If you are a resident of Llanfyllin and have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, you may experience some difficulties in finding a firm of injury lawyers in Llanfyllin to represent you. If that is the case, whether you live in Llanfyllin or elsewhere, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. Although you generally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, the sooner you begin the process the better, as, if your claim has to go to court, it could be years, rather than months before you receive any compensation for your injury.

Accidents in public places
A public place is anywhere that is accessible to the general public. It could be the street, or a building such as a restaurant, bank, museum, cinema and so on. If you have an accident in the street, you should inform the police and the local authority whose responsibility it is to maintain pavements and roads. If you trip and injure yourself because of a piece of broken paving, for example, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries from the local authority. However, if you fall over a loose manhole cover (for example) you would have to make a claim against the utilities company whose property it is.
If you slip, trip or fall in a building (a shop for example) because of a spillage of food or liquid, and there were no hazard signs in place, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the shop because the staff had been negligent and not cleared up the spillage. You should inform a member of staff and have details of the accident (and names and contact numbers of witnesses) logged in the accident book.
You always need to seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries however minor they may seem at the time.
