No Win No Fee Explained
No win no fee is simply an arrangement that can be made between you and your solicitor which will probably save you a lot of money. Under a no win no fee agreement you will not be expected to pay for your solicitor’s time and services with your own money. You will not have to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.
However, if your claim for compensation is successful, your solicitor will receive an amount from your settlement. This is no more than 25% as by government.

You should contact us if you believe you have suffered medical negligence in Taunton. Medical negligence, often also referred to as clinical negligence, refers to any occasion in which a patient has been harmed by the failures and mistakes of doctors and other health workers, or as a result of the care they received while being treated falling below reasonably expected standards. Medical negligence can have a severe impact on a patient’s health, particularly in relation to diagnosis and treatment of serious illnesses, such as cancer.
However, medical negligence is a cause for making compensation claim when it occurs in any healthcare sector, including during dental or cosmetic procedures.
You should contact our team about making a claim if you have suffered an injury or an accident at work that you believe you weren’t responsible for. For example, if an accident has happened because you or your colleagues hadn’t been given the right training or if you were injured because you lacked protective equipment. As well as injuries, long term illnesses related to your occupation can also be grounds for compensation. Working with flour, sawdust, silica’s, petrol fumes and other potentially hazardous materials can be harmful to your health in the long term if safety measures are not taken and safety equipment provided.
If you have been the victim of a violent crime at work which could have been prevented by security measures such as CCTV cameras or key card access to certain areas, then your employer could be liable. Your employer could also be liable for the effects of your work on your mental health, workplace bullying, an unhealthy workplace culture or unreasonable workloads and work hours that lead to stress; which could be grounds for a claim.
You may be wondering “can I claim compensation against my employer while working for them?” You can. Your employer cannot sack you for making a compensation claim for a workplace accident, the law gives you the right to do so.
You could make a claim against a foreign business, such as a hotel or a bar, using our panel of no win no fee solicitors. Our panel of solicitors includes solicitors who are qualified to act as personal injury lawyers in cases for foreign legal systems. However, the case could be handled under British law if the holiday during which your injury or health issue took place was booked through a package deal, as the travel company could be liable for the case.
As well as accidents and illnesses, you could also make a claim for a delayed flight. Under the law which applies to all fights between EU airports, any flight delay which lasts more than three hours entitles you to compensation. The amount and details of this compensation varies depending on the severity of the delay. This Citizens Advice page is a useful source for more information.
While money cannot be expected to make the lasting issues that a person might suffer as a result of suffering physical and/or psychological harm as a victim of a violent crime go away, it could help make managing and recovering from those issues easier. Financial compensation for victims of violent crimes can be claimed from CICA, the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, the government’s national body on crime victim compensation. Criminal injury compensation can be awarded in cases where the suspect has not yet been arrested or found guilty, provided that there is proof that the crime did take place.
If you are wondering “How long does CICA compensation take?” the answer is: it depends on the details of the case, though it usually takes around a year; possibly more, possibly less.
There is a two year claims time limit on making criminal injury compensation claims, however this does not apply to all criminal injury compensation cases. In cases of historical sexual abuse, claims or rape compensation could potentially be awarded many years after the incident took place.
Other miscellaneous claims that our panel of no win no fee personal injury lawyers could help you make could include claims against a business for ignoring tripping hazards, enabling you to fall and injure yourself. Things like cables, wet patches on the floor, broken or uneven flooring or paving could be make the business (or public entity) responsible for the premises liable for injuries suffered by patrons. For more information about fall injury claims, click here.
You could also have grounds for compensation claims if you have injured yourself while playing sports, if you have suffered an injury from a poorly maintained football pitch, if you have fallen while riding a horse due to some other party’s negligence or if you have been hurt by broken or faulty gym equipment.
You could claim against a business if negligent practices or services cause harm to your health. For instance, if you contract food poisoning from eating at a restaurant or takeaway due to poor hygiene, or if you receive cuts or burns while being served at a barbers or a hair salon.
You could also claim against the operator of a public transport network if you have hurt yourself on a bus or a train in a station. For example, if you have fallen over and hurt yourself because the vehicle came to a sudden and unexpected stop or if it was involved in an accident. If you have fallen over and hurt yourself in a vehicle or a station because of wet floors from cleaning or spillages that had not been cleaned up, or from uneven or broken flooring.
Mis-sold pensions, Mis-sold PPI, Mis-sold insurance and any other mis-sold financial products can cost you a lot of money. They can leave you feeling angry, exploited and lied to. Businesses such as banks and financial advisors can be prosecuted for engaging in such practices. In addition, it is also potentially grounds for claiming compensation.
You may have suffered from financial mis-selling if you have been pressured into buying a product that you didn’t really want or didn’t really need. Or if you have been faced with extra costs and fees that you were not warned or informed of. If you were not informed of the potential risk of losing money through the financial product you were buying or if you were not informed of other financial products that which would have been more suitable and helped you to make more money, then you could be entitled to compensation.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors can help you if your landlord has lost or is refusing to return your tenancy deposit and you wish to make a tenancy deposit compensation claim. Without being able to return your tenancy deposit, your landlord loses his or her right to evict you from the property within a section 21 order. In addition to losing or withholding your tenancy deposit, your landlord could also be liable for a tenancy deposit compensation claim (as well as the value of the deposit itself) if they have failed to provide proof to the tenant within thirty days of receiving a deposit that said deposit has been placed safely in a tenancy deposit scheme.

Living in a property with damp, mould, non-functional heating, rotting or missing flooring can lead to a risk of injury or the development of long term health issues. Faults in electrical wiring and gas pipes can lead to potentially fatal accidents. The law requires that persons or businesses letting out properties take responsibility for maintaining and repairing said property to a safe and reasonable standard. Failure to do so can leave them liable to housing disrepair claims.
