What is a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement) or ‘No win no fee’ agreement?
This is the agreement that you sign as our client and we sign as your solicitor. The agreement means that if you lose your case, we won’t ask you to pay anything. If you do win, the other side will pay most of our costs. Call us to discuss the costs of making your claim if you win.
Apart from my injuries, what else am I entitled to claim for?
Here are some examples of common losses that are incurred after an accident:
Loss of earnings
Travelling expenses to medical appointments
Relatives’ travelling expenses

Is there a time limit for me to make a claim?
In almost all cases, for either an accident or diagnosis of a work-related illness you have three years to make a claim. If the accident happened when you were under the age of 18, you have three years from your 18th birthday to make your claim. On rare occasions you might still be able to make a claim outside of the three year time limit. We recommend that you make your claim as soon as possible in order to avoid any deadlines.
