How Conditional Fee Agreement Solicitors Could Help You
There are a number of common misconceptions about Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA), specifically how they are financed and under what conditions they operate. However, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Harlow conduct personal injury claims on the basis that they would not require an upfront payment. Instead, you will pay them once your claim had been settled from the payout you receive.
You may be wondering what sort of rates that a no win no fee solicitor would deduct from your compensation amount. In the event that a settlement amount is successfully claimed, the amount subtracted from the compensation sum is usually taken as a percentage. As it cannot be more than 25 percent, this leaves you the majority of your compensation settlement for your own benefit.
The way in which these claims work is via an agreement signed by both your lawyer and yourself that sets out the percentage and the conditions that must be met for your lawyer to receive this payment. Your lawyer might give you the advice to pay for an insurance policy to cover you in case of a loss for your claim, but this is something they would explain to you in more detail. Usually, once a claim is successfully settled, then you would receive your settlement, minus the legal fees at the pre-agreed percentage.

- Ensuring you have the correct safety measures in place for working at height

You could make a CICA claim for loss of earnings as well as the initial injuries you suffered. You could also claim for expenses, such as travel costs, as a result of the injury.
Sexual assault and abuse compensation
According to the Police website, there were 1,476 reports of sexual and violent offences in Harlow between October 2018 and September, 2019. However, these statistics do not show you how many cases of historical sexual abuse were reported. If you have been a victim of such a crime, the usual 2 year limit for claiming to CICA could be overlooked. This is because you might not have had the emotional capacity to report abuse to the police straight away. Therefore you might be able to claim for historical cases of sexual abuse with the assistance of a no win no fee solicitor.

- Burns and scald claims
- Public place claims
- Slip and trip claims
- Product injury claims
- And more…

Sadly, some financial advisors have in the past been found to mis sell financial products, despite Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulations. If you feel you might have been the victim of financial mis selling then you could ask yourself the following questions:
- Was I fully aware of what I was signing up for?
- Did I know all the risks?
- Was I made aware of extra charges?
- Is the product suitable for my needs?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, you could have been mis sold a financial product. Our panel of solicitors covering Harlow could assist with making claims for compensation for financial loss you’ve suffered as a result.
If there is a delay in the return of your tenancy deposit, unreasonable deductions from the original total or failure to return the full sum altogether, a claim for deposit dispute could be made.

If not, you could claim with the help of a no win no fee solicitor – this could be for up to three times the amount of money you initially deposited in compensation.
