What Can I Use A No Win No Fee Agreement For ?
Making a claim through no win no fee services can be attractive to clients as it may reduce the financial risks associated with a personal injury claim. In order to make a valid claim, the solicitor will need to demonstrate how somebody else caused you to suffer before offering a no win no fee claim. For instance, you’ll need to show that:
- You suffered a loss or injury.
- It was caused by somebody else’s negligence.
- They owed you a duty of care.
You’ll also need to make sure your claim is made within the relevant time limit. The personal injury claims time limit is currently 3-years from the date of any accident or injury diagnosis. Other claims have different time limits so please contact us to check if you’re able to claim.
When both parties are happy, the solicitor will provide a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is a no win no fee contract which sets out in writing that the client won’t pay their solicitor’s legal fees unless compensation is awarded. The CFA will explain that if the solicitor is successful, then a ‘success fee’ will be deducted from the compensation (a maximum of 25% is allowed).

Compensation For Road And Traffic Accidents In Wrexham
If a traffic accident in Wrexham causes an injury and was caused by another road user, it may be possible for you to claim compensation for any injuries. The main problem with road traffic accidents (or RTAs) is that evidence of what happened can be moved very quickly. Therefore, we recommend that you:
- Photograph the scene of the accident before anything is removed.
- Ask witnesses for their details and ask for copies of any dashcam footage.
- Seek medical treatment for your injuries.
- Photograph any visible injuries you have.
- Swap details with the other road user without admitting liability for the accident.
Then, when you have the evidence, you could make a claim for injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, whiplash, or cuts and lacerations. If you’d like free advice about claiming for a road accident in Wrexham, call us today.
Medical Negligence Solicitors Handling Claims In Wrexham
If you are made ill or sustain an injury because of substandard treatment by a medical professional, you could use medical negligence solicitors covering Wrexham to claim compensation.
Such cases can be difficult to prove and require complex medical evidence. Therefore, we always recommend using a solicitor with experience and knowledge of such claims. It may be possible to make a medical negligence claim for:
- Pain caused by an anaesthetic error.
- Damage caused during cosmetic, dental or medical surgery.
- Side effects caused by incorrect medicine being prescribed.
- If your illness becomes worse because a misdiagnosis caused a delay in treatment.
- Illnesses caused by hospital super bugs.
- Avoidable injuries sustained during childbirth.
Wrexham Work Injury Compensation Claims
A personal injury solicitor could help you claim compensation if your employer was negligent and caused an accident at work. This is because, under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), employers need to try to keep staff as safe as possible.
While no workplace will ever be completely risk free, employers need to identify as many risks as possible and make changes, where possible, to reduce any risks. Failure to do so which causes an accident to happen could mean a claim is possible.
You might be able to claim if your injury was caused by:
- Missing protective equipment.
- Equipment that’s not fit for purpose.
- Faulty machinery.
- A lack of proper training.
No Win No Fee Injury Abroad Compensation Claims
If you’re injured whilst on holiday or a travel delay causes you financial losses, you could claim compensation against your holiday company that you booked the trip through. You could make a claim against them for parts of the holiday you purchased from them if the accident was caused by negligence. The types of claim you could make include:
- Food poisoning claims.
- Package holiday claims.
- Hotel accidents.
- Travel injuries on a flight, a cruise, a train (such as Eurostar) or an airport transfer service.
- Activity-based injury claims.
If your holiday was booked independently or caused by somebody who was not booked by your package holiday provider, you could still claim but the claim would be made using local legal rules rather than UK laws.
How Do I Apply For Crime Victims Compensation?
Although it’s not that well known, if you are the victim of violent crime, you might be able to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This process is particularly useful because a personal injury claim against the criminal can be made even if they’ve never been identified.
A CICA claim can be made for the injuries sustained in the crime and could also include financial losses, such as lost income as a result of the crime.
Because it’s not a typical type of personal injury claim, there are different rules and criteria for claiming. For instance, the time limit is 2-years rather than the standard 3 years and the crime must’ve been reported to police.
Are There Other Types Of Accident Claims?
Before moving on to other claims no win no fee solicitors covering Wrexham could help with, we’ll briefly explain about a few more personal injury claims you could make.
Accidents involving slips, trips and falls are some of the most common, especially at work, according to the HSE. If you injure yourself in a fall caused by somebody else’s negligence, you may need to gather evidence to show what happened (e.g. photographs, witness statements and medical records) to help support your claim.
If a child is injured in an accident, they’re not allowed to make a claim themselves. However, the law does allow a parent to claim on their behalf before their 18th birthday. If no claim has been made, an adult who was injured as a child could claim themselves so long as it’s made before they turn 21.
Another type of claim is for accidents in public places. Many such places are the responsibility of the local authority including parks, footpaths and public highways. If the accident was caused by negligence of the local authority, you could claim against them. However, there may be a specific criteria that needs to be met in order to make a valid claim. Contact us today for more information.
Financial Product Mis-Selling Compensation Claims
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) are the body responsible for ensuring consumers get fair advice when purchasing financial products. They have a set of rules that financial advisors need to adhere to when selling products such as:
If they fail to follow the regulations properly and you lose out financially as a result, you could seek compensation for your losses. The rules are designed to ensure that you are able to make an informed decision which means the advisor needs to explain everything clearly, including any fees or charges, the terms and conditions, and the risks involved with any product.
Wrexham Tenancy Deposit Compensation Claims
The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) was introduced to prevent a landlord from withholding your deposit unfairly. If you’ve damaged your property or not paid your bills, then a TDS could still give your landlord a part or the whole of the deposit for not meeting your contractual obligations as a tenant. But if there’s no good reason, then you should get your deposit back as expected.
You might be able to claim if:
- The landlord didn’t put the deposit into a government backed scheme within 30 days.
- If they failed to tell you in writing which scheme had been used.
- Or if they moved the money out of the scheme before your tenancy ended.
Claim For A Rented Flat Or House In Disrepair
If your rented house is in disrepair, you might be entitled to make a claim against your landlord. That could be a private landlord, a housing association or the local council. If you’ve told them about a defect, or they were aware of one following an inspection, and you are injured by it, made ill or your personal property is damaged because of it after notify the landlord, you could be entitled to make a housing disrepair claim.
The types of defect which could lead to a claim include:
- Blocked drains.
- Leaking roofs or pipes.
- Damp and mould.
- Broken hot water supplies or heating.
- Electrical hazards.
- Structural problems.
