What Do No Win No Fee Solicitors Do?
Before you decide to make your claim through one of the solicitors from our panel covering Cardiff, you may wish to learn more about what a no win no fee agreement is and what solicitors do under said agreement.
No win no fee solicitors help people to claim compensation from another party if they have been injured, become sick, lost out financially or otherwise have been harmed by a negligent party. For example, a personal injury solicitor may help someone injured in a Cardiff bus accident to claim compensation for their injuries.

As the claimant you may have been the driver of a private or public transport vehicle, a passenger or crossing the road as a pedestrian. The mode of transport involved does not affect your ability to claim. What is important is being able to show that another road user was responsible (or partially responsible) for your accident.
We recommend that claimants involved in road traffic accidents collect as much evidence as they can to support their claim. This may include evidence from the scene of the accident, such as footage from a dash-cam or CCTV, photos of the accident and your injuries, and contact details from witnesses. Medical evidence may also form an important part of your claim, therefore it is important that you see a GP, paramedic or hospital as required.
Examples of common injuries caused by road accidents may include:
- Breaks and fractures.
- Soft tissue injuries such as cuts, lacerations and strains – including whiplash.
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries.
- Injuries to the back and the spine.
Whether operating in the public or private sector, all medical professionals in the UK have a serious duty of care to their patients. They are held to specific ethical standards and codes of practice, such as the General Medical Council issues ethical guidelines for doctors. In essence, the priority should always be the well-being of a patient and all care should be taken to avoid causing unnecessary harm to them. It is ofcourse recognised that some course of treatment, such as chemotherapy, may have negative side effects. As long as these are fully explained to a patient, there is not grounds to claim for the side effects of this.
Despite ethical guidelines and professional standards which medical staff are expected to meet, there are occasions where these are not met. In such instances, a patient could suffer avoidable harm and this may be considered medical negligence in Cardiff.

- Mistakes or errors due to negligent surgery.
