How Do Conditional Fee Agreement Claims Work?
Making a claim with a no win no fee solicitor would involve the signing of a conditional fee agreement, also known as a no win no fee agreement. This is a document that both you and your solicitor would sign, and it lays out the terms and conditions of the lawyer taking on your case, and what conditions would need to be fulfilled for them to receive payment. Usually, the payment is laid out in terms of a percentage, which cannot exceed 25 percent. This is known as a success fee and will be taken from your settlement figure at the end of your claim.
Other important benefits of a no win no fee agreement include;
- No upfront fee required.
- No need to pay your solicitor for their fees should you claim not be successful.
Now we’ve taken you through how the process works with a no win no fee solicitor, let us now see what claims could be launched with the assistance of these types of lawyers.

In Margate Central, from October 2018 to September 2019, there were 1230 reports of sexual/violent offences. There are certain circumstances where, if you were injured because of criminal behaviour, you could claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Here, we take you through a few frequently asked questions about this type of claim.
Can I Get Compensation For Being Attacked?
Yes, if certain conditions have been met. This includes the incident being reported to the police, and you suffering injuries. You’d also usually have to be within the personal injury claims time limit that applies to CICA claims – 2 years from the incident date in most cases. This is shorter that some other personal injury claims, so you might want to engage the services of a no win no fee solicitor quickly should you be heading towards this time limit.
Are There Other Types Of Injuries I Could Claim for?
Yes, you might have suffered injuries while attempting to halt a crime, or because you were a witness to violent events and suffered mental trauma.
How Much Is Victims Of Crime Compensation?
CICA have their own payment scales with regards to criminal injuries. Please read here for more information regarding this. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact one of our advisors.
Can I claim for Historic Crimes Of Abuse?
If you suffered abuse when you were younger, whether you reported it at the time or not, it could still be possible for compensation to be sought. Please contact us to discuss your circumstances in more detail.

There are approved schemes within the UK that your landlord should deposit your rental money into within 30 days of the deposit being paid, and they should let you know where these monies are held within 30 days too. If they have failed to protect your deposit, or are refusing to return it within the tenancy deposit return time limit, which is 10 days of the agreement of how much is to be repaid, then no win no fee solicitors covering Margate claims could help you claim for compensation.
