What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors Or Lawyers?
No win no fee lawyers are legal professionals who do not charge a client for their services in the event of an unsuccessful claim. However, if the claim is successful and the client receives the compensation they sought, a solicitor working on a no win no fee basis will receive a portion of the compensation as their payment rather than accepting the clients own money as payment in the form of a ‘success fee’.
The amount that the no win no fee lawyer receives will always be discussed with their client beforehand, though it should be noted that this ‘success fee’ is capped at a maximum of 25%. Also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), we recommend a no win no fee agreement to the majority of our clients in order to avoid the risk of spending a large amount of money on upfront costs.

There are many forms in which medical malpractice can take. For example, if you have been injured during a dental check-up or surgical procedure, such as having your teeth or gums damaged during a tooth removal or if one of your organs has been damaged during surgery, then you may have been the victim of medical negligence. This could also be true if you have been to see your GP when you have been unwell and they have failed to diagnose an issue that later went on to impact your health, or if they prescribed you with an inappropriate treatment that hampered your recovery If you or a loved one has been living in a residential care home and has suffered health problems or injuries as a result of negligent treatment then you could have grounds to seek compensation from the care home.
Medical negligence can also come in the form of hospital negligence, where the general care you receive while staying in a hospital is so poor it has an impact on your health. This can be especially dangerous if you are recovering from an illness or surgery, where you may be more vulnerable to infections. You may also be at risk if hospital staff or doctors where negligent during your admittance to A&E.

Criminal injury compensation can be awarded to victims of violent crime to compensate them for the repercussions of physical injuries or psychological harm they may have suffered as a result of being the victims of a crime or of witnessing a violent crime.

Where the typical criminal injuries time limit for victims of violent crime is two years, this can be lifted in cases of historical abuse.

You could claim for compensation if you suffer an accident due to negligence. For example, if you have fallen over from tripping on a hazard that has not been properly maintained or you have slipped on an unmarked wet patch of floor, you could claim against the company responsible for the premises. If you have tripped while walking on a poorly maintained pavement or slipped on a patch of ice that should’ve been gritted then you could claim against the local authority responsible for maintaining roads and pavements. However, for slips on patches of ice, there may be a specific criteria which needs to be met in order to make a valid claim depending on where you slipped. For example, in a town centre or a supermarket carpark. You can find more information on these types of injury claims on our website.
