Experiencing an injury is never a predictable or joyous encounter. In most cases where an injury occurs, it can be quite traumatic and cause a variety of injuries, ranging from physical to psychological. In the moments where a personal injury is caused by an act of negligence or omission, you could have grounds to make a no win no fee claim. If so, a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could provide claimants with expert guidance throughout the claims process. Although they might not be based in your local or surrounding area, a no win no fee solicitor covering Winchester could be of service.
It is worth highlighting that all claims for compensation could potentially be affected by a time limit. Depending on the type of claim you make, such as a personal injury claim or a criminal injury claim, the time limits will naturally differ. Therefore, we would always recommend that you speak with an adviser, as they can discuss the eligibility of your claim and whether it meets the applicable time limit.
What Is A No Win No Fee Claim?
If a solicitor acknowledges that you have a valid claim for compensation, they could offer to handle your claim under a no win no fee agreement. Such an agreement may also be referred to as a conditional fee agreement and is simply a signed arrangement between you and your solicitor. The agreement outlines the payment portion of a claim for compensation if a solicitor is successful in attaining an awarded settlement. If they are successful, a solicitor will then proceed in taking a ‘’success fee’ from the final settlement. By law, this fee is capped at 25%, however, you can discuss this with your solicitor upon meeting.
In the event a solicitor fails to obtain an awarded settlement after accepting a valid claim, the no win no fee agreement will reduce the claimants financial risks.

Regardless of the working environment, an employer should always ensure that the official and applicable safety measures have been performed. In doing so, this should highlight and eliminate any hazardous causes before they can occur, creating a safe working environment for all employees. However, if an employer fails to perform these crucial steps, this is considered a breach of their obligation. If you have suffered from a work-related accident that resulted in an injury or harm, then you might have grounds to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
In the event of a work-related accident, the solicitors from our panel could present a claim if your employer has failed to;
- Assign The Correct Work Gear

Experiencing a personal injury is never a joyous encounter, but when they occur whilst on holiday, being somewhere unfamiliar can make it extremely overwhelming. When an accident on holiday occurs that was caused by the negligence of another, the affected individual could have grounds to make a claim for compensation.
If you have experienced negligence during a specific component of your package holiday, you could have grounds to make a claim against the tour operator in the UK. In order to make a claim of this nature, you must have experienced an injury or suffering due to the fault of another within the confines of your package holiday. So for example, if you booked a package holiday that included a flight and accommodation, and whilst staying at the hotel you are injured due to negligence, then you could be able to make a claim against the tour operator, as this injury was caused within the package.
You may also be eligible to make a claim if you have experienced injury, suffering, a loss of belongings or a flight delay with an airline. Under the Montreal Convention 1999, this act holds airlines accountable for any delays, injuries, or a loss in luggage under their provision. The solicitors from our panel are well versed in international and UK law, so they could handle claims of this nature. For more information or to check the eligibility of your claim, we always recommend that you speak with one of our advisers. They can discuss your potential claim and provide relevant information where applicable.
If you have been the unfortunate victim of a violent crime, you might have experienced life-altering injuries to your physical /psychological health that have affected your daily life. When violent crimes of this nature occur, the affected individual could have grounds to make a claim for compensation.
Although an awarded settlement cannot erase the suffering, it could provide financial aid for the affected individual during the recovery process. This is because the victim may have experienced a loss in finances due to medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, therapy, or simply adjusting to life after a violent crime. In circumstances where violent crime occurs, you could make a claim through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA). In order to make a claim of this nature, you must have reported the incident to the police. There are some exceptions with regards to making a CICA claim and the time limit is different from claims for personal injury, therefore we suggest that you contact us regarding your circumstances.
In addition to the claims that have been listed above, our panel of no win no fee solicitors could handle a variety of additional claims, such as a slip, trip, or fall. In many cases, a slip or fall incident is caused by three common factors, which ave been identified by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE.)These include;
- Design And Maintenance
In cases where a slip or fall accident occurs, the affected individual could be eligible to make a claim if it was caused by a negligent act or omission of a third party. In cases where a slip or fall incident occurs as a by-product of those two factors, there is one of two parties who could be directly responsible. This duty of care is directly influenced by the operator of the land. From restaurants, car parks, shopping centres, to leisure centres, the liability of these public locations could vary between the local government, such as the city council, or private landowners. In order to make a claim of this nature, you must be able to provide evidence that they experienced neglect that resulted in an injury that could have been prevented. Without evidence displaying a third-party directly accountable, it could be increasingly difficult to present a claim for compensation.
If you sought out the expertise of a financial adviser when making a financial decision that resulted in a financial loss, then you could have grounds to make a claim. A financial adviser is required by law to provide you with factual and relevant information. Whether the decision was with regards to a mortgage, a loan, or a pension, a financial adviser is bound by law to provide the customer with all the relevant information before any crucial decision has been made. But in the event, a financial adviser misleads, mis sells or misadvises, the affected individual could have grounds to make a claim. However, it must be noted that in order to make a claim of this nature, the customer must have suffered financially.

If you are a tenant in a rented property that has fallen into disrepair, the owner of the property should tend to the matter before an injury, illness, or financial loss impacts the tenant. This is because the owner of the property has a legal and ethical obligation to ensure the safety of their tenants has been achieved. Whether the property is rented through the city council, a housing association or a private landlord, they have an obligation to the tenant and their safety.
However, if the owner of the property fails to uphold their duty of care, resulting in an injury, illness, or a financial loss, then the affected tenant could have grounds to make a housing association disrepair claim. Common example of disrepair include;
