Trusted solicitors for Grimsby & Lincolnshire
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident or have developed a serious medical condition through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
The personal injury solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors have many years of experience in representing the people of Lincolnshire in No Win No Fee personal injury claims.
We understand that the period after an accident can be a stressful time, with clients often worrying about not being able to work and earn money.
Our solicitors have advised countless clients in your position and are on hand to discuss your potential claim now.
What is No Win No Fee?
“No Win No Fee” is the term commonly used to describe how personal injury claims are funded.
The legal term for a “No Win No Fee Agreement” is a Conditional Fee Agreement. These agreements are referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee Agreement”.
The nature of these no win no fee agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim is unsuccessful for any reason (liability or medical grounds for example) the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time spent up to that point in the claim process.
For taking this risk, it is common for all law firms to agree with a client at the start of the claims process, that the law firm will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. We cap our % fee at 25% of our client’s damages.
Law firms’ fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the losing party. For example, if your accident happened at work, we would claim against your employer’s Employers’ Liability insurance policy, not your employer personally. Or, if your accident happened in a public place, we would claim against the landowner’s Public Liability insurance policy, not the landowner personally.
So, how much does it cost to start a claim?
To start a personal injury claim, we do not require any upfront fees from our clients.
We are paid at the end of the claims process, so will work as hard as we can to get you the maximum amount of compensation.
If you have any questions about no win no fee agreements and how your claim will be funded then please contact our experts, we will be happy to discuss this with you.

How long do I have to claim?
The law in England & Wales states that you have 3 years after an accident to make a claim for personal injury. This 3 year period is commonly referred to as the “limitation period”.
In most cases, this 3 year period starts from the date of the accident or from the date of a diagnosis, or from the date you first linked your injury with exposure to the cause of your medical condition, which could be noise, asbestos, vibration, chemicals or dust.
There are however some exceptions to this 3 year time limit, especially in cases involving children or people without the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.
If you are unsure whether you can make a claim due to your accident taking place longer than 3 years ago, we recommend you contact our personal injury solicitors for Grimsby today, to discuss your personal circumstances.
Call us today on 01507 609027.
