Under UK law, if you have suffered an injury due to something that was not your fault, you are entitled to financial compensation to offset any costs and loss of earnings that occurred because of that
It is our belief that everyone is entitled to quality legal representation when they have been involved in an incident that was not their fault.
Obviously, top-class personal injury lawyers do not work for free and their costs have to be paid for – in order to facilitate this at no cost to you as the injured party, a conditional fee agreement is put in place.
The conditional fee agreement is simply another term for ‘no win no fee’. It is an arrangement that states that if your claim is unsuccessful, you will not need to pay a contingency fee for your personal injury lawyer’s services.
In these cases, your lawyer will take out an insurance policy on your behalf to cover any costs during the claim, whether they be medical costs, court fees or other expenses.
Through this process, you will not have to face any costs or hidden fees at all.
When your compensation is awarded, all the legal fees will be recovered from the losing party, whose liability has been proven in the case.
As part of the conditional fee agreement, the no win no fee solicitors will take a small percentage of the award as a success fee. At Cute Injury, this is never more than 25% of the total award.
By tying our fortunes in with yours, our personal injury lawyers are guaranteed to work at their very best to secure the largest compensation award possible for you.
In order to provide a fair level of compensation across the UK, courts work with a defined set of guidelines for determining the final compensation payout for personal injury claims.
This amount differs greatly across a variety of injuries from a few hundred pounds for minor injuries and bruising, through to many hundreds of thousands for life-changing conditions such as paralysis.

With the number of cars on the road growing year-by-year, the number of collisions leading to injury remains high despite improvements in car safety features.
There is a wide range of injuries that receive compensation, from whiplash claims to awards to provide support for a lifetime of paralysis and even in the saddest cases, posthumous car accident claims on behalf of the family for accidental death.
While at work your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe
The duty of care extends to:
If you have suffered an incident at work due to your employer failing to adequately perform their duty of care, then you will be entitled to reasonable compensation.
Examples of cases which Cute Injury have successfully brought to completion include:
Just as your employer has a duty of care, so too does the owner of any public venue, whether that be a local gym or the car park of a supermarket – and many of the same health and safety regulations apply.
Situations such as poor lighting in a club stairwell that leads to a fall, or potholes in the road that causes a twisted ankle while walking are among those where a compensation claim can be successfully won.
Food poisoning after eating in a restaurant is another area where a personal injury lawyer can help – the restaurant’s duty of care extends to supplying you with suitable food that will not cause harm. If you have suffered from food poisoning, whether in the UK or if you want to make a holiday sickness claim for something that happened abroad, Cute Injury can help.
It is distressing that the very people to whom we entrust our health and our lives can sometimes be the very ones who cause us harm.
While the vast majority of health professionals are of the very finest quality, sometimes things happen during medical procedures that can cause additional problems.
Making a claim for medical or clinical negligence can be a long and slow process, with competent solicitors on both sides of the situation doing their best to understand the complexities of the situation and reach a fair conclusion. Cute Injury lawyers have a wealth of experience with medical negligence cases, both against the NHS and in private healthcare.
If you have suffered from a situation where a doctor or other healthcare professional has been negligent in their care, then we can help.
In the UK the law is that any personal injury claim must be started within three years of the diagnosis of the problem.
For most cases, this means three years since the accident, but for some (for example, an asbestos-related condition from long-term exposure in previous years that lies undiagnosed for decades) that time can start as soon as a medical diagnosis is made.
If you believe you have a legitimate claim, call Cute Injury today. Our expert advisors will be able to make a preliminary assessment of your case before passing it on to a specialised personal injury solicitor who will get back to you at a time convenient to you.
Making that call could make a huge difference to your life – with a financial injection of thousands at no risk to you.
