How To Claim With A No Win No Fee Solicitor
If you’re looking to make a claim with no win no fee solicitors covering the City of Westminster, then one simple call to our team could start the ball rolling. But before you call us, why not read a little more about what no win no fee lawyers do, and how they take payment for their services.
When it comes to instructing a no win no fee solicitor, you would be presented with a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) which you would need to sign to begin your claim. This CFA covers the details of the ‘success fee’ your lawyer would be looking to take from your settlement in the event that they successfully obtained compensation for you. The amount they can deduct from your payout cannot be more than 25%, due to the government cap.
Once your claim has begun, your solicitor would build an argument for you to receive compensation from the liable party. If your case is successful, your solicitor would then be entitled to claim their ‘success fee’ from your compensation, before forwarding your settlement figure on to you. Should a valid claim be unsuccessful, then according to the terms of the agreement, you would not have to pay such a success fee. Now we’ve explained how such claims could work, let us look at what kinds of cases our panel of solicitors covering Westminster could take on.

Whether you’ve been in a Westminster car accident or have been injured as a pedestrian in a Westminster bridge accident, if it was caused by another road user’s fault, a personal injury solicitor working on a no win no fee basis could fight for compensation on your behalf.

Essentially, if someone else caused an accident on the road and you suffered injuries because of this, you could claim compensation with assistance from a no win no fee solicitor.
From the government’s statistics on road accidents, in 2018, over 160,000 people were injured on the roads of the UK, so you would not be alone in having received injuries from a road accident. However, the nature of the crash and the severity of your injuries could vary wildly from case to case. For example, your whiplash injury could be less severe and not as long-lasting as a severe back injury. If you would like a rough estimate of how much compensation the injuries that you sustained in the road traffic accident could be worth, then you might be thinking of using a personal injury claims calculator, but if you’d like an estimate based on the specifics of your case, you can call our team of advisors. We could give you a rough estimate based on the Judicial College’s guidelines for settlement amounts.
Are you considering making a claim for medical negligence compensation? If so, you might wish to consider using a no win no fee solicitor to make such claims. Medical malpractice could be complex in nature, and there could be a lot of paperwork involved in proving that your medical condition would have been better if negligence had not occurred. To have someone experienced in taking on cases like yours could make claiming less stressful, as your solicitor would know how to build a case, what evidence would be required and how to obtain such evidence. This could take the stress of claiming from your shoulders.
But, what types of claims could our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering the City of Westminster handle? Let us take a look:
- Care home negligence claims – these could include bedsore mismanagement, incorrect medicine dispensed, neglect, etc
- Surgical negligence claims – these could include ineffective anaesthesia, wrong body part treated, and more…
- GP negligence claims – these could include late diagnosis, wrong prescriptions, and misdiagnosis, etc
- Dental negligence claims – these could include negligent dental advice, damaging a healthy tooth, wrong tooth extraction, etc…

Did you suffer an injury at work in a preventable accident? If so, you may be asking ‘I was injured at work, was it my employer’s fault?’ An employer has a duty of care to you as an employee. They should assess and reduce risks as much as could be considered reasonable. There are lots of different ways they could do this. The actions they could take could depend on the type of work involved and the workplace environment itself. Some examples could include:
- Ensuring relevant training in safe operation of machinery is given
- Ensuring PPE is given
- Ensuring the workplace is free of foreseeable hazards
- Ensuring appropriate safety signage is in place
- Ensuring that you are supervised where necessary
- Ensuring that machinery is tested and repaired when necessary
- And more…
If your employer does not actively take care of your health and safety and you suffer an injury in an accident that could have been avoided if your employer had acted responsibly, then you could be eligible to make a claim.
Other claims that you could make against an employer could include cases where their negligence has led to you obtaining a work-related illness or condition, such as mesothelioma, repetitive strain injury, Industrial deafness, tendonitis and more. These conditions could have long-term effects on you, and could, in some cases, mean you are not able to do your job any longer. A claim for such a condition could take this into account and you may be able to claim for future loss of earnings as well as the suffering and pain that you are/or have been going through.

This could not only affect the way your claim is handled, but also the personal injury claims time limit that applies to your case.

In Little Venice, between November 2018 and October 2019, 233 reports of sexual/violent offences were reported to the police. If you suffered due to the actions of a violent criminal, then you could claim compensation for your injuries.
Compensation for violent crime would usually be claimed for through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA). This government authority has been put in place to compensate victims of violent crime in the UK. The time limit for CICA claims is usually two years from the crime date, and it should have been reported to the police as soon as reasonably practical. There are, however, some exceptions to this. Claims could be made by victims of crime, those traumatised by witnessing violent crime, or those who have sustained injury attempting to stop a crime.
Sexual Historic Abuse
If you were a victim of abuse as a child and you did not speak out at the time, you may not be alone. Exceptions may be possible to the CICA claims time limit for cases such as this. If you are wondering if you could make a claim of this type, please do not hesitate to call and see if a solicitor from our panel could help with your claim.
