How To Make A No Win No Fee Compensation Claim
A no win no fee solicitor can help reduce some of the financial strain that can be related to seeking legal assistance. When a solicitor takes on a case under this type of agreement, they enter into a conditional fee agreement. The agreement states that if the solicitor loses the case, you (the claimant) will not have to pay for the solicitor’s personal legal fees.
If the solicitor wins the case, their personal legal fees are covered by compensation awarded to the claimant. All fees and possible additional costs should be discussed and agreed upon between you and your solicitor before proceeding with a claim. It is important to note that a no win no fee solicitor’s personal legal fees are capped at 25% of the compensation awarded.

Over 160,000 casualties caused by road traffic accidents (RTAs) were reported on British roads in 2018. An RTA can happen to any person that uses the road. For example, a cyclist could be injured following a collision with a vehicle, two vehicles could be involved in a collision, injuring the drivers or passengers, or a pedestrian could be hit by a vehicle or cyclist, resulting in injury. If you were injured by an accident on the road and can prove that it was not your fault, a personal injury lawyer could help you win compensation.
RTAs can cause all kinds of injuries, such as broken bones, lacerations, whiplash, internal injuries and more. Of these, whiplash is one of the most common, and we even have a specific article here that gives more information on making claims for whiplash injuries. If you have been injured by an accident on the road that wasn’t your fault, contact our advisors today to find out how we could help you make a motor accident claim.
Clinical negligence claims are made when a medical professional makes a mistake or neglects their duty as a care giver, resulting in harming their patient through injury or making an illness worse that could have otherwise been avoided. Claims can be made if you can prove you have been harmed by a medical professional through neglect care, where their actions caused avoidable injuries you or made your condition worse.
Examples of medical negligence can include a surgeon making a mistake during surgery, which results in injury, or a GP misdiagnosing an illness, or treating an illness incorrectly, which can make symptoms worse. It can even include excessive damage caused by a dentist while extracting teeth which could have been prevented. If you have been in the care of a medical professional and you feel that their actions have injured you unnecessarily, or made an existing condition worse, you could be entitled to claim for clinical negligence.
Picking up an injury in the workplace can be extremely disruptive. It can stop you from working or make working very difficult, which can result in having to take time off and lead to a loss of earnings. It can be made even worse if the accident that caused your injury was not your fault and was instead the result of someone else’s mistake or negligence. Your employer has a duty of care to every person they employ to ensure that the workplace is safe for everyone to work in. If they fail in this duty, the employer or their insurers could be liable to pay compensation.
You may be eligible for compensation from your employer if you have been injured in an accident at work that could have been avoided. Some examples include:
- Not being informed of correct methods of manual handling or health and safety practices, which then resulted in injury, e.g. you weren’t informed of the correct methods for heavy lifting and picked up a back injury as a result.
- Your employer failed to appropriately ventilate spaces that handle hazardous materials and you developed a long-term pulmonary illness as a result.
- Equipment was not maintained correctly and injured you when it broke or malfunctioned.
There are many different examples of possible workplace injuries. If you feel like an injury at work was caused by an accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible for compensation. It is important to note here that your employer cannot dismiss you or treat you any differently for making a claim at work, whether you win or lose. Contact our advisors today to see how we could help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you have been injured in an accident abroad or while on holiday in the UK that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make a no win no fee holiday accident claim. You could also be entitled to claim for financial loss incurred through having to reschedule a cancelled or delayed flight. If this has happened to you and you can prove the injury or financial loss was not your fault, you could be eligible for compensation.
Negligent accidents causing injury could happen in a hotel, in the airport, on public transport or while on an excursion. However, the law can vary depending on how you have booked your holiday. For example, if you have booked a package holiday through a travel agent based in the UK, your case would be handled under UK law providing the negligent accident was suffered on an entity provided by the package holiday. Otherwise, if you have made your own arrangements, your case would be handled under the law of the country the accident happened in. Contact our advisors today for more information and to see if you could have grounds for a claim.
Claims made for injuries resulting from a violent crime or sexual assault are handled through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). These cases can carry a different claims time limit than other cases, particularly in cases of sexual abuse, so we advise you to contact our advisors today for more precise information on your individual claim.
Criminal injuries are caused by a violent crime, such as assault, domestic violence, mugging, etc. Injuries from these crimes can include psychological trauma from witnessing an attack on someone else, as well as injuries from being physically attacked yourself.
Sexual assault and rape claims are also made through CICA and can be recent or cases of historical sexual abuse. In cases of historical sexual abuse, the claims time limits could possibly be suspended, due to the nature of the case.
Other personal injury claims you could make can include injuries or illnesses caused by third parties, such as local councils, business owners and those who are responsible for public spaces who are legally required to ensure these spaces are safe to inhabit. This responsibility also extends to food establishments who are required to ensure any food or drink they sell is correctly labelled and meets food safety standards.
If you have been injured by a preventable issue in a public space, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Examples include:
- Unsteady displays in a supermarket that fall and injure customers.
- Food poisoning caused by incorrectly handled or cooked food.
- An allergic reaction contracted from incorrectly labelled food products.
- A loose rail on a child’s climbing frame in a local park or school that results in an injury to a child.
- Slips, trips or falls caused by obstructions in public walkways or shop floors that have injured you.
If you have been injured or made ill and a third party is to blame, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact our claims team today to find out more.
When a customer approaches a bank or Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) to purchase a financial product, the financial advisor is required by law to supply all the relevant information that their customer needs to enable them to buy a product that best fits their needs. In some cases, however, a bank or IFA may still seek to mislead a customer in order to make the most profit, even if this leads to the customer getting the wrong product or putting their money at risk.
If you have been a victim of financial product mis selling, and you have suffered financially as a result, the bank or IFA that served you could be liable to pay you compensation. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Crewe could assist in a financial mis selling compensation claim. Contact our team today to see if you have grounds for a claim.
When you rent property from a private landlord, a local housing authority or letting agent, you have responsibilities as a tenant to ensure no damage comes to the property and that you honour the tenancy agreement set out between you and your landlord. Similarly, your landlord also has responsibilities. One of these responsibilities is related to the tenancy deposit they collect from you at the beginning of your tenancy.
Your landlord is legally required to enter your deposit into an approved deposit protection scheme and supply you with information on their chosen scheme within thirty days of receiving the deposit. They must protect this deposit throughout the duration of your tenancy and they must return it to you when your tenancy ends (if you have fulfilled all of your duties as a tenant).
If they fail to protect your deposit or refuse to return it to you without a clear cause at the end of your tenancy, you could make a claim against them. The Shelter website outlines your rights as a tenant and could help you decide if your deposit was not protected or wrongfully withheld from you. Contact us today for free, no obligation advice on pursuing a claim against your landlord.
Another responsibility your private landlord, housing authority or letting agent have as landlords is to ensure the property you are renting is in a habitable condition. This means that the property must be free of any problems that could injure or cause illness to the tenant. These problems can include faulty windows and doors that let in drafts and may cause illness. It can include uneven or damaged surfaces that could cause falls or trips, mouldy surfaces that could cause respiratory illnesses, or even exposed wiring that could lead to electrocution.
There is a protocol to be followed with your landlord before you consider taking legal action for housing disrepair. If you become injured or lose out financially because your landlord had not rectified the disrepair you may have grounds for a compensation claim. If they refuse to rectify the issues, you should then follow the protocol outlined on the Justice website. If the issues are still not resolved, you could then have grounds to proceed with a claim for compensation. Contact our advisors today to find out if you are in a position to make a claim.
We hope that the above guide has given you as much information as you need to decide if you would like to proceed with a claim.
