Gelligaer no-win, no-fee
The solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a Gelligaer no-win, no-fee claim if you have been injured in any way as a result of the actions of another person.
When it comes to the personal injuries you can make a Gelligaer, no-win, no-fee claim for, there are many different kinds.
Physical injuries: visible
One of the most common form of personal injury is a physical injury that is clearly visible. These can include broken bones, lacerations and amputations.
These types of injuries can range from the very severe to relatively minor; however, if they were caused by someone else then you are perfectly within your rights to make a Gelligaer, no-win, no-fee claim against the responsible individual.
Physical injuries: not visible
It is not just physical injuries that you can see that you could claim compensation for. For example, one of the most common forms of injury that you can sustain as a result of a road traffic accident is whiplash. This injury can be exceptionally painful and while there is no cure other than rest and time for the most part it is a relatively minor, if inconvenient, injury. However, the problem with whiplash is that it is not visible. You cannot see that someone has whiplash, and it’s not even something that can be diagnosed via x-ray easily. You may not have to wear any supportive bandaging either during your recovery.
Personal injury to health
Another form of injury that you could be able to make a Gelligaer, no-win, no-fee claim for involves issues directly affecting your health. For example, if you have contracted food poisoning as a result of eating at a restaurant with poor hygiene standards.
People are often unsure if they can make a claim in such situations as there is no real “injury” in the terms that we often talk about, but a sickness such as food poisoning can last for weeks, and have ongoing complications depending on your general health at the time. In fact, the elderly or the young can be at particular risk of such an illness and may require hospitalisation as a result.
As part of this group of personal injury claims there is also clinical negligence. If you have received substandard medical care from any professional body then you could be entitled to compensation. This can include a failure to treat correctly or a misdiagnosis in your condition.
