What Is A No Win No Fee Agreement?
Pursuing a legal claim could be expensive and some people may struggle to find the money upfront to help with their legal expenses. A no win no fee agreement is one that gives a wider range of people better access to the type of legal services that they may need when pursuing a claim for compensation. The majority of No Win No Fee cases proceed with the claimant only needing to pay out any money to the solicitor once they have received their compensation payment.
Making claims in Kidderminster could be made easier when you make a phone call to us. We will assess your case and consider the possibility of it resulting in compensation, we will then be able to put you in touch with one of the solicitors on our panel who will assist with your claim. The chosen no win no fee solicitor will contact you for an initial consultation after which they will ask you to sign a Conditional Fee Agreement, or CFA.
The agreement will provide you with details of any fees that will be required and when you will need to pay them. A significant benefit of a no win no fee arrangement is that you will not be expected to pay upfront for the services you receive from your solicitor. With this type of arrangement, a percentage sum will usually be detailed. This is the amount that your lawyer will take from your compensation as the end of your claim. The government have a 25% cap in place on legal fees related to personal injury claims so you should not worry that you solicitor will require the majority of your compensation settlement in legal fees. If your solicitor does not succeed in winning a valid claim, then you would not be required to settle their fees.

You would also need to be able to verify that the defendant, whether they are a road repair contractor or another driver, was at fault for the accident. The amount of compensation that you might be entitled to could vary depending on the severity of your accident and the type of injuries sustained. Victims of road traffic accidents can make compensation claims for major and minor injuries, which may include those received from broken glass such as cuts and bruises, a broken ankle, shoulder or wrist, or back pain, injuries to the chest, neck, kidney, liver, eyes or whiplash injuries to name but a few.

No matter what type of industry you are employed in, by law, your employer is required to take care of your health and safety. There are a number of ways in which they can do this, including:
- Conducting regular risk assessments and ensuring any findings are actioned.
- Providing the correct equipment to allow you to do your job properly.
- Providing the appropriate training to ensure you can do your job safely and correctly.
- Conducting regular maintenance on the provided equipment and replacing it when necessary.
- Ensuring that your place of work is free from risks that are foreseeable.
These are just a few of the steps they can take. The actions that your employer takes should completely depend on the type of work environment and the work that you do. The risks associated with shop work, for example, could be very different to those related to a construction site.
Injuries that can occur in the workplace may fall into one of two categories. Some work-related accidents and injuries may take place as a result of a one-off incident. This could include injuries caused by chemicals burns or being injured by a malfunctioning piece of machinery. The second category of claim relates to those conditions that are related to your work and occur over time; conditions such as dermatitis, asbestosis, tendonitis and COPD, to name a few.
Some employees could be concerned that making a claim for work injury compensation could result in them losing their jobs. Legally, your employer cannot dismiss you if you make or consider making a claim for an accident at work. If they try to terminate your employment because of this then you may be able to make a claim for unfair dismissal. A no win no fee solicitor could talk this over with you in more detail if needed, but this would not happen in the majority of claims.

You may still be able to claim compensation even if you did not book your holiday as a package, but other laws may then come into play. No win no fee solicitors covering Kidderminster would be able to advise who you would be claiming against.
Accidents that might occur on your holiday which you may be able to claim compensation for could include:
- Hotel accidents such as slips, trips, falls, accidents related to swimming pools or food poisoning

A solicitor from our panel could be able to put together a claim for mis selling compensation if they could prove you’ve been mis sold.
