To find out how much your accident in Troedythiw may be worth in terms of compensation please take our 30-second test. This will give you a good idea of what you can expect to receive.

Claiming for your accident in Troedythiw
One of the easiest ways for you to find out whether or not you meet the legal criteria to make a claim for compensation is to take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test.
The figure quoted won’t necessarily take into consideration that you may be entitled to reclaim any lost earnings as a result of time taken off due to your accident. This acts as a rough indication. For a more accurate and in-depth assessment, you will need to discuss these with your solicitor as your claim progresses.
When it comes to making a claim for compensation following an accident it is important that you initiate the claim within three years of the date of the accident. It does not matter if the claim is not settled within that time period, as long as you have started the process. There are some situations in which you may be able to make a claim for compensation after the three year time limit has passed, however, these are usually exceptional circumstances so it is best not to take a risk and leave it too late.
