No Win No Fee Explained
Using a no win no fee solicitor means that any financial risk involved with claiming is reduced. That’s because, when the solicitor takes on your case, you’ll both sign a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is a contract between you both and it explains that you don’t have to pay any solicitor’s fees unless compensation is awarded.
When a case is won, the CFA will explain that you’ll pay the solicitor a success fee. This is a percentage of your compensation which is deducted and paid to the solicitor before the rest is sent to you. By law, the success fee can’t be any more than 25% of your compensation.
Because the solicitor risks not being paid (if a case isn’t won), they have to pick which cases they take on. You’ll usually be asked to demonstrate that:
- You have been made to suffer (financially, physically or psychologically);
- By somebody who owed you a duty of care;
- And the suffering was caused by a negligent act.
As well as those criteria, your claim will need to made before any relevant time limit passes. The personal injury claims time limit is generally 3-years from the date of your accident. Other claims have their own time limits. For example, a criminal injury claim has a 2-year limit and package holiday claims have 3-years. It’s best to check with an advisor because there are certain circumstances where the time limit might vary.

Any road traffic accident that occurs when you have suffered injuries through no fault of your own due to a third parties negligence could mean a personal injury lawyer could help you to make a claim if the accident was caused by another driver or road user.

Claim Compensation For An Accident At Work In Waltham Forest
Any employer, from small family-run companies to multi-national corporations have a duty of care to try and keep staff safe while at work according to the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974). In practical terms, they should assess the workplace for any dangers and take steps to reduce them where possible.
Things employers could do to reduce risks include:
- Ensuring all staff are trained properly in their duties.
- Making sure the company has a health and safety policy and staff are aware of it.
- Maintaining all equipment to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
- Providing safety equipment where required.
No Win No Fee Claims If Injured While On Holiday
When you’re involved in an accident abroad, if it was caused by somebody else’s negligence you might be entitled to make a claim against them. Under package holiday regulations, if you were injured while using a service sold to you by a package holiday provider, the claim could be made against them.
If you booked your holiday in any other way, a claim could still be made but it’d be against the party responsible. Whereas a package holiday claim generally has a 3-year time limit, the time limit would be dictated by the rules in the country in which your accident happened.
Some examples of holiday accident claims include:
- Airport or in-flight accidents.
- Hotel transfer or hire car collisions.
- Cruise ship accidents.
- Food poisoning.
- Injuries caused by excursions or sporting activities.
- Hotel accidents.
As making a claim of this nature is complex, you may be pleased to know that our panel of no win no fee solicitors are well versed in international law and may be able to help you make a claim.
No Win No Fee Criminal Assault Compensation Claims
It’s not that well known that if you’re the victim of a violent crime, you could make a compensation claim using the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). They are a government body who allow claims for physical and psychological injuries caused as a result of a violent crime.
There is a 2-year time limit for making a claim of this nature, but this could be waived for historical cases.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Waltham Forest have the knowledge and experience to help with CICA claims. Please call the number at the top of the screen if you’d like to discuss your options.
Further Waltham Forest Injury Claims
Before we move on to other types of claims we could help you with, here are a few more personal injury claims:
- Children’s accident claims. A parent could claim on behalf of their child at any point before they turn 18. Failing that, the victim has 3-years from their 18th birthday to claim themselves.
- Public accidents. If you’re injured in a public place like on a footpath, in a shopping centre or in a car park, you could claim against the operator or local authority if their negligence caused the accident.
- Slips, trips or falls. If a slip or fall is caused by negligence, such as a slippery floor with no warning signs, a broken handrail or an icy pathway, you could claim against the responsible party.
Pension Mis Selling Complaints And Claims
In recent years, pension mis-selling complaints have risen fairly rapidly. As well as pensions, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates the sale of financial products such as annuities, mortgages and investments.
If a financial advisor fails to follow FCA rules, causing you to lose money, you could seek compensation against them. Some of those rules include:
- Informing you of all fees and charges linked to a product.
- Making you aware of the key terms and conditions.
- Giving you a choice of products because if you’re only given one or two, you can’t make an informed decision.
- Discussing your lifestyle and health history before recommending a product.
- Not pressuring you into choosing a product.
If you have any letters or emails showing poor advice from a financial advisor, then they could be used as evidence to support your claim. To discuss your circumstances in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Tenancy Deposit Dispute Resolution Claims
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Waltham Forest could help you with tenancy deposit disputes. Under rules introduced in 2007, landlords must use a Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS). A TDS helps ensure your deposit isn’t retained unfairly.

- Ensuring you’re told, in writing, which TDS has been used.
