Builth Wells is a town in the county of Powys situated in mid-Wales, at the confluence of the River Wye and the River Irfon. The name of the town has interesting roots, which are different for each word of the name. ‘Builth’ is an Anglicisation of the Welsh Buellt, which derives from the word Bu, meaning ‘Ox,’ and gellt, meaning ‘pasture’, all of which presumably points to an early use of the land in the area. The ‘Wells’ part of the town’s name was added in the 19th century when the springs discovered near Builth Wells made it a popular visitor attraction. This popularity as a visitor attraction did not last, however, and as such the town has not boomed as other tourist attractions, meaning that it does still have a population of just 2,352 according to the 2001 census. This makes the settlement a fairly small town, and as such also means that for injury lawyers in Builth Wells there won’t be all too many personal injury compensation claims.

However, that does not mean that Builth Wells cannot give rise to any claims. For instance, for injury lawyers in Builth Wells the area can produce a claim regarding a road traffic collision, but the simple fact is that it is less likely than in a larger urban centre. If a Builth Wells resident does find themselves entitled to claim compensation, however, they will find the following information to be of crucial importance.
When and Why Is Compensation Awarded?
The law states that you are entitled to claim personal injury compensation if you have been injured or fallen ill and another party, be it an individual or an organisation, was demonstrably to blame. This compensation is available in these circumstances as a means of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have suffered.
How Long Is There to Claim?
In most cases, you must begin claims proceedings within three years of an accident or incident, or else you will unfortunately lose your entitlement to claim. This is not the case, however, with claims that deal with injuries to minors or industrial diseases, which have different time restrictions placed upon them.

The best way to ensure that you get all of the compensation that you deserve is to trust the handling of your claim to the very best in the business. This is undoubtedly Accident Advice Helpline.
