How Could I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
When you decide to make a claim, you might worry about the cost of legal fees. That’s why our panel of solicitors work on a no win no fee basis. They believe that by offering this service more people are able to claim the compensation they might be entitled to.
Typically, when using a no win no fee agreement, you’ll find the claim less stressful and financially less risky. No win no fee agreements (also known as conditional fee agreements) mean:
- There’s no fee required to start the claim.
- If the case is lost, you don’t pay the solicitors legal fees.
- When the case is won, you’ll pay an agreed success fee (up to 25%) from your compensation.
Importantly, you’ll need to ensure your claim is made within the relevant time limit. Depending on the type of claim you’re making, the limit will vary. The personal injury claims time limit is typically 3 years but claims for financial mis-selling, accidents involving children and holiday claims can have different time periods. Call our team to find out whether you still have time to begin your claim.

If you’re injured in a car accident in Sutton Coldfield, or any other type of road traffic accident (RTA), then you might be able to seek compensation for your injuries. That could be the case if another road user caused your accident because they were negligent.

No Win No Fee Sutton Coldfield Medical Negligence Claims
A claim for medical negligence can sometimes require complex medical evidence to support it. That’s why we recommend using a no win no fee solicitor who specialises in such claims.
The general definition of medical negligence is when you are caused an avoidable injury or illness because a medical professional has treated you in a substandard way. Medical professionals can include GPs, surgeons, midwives, anaesthetists, nurses, cosmetic or medical surgeons, hospital workers, dentists and care home staff.

Injury At Work Claims With A No Win No Fee Solicitor
Other types of claims that our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Sutton Coldfield could help you claim for are accidents at work claims. To be eligible to make this type of claim, you’d need to prove that your accident was caused because your employer was negligent and/or breached their duty of care towards you.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 employers need to try and keep employees as safe as possible. This can be achieved by assessing risks and making the changes when a risk is involved.
This means you could seek compensation if you’re injured in a workplace accident caused by:
- Faulty or unmaintained machinery.
- Protective equipment or clothing not being available.
- No proper training on the task in which you were injured.
- A generally unsafe workplace which caused your accident (damaged flooring, trailing cables etc.).
No Win No Fee Accident Abroad Holiday Compensation Claims
If you suffer an injury during an accident on holiday, not only could it ruin your trip, it could also cause problems for you when you return to the UK. You could still be in pain, have to take time off work and suffer financial losses because of your injuries.
If that’s the case, you could look to claim compensation for your injuries. The claim could be made using UK legislation if you booked via a package holiday provider, or laws of your holiday destination might be used if you booked your trip independently. Either way, a no win no fee solicitor could help you claim.
If you have been avoidably injured as a result of an accident abroad, here are some possible holiday claims that could be made:
- Hotel accidents.
- Swimming pool accidents.
- Airport accidents.
- Food poisoning.
- Cruise ship accidents.
- Excursion / sporting activity injuries.
- Hotel transfer accidents.
Always report the accident to your rep if possible. This will give them the opportunity to resolve your issue or help you. You could also use their report as evidence to support your claim along with medical records and witness statements.
CICA & Criminal Injury Compensation Claims
You might not already know that if you’re the victim of crime which leaves you with an injury, you could seek compensation through a government scheme known as the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA).
Claims are possible for sexual, physical and mental injuries. They can include claims for multiple injuries and can include financial losses caused by the injuries too.
The CICA claim process is different to a normal claims and has its own time limits. If you’d like to discuss whether you could be eligible to claim under the CICA scheme, please call to speak with one of our advisors today.
Other Sutton Coldfield Accident And Injury Claims
As well as the personal injury claims we’ve covered so far, there are a few more which we’ll cover briefly in this section. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Sutton Coldfield could also help you claim for injuries that you have sustained as a result of a third parties negligence. For example;
- Accidents in public places (parks, footpaths, public highways, car parks etc).
- Slips, trips or falls.
- Accidents where children are injured.
It’s worth noting that cases involving children mean that parents can represent the child’s interests and make a claim until they reach their 18th birthday. If no claim has been made, the now adult has 3 years from the age of 18 to make a compensation claim themselves.
How To Claim If Mis Sold A Pension Or Financial Service
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates how financial services are sold to protect consumers. They have a range of rules surrounding the selling of pensions, annuities and other investments which means that if you lose out financially because of poor advice or advice that breaches the rules, you could seek compensation.
A financial advisor could be in breach of the rules if:
- The terms and conditions of a product weren’t provided to you.
- You weren’t given a range of products to choose from.
- The product you were sold was high-risk and you’d asked for little or no risk.
- Your health and lifestyle weren’t considered before recommending a product.
- The charges and fees of a product weren’t explained.
No Win No Fee Rent Deposit Dispute Claims
Tenancy deposit schemes came into force in 2007. The idea behind them is to ensure your deposit is kept separate from other money and also to ensure that the deposit isn’t taken unfairly at the end of a rental period. The scheme provides rent deposit dispute resolution services between the landlord and tenant.
You might be able to make a no win no fee claim if:
- Your deposit was not placed into a suitable scheme during the first 30 days of your tenancy.
- When your landlord fails to write to you telling you which scheme was being used (again, within 30 days).
- The money is moved out of the scheme before the end of your agreement.
No Win No Fee Claims For Housing Disrepair Causing Injury Or Illness
If your landlord fails to repair a fault which is covered under UK law, they could be in breach of their duty of care and also your tenancy agreement. You could ask a no win no fee solicitor to look at making a claim on your behalf if:
- An unrepaired fault causes damage to your personal property.
- You’ve had to pay for a fault to be fixed because your landlord wouldn’t.
- Or if you’ve been avoidably injured due to the fault.
