Personal injury is a confusing enough topic for some people, and the unfortunate events that lead to a serious injury make the whole issue ten times more distressing. To relieve that stress it’s worth looking at injury compensation facts in Powys to help you to understand how the claims process works and what is involved.
First-time accident victims are often left requiring urgent medical care and attention for their injuries that will obviously range from a few cuts to serious, even life-threatening injuries depending on the accident.
With enough to worry about in terms of the diagnosis, the treatments needed and the recovery period ahead of them, the last thing any innocent accident victim needs is a complicated legal process that they don’t really understand.
That is why looking at injury compensation facts in Powys can be so beneficial – almost as beneficial as actually speaking to a personal injury solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline but we understand that some people like to do their own research first.
Top injury compensation facts in Powys
Road traffic accidents are by far the most common across the United Kingdom, and you might be able to claim for compensation even if you’re not actually the driver (or rider) of a vehicle involved.
Passengers and even pedestrians caught up in an accident while crossing the road, for example, may be eligible to make a claim if they’re injured on or near the road.
Another fact relates to the cost of legal representation and advice, a major sticking point for some potential claimants. They cannot afford to pay for a lawyer while they’re unable to work, but they want to make a claim, so what can you do?
Well, we work on a 100% no-win no-fee basis, which means that there are no upfront fees to pay for advice or representation.
The amount that you might be entitled to claim also varies. Some believe that there is a standard settlement figure for certain injuries, or they think that because another person received a certain figure for an incident that they have also been involved in, that’s what their claim will be worth.
That is not how the process works. Instead, we analyse a range of factors relating specifically to the case in question to ensure that each claimant gets exactly what the yare entitled to.
This means focussing on the severity of the accident and injuries sustained, the treatment received at the time and any on-going rehabilitation, the estimated recovery period and the financial implications of the incident.
