Although Powys has the largest land mass of all Welsh counties, it has the least dense population. It’s quite difficult to travel from north to south because of the mountains. Brecon, Newtown, Ystradgynlais and Welshpool are some of the largest towns in Powys.
You may not find a firm of injury solicitors in Powys who have the specialist you need on the team. This is because there are many different types of accident, injury and illness, and different solicitors specialise in different aspects of personal injury compensation law. For example, if you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you wouldn’t require the services of injury solicitors in Powys who mainly specialised in clinical negligence claims and those made by members of the armed forces.
If you have any difficulties in finding appropriate injury solicitors in Powys, or elsewhere, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our helpline numbers below.
Injury solicitors in Powys
Injury solicitors in Powys can help you to file a claim for injuries sustained in an accident if you, with their help, can prove the accident was in no way your fault. You usually have three years from the date of your accident in which to file a claim if it occurred in the UK. However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years in which to claim, so check exactly how long you have by contacting a firm of injury solicitors in Powys, or call us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
You may also need the services of injury solicitors if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. The other person could be the kitchen staff at a restaurant, or your employer, for example. You have three years from the date of your first diagnosis of the illness in which to file a claim.
Powys is predominantly a centre for agriculture, and despite some people’s idyllic view of farming, those employed in this sector understand how difficult the work involved is. Livestock are dangerous with which to work, and have caused fatal injuries both to farm workers and members of the public. Cows can become spooked, and as they are heavy beasts can inflict severe injuries on a person that can prove fatal.
Farm vehicles are the main cause of death on farms, as they can overturn and crush the driver. Farm workers can also fall to their death if they are working at heights. In fact, the Health and Safety Executive point out that there are more fatal injuries in farming than in any other employment sector.
