    Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen personal injury claims


    Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen personal injury claims can seem as difficult to get right as it is to pronounce the name of the town. But perhaps a little guidance can help you out. So, here’s our quick 101 guide to how you can claim compensation.

    Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen personal injury claims

    The first thing to remember is the issue of blame. Under UK law, you will be able to claim compensation if you can prove that the accident was not your fault – and that by definition it was someone else’s. Because you’re the one bringing the clam the burden of proof will fall to you which means you’ll need to be dead certain about your facts.

    There is also a three year limit on making any claim. This means that when your injury is first diagnosed you have three years to make a claim. The only exception to this rule comes in relation to children. When they are injured that three year time limit does not start counting down until the age of 18. That doesn’t mean you can’t make a claim before the age of 18 but that you have a little more lee way.

    The final point to consider is the severity of the injury. The law states that in order to qualify for compensation you must have received an injury which is deemed to be bad enough to inflict a significant impact on your quality of life. What does this mean in practice? Well to put it simply anything that required medical attention may well entitle you to make a claim, but if not then we may be unable to help you out.

    Getting advice

    Using those factors you should be able to get a reasonably good idea about whether or not you are entitled to make a claim, but to really put you in the picture, you’ll also need to get advice from someone who really knows and understands the industry – which is where we come in.
