Guide to claiming compensation after an accident in Monmouthshire
If you have been hurt in an accident in Monmouthshire, we may be able to help you get compensation for your injury and any inconvenience your accident caused you. This short guide will tell you what you need to know about claiming personal injury compensation.
What is a personal injury?
- Personal injury can be any illness or injury, psychological or physical.
This could be anything from whiplash to a life changing physical condition such as food poisoning or asbestosis, from stress to severe post traumatic stress disorder.
Hopefully your injury is a relatively minor one, but even minor injuries can have serious consequences for our well being and our finances, that is why you are entitled to compensation.
What accidents ‘count’?
If your personal injury/illness was caused by an accident, you can claim compensation, providing that the accident was someone else’s fault, and it took place within the past three years.
This accident may have happened:
- At work
- On the road
- In a public place
- Because of a faulty appliance or service
- At home (following poor work by a trader for example)
- Or on holiday
