What Is No Win No Fee?
One of the most common questions we tend to see when it comes to making compensation claims is ‘what is no win no fee?’. Essentially, this term means that if you have a valid claim, but your solicitor fails to win you compensation, you would not have to pay the success fee detailed in the agreement you would have signed before your claim began. The agreement – also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) – would detail how much of your compensation would go to your solicitor on finalisation of a successful claim. If you are a little concerned at how much your lawyer could take, it could put your mind at rest to know that, because of a government cap, a lawyer cannot take more than 25% of your eventual settlement as a success fee.

If you are considering claiming compensation for an injury at work, this section could help you work out whether you could be eligible to claim.
One reason you might wish to claim is if you have obtained injuries in an accident that was not your fault at work. You could claim if your employer is deemed to be negligent with regards to health and safety. This is due to the fact that your employer has a legal requirement to provide a safe working environment and reduce risks as much as reasonably possible. They could do this in a wide variety of different ways, including:
- Making sure they provide relevant safety training for your workplace and your job role.
- Making sure they inspect, maintain, repair or replace machinery when required
- Making sure they provide safety equipment (machine guards, protective gloves, etc) where appropriate.
These are only a couple of examples. Since workplaces and job roles differ vastly between industries, the appropriate actions for an employer to take with regards to health and safety could differ too. A solicitor would be required to prove that appropriate action was not taken to prevent the accident that caused you injury for your claim to be valid.
Another reason to make claims against an employer could be if you’ve developed a work-related condition that could have been avoided. Conditions could include; stress, repetitive strain injuries, COPD, work-related deafness, asbestosis and more. If risks were present in your workplace or because of your job role and you developed a medical condition/injury over time and your employer didn’t act to reduce the risks you could potentially have a claim.
A personal injury solicitor could also help with compensation for a holiday accident or illness if someone else was to blame. You may assume that your personal injury lawyer would have to be based in the country your holiday was held in for such claims, but no win no fee solicitors covering Tonbridge could actually help with many claims that happen abroad. Some claims could even be made under UK laws even if they happen abroad, for example, if you booked a package holiday with a tour operator that was based in the UK and were injured while utilising a service within that package.
So, Who Could Claim For Holiday Accidents?
Essentially, if you are injured on any part of your holiday, and it was not your fault, you could be eligible to make a claim. Some examples could include:
Flight accidents – Examples could include being struck by luggage falling from overhead lockers on takeoff, being burnt by hot drinks that were spilt on you, being injured by a broken seat, etc.
Airport accidents – Examples could include slipping on a spillage that was not cleared up, suffering food poisoning from an airport restaurant and more.
Hotel accidents – Examples could include being cut on broken swimming pool tiles, falling from an unsafe balcony and suffering food poisoning from a hotel restaurant.
Transfer/excursion accidents – Injuries from broken chairs, slips and falls embarking a coach, bus crashes, etc.
If you think you could have a valid claim, why not call us. We could connect you with a no win no fee solicitor from our panel to help with holiday accident or illness claims.

You could claim as a direct victim, someone who suffered an injury while attempting to stop violent crime, or because you suffered mental harm from being a witness to a violent criminal act.
Sexual Abuse When You Were Younger
If you suffered sexual abuse when you were younger, you could still claim compensation if a no win no fee solicitor sought an exception to the usual time limit for claiming. If you struggled with processing what happened to you, it could be argued that you did not have the mental capacity to claim before now, and you might still be granted compensation from CICA. If you are in this position, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
