    Aberdare road traffic accident claims


    Have you been injured in a road traffic accident and do you come from Aberdare? You might be able to prove that you were not to blame in any way for the accident, and so you could be thinking about making Aberdare road traffic accident claims. Of course, as well as proving that you were not responsible for the accident, you must also be able to prove that it was the fault of another person.

    Making Aberdare road traffic accident claims

    You usually have three years from the date of an accident to file an Aberdare road traffic accident claim, if the accident occurred within the British Isles. You should have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident, as your medical record is a crucial piece of evidence. It is used to determine how much compensation you will be entitled to.

    In a lot of accidents, the police are called to the scene. They will undertake an investigation into the cause of the accident and then write a report. You will also need this if you are to make Aberdare road traffic accident claims.

    How much compensation will I get for my injuries?

    While it is impossible to say with any degree of certainty how much you might receive in compensation, it is possible to inform you of what factors will count towards the amount you receive. There are two categories of damages, special and general. Basically, general damages are awarded for the pain, distress and suffering your injuries caused you, and compensation for loss of amenity if you are unable to do something that in the past, before your accident, gave you pleasure; perhaps a hobby such as gardening, for example. If your job meant more to you than being simply a job that brought you an income, and you can no longer do it, then you could also expect to be compensated for this.

    Another category of damages is special damages, which will reimburse the expenses you incurred because of your injuries. For example, if you have receipts you can be reimbursed for prescription charges, nursing care, any modifications needed to adapt your home to your new physical circumstances, and so on.
