Conditional Fee Agreement Claims Explained
Firstly, let us take a look at what a no win no fee solicitor is and how they work. Essentially, when you decide you wish to make a personal injury claim or other compensation claims, you might prefer to look for a solicitor to help you; unless you have experience in the law. Whether you connect with a housing disrepair solicitor or a medical negligence solicitor covering Rugby, Warwickshire depends entirely on the type of claim you’re looking to make. We would advise you to check if they have the relevant experience to take on your claim, however, as this could mean they’d bring experience in the specific area of the law that covers your claim. The relevant experience to your type of claim could be used to build a good argument for you to be compensated. We would also advise you to consider using a no win no fee solicitor that works under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
When you engage the services of such a solicitor, you would sign an agreement with them which means you could begin a claim without having to pay their fees in advance or while they are building your case. Instead, you would be expected to pay them out of your compensation settlement and this is what the no win no fee agreement sets out.
The fees you’ll pay your lawyer would usually be set out in the agreement as a percentage amount. This is capped at no more than 25% of your settlement. Once your settlement is made, the lawyer’s fees would be paid out to you and the rest would go to benefit you.
The advantages of working with no win no fee solicitors covering Rugby could include:
- No fees to the lawyer need to be paid in advance
- Less financial risk of your own funds
- Your lawyer’s fees would be impacted by your compensation amount
- A lawyer would not be likely to take on a claim if they felt it wouldn’t pay out, therefore your time and theirs would not be wasted

Various claims of this type generally have a personal injury claims time limit of 3 years from the accident date. However, there are some exceptions to these rules. For example, if you did not have the capacity to claim, i.e. you were physically or mentally unable to claim because of your injuries, you could perhaps have an extended time to claim. Another example could be if you had an accident as a child and no one brought a case forward on your behalf. In these cases, you could make a claim from when you turn 18 to your 21st birthday.
But what types of injury claims could be made for road accidents? Here, we reveal a few examples:

If you’ve suffered an injury or a work-related condition and you believe if your employer had acted responsibly, that this would not have happened, then you could have cause to launch an injury at work claim.
This is because your employer should be taking care of your health and safety while you are working for them. They have a legal duty to do so and could comply with this by taking steps such as:
- Ensuring the workplace is as free of hazards as is reasonable
- Ensuring you have the relevant training to do your job safely
- Ensuring you have the relevant equipment to do your job safely
- Checking and maintaining such equipment
- Ensuring machinery is serviced regularly and any issues fixed
- And more…

Unfortunately, crime does occur in the UK and in Rugby specifically. The police website, reveals that between November 2018 and October 2019, Rugby Town Centre saw 283 violent and sexual offences reported. If you were a victim of a crime that caused you to suffer injuries, a no win no fee solicitor could help you make a claim for compensation.
The assault claim amount for compensation would be worked out based on injury and the suffering you’d experienced, as well as financial losses you’ve suffered as a result of the assault. But you might not have to have been physically assaulted in a direct attack to claim. You could also claim if you witnessed a violent crime and experienced emotional trauma, or if you suffered injuries while you attempted to stop a crime. Such claims are usually made through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
While a 2-year time limit exists in most cases for CICA claims, exceptions could be made for victims of historical abuse. If you have suffered years ago from sexual abuse, please do speak to us to see if you could make a claim, as it could be considered that you did not process the events that occurred at the time the abuse occurred, and therefore you might have lacked the capacity to claim before now. We would like to help you in any way we can.
