Are you considering whether or not you may have a valid claim for compensation? Are you put off making a claim by the thought that you’d need to pay your lawyer first before they took on your case? If this is you, then you should not worry about these assumptions. At No Win No Fee Expert, we work with a panel of solicitors covering Bracknell to take on your claim without requiring upfront costs. By using their services, you could begin a personal injury claim or financial compensation claim right away without having to pay monies upfront.
In the guide below, we will explain how this payment structure works, as well as go through some of the claims you could make with our panel. If anything isn’t as clear as you’d like it to be or you’re already ready to make a claim, call 0800 073 8802 and we could set you on the right path.
How Do Conditional Fee Agreements Work?
If you make a no win no fee claim, you would have to sign a conditional fee agreement with your solicitor. This agreement is a detailed document which outlines what the conditions are for the lawyer’s fees to be paid, and the level they should be paid at. Fees within a CFA are usually in percentage form. The highest percentage a lawyer could take as fees from your settlement is 25% but some lawyers may charge less.
Once the agreement has been signed, the lawyer would then fight your claim, then once a settlement had been made, they would deduct the percentage promised to them and you would benefit from the balance. This means no upfront payment, and could mean less financial risk for you too.

If you wish to make a claim for compensation for any injuries that happened on the road, you may not be alone. In fact, over 25,511 serious injuries in road traffic accidents on UK roads were reported to the police in 2018.
Were you looking into securing compensation for a road accident claim? Were you hurt on the roads due to someone else’s mistakes? Were people you depended on fatally injured and you want to know if you could claim compensation for road accident victims’ family members? If so, we could provide a solicitor from our panel to take on your accident claim.
No matter whether you escaped with just whiplash, or a simple fracture, you could be entitled to claim for compensation if the accident that caused it was not your fault. You could make claims as a passenger, a driver, a pedestrian, a cyclist, a motorcyclist or anyone using the road. You could still even claim compensation should the person that caused the incident did not stop and can’t be traced or if they weren’t insured.
Unfortunately, it could be possible for someone to suffer ill-health, injury or even die because of medical negligence. Your healthcare staff have a duty to protect your health as much as they can, and if they are negligent, and you suffer because of the negligence, then you might be able to make a claim for compensation. If we were to give one piece of clinical negligence advice, it would be to consider using a legal representative for this type of claim, rather than going it alone. This is because medical negligence claims could be quite complex to prove, and someone experienced in proving such claims could be of real value to you at a time when you may be confused as to the legalities of your claim.
What types of medical negligence claims could a person make?
You could make a claim for compensation for negligence causing harm in any one of the following places
- In hospital – Surgical negligence, doctor negligence, A&E negligence, midwife negligence, hospital infection, blood test negligence, etc.
- At the GP – Misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, prescription error, etc.
- At the Dentist – Negligent advice, broken tooth, the wrong tooth removed, etc.
- In a care home – Bed sore negligence, prescription negligence, etc.
- And more…
If you’re looking for an employment solicitor handling Bracknell claims, you might wish to consider using a solicitor from our panel. You may have been out of pocket because you lost earnings recovering from a work injury or illness. It could therefore make sense to make a claim under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) for personal injury claims against your employer – as this means you would not have to make a payment upfront to your lawyer.
Employment law solicitors can deal with cases of industrial disease. This could be a long-term condition and in some cases, you may not ever get rid of it. Asbestosis, workplace deafness and mesothelioma, for example, could come under this category. There are also conditions that you might have a good chance of recovering from such as tendonitis, RSI and suchlike. However, if they were caused because your employer did not reduce risks of you developing such a condition, a legal expert from our panel could help you make claims against such an employer for not just the financial loss of income (if you did lose out on pay) but also any suffering you’ve experienced because of the condition.
Other workplace-related claims could involve accidents that happen at work because of health and safety failings, causing you an injury/injuries. Your employer, as with work-related conditions, must take steps to ensure you are in a safe working environment. If they don’t and you become injured, you could make a claim for compensation. Accidents of this type could include:
- Burns because your employer has not provided you with gloves for handling chemicals
- Slips because your employer has not properly ensured the floors are free from slip hazards
- Crushes because there were no stacking procedures for stacking shelves and items fell as they were poorly stacked
- Being run over in a loading bay as there was no clear signage as to where it was safe to walk
- And more…
If you are worried about engaging in an accident claim, it might reassure you to know that legally, your employer cannot treat you differently because you have chosen to make a claim. If they were to do so, they could be acting unlawfully and could be in a lot of trouble. Our panel of solicitors covering Bracknell could put your mind at rest by discussing this with you in further detail.
A legal expert could also give you assistance with a holiday accident compensation claim. Making a claim for holiday accidents could be done alone, without the help of a personal injury lawyer, but you may find this a little complex as there are various laws and regulations that could govern where your personal injury claims could be made and who they could be made against.
You could make some claims under the Package Travel Regulations, some under the Montreal Convention, some under UK law and some under the laws of the country you were injured in. Experienced solicitors covering Bracknell from our panel could help ascertain who you would be claiming against and what regulations were relevant to your claim, allowing you to concentrate on your recovery and letting them do the work of putting the claim together for you.
But What Kind Of Holiday Claims Could Be Made?
Any type of illness or injury that is someone else’s fault could lead to a claim if there is a liable party. Holiday accident claims could include:
Accidents That Happen At Airports – this could include slips and falls, burns, trips, burn injuries, crush injuries and more.
Accidents That Happen On A Place – Whether you were injured embarking/disembarking the aircraft, or while in-flight, if it was someone else’s fault, then you could make a claim.
Accidents That Happen At Your Hotel -These could include balcony accidents, elevator accidents, food poisoning, and more.
Accidents While On A Planned Excursion Or On An Airport Transfer – Slips and falls, coach accidents and more could lead to claims.
Whatever type of holiday accident you’ve experienced, if it was someone else’s fault and you were within the required personal injury claims time limit you could make a claim for compensation.
Unfortunately, criminal activities do happen across the UK. In Bracknell town centre between November 2018 and October 2019, 118 violent and sexual offences were reported to the police. Should you have been an assault victim and suffered injuries, both mental and/or physical, suffered mental harm from witnessing criminal behaviour, or you were injured when you were attempting to halt a crime in progress, if the incident was reported to the police, a Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) claim could follow. Assault compensation amounts could vary, but a personal injury solicitor could give you some idea of how much you might be able to claim.
What If Historical Sexual Abuse Was Not Reported At The Time?
If you have been in the position where you suffered sexual abuse when you were much younger and you have only just begun to come to terms with it, but you have not reported it to the police, you might assume you would not be able to make a claim. However, this may not be the case. In some cases, exceptions to the 2-year CICA personal injury claims time limit could be given, and historic abuse could come under these exceptions. Please do call us to see if you could claim the compensation you deserve. We would be glad to help you.
Of course, there are lots of other types of accidents that could happen that might lead to you seeking the services of no win no fee solicitors covering Bracknell. These could include:
- Food allergy claims
- Claims for slips and trips, or falls
- Public liability claims
- Faulty product injury claims
In essence, if someone else was at fault for an accident, you were injured, and third-party liability could be proven, then you could make a compensation claim.
According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), advisors for financial products should offer their clients the most suitable product for their needs. However, if you have not been offered the most suitable product, or you were not given all the information you needed to make a well-informed decision on the product, then you could claim compensation with the assistance of a financial solicitor.
