some more about how this kind of claim proceeds, let us go through some common claims that a no win no fee solicitor could assist with.

Whether you suffered whiplash in a Suffolk bus accident when a driver failed to maintain a safe stopping distance, or you suffered some sort of injury in a motorbike accident, cyclist accident, pedestrian accident or a Suffolk car accident, today could be the day you take action to claim compensation – if someone else caused your injuries, that is.
There are certain criteria that should be met for a claim to be valid. Someone else would have had to have been at fault for the road accident in Suffolk, you must have suffered injuries because of that accident, and you must make your claim within the personal injury claims time limit. You could, in some cases, be claiming on behalf of someone else; for example, if you have lost a loved one in a Suffolk fatal accident on the road, or if you are claiming on behalf of a child that has been injured in a road accident in Suffolk.
What If I Was In Some Part To Blame?
Proving liability is the job of your personal injury solicitor, and while you may think that if you were partly to blame, a personal injury lawyer couldn’t help you at all, they could still help you claim in some cases where you were partially at fault. However, the compensation for this type of accident would likely be lower than if you were totally blameless, in order to reflect your involvement.
How Common Are UK Road Accidents?
Government statistics for 2018 revealed that while the number had dropped for casualties that occurred on UK roads, in 2018, 160,597 people were still injured because of incidents on roads in the UK. 1784 of these were, sadly, fatal. If you lost a loved one in a fatal accident that was not their fault, you could claim compensation not only for their suffering but also for any detrimental financial impact their death could have on your household if you were dependent on them.

No win no fee solicitors covering Suffolk could also assist with work injury compensation claims. These kinds of claims could come about because an employer has been negligent in protecting your health and safety in a reasonable manner while you are at work. They are required by law to do so. If they do not abide by this, and you suffer injuries in an accident that would not have happened had they not been negligent, you could not only put in a claim for compensation for the suffering of the injuries but also for any lost wages, travel or medical costs arising because of the accident.
If you are wondering what sort of action your employer should be taking towards your health and safety, it would be difficult to generalise this, because workplaces could differ vastly between industries, so the risks present in one would not necessarily be present in another. However, some actions that could be taken in some circumstances might be:
- Allowing you to take regular breaks from repetitive/highly stressful work
- Ensuring that you have manual handling training if this is part of your job role
- Making sure PPE is provided (gloves etc) if you are handling dangerous materials
- Ensuring that your workstation is set up according to the DSE regulations if necessary
- And more…
Another type of workplace claim could relate to a condition that came on overtime if it was linked to your work. Conditions such as tendonitis, repetitive strain injuries, COPD etc could lead to claims if your employer did not do enough to protect you from contracting such conditions.
