The small coastal town of Llantwit Major lies in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales, around 15 miles from Cardiff. The town grew in the 20th century as RAF personnel from the St Athan base settled here, but today it still retains its traditional 15th century buildings and cobbled streets. With a population of 13,366 in 2001, the nearby Collugh Beach attracts surfers throughout the summer months.
Anybody who has been injured in a surfing accident or any other type of accident in the town may struggle when it comes to finding a law firm in Llantwit Major that specialises in personal injury claims. A far better idea may be to contact a nationwide firm of injury solicitors, like Accident Advice Helpline.
It’s true that playing sports or taking part in extremes sports carries a risk of injury. But what if you have been injured and somebody else is to blame? For example if you are taking surfing lessons with a local surf school and you’ve been injured due to poor instruction or faulty equipment you’ve hired, who is at fault for your accident? You could make a personal injury claim and the surf school or instructor could be held liable for your injuries, if they have been negligent. Accident Advice helpline can advise you as your law firm in Llantwit Major.
Surfing injuries have the potential to be incredibly serious, and can range from cuts, bruises and fractures to serious head or spinal injuries that could leave you permanently mentally and/or physically disabled. You could even make a claim for compensation on behalf of a family member who has been seriously injured in a surfing accident. There’s no need to use a local law firm in Llantwit Major, when you could just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline.
How much compensation could you get?
The amount of compensation you could get for your surfing or extreme sports accident depends on what has happened and how serious your injuries are. So if you have suffered a life-changing injury, you’re more likely to be awarded a substantial sum in compensation, taking into account the impact your injuries have had on your life.
For example if you’re unable to return to work or look after yourself, we’ll consider these factors when working out your settlement.
