What Does No Win No Fee Mean?
“What does no win no fee mean?” is a common question we get here at No Win No Fee Expert. A no win no fee solicitor operates under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) which means that if a solicitor takes your case, but does not win, you are not required to pay for the personal legal fees. This reduces the financial strain many people may associate with claiming through a solicitor.
In the event that your solicitor is successful, they will be entitled to a success fee, which will be deducted from the compensation awarded to you, and this is capped at a maximum of 25% of the amount awarded. Any fees or possible additional charges should be discussed with your solicitor before you move forward to make a claim. For more information on working with a no win no fee solicitor, see our handy guide here.

Have you been injured in a road traffic accident in Dewsbury that wasn’t your fault? With more than 160,000 casualties on British roads in 2018 alone, it could be possible. You could have grounds to make a claim for compensation if the accident injured you and was not your fault. A Road Traffic Accident (RTA) can involve any person that uses the road, such as a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, driver in a vehicle, etc. For example, a traffic accident could be caused by a driver running a red light, colliding with another vehicle, and injuring its passengers.
Common injuries caused by RTAs can include broken bones, internal injuries, whiplash, etc. Claims can also be made in cases where being involved in an accident has caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). If you can prove that the accident caused your injuries, and was through the fault of a third party, then a personal injury lawyer could help you make a claim.
Our panel of medical negligence solicitors covering Dewsbury handle cases where a medical professional has failed to uphold their duty of care to their patients or clients. It is possible to make a claim for medical negligence if you can prove that your condition was made worse, or your health was harmed as a result of inaction, or mistakes made by the medical professional caring for you.
Examples of cases of medical negligence include:
- A surgeon making a mistake during surgery, causing further, avoidable harm.
- Your GP incorrectly diagnoses an illness, or not treating one correctly, resulting in further illness or a worsened condition.
- A carer in a home fails to appropriately tend to a resident’s bed sores, or makes a mistake with medication, causing further harm or illness.
These are only some examples of medical negligence. To find out if your experience counts as medical negligence, and for more information on what proof you might need, contact our legal team today.
You could make a personal injury claim for an accident at work if you have been injured or made ill through the actions or negligence of your employer. Your employer is obliged to ensure that the work environment for all employees is safe to work in. it is also their responsibility to ensure that every member of staff is appropriately outfitted and trained to complete the tasks they have been hired for.
If they fail to do this, and an employee becomes injured or ill because of this negligence, they could be liable to pay compensation. Examples of avoidable accidents at work can include:
- Developing a respiratory illness from being asked to work with hazardous materials without being given appropriate protective equipment.
- Being injured while using specialist equipment without being given proper training.
- Being injured by something falling from faulty or over-stocked shelving
These are only some examples of the many possible ways you could be injured or made ill in work by the inaction or negligence of your employer. If you can prove that your injury or illness was caused by an accident at work that wasn’t your fault, a personal injury solicitor could help you claim compensation.
Putting in a claim at work should not put your job at risk, as your employer is prevented by law from dismissing you for making a claim, whether you are successful or not. To do so would be classed as unfair dismissal, for which you may be entitled to take legal action. Contact our advisors today to find out if our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Dewsbury could help you make a claim.
Although most holidays can go to plan without any issues, there are some cases where things can go wrong. Flights could be cancelled or delayed costing more money, or accidents could happen causing someone an injury. If either of these have happened to you while you were on holiday, and they were caused by the mistakes of a third party, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim for a delayed flight, or a claim for a holiday accident that caused you injury.
The law can vary depending on how you have booked your holiday, and can often be a complicated process, especially if the case needs to be handled under the law of a foreign country. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors could help you with the process and assist you in making a claim for compensation. Contact our advisors today to see how we could help you.
“Can victims of crime claim compensation?” is a common question people ask. Victims of violent crime, such as assault or sexual abuse can make claims for compensation. These types of claims are made through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Criminal injuries include a physical assault, a robbery or burglary resulting in physical injury, or even Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) caused from witnessing an attack on another person.
Victims of sexual assault or rape can also make a claim through CICA, but some of these claims can have a different time limit.
Unlike the personal injury claims time limit, which is usually 3 years, criminal injury claims handled through CICA can usually have a limit of 2 years, but in cases of historical sexual abuse, it may be longer. For this reason, we advise you to contact our team today to get more accurate information with regards to your individual circumstances.
There are many other cases where a person might be entitled to claim for compensation. If you are injured in a public space where a third party had a duty of care to keep the public safe, then they could be liable to compensate you.
Some examples include:
- Cracked, or uneven walkways, that a local council are responsible for, that cause you to slip, trip or fall and become injured.
- If you have an allergic reaction in a restaurant, and the menu or the server had failed to inform you of potential food allergies.
- Some shelving in a supermarket that was not secure, and dropped items on you, causing you an injury.
There are many other instances where a person might make a claim. Contact our advisors today to find out if you could claim compensation for an accident you have been involved in.

If this has happened to you, and you have suffered financially as a result, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Dewsbury, West Yorkshire could help you. Contact our team today for more information.
If you are in rented accommodation, it is likely that your landlord, whether it’s a private landlord, housing authority or letting agent, will ask you for a tenancy deposit. This deposit should be returned to you at the end of your tenancy so long as there has not been any damage to the property, and you have fulfilled the terms set out in your tenancy agreement.
You landlord is also legally obliged to protect your deposit for the entire duration of your tenancy. They should enter it into an approved government protection scheme within 30 days, and then share the details of the scheme with you. If they fail to return your deposit to you, deduct any of it without just cause, or if they fail to protect it, you could claim against them for compensation.
Contact our team today for more information on how our panel of solicitors could handle your deposit deduction dispute, and help you claim compensation you might be entitled to. For more information on your rights and responsibilities as a tenant, see the Shelter website.
As well as having a responsibility to protect your deposit, your landlord must also ensure that the property they are letting out is in a habitable condition. Housing disrepair claims can be made where a landlord fails to maintain the property to a liveable standard, causing their tenants to become ill or be injured. An example could be that a person lives in a house that has mould on the walls or ceilings and the landlord has failed to address the issue, resulting in the tenant developing a respiratory illness. In this case, the tenant may be entitled to compensation.
If you live in a property with disrepair that has injured you or made you ill, contact our team today to find out if you might be eligible to make a claim. Our team could advise you on the steps you might need to take on collecting proof, evidence of correspondence with your landlord, and everything else you may need to know about making a claim against your landlord. The Justice website offers more information on protocols to follow before proceeding with a housing disrepair claim.
