A client's complaint will be acknowledged in writing or by email within five business days of receipt, giving the name and job title of the individual handling the complaint, a copy of the Company's formal internal complaints procedure will also be provided.

A substantive reply will be provided within 8 weeks from receipt of the complaint. The reply will, if appropriate, offer a settlement or final response, which is expected to be acceptable to the complainant or alternatively, a holding response, which explains why it is not yet possible to resolve the complaint with indication when the company will make further contact. A copy of the ombudsman services standard explanatory leaflet will be included with this response.

Whatever the response, the complainant must also be informed that he may refer the handling of the complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service if he is dissatisfied with the response or delay.

If the decision is made that redressing the situation is appropriate, the Company will provide the complainant with fair compensation for any acts or omissions for which it was responsible and comply with the offer of redress if the complainant accepts.

However, if the complainant rejects the offer of financial redress or an apology, an offer to redo the work or refund a fee, then the complaint needs to be forwarded to the Financial Ombudsman Service who can be contacted at the following address;

If you are looking to instruct a solicitor to pursue a personal injury claim on your behalf, but have concerns about how much this might cost you, ‘no win, no fee’ could be the solution you are looking for.

No win no fee* is the common name given to Conditional Fee Agreements or CFAs. The basic principle of a no win no fee* agreement is that if a claim is unsuccessful the person making the claim (the claimant) is not responsible for paying his or her legal fees, whereas if the claim is successful the claimant is responsible for paying his or her legal fees - although this will usually be recovered against the other side (the defendant) or more accurately, their insurance company. No win no fee agreements or CFAs were introduced to ensure that everyone had access to justice regardless of their financial means. No win no fee arrangements are more common in personal injury cases and without them some claimants would not be able to afford access to the justice they are entitled to. If you would like to discuss making a personal injury claim on a no win, no fee basis, contact Personal Injury Claims Bristol today.

*Other costs may be payable

**Personal Injury Claims Bristol have a team of technical claims qualifiers who will speak with you and if you have, in our opinion, a valid claim we can refer your case to one of the personal injury solicitors on our panel.

Personal Injury Claims solicitors Bristol - No Win No Fee **

When you first contact us about making a no win, no fee claim, we will need to find out a little more about exactly what happened to you. This will help our lawyers to understand how likely your claim is to succeed, how much your claim might be worth, and whether we can actually take your claim on on a no win, no fee basis. If we are unable to offer you a no, win, no fee arrangement, we can also provide you with advice on alternative arrangements for financing your claim.

Before entering into a no win no fee agreement with your solicitor** you should ensure that you are familiar with its terms and understand them. You should not be afraid to ask your solicitor** to explain anything that is unclear. The most important thing to be aware of in a no win no fee agreement is that whilst you may not be responsible for your own legal fees, should your case be unsuccessful, you may be liable for the defendant’s legal fees although your personal injury solicitor** is obliged to discuss insurance options with you to cover these fees. You should also be aware that whilst you may not have to pay your legal fees you may have to pay your disbursements such as court fees.

If you would like to make a personal injury claim on a no win no fee basis then you should speak with our no win no fee* solicitor** in Bristol within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in your injury. Please note that any claim brought outside of this time may be barred and will require special permission from the court and the cost of making this application may not be covered by the no win no fee* agreement.

It is well known now that if you have suffered an injury as a result of a third party’s negligence then you could make a compensation claim against them because they are likely to have owed you a duty of care for your health and safety. For example, road users owe each other a duty of care, medical professionals owe their patients and duty of care, employers owe their employees a duty of care, occupiers owe those who pass over their land a duty of care and so on.
