Been injured in a road traffic accident? If so you could make an injury claim in Treorchy
Have you been involved in a road traffic accident where somebody else was to blame? It may be that the person who caused the accident was uninsured, or you may not have received sufficient payment via their insurance company. If you are out of pocket due to your accident then you could make an injury claim in Treorchy.
How much compensation could I be entitled to if I make an injury claim in Treorchy?
For many victims of road traffic accidents, it is not simply a pay-out for their physical damages that is required. Other costs mount up in the aftermath of an accident and these can be included when making an injury claim. If you are looking to claim compensation, then you should consider claiming for:
- Psychological damage and any therapy that is needed to correct this
- Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
- The cost of any medical care and treatments
- Any loss of personal belongings that has not been met by the insurance company
- Loss of earnings (current and future)
- If you needed to pay someone else to carry out tasks that you can no longer undertake due to your injuries, for example gardening or cleaning
By calling us at Accident Advice Helpline or taking our 30-second test, we can provide you with an estimate of the total amount of compensation that you could be entitled to.
Accident Advice Helpline’s guide for victims of road traffic accidents
- Call the Police to attend to the crash site. Even if the accident has not been very serious, it is useful to have the Police there as an independent witness. They may even be able to specify who was at fault in the accident.
- If you are able to, then take photos to show what has happened at the site of the incident. Remember most phones have cameras on them these days.
- If there have been any impartial witnesses who saw what happened then do collect their names and contact details. You may rely on their evidence when making your injury claim.
- Swap details with the other driver but do not enter into any conversations regarding who was to blame for the accident. Do not apologise or admit any kind of liability!
