Frequently asked questions
What sort of accident can I claim for?
You can make an accident claim with experienced injury solicitors in Pencoed following any sort of accident; how and where it happened doesn’t matter – it’s why! If your accident wasn’t your fault, you can claim. You can check that the circumstances of your accident meet the criteria for claiming by calling our helpline.
How long do I have to claim?
You have three years from the date you were injured in which to submit your claim for compensation. But please don’t claim until you are fully recovered, else you may not get all the compensation you are entitled to.
How much compensation am I likely to get?
There isn’t a set amount for particular injuries, as everyone is affected differently – a broken leg is going to have a larger impact on the finances of a self-employed labourer than it is on someone who works in an office. But you can get an estimate of how much you could get by using the compensation calculator tool on our website.
Do you handle claims for work-related stress?
Yes, although it’s called ‘personal injury compensation’ you can also make an accident claim in Pencoed for an illness, or a psychological condition, including work-related stress.
Will I have to go to court?
It is possible, but unlikely. Your accident claim will more likely be settled successfully in an out-of-court agreement.
Can I get legal aid?
Sadly not, the Government stopped legal aid funding for personal injury claims in 1998, which is why we are here, to fill the gap by offering legal representation under no-win, no-fee* contracts. However, there are no ongoing fees to pay and nothing to pay at all if your claim is unsuccessful.
Please call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 if using a mobile.
