What is a no win no fee accident in Stroud? The term “no win no fee” is something that is often used, and not everyone knows what it means.

What you need to know about a no win no fee accident in Stroud
This type of accident is one that can lead to a compensation claim through an injury lawyer. Some conditions have to be met by the potential claimant. These are that the accident:
- Must have occurred during the past three years
- Must have led to injury
- Must have been someone else’s fault
If what happened to you fulfils these criteria, you could make a claim and if you win your case, you will receive a compensation payout.
As for no win no fee, this means that your solicitor will work on your behalf without any need for you to make an upfront payment to us. If you don’t win your case, then we will not charge our legal fees. It really is that simple, and it gives you peace of mind while your case is proceeding.
What does compensation consist of?
The sum of money paid out when a case is successful is made up of two elements.
The first part is an amount for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that you have experienced as a result of the accident.
The second part is for the expenses that you have incurred because of the injuries you suffered. Perhaps you’ve had to pay for prescriptions, and book taxis to take you to hospital appointments. Maybe you’ve hired a home help to keep your house clean and tidy while you’ve been unable to do your household chores.
Loss of earnings also feature in this element of the payout, so make sure you keep hold of not just your receipts, but also your payslips. These will show how much you have earned, so if you’ve received less money while being off work sick, this can be proved.
What kinds of accident can be claimed for?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we take on cases arising from a range of accidents, such as workplace accidents, road traffic accidents, and accidents that happen in public places (e.g. slips and falls).
The injuries suffered vary from minor injuries, such as whiplash, to major injuries, such as severe head injuries or multiple fractures. Injury can be psychological as well as physical, so don’t assume that, because you’ve not suffered a physical injury, you won’t be eligible to claim.
