Are you looking for accident claims solicitors in Llantwit Major?
Whenever people think about personal injury law, they often seem to regard the entire concept as being one big subject. However, different accidents tend to require a slightly different approach, which is why most lawyers specialise in one or two areas of the law. If you’re looking for accident claims solicitors in Llantwit Major, therefore, you need to find someone who understands what you’re looking for.
Making a claim
Accident Advice Helpine has over 15 years experience in the field of personal injury claims and we can support you through initial information on accident claims solicitors in Llantwit Major to proceeding with your claim.
There are three common types of personal injury claims.
1. Road traffic accidents: If you’re injured while driving your car and the other driver is at fault you may be entitled to compensation. You will be claiming against their third party driving insurance which covers against damage inflicted on other road users. The challenge with this option is to find proof in those cases in which events are disputed. Independent witnesses can be very useful as can any photographic evidence at the time. The more information you can supply the stronger your case will be.
2. Accidents in the workplace: If your employer fails to take reasonable precautions to keep people safe while they are in the office you may be entitled to claim compensation. You’ll need full details of what happened and the extent of your injuries. Your employer will take out employee liability insurance and this is what you’ll be claiming against. The big fear for many people is that they will not be able to return to work after a claim. However, it is illegal for your employer to take any action against you because of a claim you have launched. If they do, then you may well have another claim to bring against them.
3. Slips, trips and falls in the street: Accidents in public often fall under the responsibility of the local authority. If they have failed to maintain an area of public property, they may be deemed to be responsible. Any compensation will be paid by their public liability insurance policy.
