How Do Conditional Fee Agreements Work?
Whether you’re looking to make a rental deposit dispute claim or you’ve had an accident in Basingstoke that was not your fault, you could make a compensation claim with no money required upfront if you use no win no fee solicitors covering Basingstoke for your claim. This would involve the signing of a Conditional Fee Agreement, also known as a ‘CFA’.
This agreement lays out the conditions of your claim and shows what your personal injury lawyer or financial mis selling claim lawyer would take from your settlement for the legal services they’ve provided to you. This is usually a percentage amount and is capped at 25% of the compensation settlement. Once your claim has been successful in gaining a settlement, the lawyer’s fees would be taken from the settlement.
Making claims with solicitors covering Basingstoke without money required upfront could be of huge benefit. Sometimes, the reason you’re making a claim is because you could have been left out of pocket, so not having to find extra money to claim what you’re entitled to could be a huge relief. In addition to this, claiming in this manner could reduce your risk, financially.
Below, we look at different types of claims that could be made with a solicitor.

There are many different types of injury you could suffer in a road accident in Basingstoke. Whether you have suffered broken bones, whiplash or head injuries, compensation could not only help you with those out-of-pocket costs you could have suffered, such as income loss, care costs or medical expenses, but it could also be used for the suffering and pain caused by your injuries.
It does not matter whether you were on a motorbike, in a van, lorry, bus, car or coach, or even if you were a pedestrian or other road user. If an accident was caused by someone else, you could claim compensation for your injuries with the help of a solicitor from our panel covering Basingstoke – even if the driver couldn’t be traced or wasn’t insured.

If you’ve been in an accident in Basingstoke at work, and it could have been avoided if your employer had taken steps to protect your health and safety, then they could be held liable for a work injury compensation claim.
Incidents that could lead to claims such as:
- You injured your back because you weren’t told how to lift properly by your employer and you lifted something incorrectly.
- Items fell from warehouse racking because they were not properly stacked, injuring you.
- You slipped on a wet spill on the floor that wasn’t signposted or cleared up.
- You were trapped in machinery because the safety guard was missing.
- A poorly maintained piece of equipment malfunctioned, causing you injury.
While all the above examples may seem clear as to who would be at fault, there could be incidents that are not so clear, and having a solicitor on your side for your claim could be invaluable in these instances, as they could bring prior experience to your claim, which could help them build a strong argument for compensation.
This is not the only type of work claim you could make, however. The above are all one-off incidents, but what if you developed a work-related condition or injury that came on over time? If your employer failed to protect you from known risks of you developing the condition or injury, and you went on to develop it, your employer could be held liable. Some work-related conditions could include:
- Work-related dermatitis
- Deafness (Industrial)
- Vibration white finger
- And more…
If you’re unsure as to whether your condition could lead to a claim, why not call us for advice?
Another thing that might interest you about work-related claims is that your employer is not allowed to treat you any differently because of your claim. If they do, there is legislation to protect you. Our expert panel could help with claiming compensation for constructive or unfair dismissal too, in the unlikely event that you find yourself in that kind of position.
Were you injured in the pool on holiday because of broken tiles? Or did you fall ill while you were away because of questionable hygiene practices in the hotel restaurant? Did you fall on the steps of the aircraft because they were faulty or were you served food you were allergic to on the plane, despite telling staff about your allergies?
There are various laws and regulations that could come into play with holiday accident claims. Some holidays would be covered under the Package Travel Regulations providing the accident occurred on an arrangement provided by the operator. Some flights could be covered by IATA, whereas some hotel incidents could be covered by foreign laws if you booked your holiday independently. The law you’re claiming under might have an effect on the personal injury claims time limit that could apply to your case, so it might be worth speaking to a legal representative for advice on how long you’d have to claim.
Claims you could make for holiday compensation could include:
- Holiday illness
- Aircraft accidents (from plane crashes to hot drink spillages and being hit by luggage)
- Airport transfer accidents
- Hotel accidents (at the swimming pool, in the restaurant etc.)
- Booked excursion accidents
If you’d like advice specific to your situation, why not call our team – we’ll be happy to advise you on your circumstances.
In Basingstoke Centre, between October 2018 and September 2019, there were 1,060 incidents of violent and sexual offences reported to the police were reported to police. If you have been attacked or assaulted, whether physically or sexually, you could claim compensation with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Claims could be made by victims of assault, those who intervene to stop crimes from taking place and those traumatised by witnessing this type of event. The CICA claims time limit is generally shorter than some personal injury claims, at 2 years from the crime date.
Sexual Assault Of A Historic Nature
But what if you were a victim of sexual assault/abuse when you were younger and it has been longer than two years before you felt comfortable to talk about it and report it? In some cases, you could still make a claim, as it could be highlighted that you did not have the emotional capacity to claim as you could have been suffering from trauma.
If you have a claim of this nature, please do be aware that we will treat it with the utmost sensitivity, as we know there could still be a lot of trauma surrounding such a claim.
There are other accident claims that could happen in Basingstoke that don’t fit into the categories above.

If you were mis sold a pension or an investment, you could consider the assistance of a legal practitioner to guide you through the claims process. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has stipulated that the selling of financial products should be fair and you should be given all the relevant information before you make your decision. You should also not be pressured into coming to a decision, and your suitability for the product should be ensured.
If you have been a victim of mis selling and you have been made financially worse off because of this, then you could claim compensation.

Was your deposit protected by your landlord? Did they let you know in which scheme they protected it? If the answer is “no” or a landlord has withheld your deposit unlawfully then you could be entitled to claim compensation for between 1 and 3 times the original deposit amount.
Your landlord must follow correct procedures when safeguarding your deposit to ensure that it cannot be unfairly deducted or withheld without a valid reason. When you pay a deposit for a property, it must be protected by a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) within the first 30 days of payment. Once this has been done, your landlord must:
- Provide you with information about the scheme within the first 30 days
- Return your deposit at the end of your tenancy, providing you have met the requirements of your contract.
If your house or flat is not in a good state of repair, you may have let your landlord know and they should have fixed the issues for you. This could include, damp, mould, broken flooring, windows or doors. If they haven’t fixed the disrepair, this may cause you problems, which could include:
- Personal injury from broken items causing cuts
- Faulty boiler causing burns
- Carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty boiler
- Illness from damp or mould
- Higher energy bills from leaky pipes or faulty energy supply
- Damage to your own belongings
If any of these things have happened to you, despite you asking the landlord to fix the disrepair and following the correct process, then solicitors from our panel could help you to make claims for compensation for personal injury and financial losses in Basingstoke.
