What Is A No Win No Fee Claim?
Using a no win no fee solicitor to make any form of compensation claim can really help reduce the amount of stress involved. It means that risk of losing out financially is reduced because you only have to pay the solicitors fees if they win compensation for you. When that happens, their success fee is limited to 25% of your total compensation amount.
Before making a claim on a no win no fee basis, you’ll need to demonstrate to a solicitor that you have a strong case. In many cases, you’ll need to show that:
- Somebody who owed you a duty of care was negligent; and
- Their negligence caused you to become ill, injured or suffer a financial loss; and
- The claim is being made within the relevant time limit.
There is a personal injury claims time limit of 3-years from the date of an accident or from when injuries were diagnosed. For other claim types, the time limit can vary. We will explain this throughout the guide, but you can always speak to an advisor for clarification.

Types of medical negligence which might lead to a claim include:
- Misdiagnosis which has caused extra suffering because of delayed treatment.

Wallasey Workplace Accident Compensation Claims
You could use a solicitor to help claim for a workplace accident if it was caused by your employer’s negligence in some way. Employers are duty bound to try and keep workers safe wherever possible. Under guidance provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), an employer can use risk assessments to identify any dangers and then make changes to reduce them. Failure to do so, which results in an accident, could mean they’re liable to pay compensation for any injuries suffered.
Under UK law, employers can’t discipline you, treat you any differently or sack you for making a claim. They’ll have insurance in place to cover any claim so you shouldn’t feel put off from making a claim for the compensation you might be entitled to.
Accident And Injury On Holiday Claims
Claims for holiday injuries are sometimes possible using no win no fee solicitors covering Wallasey if the accident which led to the injury was caused by negligence.
Using package holiday regulations, you could claim against your holiday provider if the accident happened while using a service you purchased from them. In such cases, if the tour operator is based in the UK then the case will be handled under UK legislation. In other cases, where you booked your holiday independently, you may be able to claim against the responsible party under local legislation.
In general, package holiday claims have a 3-year time limit but claims for injuries which happened independently booked holidays through negligence can vary from country to country. Please get in touch to discuss how we could help you claim.
Claim Compensation For A Criminal Injury
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government run body which enable victims of violent crimes to be compensated.

The general time limit here is shorter of just 2 years, there are of course exceptions please call our advisors for more information.
Other Types Of No Win No Fee Accident Claims
We’ve already covered many claims that a personal injury lawyer could help you with. Before we move on to other types of claims that are possible, here are a few more personal injury claims that you might need to make.
- Injuries caused by trips, slips or falls. These are common and can happen almost anywhere, including at work. If they’re caused by somebody else’s error or negligence, you might be able to receive compensation for any injuries.
- Children’s accident claims are also possible, but the child will need an adult to represent them as they’re not allowed to claim before they turn 18. If a claim hasn’t been made, when the child becomes an adult, they have 3 years to claim themselves up until their 21st birthday.
- Finally, claims for accidents which happen in public places are also possible. You’ll need to identify who was responsible for the area where the accident happened and provide evidence to show how they caused the accident.
Compensation For The Mis-Selling Of Financial Services
There are rules in place to protect consumers from financial mis-selling. These are governed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and cover financial advisors selling products like annuities, investments, mortgages and pensions.
If you lose out financially because of advice which didn’t follow the FCA rules, you might be entitled to claim compensation.
You might be able to claim if:
- Your advisor pressured you into choosing a particular product.
- They didn’t explain the fees, charges or terms associated with the product recommended.
- You were advised to take money out of a workplace pension.
- They didn’t discuss your lifestyle or health history with you.
- You were only given one or two products to choose from which meant you couldn’t make an informed decision.
Disputed Tenancy And Rental Deposit Compensation Claims
There are times when you might need to make a claim against your landlord because they’ve not used Tenancy Deposit Schemes (TDS) properly. A TDS is required, by law, as it helps ensure tenants deposits aren’t unfairly retained by a landlord when a tenancy comes to an end.
You might be able to use no win no fee solicitors covering Wallasey if:
- Your deposit wasn’t paid into a TDS within 30 days of you paying it.
- The landlord didn’t write to you and tell you which scheme they’d used.
- Or where the landlord withdrew the money from the TDS before your tenancy had ended.
Claim Against A Landlord In Wallasey For Disrepair

If you’ve informed a private landlord, a council or a housing association of problems at your property which they’re obliged to repair, and you suffer an injury because they failed to repair the damage, you could be entitled to compensation from them. The same could be true if they’ve identified the problem themselves during an inspection of the property.
The types of problem that could lead to a claim include:
- Heating or hot water issues.
- Electrical faults or hazards.
- Structural defects.
- Mould or damp.
- Leaking pipes or roofs.
