Explaining No Win No Fee Compensation Claims
No win no fee claims are offered by solicitors because they know it reduces the financial risk involved with a claim. This means more people can claim the compensation they might be entitled to. You could use a personal injury solicitor for injuries sustained in an accident or a specialist solicitor dealing with financial mis-selling.
When you sign a no win no fee agreement it will state that:
- You don’t have to pay any initial fee.
- The solicitor waives their right to payment of legal fees if they fail to win the case.
- You’ll pay a success fee if your solicitor does win you compensation.
The success fee is limited to 25% of your compensation and is automatically deducted. This means that you don’t need to have the money available to pay the solicitor yourself.
One thing to bear in mind is that there is a personal injury claims time limit. This is usually 3-years from the date of an accident. There are different time limits for other claims, so speak with an advisor to check whether you could begin a claim.

Grimsby Road And Car Accident No Win No Fee Claims
Some of the more common injuries you’re likely to sustain during a road traffic accident (RTA) are:
- Concussion or other head injuries.
- Broken bones especially in the hands and wrists.
- Cuts and lacerations.
- Bruising or soft tissue damage.
- Neck injuries or whiplash.
- Back injuries.
If your injuries were caused because another road user was negligent, you could be entitled to claim compensation against them. You should try and gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim. This could include photographs, dashcam footage, witness statements and medical records.
We recommend that you visit Grimsby accident and emergency department or your GP for any injuries, no matter how serious. This will allow you to receive treatment and at the same time, medical records will be created which could be used as evidence to back up your personal injury claim.
Medical Negligence Claims With Solicitors Covering Grimsby
You could make a medical negligence claim in Grimsby if you were treated in a substandard manner, by a medical professional, which caused you to become unnecessarily ill or avoidably injured. The types of negligence you could claim for include:
- Childbirth avoidable injuries to mother or baby.
- Injuries to teeth, gums or nerves following negligent dental work.
- Surgical errors (including cosmetic surgery).
- Suffering caused because you were given the wrong medication.
- A delay in treatment which caused you to suffer because of a negligent misdiagnosis.

Claims could be for an accident at a Grimsby NHS hospital or private hospital and against any type of medical professional.

Compensation For An Accident At Work In Grimsby
No win no fee solicitors covering Grimsby could also help you claim for compensation if you’ve suffered an accident while at work. That would only be possible if it can be shown that your employer had been negligent, and it was that act that caused the accident to happen which resulted in your injury.
An employer could be deemed negligent if you were injured because:
- The machine that caused your injury was faulty or poorly maintained.
- There were no protective equipment available that could’ve prevented your injury.
- You hadn’t been trained properly in the procedure that you were injured doing.
- You had worked excessively long hours prior to the accident.
- Or if you weren’t made aware of the health and safety procedures in your workplace.
No Win No Fee Injured On Holiday And Flight Delay Claims
When you’re injured on holiday, you might be able to seek compensation for your suffering. This could be under package holiday legislation or using local laws if you booked the holiday independently. However you booked, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Grimsby could be able to help.
A claim might be possible for avoidable injuries sustained during:
- Hotel accidents.
- Accidents on sporting activities (and excursions).
- Hotel transfer accidents.
- Airport and in-flight accidents.
- Accidents on a cruise ship or tender.
- Swimming pool accidents.
You could also claim for illnesses caused by food poisoning in restaurants, hotels or on flights. It’s advised that you should let your holiday rep know as soon if you’re involved in an accident. They could help and provide medical advice and they should log the report which you could use as evidence to support your claim.
Victim Support And Criminal Injury Claims
When a criminal attacks you, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to make a criminal injury compensation against them. This is especially true if they’re not identified. In these cases, you could still be compensated through the Government’s Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.
This scheme provides victim support and allows criminal injury claims for physical, mental or sexual injuries. It could also compensate you for financial losses associated with your injuries.
Examples Of Other Grimsby Accident Claims
Before we move on to other types of claims our panel of solicitors covering Grimsby could also help with the following additional claims;
Children can’t represent themselves legally until they turn 18. Therefore, the law allows a parent to represent them in a personal injury claim while they’re still a child. Once they turn 18, they could make the claim themselves before they’re 21.
Accidents in public places could lead to claims against the local authority if their negligence has caused the accident which has lead to an avoidable injury or illness. In order to help your claim, it could be an idea to photograph what caused the accident as evidence to support the claim.
Trips, slips or falls could happen almost anywhere. If another party was responsible or partially responsible for the injuries that you sustained, as a result of negligent behaviour you could bring a compensation claim against them.
Mis Sold Pension And Pension Annuity Compensation
The FCA, or Financial Conduct Authority protects consumers from financial mis-selling by insisting financial advisors follow a set of rules and procedures. If an advisor breaches those rules and causes the customer to lose out financially, then our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Grimsby could help make a compensation claim.
An advisor could be in breach of FCA regulations if:
- They failed to explain the terms of a particular product.
- You weren’t told about fees associated with the product.
- Your health and lifestyle weren’t discussed.
- There was pressure applied to purchase a particular product.
- You were advised to move money out of a workplace pension and you lost out financially.
- You weren’t given a range of products to choose from.
Tenants Rental Deposit Compensation Claims
The government took steps back in 2007 to help protect tenant’s deposits. New legislation meant any deposit needed to be secured in a tenancy deposit scheme. This was meant to prevent tenants from losing some or all of their deposits unfairly. If your landlord or letting agent breaches the regulations, you could claim against them.
This might be the case if they:
- Don’t put your deposit in a recognised scheme within 30 days.
- Fail to tell you which scheme they’ve used within 30 days.
- Or if they take out the deposit before your tenancy has come to an end.
Compensation For Disrepair In Housing In Grimsby
A different type of claim against a landlord is one for suffering caused by housing disrepair. They could be made against private landlords, councils or housing associations because they all have a duty of care to ensure your property is maintained and meets minimum safety guidelines. This means that you could claim for faults that you’ve reported but haven’t been fixed if they cause you to suffer.
This means you might be able to claim for:
- Financial losses caused because you had to pay for a repair yourself.
- Damage to your property caused by the reported fault.
- Or any injury you sustain because of the fault.
