What Does No Win No Fee Mean?

No Win No Fee arrangements such as Conditional Fee Agreements are a way for people to engage the services of a personal injury solicitor without paying upfront or ongoing fees. 

The agreement sets out the success fee that’s payable should your claim succeed. The success fee is capped by law and is taken from your compensation as a percentage. However, if your claim fails, you will not need to pay the success fee to your solicitor.

The solicitors from our panel all operate on this basis and could help you through the personal injury claims process to get the compensation you deserve. If you hold a valid claim that shows someone breached the duty of care you were owed causing you to sustain harm, an advisor could connect you with a solicitor from our panel.

Potential Accident Claim Scenarios

There are three main pieces of legislation that seek to protect safety and wellbeing at work, in public places and on the roads, including the:

  • Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974: As per this piece of workplace legislation, employers are required to do everything they reasonably can to remove or reduce hazards that pose a risk in the workplace.
  • Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957: This legislation sets out the duty of care for the person in control of a public space. It states that they should take all reasonable steps to prevent members of the public from experiencing harm. 
  • Highway Code: This outlines the responsibilities all road users have to prevent one another from experiencing harm while navigating the roads. 

A failure to uphold the duty of care you’re owed could result in the following accidents:

  • An employer may fail to carry out regular risk assessments to allow them to address any hazards that arise. As a result, you may use a piece of equipment that is faulty, such as a ladder, causing you to fall from a height and sustain a severe head injury. 
  • You may have informed your waiter of an allergy before placing an order but they may have failed to correctly inform you of the allergens on their menu. As a result, you may have experienced a severe allergic reaction to the food. 
  • A road user may have operated their vehicle while under the influence of drugs causing them to knock you off your bicycle. As a result, you may have sustained multiple injuries including damage to your spinal cord.

If you have experienced a similar type of harm in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, please get in touch about the No Win No Fee services our panel of solicitors offers.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Personal Injury Claim?

According to the Limitation Act 1980, there is typically a three-year time limit to make a personal injury claim. This date can start from either the date of the accident or the date that you connected your injuries or the accident to negligence.

There are exceptions to this three-year rule. For example, if the injured person is under the age of 18, the three-year period does not start until their 18th birthday. During this time, an application can be made to act as a litigation friend on behalf of the injured person. This application could be made by a friend or family member or someone else who has the person’s best interests at heart. 

A similar exception may apply to those who lack the mental capacity to launch a claim themselves. In these cases, the three-year time limit is frozen and won’t start again until the date the person recovers their mental capacity. Whilst the time limit is suspended, someone could apply to act as a litigation friend.

In addition to understanding the time limits involved in making a personal injury claim, you should also consider the steps you can take to strengthen your claim. For example, you could gather relevant evidence such as:

  • Witness contact details
  • CCTV or dashcam footage
  • Doctor notes or hospital records
  • Photos of the scene or cause of the accident
  • Photos of your injuries

Additionally, you could seek legal advice from a No Win No Fee solicitor to help you start your claim. 

Compensation For Personal Injury Claims

The payout you receive following a successful personal injury claim may consist of general damages and special damages.

General damages compensate for the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity you have experienced because of your injuries. No Win No Fee solicitors often refer to a document called the Judicial College Guidelines to help them when valuing how much your injuries are worth. The guidelines set out bracket compensation awards for different injuries which we have used in the table below.

However, they are not intended to be guaranteed amounts as other factors are considered when valuing your claim. For instance, medical evidence will also be used to assess the severity of your injuries. 

For that reason, please only use the figures as a guide.

Modest Ankle Injury (d)Injuries might include less serious sprains and fractures.Up to £12,900
Moderate Psychiatric Damage (c)The person will have a good prognosis and will have made significant improvement.£5,500 to £17,900


Special damages aim to reimburse the financial expenses that you have incurred as a result of your injuries, such as:

  • Loss of past and future earnings 
  • Medical expenses
  • Travel costs to hospital or work

To claim these amounts back it’s essential to have documented proof of out-of-pocket expenses. This could include receipts, invoices, or payslips.
