Have you been hurt in Welshpool? Based in the Welsh county of Powys, in historic Montgomeryshire, and just four miles from the border, the small town of Welshpool was found by the 2011 census to have fewer than 7,000 residents.
Three major trunk roads pass through the town, and the local economy is mainly focused on industry and agriculture.
Unfortunately, Welshpool’s small size doesn’t mean that accidents can’t or won’t happen in the town. They do occur – in workplaces (for example in the town’s various industrial estates), on roads and in public spots, where people can have slip, trip and fall mishaps.
Equally, there are also football, rugby union and rugby football clubs, not to mention hockey and cricket teams, so sporting accidents and injuries are not unheard of.
Just as with accidents anywhere else, being hurt in Welshpool can leave you with injuries which force you to take time off work, or having to make lengthy or expensive journeys for hospital treatment. Or you may have damaged your some personal property or need to buy additional prescriptions.
Claiming personal injury compensation can help some of these extra costs, and you can claim if the accident was down to someone else’s negligence and it happened within the last three years. The law is there to offer redress to those who have been hurt through no fault of their own. So you shouldn’t feel any qualms about claiming to reduce the unexpected and often significant financial impact of an accident.
You may even be able to claim if the accident injury was partly your fault – for example if you were hurt on the road and weren’t wearing a seat-belt – but the amount of the award may be less.
You can claim however severe or slight your injury, as long your claim is
supported by medical evidence.
