If you have fallen victim to serious injuries after a car accident in Cardiff and that accident wasn’t your fault, then you should consider finding out whether you are eligible for compensation. You should do this as soon as possible after the accident, because although you will generally have three years to make a claim, your case will stand a better chance of success if you set it in motion while the details are clear in your mind.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you establish whether you have good grounds to bring a case. We can also advise on the kinds of evidence you should keep to support your claim and get the amount of compensation you deserve.
What can I claim for after a car accident in Cardiff?
You will usually receive an amount for the injuries you have received. If they have prevented you from working, you could also receive money to compensate for loss of earnings. If your future potential for working will be affected, you may receive a sum of money for this too. You are also entitled to reimbursement of money you have had to pay out for additional medical expenses, such as prescription charges, and transport costs to and from related appointments. It’s therefore vital that you keep records of all these and receipts too where applicable.
Finally, if you need help around the home or additional childcare because you cannot cope without it, money for this may be argued for as well. Again, keep any receipts for expenses like this – it will make it much easier for your solicitor to claim what you are owed.
Will I have to go to court to settle my claim?
Not necessarily. Most cases we deal with can be settled without the need to go to court. Our expertise usually enables us to negotiate a decent sum in compensation from the party responsible through correspondence. If you do have to go to court, though, you won’t be alone – your solicitor will be there to represent you. So it may not be as intimidating as you think.
