Conditional Fee Agreements Explained
No win no fee agreements are known legally as Conditional Fee Agreements or CFAs. They are a contract between a no win no fee solicitor and their client. Within the CFA it clearly explains that the client only needs to pay the solicitors fees if compensation is awarded. When that happens, a ‘success fee’ is deducted from the compensation before the rest is paid to the client. Success fees, by law, can be no more than 25% of the settlement figure.
When you begin a claim, you’ll need to show the solicitor why they should take on your claim. It’s important that you can demonstrate that somebody, who owed you a duty of care, was negligent and that negligence led to you suffering unnecessarily. Different types of claims have different time limits. In criminal injury claims, there is a 2-year time limit while the personal injury claims time limit and package holiday time limits are generally 3-years. We’d recommend calling one of our team to clarify how long you have to claim if you’re not sure. We offer free advice and you’re under no obligation to proceed.

Claims For Road Accidents In Wellingborough
Any form of road accident could lead to a compensation claim if you suffered injuries and the accident was caused by another road user. Anybody injured in an accident could be eligible to claim including pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, passengers (including public transport passengers) and motorcyclists.
It’s important to try and gather evidence to support your claim as soon as possible because when vehicles start to be moved from the scene of an accident, it can become trickier to prove. Therefore, if you’re involved in a car accident in Wellingborough, try to:
- Take photographs before the scene is cleared.
- Seek out any witnesses and get their details.
- Visit the local A&E or your GP for treatment of your injuries (including minor injuries).
- Look for CCTV or dashcam footage.
A personal injury lawyer could help with claims for any type of injury. Some of the more common include broken bones, head injuries, neck injuries including whiplash, back injuries, soft tissue damage, and permanent scarring.
Wellingborough Medical Negligence Compensation Claims
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Wellingborough could help you make a claim for medical negligence if a medical professional has caused you to suffer because of negligent treatment.
Compensation amounts for medical negligence can vary widely depending on the severity of your injuries which is why it’s important to have a specialist on your side who can demonstrate the injuries and amount of suffering that was caused.
Wellingborough Work Accident Compensation Claims
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, your employer needs to try and ensure you are as safe as possible while at work. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) provides advice to employers on how to conduct risk assessments, provide training along with specific health and safety policies to help reduce risk.
If your employer fails to follow that advice and you’re injured at work, you could seek compensation. Under UK law, your employer is not allowed to sack you, discipline you or treat you any differently for making a claim.
You might be able to claim if an accident occurred, in which you were injured, because:
- You hadn’t been trained in the task properly.
- The machinery or equipment which caused your injury was faulty, un-maintained or damaged.
- You weren’t provided with safety equipment to protect you.
No Win No Fee Holiday Injury Compensation Claims
As well as helping claim for an accident in Wellingborough, our panel of solicitors could help you make a claim if you’re injured while on holiday.
The types of claim where you have suffered unnecessarily that they could help with include:
- Airport or in-flight accidents.
- Food poisoning claims.
- Hotel accidents.
- Car hire or airport transfer accident claims.
- Excursion or activity-based injuries.
- Cruise ship accidents.
- Package holiday claims.
As making a claim for accidents that occurred on holiday can be complex in nature, you’ll be happy to know that our panel of no win no fee solicitors are well versed in both UK and International law. For free advice on making a holiday injury compensation claim, please speak to a member of our team today.
No Win No Fee Abuse, Criminal Injury And CICA Claims
Another type of claim that our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Wellingborough could help with is one for criminal injuries. This is different from a personal injury claim as it’s not usually made against the perpetrator, but a government scheme known as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICA).
If you’ve suffered any physical or psychological injuries or financial losses linked to the injuries, then you might be entitled to make a CICA claim.
The CICA scheme has its own rules though which include:
- A 2-year time limit for claims (but this can be extended for historical cases).
- Crimes need to have been reported to the police.
If you have been a victim of a violent crime and would like to know more about claiming for the injuries that you have suffered, please do not hesitate to contact us using the information contained in this guide.
More No Win No Fee Accident Claims
There are a few more personal injury claims that we’ll cover briefly in this section before we move on to other claims a no win no fee solicitor could help with. These are:
- Slips and falls.
When an accident involving a slip, trip or fall is caused by negligence such as broken handrails, trailing cables, slippery floors or poor lighting, then you could use a personal injury lawyer to seek compensation for any injuries.
- Accidents involving children.
It’s possible for a parent to claim on behalf of a child up until they turn 18. After that, the adult who was injured as a child has 3-years to make their own claim.
- Public place accidents.
If you have an accident in a public place such as a park, shop, railway station or car park, then you might be able to sue the owner for any injuries caused by their negligence. Try to identify who’s responsible, take photographs and seek medical treatment to help support your claim.
Mis Sold Investment Or Pension Claims
There are strict guidelines surrounding the selling of financial products. These are designed to protect consumers from losses caused by mis-sold investments. They’re governed by the Financial Conduct Authority or FCA.
Financial advisors are duty bound to offer you advice which lets you make an informed decision when purchasing products like pensions, mortgages, annuities and investments. If they fail to do so, and you lose money as a result, you could seek compensation against them.
If you were only provided with one or two products to choose from, there was pressure to choose a particular product, you weren’t told about fees or charges linked to the product or you were advised to move money out of a workplace pension, then you might be entitled to make a claim. Please note that you are only eligible to make a claim for financial misselling if you have lost out financially as a result. If you would like to go through your circumstances in more detail, please get in touch.
No Win No Fee Tenancy Deposit Dispute Claims
Back in 2007, the government introduced tenancy deposit schemes (or TDS). The idea behind was that landlords could only retain some or all of the tenant’s deposit with good reason (such as damage to the property or unpaid bills).
You might be able to raise a no win no fee tenancy deposit dispute if:
- Your deposit wasn’t placed in an appropriate TDS within 30 days of you paying it.
- The landlord didn’t let you know which scheme they’d used.
- Or if your deposit was taken out of the scheme before your tenancy ended.
No Win No Fee Housing Disrepair Compensation Claims
When you rent a property, if your landlord fails to fix a problem that they are aware of, you could claim housing disrepair compensation if the problem causes you to:
- Suffer an injury.
- Become ill.
- Or lose out financially because you had to pay for the repair, or your personal property was damaged.
The types of issue that could lead to a claim against your landlord, whether they’re a private landlord, council or housing association, include:
- Fire and electrical hazards.
- Structural problems.
- Mould and damp.
- Broken heating or hot water.
- Leaking pipes or roofs.
- Blocked drains.
