At No Win No Fee Expert, we believe that you should not have to pay upfront for making compensation claims ranging from financial mis selling claims to medical negligence claims and more.

How A No Win No Fee Solicitor Could Help You
If you were to go ahead with a claim for compensation on your own, without legal assistance, you are well within your rights to do so. But there could be certain benefits from working with a no win no fee solicitor. An experienced solicitor could not only advise you on who to make your claim against, but they could also use their experience to help build a strong case that could be hard for the liable party to argue against. They will also advise you on whether any settlement offer you are presented with would be appropriate. And, with no fees required upfront for no win no fee claims, you could benefit from all this legal assistance without having to find the money upfront to retain a no win no fee lawyer’s services.
This is because claims of this type are made under a document known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. The lawyer’s ‘success fee’ (a percentage of any compensation payout) would be detailed in this agreement, but if you had a valid claim, and your claim was not successful, they wouldn’t be able to ask you for this success fee. This is where the term no win no fee comes from. If you would like to know more about how this works, then our advisors would be happy to go through this with you in more detail.

Accidents in the workplace that cause injuries could happen for any number of reasons, but if they happen because your employer has been negligent in taking care of your health and safety, then a no win no fee solicitor could help you make a claim for compensation. This compensation may not only cover the pain and suffering that you have endured because of your injuries, but it could also cover any financial costs that have arisen as a direct result of the accident too.
This is because an employer has a duty of care towards their staff to provide a safe working environment. If they fail in this duty and you are injured as a result, then you could be eligible to make a claim.
Depending on where you work, and the tasks you perform as part of your job, there are a lot of different things you employer could or should do to protect you. Some examples of these could include:
- Ensuring your workstation is set up according to the DSE regulations.
- Ensuring that you are given regular breaks where necessary.
- Ensuring that you are provided with protective equipment where necessary.
- Ensuring hazard warning signs are appropriately placed in the workplace.
- Ensuring relevant safety training is provided where necessary.
If you have experienced injuries in the workplace due to your employer’s negligence, then our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Kensington and Chelsea could help you claim workplace accident compensation.
It is not just accidents in the workplace that might lead to claims, however. Long-term conditions could also be claimed for if there were foreseeable risks of developing the condition and your employer did nothing about reducing these risks. Claims such as these could be made for:
- Industrial deafness
- White finger vibration
- Repetitive Strain Injury
If you are concerned about making a claim against an employer, it might be prudent for us to mention that your employer would likely be using their employer’s liability insurance to pay for your claim, and we should also mention that you should not lose your job because you’re making a claim. In fact, there is legislation in place to protect you from being treated differently because of any claim. If you’d like to discuss this in further detail, our advisors would be glad to advise you.
If you’re considering making a claim for holiday illness or accident compensation, you may assume you would need to use a holiday claim solicitor based in the country you were visiting. However, this is not the case. In some circumstances, even if an accident happens abroad, you could be claiming under UK law. This could be true of holidays that were booked as a package through UK tour operators, as you could be claiming under the Package Travel Regulations of 2018. In certain cases, you may be making a claim under international laws. If you have suffered while on your flight then the Montreal Convention may come into play. However, even if you are claiming under foreign laws, a no win no fee solicitor could still help you. But, what types of holiday claim could you make? Here are just a few examples:
- Flight delay compensation claims
- Holiday food poisoning claims
- Hotel swimming pool injury claims
- Hotel balcony accident claims

If you were a victim of a violent or sexual crime and suffered injuries, you could make a claim for victim compensation. But what is victim compensation, and who do you claim through?
Victim compensation is an amount of money that could be paid out to those who have been injured as a result of violent crime. Claimants could include:
- Direct victims of attacks/assaults
- People injured when trying to stop violent crimes
- People mentally scarred while witnessing violent crimes
Claims of this type could be made with a no win no fee solicitor from our panel, through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is an authority that has been set up to compensate such victims. There is only a 2-year time limit for claims through CICA in most cases though, so you might wish to seek assistance from no win no fee solicitors covering Kensington and Chelsea rather quickly if you have suffered as a result.
Exceptions for Sexual Abuse Victims
If you wish to know whether you could make a claim for historic abuse, then a no win no fee solicitor from our panel could still help you, even if some years have passed since the abuse. It could be said that you were unable to properly process the abuse you have suffered until years after the event, and therefore an exception to the time limit for claiming could be made. If you would like to know more about this, then do contact our advisors for guidance.

If your injuries were caused by an accident that was not your fault, and someone else could be held liable, then a personal injury solicitor could help you with claiming compensation.
