No Win No Fee Claims

It’s our belief that everybody who’s been wronged through no fault of their own has an opportunity to restore the balance in their lives and to be compensated for the harm inflicted.

We’ve supported thousands of people over the years with claims and are proud of the service delivered and the manner in which we’ve helped them.

Given our experience, we understand how stressful and worrying a legal issue can be. A serious injury sustained in a car accident, for example, could leave you unable to work for weeks. While your income may stop, the outgoings often don’t, and that can create financial stress and worry.

It’s issues like this we understand all too well. And we’ve designed our service to ensure that it both works for you and supports you.

One way in which we achieve this is through No Win No Fee agreements. Also known as Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs), this form of contract between you and your solicitor allows you to pursue a claim without having to pay any fees unless the case is successful. Here’s how it works:

  • The contract is based around the key condition of success. If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any of your lawyer’s costs that they have incurred in representing you.
  • You won’t have to pay any costs upfront, nor while the case is ongoing.
  • If the claim is a success, your lawyer will take a small fee from your compensation award—a success fee—to help cover their costs, which can reach thousands of pounds. Success fees are capped by law and will be outlined in clear terms within your No Win No Fee agreement.

If you have any questions about CFAs, our advisers are on hand. Give them a call today.

How Much Compensation Could I Receive?

If you have strong grounds to make a claim for a personal injury, medical negligence, a workplace injury or a data breach, then you may seek examples of compensation estimates that reflect your case. Some may seek a specific compensation calculator, such as a harassment compensation calculator if they are making a claim for workplace harassment.

There are many factors that influence the potential compensation payouts for these different types of claims. The types of injuries you’re claiming for and how severe they are is particularly influential.

In the table below, we’ve included compensation brackets for different injuries you may potentially claim for following an incident such as an accident in a public area, an accident at work or a case of medical negligence. The brackets are based on the 2022 edition of the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). While they can’t guarantee how much compensation you’ll receive in a successful claim, the figures are based on past claims and can give some indication.

The Idea Behind How Much Compensation

When you suffer an injury and are thinking of making a claim, it’s only natural to wonder how much compensation you could be entitled to.

However, giving you a precise figure without knowing the details of your case is difficult. Some firms use tools like a personal injury claims calculator. But they can provide misleading results that build hope. In fact, we’ve known clients in the past who have believed what they’ve been told and taken out loans on the back of it.

We want to deliver the best service possible, and for us, that means getting to know you and your case. It also means shedding as much light as possible on the legal process and how compensation is valued.

So on our site, you can find lots of guides and case studies centred around all different types of injuries. We talk you through the claims process for each one, illustrating it with an example case study. And above all, we offer reliable advice on how much compensation you could receive.

Without a doubt, the best way to have your claim valued is to speak with us directly. When we learn the ins and outs of your case, the impact it’s had on you and your life, and any financial repercussions you’ve suffered, we can provide more concrete advice.

And if you’d like to make a claim, we can connect you to our panel of specialist lawyers. They can get to work on your case right away and begin the process of obtaining not just compensation, but justice too.
