Are you looking for a law firm in Risca?
Have you been hurt in an accident that was not your fault? If so, you may be wondering about making a compensation claim. No doubt, you have plenty of questions. We aim to answer them below:
What is needed to make a claim? In order to make a claim, three things need to be true. Firstly, you need to be able to prove that the accident was not your fault and that someone else caused it. Secondly, the accident must have occurred within the past three years. Thirdly, you must have seen a medical professional for your injuries.
How much compensation will you get? Every case is different, so it is impossible to give you a definitive answer. Nevertheless, it is important to recognise that compensation is split into two parts. The first part is general damages. This is the amount of money you receive for the injuries you have suffered. The second part is special damages. This is the amount of money you will receive for the costs you have incurred because of your accident, such as travel expenses and loss of income. You can take the 30-second test on our website for an idea of how much you could receive.
How much will it cost to make a claim? The best thing to do is opt for a no-win, no-fee* service. By doing this, you won’t have to pay a big sum up front. Not only this, but you will only pay legal fees if your case is successful. By this point, you will have your compensation payout.
What evidence do you need to gather? Keep hold of anything you think will be useful for your case. Make sure you have receipts or proof of the expenses you have suffered so that you can claim special damages. You should also get the contact details of anyone that witnessed the accident. Moreover, taking photographs of your injuries (if visible) and the scene can help in some cases too.
