    Brynmawr accident


    If you live in Brynmawr a Brynmawr accident can be a serious problem and the thought of the money you might receive as compensation can be extremely tempting.

    However, it might pay to wait a while before you make a claim.

    This article will look at the specific situation after a Brynmawr accident and show you the things to consider about timing…

    Help after a Brynmawr accident

    When you’ve been hurt in an accident, there are certain things to consider.

    The most important is getting the right treatment so you can get yourself back on your feet as soon as possible.

    Another consideration is money.

    We all live on the assumption that the money will keep coming in forever, and when that stops we often find ourselves uncertain what to do. For example, let’s imagine you live in Brynmawr and had an accident which means you’re unable to go to work. Because your employer is a heartless soul he’s not offering sick pay for the time you’re away.

    As a result, every day spent off work is costing you money.

    Therefore the thought of claiming compensation as soon as possible is tempting. When this happens you might be tempted by various companies and outfits who offer you what looks like instant compensation for your injuries.

    An insurance company might say it can help with a claim and have the money in your account within a few weeks.

    Should you wait longer?

    But there are virtues in waiting longer. The most obvious is that if you wait and use a reputable personal injury law firm you stand a better chance of gaining more compensation than might otherwise have been the case. They are the experts after all and they are much better positioned to press your claim.

    Taking your time could also lead to more compensation in the long run.

    When the courts assess your claim they will work, to a certain extent through the estimates about your likely recovery time provided by any medical experts.

    However these might be wrong. A doctor might estimate recovery time as six months in which case the courts would calculate the lost earnings and other financial impacts on a six month timeline.

    But in reality it might take longer to recover – let’s say it takes nine months before you’re fully back at work again.

    This could mean that you have missed out on three months pay which should have been included in your compensation arrangements.
