Explaining No Win No Fee Agreements
A no win no fee solicitor agrees to take on a claim under the agreement that if the case is lost, the client they are representing does not have to pay any of their personal injury solicitor’s legal fees. If a claim is successful, the solicitor’s fees are taken from the compensation that was awarded. The amount that your solicitor can take is capped at 25%.

Accidents on the road are becoming more and more common, with 160,597 individual casualties reported in 2018 alone. With statistics like these, it is likely that a road user, careful though they might be, may eventually experience an accident on the road.
Road traffic accidents can happen for many reasons and come in different forms. For example, you could be a cyclist, a pedestrian, a passenger in a vehicle, or even driving the vehicle, and are then involved in a collision. This could lead to a wide range of injuries, including whiplash, broken bones, soft tissue damage or even hospitalisation. Whatever the case, if the accident was not your fault, and you have been harmed physically or psychologically by it, then you could be entitled to make a no win no fee car accident claim.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could help you get compensation for an accident where a third party was at fault. Contact our advisors today to see if they could help you get the compensation you deserve.
You could make a personal injury claim for clinical negligence if you have been in the care of a medical professional, who has failed in their duty of care to you, resulting in an injury, or has made your condition worse. Clinical negligence comes in different forms, including a mistake during surgery, misdiagnosing a condition and treating it incorrectly, or causing further damage while extracting teeth, etc.
In any case, if you feel that your healthcare provider has made a mistake that has harmed you in any way, then you could be eligible for compensation. Making a claim with a personal injury solicitor for clinical negligence can be complicated, which is where our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering the Bedford area could help. They could assist in gathering all the right evidence to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to. Contact an advisor to see how they could help today.
Workplace accidents happen all the time, sometimes it due to a mistake we make, but sometimes it can be because of someone else’s mistakes. If you are injured in work and it wasn’t your fault, our panel no win no fee lawyers covering Bedford could help. Some avoidable workplace accidents include:
- Being injured because you were not trained properly in the use of specialist equipment.
- There were no health and safety regulations outlined to you and you were injured as a result, e.g. got a back injury from lifting heavy boxes incorrectly.
- You contracted a long-term illness due to a poorly ventilated work environment that handles hazardous materials.
- Being asked to use badly maintained or faulty equipment that resulted in an injury when it malfunctioned.
These are only examples of what can be regarded as an accident that was caused by your employer’s negligence. It is important to note that your employer has a duty of care to you and must ensure that are working in safe conditions. If you feel that an injury or illness you have picked up in work is due to a lapse in your employer’s responsibility to you, then you could be entitled to claim.
Your employer cannot dismiss you for making a claim against them or their insurance, as it would be regarded as unfair dismissal. So, there is nothing to fear by considering taking out a claim, because win or lose, they are required by law to treat you the same as any other employee. Contact our advisors today to get more guidance on taking out a claim against your employer.
Holidays could be one of the worst times to experience an accident, but if you do, and it wasn’t your fault, you might be eligible for an awarded settlement. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors have experience with international law, so whether your accident happened here in the UK, or abroad, they could help you.
Accidents can happen in many different places while you’re on holiday. They can happen in the hotel, in the airport, on public transport, on a cruise ship, etc. The law is different depending on if you have booked a holiday package or if you have made your own arrangements, but a personal injury lawyer can make it easy for you, and make sure your case is handled correctly.
Being the victim of a violent crime can have devastating consequences for most people. While compensation may not undo what happened, it can help in relieving stress during times of healing and recovery. Cases that involve violent crimes are made through a government-backed scheme called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Criminal injuries can include assault, being mugged, being robbed or a burglary that resulted in injury. Your injuries can also include emotional or mental trauma from witnessing an event. For these types of criminal injury claims, it is important that you can provide evidence to show where the incident happened, who is to blame for harming you, and a record of the extent of your injuries at the time. You do have to report the incident to the police, but the success of your claim does not rely on a guilty verdict in court.
Cases of sexual assault, rape, etc. are also handled through CICA. Compensation for these claims includes physical injuries as well as psychological trauma. Cases can be recent as well as historical.
Claims handled through CICA could have a shorter claim time limit, but there are exceptions for certain cases, so we recommend getting in touch with our advisors to see what time limit may apply to your unique case.
There are many other types of personal injury claims that could be covered by our panel of no win no fee solicitors. These can include a slip, trip or fall in a public area or walkway; an accident in a supermarket where a display or shelving came loose and injured you; accidents that your children have been hurt by and it was not their fault, or even having an allergic reaction to food that was incorrectly labelled.
If you have been harmed in some way and you have evidence to show that it was not your fault, then you could be entitled to compensation. If you are unsure or want to know more about potentially making a claim, contact our advisors to find out what our panel of solicitors covering Bedford can do for you.
Buying a pension plan or financial product can be a complicated process, and your bank or Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) are legally obliged to provide you with all the information you need to get the right product for you. In some cases, a bank or IFA can intentionally mis sell a financial product to gain more profit, even though this product might not match the customer’s needs, or even put their customer’s money at risk.
If you feel like you have been mis sold a pension or financial product, and have suffered financially as a result, you might be eligible to claim compensation. Our claims advisors may be able to help you determine if you have a claim, and if so, could connect you with one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors to help you get the compensation you deserve.
At the beginning of a shorthold tenancy in a rented property, your landlord will usually collect a tenancy deposit. This deposit protects the landlord in the event of a violation of tenancy agreement or damage to their property caused by the tenant. Your landlord has a legal responsibility to enter this deposit into an approved protection scheme and must do so within 30 days of receiving your deposit. Your landlord must also share the information on the scheme they used. If they fail to do this, or you later lose your deposit as a result of their negligence, you could be eligible to claim compensation. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could help you get the compensation you may be entitled to. Feel free to see this link to the Shelter website for more information.
Understanding your rights as a tenant of rented accommodation is important. Your landlord, letting agency or housing authority has responsibilities toward you, and these responsibilities include ensuring that the property you’re living in remains in a habitable condition. But what do uninhabitable living conditions entail? Possible housing disrepair cases can include:
- Exposed electrical wiring resulting in avoidable electrocution.
- Damaged flooring and uneven surfaces causing injuries.
- Mould on walls or ceilings resulting in undue illnesses.
The above are only examples of things that can make a property uninhabitable, and it is the property owners’ responsibility to ensure these issues are handled as soon as possible. If you live in a property with similar issues, that have caused you to become ill or injured and your landlord has refused to fix them, you could be entitled to compensation. There is a protocol that should be followed before you can make a claim, which is outlined on the Justice website. If you have followed this protocol and feel like you would like to make a claim, our panel of no win no fee housing solicitors could help.
The guide above aims to provide you with information you might need to help you decide if you would like to make a claim through our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Bedford.
