Personal injury law can be confusing which is why it pays to know the basics before you start. If you’re looking for accident claims solicitors in Llandrindod Wells, here are some things you might need to know before you decide whether or not you want to make a personal injury claim.
When you can and can’t claim
Under the law you’ll be entitled to claim compensation if you can show that the accident was not your fault and was the fault of someone else. The accident must have happened within the last three years and you must have been injured badly enough to have had an impact on your quality of life.
This might include health problems which make it difficult to get out and about in the same way as you used to, or it might be something which has affected your ability to earn money. In short, if you required medical attention there’s a good chance you will be entitled to claim compensation.
Accident claims solicitors in Llandrindod Wells
Most personal injury claims are settled in the small claims court. When cases go this far, you’ll be in the position of the claimant which means you’ll have to prove your case to the full satisfaction of the court. The other side gets the benefit of being considered innocent until proven guilty, so if there is any doubt in the case, the courts will have no option but to find in their favour.
The good news is that the vast majority of personal injury claims do not go as far as the courts. That’s because the other side normally makes a settlement offer before it gets that far. It works in their interests because they do not want to shoulder the expense of a court case – especially if this is a court case their legal team has advised them they are unlikely to win. Instead they will attempt to cut their losses and make an offer to you.
When you start making a claim you may want to know how much compensation you might be entitled to. We can offer an estimate through our free online compensation calculator tool.
