When can I claim after an accident and injury in Pontypool?
In general terms, you are able to make a claim for compensation if you have been involved in an accident for which someone else was to blame. They must have been acting carelessly or negligently, or otherwise failed in their duty of care towards you. This could have been your employer, or a company or statutory body on whose premises you were at the time. You could make a claim against an individual if, for instance, they have caused a road traffic accident in which you were involved.
The injuries you have suffered must have been serious enough to warrant you seeking medical treatment. They could have been physical, such as a broken limb, concussion or whiplash. Or you may be suffering from a psychological illness as a result, such as stress or depression.
Claimants must usually set their cases in motion within three years of the date of the accident. Exceptions to this include situations where the accident victim was a minor at the time of the accident; or where the injury is an industrial disease, related to working conditions at a previous or current place of employment.
