Llandysul’s claim to fame is that it is home to the Welsh Harp Centre which makes various kinds of harp, including the large traditional Welsh instrument and the smaller Celtic harps. If you are injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault in or around Llandysul, you would need the help of injury claims lawyers in Llandysul.
Why would I need injury claims lawyers in Llandysul or elsewhere?
If you have sustained injuries in an accident for which you were not to blame, you would need injury lawyers in Llandysul, or ones based elsewhere to help you build a case in order to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may also need the services of injury claims lawyers in Llandysul, or ones based anywhere else in the UK, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you could prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
How much compensation could you get?
No one can tell you accurately in advance how much you may be awarded in compensation. This is because the extent of your injuries would have to be assessed, and your doctor would be asked to provide a prognosis explaining how long it might take you to fully recover. If you were not expected to recover fully, then you could expect more compensation than if you could recover within one or two years. The more serious your injuries, the more you could expect to receive in compensation.
Compensation is for the pain, distress and suffering your injury or illness causes you and you can also claim for loss of amenity. This means that if, due to your injury, you can no longer pursue a hobby you enjoyed before, you can be compensated for this.
You can also claim compensation for loss of earnings if you can provide proof of earnings in the form of payslips and so on. The more you earned prior to your illness or injury, the more you would receive in compensation.
If you keep receipts you can also claim for expenses you incurred because of your injury, for example, taxi fares to and from hospital and prescription charges, as well as any treatment not provided free by the NHS.
Your injury lawyer will have to do some research into recent compensation awards for injuries similar to yours and consult the Judicial College’s guidelines which give amounts of compensation that can be awarded for injuries of varying degrees of severity.
