This is an online guide for those who have been affected by third negligence and wish to make a claim for compensation. Whether you have been affected by whiplash or wish to claim for an accident on holiday, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Surrey have the expertise to handle claims of all different natures. So if you have been affected by negligence and wish to begin a claim, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.
If you pursue a claim for compensation, it is worth remembering that all claims could be directly impacted by a time limit. Each time limit can vary depending on the type of claim you’re making, so we would recommend that you speak with an advisor. For example, a personal injury claims time limit is typically 3 years, meaning a claim of this nature should be made within 3 years of the negligent event. Alternatively, the time limit comes into action once injuries and suffering (such as PTSD) have been officially diagnosed.
To discover whether your potential claim meets the applicable time limit, please contact a member of our team. They can discuss your claim in greater length and answer any queries that you might have.
How Does A No Win No Fee Case Work?
If you have been affected by third party negligence and wish to make a claim, then a solicitor from our panel could offer you a no win no fee agreement. This may also be referred to as a Conditional Fee Agreement, and in simple terms, acts as an arrangement between you and your solicitor.
The agreement outlines the payment component of a claim, stating that you as the claimant will be required to pay a success fee if the case has a successful outcome. This fee will be subsided from the final settlement and acts as payment for the services that have been provided. By law, the fee is capped at 25%, but you and your solicitor will discuss this in greater length upon meeting. In the event a solicitor accepts a claim but fails to attain a settlement, then the no win no fee agreement reduces the threat to your finances.

When making a financial purchase, whether this concerning a mortgage, pension, or investment, it is a rational decision to seek the expertise of a financial advisor. An advisor can offer guidance and support throughout the decision making process. When seeking the expertise of a financial advisor, they are required by law to outline all of the relevant information before any decision has been made. They should be honest, factual, and unbiased throughout the process. Therefore, an advisor should outline any additional costs, hidden fees, alternative options, and risks to your finances. Without being informed of these factors, it could cause a financial loss.

If you as a tenant has contractually met the obligations within your tenancy agreement, left the property in great condition, and have paid your bills on time, then you should receive your deposit in the legal timeframe of 10 days. If you have met these conditions but your landlord has failed to return the deposit (without valid reason), then you could have grounds to make a claim. You may also have grounds to make a claim if a landlord has neglected their duty of care. Shelter.org has identified the legal obligations that a landlord has to fulfil. These include;
- Project The Deposit Throughout The Tenancy
- Provide The Tenant With Written Confirmation
- Place The Deposit Into A Government Backed Scheme
From the local council, housing associations, to private landlords, there are a variety of people who could be responsible if a property falls into disrepair. However, as a tenant in a rented property, you have an obligation to inform the landlord if the property falls into disrepair.

However, if you have reported the disrepair and your landlord has failed to do anything about it, and you have suffered any of the above-mentioned consequences then it may be possible for you to make a claim for compensation. Common examples of disrepair may include;
- Mould /Damp
