Why Choose Leeds No Win No Fee Solicitors?

This guide will explain how to work with No Win No Fee solicitors, and what the benefits are for seeking compensation after an accident that caused you harm.
Are you a victim of someone else’s negligence and have been hurt in an accident? You may be eligible for a personal injury case if you were injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence.

An injury that you sustained in an accident at work, in public places, or on the road could be grounds for a claim. You must have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s breach of duty.

We know you might be anxious about seeking compensation. This is why it may be a good idea to hire an experienced solicitor to help you.

Many people are concerned about the cost of hiring legal representation. We recommend that you look into the possibility of a No Win, No Fee solicitor. In our guide, we’ll explain more about what this means.

What are No Win, No Fee Solicitors

No Win No Fee (or Conditional Fee Agreement, CFA) is a general term that covers agreements such as the No Win No Fee. If your claim is denied, you don’t have to pay a success fee.

These agreements generally do not require a solicitor to pay an upfront fee to begin working on a case. Usually, you don’t have to pay any ongoing fees while your claim is being processed.

If the claim is successful, the client will be charged a success fee. As a percentage, the fee is deducted from client’s compensation payment. This is subject to a legal limit.

Many claimants find that hiring legal representation on a No Win No Charge basis is more cost-effective. This reduces the chance of being required to pay large legal fees in the event the claim is rejected and no compensation is awarded.

No win no fee solicitors are those who handle claims on this basis. Due to the high risk for solicitors, they won’t accept cases with a good chance at success.

To be eligible for consideration, claims must satisfy the following criteria:

You must have been obligated to care for someone else
They must have violated their duty of care.
You must therefore have suffered physical or psychological harm.

What is the Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013 (CFA)?

A success fee was introduced by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 to Conditional Fee Agreements. The success fee was introduced to stop the claimant’s lawyer from receiving all fees from the defendant in successful cases.

The Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013, which established a legal limit on the amount that solicitors could charge for success fees, was passed following the introduction of the success-fee in the LASPO Act 2012.

Solicitors are legally allowed to charge only a 25% success fee in a Conditional Fee Agreement CFA.
Claims No Win, No Fee Solicitors Handle

No Win No Fee Solicitors can help with various cases where someone has violated their duty to care and caused harm to someone else, such as:

Road traffic accident claims include bike accident claims, pedestrian accident claims, and car accident claims. A car driver may not have followed the speed limit and caused a pedestrian crossing the road at a marked crossing to be knocked over. The pedestrian could have suffered a minor head injury as a result.
Public injury claims: You may be able to claim compensation from your local council for the fractured arm that you sustained when you fell down a pothole that was not repaired in a reasonable amount of time.
Workplace injury claims: If your employer fails to conduct regular risk assessments of the equipment used at work, a claim can be made. You may have suffered a severe injury to your leg as a result of falling off a ladder that was defective.
Medical negligence: You can make a claim for medical negligence if you are not provided with the right standard of care by a qualified healthcare professional. This could result in you suffering an additional injury or preventable harm. Your doctor might have given you the wrong medication, causing an allergic reaction.
Data breach claims: An organisation might have failed to update their security systems, resulting in a data breach that could affect your personal data.

You may also be advised to purchase After The Event (ATE), insurance to protect you in the unlikely event of your claim being denied. In some cases, however, this insurance may not be necessary. You may have Before The Event (BTE), insurance already included in your home insurance policy.

Personal injury claims are subject to a time limit. The Limitation Act 1980 generally sets a three-year time limit for filing a claim for compensation.

The time limit can either begin on the date of the accident, or when you become aware that another person’s failures contributed to the accident in the which you were injured.

There are exceptions. Please call the above number for more information.
What percentage do No Win No Fee Lawyers take?

If you win your case, No Win No Fee solicitors may deduct a success fee. The percentage they can charge is limited to 25% by Conditional Fee Agreement.

In certain cases, the success fee for working with our solicitors could be lower if you are interested in working with them.

What happens if I lose my No Win No Fee case?

Because there is always a chance that solicitors will not get paid for unsuccessful claims, they tend to only accept cases with a high probability of success.

However, every claim is not successful. If your claim is not successful, you will not be charged a success fee.

What is the Maximum I Can Claim?

General and special damages are possible in a successful claim. General damages are compensation for pain and suffering resulting from any psychological or physical injuries caused by negligence.

A medical appointment may be scheduled for you. This will provide a detailed report about your condition. This report can be combined with other medical evidence to help you value your injuries.

A document known as the Judicial College Guidelines is also used to value claims. This publication provides compensation brackets for injuries of different severity.

To give you an idea about the potential compensation you might receive for different injuries, we have created a table based on figures from JCG. These figures should not be considered as an estimate as you may receive a different settlement after a No Win No Fee personal accident claim.

Call our team if you don’t see your injury on the list. Based on your specific circumstances, an advisor can help you estimate the value of your claim.
