If you’re injured because of the actions or negligence of someone else, or you’ve suffered financially because of your landlord or even if you’ve been mis sold financial products by an advisor, you could launch a claim for compensation.

We could provide you with a no win no fee solicitor covering Plymouth from our panel that could help pursue your claim without needing to be paid upfront.
Below, you’ll find an explanation of what no win no fee solicitors covering Plymouth are, as well as what types of claims they could work on. If you would like to talk to us straight away or have anything in the below sections clarified, then call the No Win No Fee Expert helpline on 0800 073 8802. Otherwise, read on to learn more about these type of claims.
What Are No Win No Fee Claims?
The first thing we need to do is clarify what a no win no fee agreement is. While there are no upfront costs involved in no win no fee cases, you would use a percentage of your compensation settlement to pay the lawyer. However, what could happen is that your legal representative, whether a personal injury solicitor or a financial claims lawyer, could ask you to take out some kind of insurance to cover costs in case your case does not end successfully.
There could be significant benefits to claiming with a no win no fee solicitor. These could include:
- Immediate ability to move forward with a claim – If you had to wait to get the money together to claim, you could be too late to put your case forward.
- You could have the ability to pay the lawyer’s fees out of the compensation you receive, meaning you would not be out of pocket technically.
- Your claims lawyer, whether a personal injury solicitor or other type of lawyer, would have a vested interest in the success of your case as their fees would be impacted by the amount of compensation you would receive.
Normally, you would have an agreement that you and your lawyer would both sign. This document states that the lawyer would take on your case and that you would pay them a percentage from your final settlement which cannot, by government regulations, be more than 25 percent.
Now you know more about how no win no fee solicitors work, let’s take a look at the type of claims they could take on.

Road accident figures in the UK are at their lowest in terms of the number of casualties reported, according to Government statistics. However, this doesn’t mean they are uncommon. In 2017, 170,993 injuries were reported due to accidents on the road.
Road traffic accidents could happen to motorcyclists, pedestrians, drivers, and passengers. Whether you are travelling for work or for leisure, an injury caused by a negligent road user could range in severity from whiplash to fatalities.
If someone else caused an accident and you were injured in that accident because of their dangerous/negligent behaviour on the road, making claims with no win no fee solicitors covering Plymouth could be possible – even if the driver has disappeared from the scene or doesn’t have the relevant insurance to cover your claim. The Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) was set up for this reason, and your no win no fee solicitor could help you make a claim to them for compensation.
There are a variety of reasons for a person to make a medical negligence claim. It may not matter whether or not you already had a medical condition to begin with. But if negligent treatment caused your existing health condition to become worse, then you could have a claim for compensation. We would always advise that you seek medical negligence solicitors covering Plymouth because medical negligence claims in themselves could be quite complicated. A solicitor that is experienced in this type of claim could bring such expertise to your case.
You could look at making a medical negligence claim for a number of different types of negligence, including:
- Childbirth negligence
- Accident and Emergency department negligence
- Care home negligence
- Dental negligence
- GP negligence
- Hospital negligence
- And more…
If you have experienced malpractice in a clinical setting, call our team today.
Another reason you might consider making a personal injury claim could be if you suffered a workplace condition/illness and your employer could be deemed at fault. No win no fee employment lawyers covering Plymouth could have experience in helping claimants which could maximise the level of compensation you could receive.
The different types of claims include:
- Workplace accidents – If you employer has failed to make the workplace safe (e.g. fitting safety guards to machinery, training you in the safe method of lifting and carry heavier object, or ensuring there is adequate lighting for you to move around the workplace safely) and you suffer some sort of accident that causes you injury, you could make a claim.
- Workplace developed conditions – If you have suffered from tendonitis, RSI, industrial deafness or another condition that could have developed over time because your employer failed to reduce the foreseeable risks of these conditions, you could potentially make a claim.
- Unfair dismissal – In the event that action taken against you is unfair then you could consider using a solicitor for an unfair dismissal claim. It could be pertinent for us to mention here that this would not happen in most cases, so it would be wise not to let this idea stop you from making a compensation claim for an injury or illness at work.
Whatever type of employment compensation claim you’re looking to make, contact our team to see if we could assist you.
If you suffered an illness from poor hygiene standards in a hotel, developed food poisoning, or you fell on slippery flooring due to a water spillage in the airport, you could consider making a claim for a holiday injury or illness. If you booked your holiday as a package through a UK based tour operator, there is legislation that allows you to make a claim against the holiday provider, obviously this would only be for negligent accidents that occurred due to an entity within the package. Even if you booked privately or all parts of your holiday separately, you could still make a claim. No win no fee lawyers covering Plymouth could help with negligent accidents that happened:
- At the airport
- In the hotel or on hotel grounds
- In flight
- While on a pre-booked excursion
- On an airport transfer
- In the swimming pool
- And more…
If you fell ill or suffered injuries while abroad on holiday due to a third party, you could contact No Win No Fee Expert to be connected to a no win no fee solicitor from our panel that could help you.
Unfortunately, in the UK there has been a rise in the number of injuries caused by knives. Statistics published by the Office of National Statistics have shown that there has been a 7% increase in incidents involving sharp objects. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s criminal activity (via a knife injury, a physical assault or because of another violent attack) you could claim compensation for your injuries through Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) and no win no fee solicitors covering Plymouth could assist with this type of claim.
The personal injury claims time limit for criminal injury claims is normally 2 years from the incident date, so it could be a good idea to look for a no win no fee criminal injuries solicitor sooner rather than later. We could help you with this.
Sexual Abuse – A Longer Time Limit?
If you have suffered abuse in the past, then it may be of interest for you to know that claim deadlines could be extended. If it could be proven that you did not have the mental capacity to deal with what happened to you at the time, and you have only just begun to come to terms with it, a no win no fee solicitor could fight for you to make a claim years later. Contact our team to speak to us confidentially about what has happened to you, and we promise to handle your call with sensitivity.
Slips, trips and falls are other reasons you might have cause to make an accident claim. These could happen almost anywhere. Depending on where you were when the injury occurred and who had liability for the place that you were in, no win no fee solicitors covering Plymouth maybe able to assist if it can be proven your accident was due to third party negligence. You could make a claim against an employer if they left a trip hazard in a walkway, or against a supermarket for a trip on broken shelving that was left in a supermarket aisle.
A public place is an area that a person could visit as a member of the public. Someone would be liable for these areas and depending on who is responsible, a solicitor could make a claim against them on your behalf, if you suffered unnecessarily whether this was a local council, a leisure centre owner/operator or another business.
Our panel of solicitors do not just help claimants with personal injury claims, they could also assist with claims that have left you out of pocket in other ways, such as if you were mis sold a financial product.
Any financial advisor is bound by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to provide the most appropriate product for clients. If they fail to do so or don’t ask about your current/previous mental and physical health while seeking appropriate products for you, or don’t advise you on the risks of a particular product, you could suffer financial losses. We could provide no win no fee solicitors covering Plymouth to assist with claims for compensation.
Another area our panel of solicitors could help with is for making claims for tenancy deposit mismanagement. If your landlord did not abide by the rules for tenancy deposits you could consider claiming compensation. This could be anywhere from 1 to 3 times the amount you paid out for your deposit. The rules are that:
- Your landlord must deposit your tenancy deposit in an approved scheme within 30 days of payment.
- Your landlord must advise you where the money is held within 30 days.
- The deposit must be protected for the duration of your tenancy.
If they fail to do so, you could have cause to claim. We could provide tenancy deposit scheme no win no fee solicitors to assist you.
Living in a house that is in disrepair could be stressful, but did you know it could be costing you money?

Some claims have time limits within which you must have taken action for them to be valid. It could be easy to get started with claiming straight away with a no win no fee solicitor provided by No Win No Fee Expert.
