Our legal team specialises in dealing with accident and personal injury claims only. We have been providing legal services in the UK since 1988 and are accredited through the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, as well as The Law Society and, are regulated and authorised by the SRA.
After your free initial consultation, we will let you know if we feel that you have a successful case for personal injury and if we are able to initiate proceedings on a CFA. Our ‘Plain Speaking Approach’ means that we will ensure that you understand the entire claim process, there are no hidden or unexpected fees and that you’re dealing with qualified and experienced injury claims experts throughout your claim for compensation and aftercare. We are also able to discuss other ways to fund your claim if you wish.
If you’re happy to proceed on a conditional fee basis, we will weigh up your case and start the relevant paperwork. At no point up until the conditional fee agreement documents are signed will you be obligated to use Smith Jones as your ‘no win no fee’ solicitors. We will make clear all fees before you instruct us and they will be capped and clearly outlined; so even if your case takes longer than expected or goes on to court – if your case is successful then any ‘success fees’ payable to Smith Jones will never be more than what you expected before you signed the conditional fee agreement.
As a general principle, the loser of a case is often expected to pay the winner’s legal fees, court costs, expert’s fees (such as doctors or collision experts) and other costs associated with the claim (disbursements).
It is, for this reason, that in conjunction with the CFA that you are advised to have a form of legal costs protection insurance which will cover your opponent’s expenses and your own disbursements should your claim be unsuccessful. We will be able to arrange this insurance on your behalf and will discuss it further with you during your free initial consultation.

Who Can Make A ‘No Win No Fee’ Claim?
Anyone who has been injured or fallen ill as a result of the negligence of another party or an accident that wasn’t their fault is eligible to make a claim.
The first question most of our new clients ask is “can I make a claim?”. To answer this, we will need to speak with you and find out more about your accident and the injuries that you sustained. Furthermore, on occasion, the injured party may not be able to make a claim on their own, so may need someone to make a claim on their behalf. Below a list of circumstances which may require the injured party to ask somebody to make a claim on their behalf. This is called a ‘litigation friend’ and may include making a claim:
- On behalf of a child before the child turns 18. If the child wishes to make their own claim, provided somebody has not already made a claim on their behalf, they have until three years after their 18th birthday to do so.
- For someone who currently, for whatever reason, may not have the capacity to deal with the legal proceedings.
- On behalf of a loved one who has passed away.

Making A Claim If Injured In A Public Location
When you leave your front door, whether it’s to the park, to town, or any other place in public, it isn’t unreasonable to expect the day to go without the risk of injury.

Smith Jones Solicitors have helped thousands of our clients following accidents that weren’t their fault. Common no win no fee cases we have dealt with include:
- Supermarket Accident Claims
- Sports injuries (including gym accidents and horse riding)
- Dog Bite Claims or other animal injury claims
- Children’s accidents (including at school)
- Accidents in areas owned or managed by local councils
- Trips and falls in a public location
- School Accidents
