Conditional Fee Agreement Information?
One advantage of a conditional fee agreement is that a claimant could begin their claim immediately without needing to find the necessary monies upfront in order to use the services of a solicitor. It is our belief that this type of arrangement offers a reduced financial risk to claimants. A conditional fee agreement is a document that is signed by you, the claimant, and your no win no fee solicitor at the start of the claims process. It contains details of the fee that your solicitor will receive in the event of a successful compensation claim. Usually, this is a percentage of the amount of the settlement. These fees are subtracted from the settlement figure when the claim is concluded. A further benefit from using a no win no fee agreement is that if your claim is not successful, you will not need to pay your solicitors fees. For a more in-depth look at no win no fee solicitors please read here. We will now give you some information about some of the claims that a no win no fee solicitor may be able to assist you with.

Whilst it may appear that there are fewer accidents occurring on our roads than previous years, government statistics for 2018 indicate that in 2018 over 160,000 casualties of all severities occurred as a result of road traffic accidents in the UK. Whilst they do point out that this figure is the lowest recorded, it does indicate that it is not uncommon for someone to be injured in a road traffic accident as a result of third party negligence.

- Care home negligence – Staff may have neglected to give medication or mismanaged bedsores, causing problems with your health.
- Hospital negligence – Did a hospital misdiagnose you? Did you have treatment that you did not require? Did your original condition worsen? Did poor sanitation cause you to contract an infection?
- Dentist negligence – Was one of your healthy teeth damaged by a dentist whilst treating you? Was the wrong tooth removed?
- GP negligence – Did your GP prescribe the wrong medication? Did this result in adverse side effects? Was your diagnosis delayed meaning that you suffered longer than necessary?
- Childbirth negligence – Were signs of a medical condition missed by your midwife during your pregnancy? Did this cause harm to you or your baby? Was your labour not monitored properly causing harm to either you or your baby?
These are just some examples of cases that could lead to a payout for medical negligence compensation. Contact us to see if one of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Cheshunt could help you.
It doesn’t matter what type of industry you are employed in, your employer has a duty of care, by way of the law, to take care of your health and safety. There are a number of ways that they could work to do this including:
- Completing regular risk assessments and acting on any findings.
- Ensuring that you have the correct safety equipment to do your job properly and safely.
- Ensuring that maintenance is carried out on any provided equipment and things are replaced when necessary.
- Ensuring that they reduce foreseeable risk in the workplace by whatever means they can.
The actions that your employer should take will depend on the type of environment you work in and also the job that you do. For example, the risks associated with working on a construction site are very different from those encountered in an office environment.

Sadly, from October 2018 to September 2019, 980 offences were reported to the police that were violent or sexual in Cheshunt East. There were also 572 offences of this type reported in Cheshunt West. If you have been a victim of such a crime, you could be entitled to make a claim for criminal injury compensation.
The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government scheme that has been set up in order for those who have suffered as a result of someone else violent actions. A no win no fee solicitor from our panel may be able to help you with this. However, you may need to act quickly because in some cases, a 2-year time limit from the date the criminal incident took place exists. There are, however, exceptions to this, one of which we have discussed below.
Sexual Abuse Limitation Period
In the case of sexual abuse cases where the abuse took place years ago, exceptions to the CICA claim time limit could be made. This is because the victims of abuse may not report it when it occurs because they were unable to process the details of what has taken place until much later. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out if this might apply to your circumstances.

According to the Financial Conduct Authority FCA, both financial institutions and advisors are required to practice fair selling techniques. This means that they should not sell you a product or a service that is not suitable for your needs, you should not be pressured into purchasing any product or service and that you should be advised of any risks, charges and fees that are associated with the product or service. If you believe that you have been mis sold a financial service or product, such as a pension or annuity then you could make a claim for compensation.

Did you know that your landlord is required to place your deposit in a recognised protection scheme and also advise you where it has been placed? If they have not done this, or not informed you of where it is held then you may be able to pursue a claim for compensation. Your landlord is also required to return your rental deposit within a 10-day period of you agreeing on the amount that is to be returned. A successful claim for a tenancy deposit could lead to you receiving an amount that is anywhere between the rental deposit you paid and triple that amount in compensation.
