The Collaboration for Accident Prevention and Injury Control (CAPIC) is a collaboration of organisations and individuals supporting injury prevention in Wales, supported by the Welsh government. The organisation supports a network of injury prevention practitioners and provides:
- Access to information and newsletters on injury prevention initiatives
- Information on the scale of injury problems in Wales
- Access to guides and tools to prevent injury
- Collation of strategies and reviews relating to injury prevention
Established in 1996 by Professor Stephen Palmer, the organisation included clinicians from a range of backgrounds including public health, emergency medicine and paediatric. Today, the CAPIC receives support from the Welsh Assembly Government and holds five yearly conferences, as well as providing support for injury prevention training in Communities First areas.
Claiming compensation for your injuries
It’s a fact of life that accidents happen, but if more could have been done to prevent your accident and subsequent injuries, you may be able to claim compensation. For example, if you are involved in a road traffic accident on a poorly maintained road, or if you are struck by an emergency vehicle, you could make a claim. There’s a three year time limit in place to make a claim, but it makes sense to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident has occurred. They will be able to advise you whether you’re eligible to make a claim, and the amount you will receive will take into account any loss of earnings, your pain and suffering and the cost of any medical treatment or ongoing care that you may need in future, as a result of your injuries. Whilst organisations like the CAPIC work to prevent accidents and injuries, accidents still have the potential to happen at any time, and if somebody else is to blame for your accident, you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
