This is the common term for solicitors that work to win No Win No Fee compensation for their clients.
Our solicitors work on this basis by offering clients a No Win No Fee Agreement, which is sometimes known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
Solicitors that offer this type of arrangement work on the basis that if the likes of your personal injury claim is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay them for their services. You also won’t have to pay for the work they complete on your case upfront or as your No Win No Fee claim proceeds.
How Much Do No Win No Fee Solicitors Charge?
Let’s take a look at the legal fees involved in making a No Win No Fee claim.
If you are awarded compensation, a percentage of that amount is taken and paid to your solicitor as their success fee. However, the percentage is capped as per the Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013.
In most cases, your solicitor will take a fee of 25%. This only applies in a successful claim.
At present, there is no support with fees through legal aid.

Do I Need To Use No Win No Fee Solicitors Near Me?
You may wonder, “do I need to use a No Win No Fee solicitor or work injury lawyer near me?” The short answer is no.
In the past, it may have seemed appropriate to rely on solicitors near you for many services, such as making a personal injury claim. However, with many solicitors now a phone call or an e-mail away, relying on solicitors from your high street is no longer the necessity it once was.
Our No Win No Fee injury solicitors can work your case regardless of where you are in the country. We have a vast network of solicitors who are specialised in particular cases, meaning that we will always ensure you find an appropriate solicitor.
What Are The Benefits Of Working With A No Win No Fee Solicitor?
Claiming under a No Win No Fee agreement brings with it many benefits. Not only does it offer you some financial protection if the case doesn’t succeed, as well as access to justice, it can also mean you get a better level of representation as you can fund the costs of the claim itself.
For example, our solicitors will ensure that your medical assessment is organised at a place and time that is convenient for you. This assessment is an important part of the claims process –your injuries will be assessed by a medical professional so that a report can be written. This can be used as evidence in your claim. Sometimes medical experts charge thousands of pounds, the costs of which your solicitor will cover.
Another benefit is that your solicitor can help cover the cost of other upfront disbursements in the case. These costs can sometimes mount to thousands of pounds. For example, court fees can prove expensive and reflect the overall value of the claim.
Your lawyers can also cover the cost of disbursements for the likes of medical records too.

However, this may not always provide a solicitor that’s appropriate for your case. Our solicitors have years of experience and specialise in many different types of cases.

To make a No Win No Fee claim, it’s necessary to meet certain criteria. The reason for this is because solicitors will represent you without any upfront fees on the grounds that your case has a good chance of succeeding. If you don’t get paid, they don’t get paid, so that’s why they need to vet each case carefully.
The criteria to claim under a No Win No Fee agreement are:
- The defendant (the party responsible) owed you a duty of care
- That duty was breached, creating the risk of harm
- As a result of the breach, you suffered an injury
- You begin proceedings in your case within 3 years of the date of the accident (personal injury) or in some cases of medical negligence, from the date of knowledge
To help your solicitor make an assessment of your case, it’s useful to provide any evidence you have. This could include:
- An accident report
- CCTV footage of the accident
- Pictures of the cause of the accident, like a raised kerb or pothole
- The contact information of any witnesses to the accident
- Letters or notes from your doctors or the healthcare professionals treating you
We can vet your case for free today to see if you meet these requirements. Call us using the number at the top of this page or speak to us via our live chat box to get started.
It’s important to look for a solicitor with experience in the area of law you need help with. Our personal injury solicitors can support you with any of the following types of No Win No Fee personal injury claims.
Public Liability Claims
Under the Occipiers’ Liability Act 1957 (OLA), the controller of a public space owes a duty of care to those who visit. This means that they have to ensure your reasonable safety while on their premises. If you were injured because the controller of a public space, such as a gym, restaurant, or bar, failed to uphold their duty of care, then you may be able to make a public liability claim.
Accident At Work Claims
When you are working, your employer owes you a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act (1974). This means that they must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure your safety while working.
There are many hazards that could cause an accident at work in a warehouse or factory environment, including dangerous machinery and lack of training in manual handling or equipment. Those who work in office spaces also face hazards, including trailing leads and wires, electrical faults, and slip, trip, and fall hazards.
Road Traffic Accident Claims
All road users owe one another a duty of care to navigate the roads in a way that prevents harm to themselves and others. Part of upholding this duty is complying with the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the mandatory rules in the Highway Code.
One of our solicitors could help you make a road traffic accident claim under a No Win No Fee agreement if you have been injured in a:
- Car accident
- Cycling accident
- Bus accident
- Motorcycle accident
- Taxi accident
- Pedestrian accident
- Hit and run accident
To find out if you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim with the help of one of our solicitors, get in touch today.
In addition to the claims outlined above, we can also help with professional negligence claims arising out of personal injury cases. We represent our clients on a No Win No Fee arrangement for these types of claims too.
Injuries and health concerns that arise as the result of substandard medical care can be incredibly serious. This is why many solicitors, including ourselves, offer No Win No Fee agreements in medical negligence claims.
Some examples of medical negligence include:
- Medical misdiagnosis
- Hospital negligence
- Dental negligence
- Cosmetic surgery – though this strays into personal injury law too
- Claims relating to negligent GPs and doctors
- Birth injuries
If you believe that your health has been negatively affected by the care you received from a medical professional, you may have a viable claim.
If it can be proved that the doctor, nurse or other party acted negligently and contravened their duty of care, we can help you file a medical negligence claim.
If you need any help or support or have a question about a No Win No Fee claim, please get in touch.
To receive compensation, you need to prove that third-party negligence contributed to your injury. While you don’t need legal representation to claim, they can help you in various ways, including collecting evidence to build your case.
There are two potential heads of claim in personal injury claims. General damages relate to the psychological and physical injuries experienced due to the injury and the impact of them on your quality of life. Solicitors and lawyers use the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) to give you an estimate of your potential general damages compensation. You can find some examples of guidelines from the JCG below, except for the first entry.
|Injury Type||Severity||Compensation Bracket||Description|
