If you live in Llantrissant you may not be able to find any injury lawyers Llantrissant-based, although there will be plenty of these in nearby Cardiff to help you file any type of personal injury compensation claim you may have. The problem is that you need to find a firm of injury lawyers in Llantrissant, or elsewhere, that have the required expertise and experience to win the maximum amount of compensation for you. If you have any problems in locating suitable injury lawyers to represent you, then call us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and advice regarding any aspect of your potential claim.
You usually have three years in which to make a claim, unless you were injured in an accident covered by international conventions. These include, but are not limited to:-
- accidents aboard a sea-going vessel;
- accidents that happen in the air; and
- accidents at any airport in the world if that country is a signatory of the Montreal Convention.
You also have only two years to claim compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you were injured during a crime in England, Wales or Scotland.

Another reason for seeking out injury lawyers is to claim compensation for an illness which you can prove you contracted because of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to make a claim for this type of illness.
You will probably need the services of an injury lawyer who works on a no-win, no fee basis as there is no legal aid for personal injury compensation claim cases these days.
Claiming for a work-related illness
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their employees and failure to do so can result in personal injury claims, because an employer has neglected to carry out his or her duty. These are covered by public liability insurance which employers legally have to have. Money paid to employees for personal injury claims does not come out of the pockets of employers.
