Each claim has its own unique aspects. Therefore, you may have questions that this guide does not answer. If you do, please speak to a member of our claims team on 0800 073 8802.

What Are No Win No Fee Claims?
Did you know that there is a way to minimise the financial risks involved in making a compensation claim? You can use the services of a No Win No Fee solicitor. When we use the term No Win No Fee, we actually mean a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
Under a CFA, your solicitor has agreed to defer their fee until the claim has been resolved, and you have received a compensation settlement. This means that you won’t be charged at the beginning of your claim. You are also not charged by the solicitor to process the claim, they will pursue the claim to its resolution without expecting any fee at all. If they don’t manage to get you any compensation, you still don’t need to pay them anything. In the event that your claim is successful, your solicitor’s success fee will be taken from the settlement figure provided by the third party at the end of your claim. The percentage that the solicitor takes will have been pre-agreed, and then you will receive the remainder.
If you need more information about what a CFA is and how it works, you can either speak to our claims team on the number at the end of the page, who will explain it to you, or you can read our more detailed explanation by clicking here.

No Win No Fee Cases Of Clinical Negligence In West Bromwich
Whenever a medical professional causes a patient to suffer an avoidable injury through some form of negligence, it could be possible for the patient to make a claim for clinical negligence in West Bromwich. This applies to every kind of medical professional, including for example:
- Your GP.
- Hospital nurses.
- Your dentists or optician.
- A care worker in a nursing home.
- A pharmacist.
- A cosmetic surgeon.
The key to clinical negligence claims is that it must be proven that the medical professional failed in their duty of care towards the patient, in a way that a) caused the patient harm, and b) could have been avoided. It is down to the victim to prove that negligence took place.
If you have been a victim of medical negligence and would like to make a claim for the injuries that you have sustained, our panel of No Win No Fee solicitors covering West Bromwich could assist you in making a claim against the health provider in question.
Claims For Workplace Injuries And Accidents In West Bromwich
Have you been injured in an accident at work that was not your fault? Or perhaps you have contracted an illness due to being exposed to some kind of health hazard at work? If it can be proven that your employer was responsible, then you could be able to make a workplace injury due to negligence. Some of the most common work-related accidents are:
- A trip, fall or slip.
- Being struck by a moving or falling object.
- Accidents involving vehicles.
- Lifting or manual handling accidents.
- Exposure to a biological or chemical hazard.
- Falling from a height.
Your employer is supposed to try to remove hazards that can cause accidents such as these, as part of their health and safety regulations. This is a legal requirement. Employers are expected to proactively evaluate safety in the workplace, and take appropriate steps to mitigate any hazards that are uncovered. If your employer failed to do this, and this led to you being harmed in some way, our panel of solicitors could be able to help you make a claim. Speak to one of our expert advisors on the number you will find at the end of the page. They will be able to tell you whether you have a valid claim against your employer for a workplace accident.
Holiday Injury Compensation Claims Handled By Our Panel Of Solicitors Covering West Bromwich
There are a number of reasons you may need to make a claim for something that happened while you were on holiday. For example, if you were injured in an accident that was the fault of the third party, you could be able to make a holiday injury compensation claim. You may also be able to make a claim for flight delay compensation in certain situations. Some of the kinds of service providers that you could claim from include:
- Hotel operators.
- Airlines, rail companies and bus companies.
- The operator of an airport.
- Restaurants, cafes and fast-food outlets.
- A package holiday vendor.
- The provider of adventure activities such as water sports or rock climbing.

Your solicitor will either make a claim against a UK travel firm if you were on a package holiday, or an individual travel provider if you were on a holiday you booked privately. If you are unsure which of these two situations would relate to your own case, please speak to one of our claim advisors on the number down at the bottom of this guide.
Victim Of A Violent Crime Compensation Claims
Violent crimes, or crimes that are sexual in nature, can leave the victim with not only physical injuries but also long-lasting psychological issues. This could include depression, phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or anxiety.
If you have become the victim of a violent crime, you may never know the identity of your attacker. And if this is the case, who do you claim compensation from? There is a special UK Government-run organisation called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). What CICA does, is to provide a conduit for the victim of a violent crime to claim compensation.
Additional Accident Claims Handled By Our Panel Of Solicitors Covering West Bromwich
We have covered some of the more common reasons why people make personal injury claims in the sections above. However, whenever a person is injured or becomes ill due to the actions of a third party, there could be a valid basis for making a compensation claim. For example:
- You slipped on oil that had leaked onto the forecourt of a petrol station, which had not been cleaned up or signposted as a hazard.
- Your child is injured by faulty equipment at a public playground, that the local authority was responsible for maintaining.
- A waitress at a café spills hot coffee on you, causing a scaled injury.
- Whilst exercising at a gym, your personal trainer fails to ensure that you are using all of the gym equipment safely, and you suffer an injury because of this.
All of these examples show ways that a person has been injured, due to the actions (or inaction), of a third party in some way. In cases such as these, we could be able to help you to make a claim. Please talk your claim over with one of our claim advisors.
No Win No Fee Mis-Sold Financial Services Claims
Since 2006, there have been regulations in place that police the way that all financial advisors, including Independent Financial Advisors (IFA), sell financial products. Specifically, those that carry some kind of risks such as a pension or annuity. This also applies to mis sold insurance premiums such as Payment Protection Insurance (PPI).
The financial advisors selling you such a product is legally obliged to offer you the best advice possible, even if this means that they will not make a sale. All risks must be divulged, and the advisor must inform you of their level of experience in selling such products honestly.
If your financial advisor does not follow the rules related to selling financial products, and you subsequently suffer some form of financial loss, then you could have the basis for a mis selling claim.
No Win No Fee Tenancy Deposit Compensation Claims
As a private tenant, either renting from an individual, or from a letting agency, you have certain rights that relate to the way that your landlord must handle your tenancy deposit. Your deposit money must be protected financially within 30 days of you paying it. What this means is that your landlord cannot add it to their general funds or spend it. The deposit must continue to be protected in this way for the entire term of your tenancy.
No Win No Fee West Bromwich Housing Disrepair Claims
Your landlord or letting agency is required to maintain your rental property to a safe standard. There is a well-defined legal process for tenants to follow if their landlord has not responded with their request to fix a problem.
If the disrepair is not tackled in a timely manner, this could lead to you suffering some form of physical harm or financial loss. For example, damp or mold could make you ill, or your belongings could be damaged by a leaking pipe. In cases such as these, it could be possible for you, the tenant, to make a claim against your landlord. This is something our panel of solicitors could assist you with. To learn how, please speak to our claims team.
