Finding A No Win No Fee Solicitor
Finding a no win no fee solicitor couldn’t be easier when you use our service. All you have to do is call our advisors, and if you’re eligible to claim, then we could offer to connect you with an appropriate solicitor from our panel to help with your case.
But How Do I Pay My No Win No Fee Solicitor?
No win no fee claims are usually handled under a Conditional Fee Agreement, a document that sets out the conditions that must be met for your solicitor to be paid a ‘success fee’ which is usually a percentage of your final compensation settlement. This percentage is capped at 25% and is negotiated by both you and your solicitor at the beginning of the claims process.
There are no upfront fees needed to retain the services of a no win no fee solicitor. This could be of real benefit to some claimants, especially as they may have already been financially disadvantaged by what has happened to them. It also means there is less financial risk when making a claim in this way. For more information regarding the benefits of a no win no fee agreement, why not give us a call?

Whatever road traffic accident in Cornwall you’ve been injured in, if it was not your fault then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. Drivers have a responsibility to use the road in a safe manner, and if they are negligent or behave recklessly on the road, causing injuries to other people, then those injured parties could claim not just for the injuries they’ve received, but also for the financial impact such injuries have had on them, whether that is a loss of earnings, prescription costs or more.

Has your deposit been protected in the right manner? Deposits made after April 2007 must be protected by the landlord that rents you your property. There are government-approved schemes that exist for this purpose. Your landlord should place your deposit it a scheme within 30 days of it being given to them, and they should also put the details in writing to you.
If they don’t or they unlawfully hold your deposit, one course of action you could take would be to contact us to see if we could help you with a tenancy deposit compensation claim. If you’re wondering how much compensation could be claimed, it may interest you to know that claims are usually settled at between 1 and 3 times the deposit amount.
If you’d like to know more about making this type of claim, do not hesitate to get in touch with our team. We’d be happy to help you.
