Have you looked for a lawyer in Llanbedr after being hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault?Accidents happen all the time. They can happen anywhere from small villages like Llanbedr in Wales to large cities, like Cardiff, Birmingham and London. Accidents do not pick on people solely due to gender, ability, race, age or any other factors. An accident is simply a set of circumstances that seem to conspire and cause someone damage.
Unfortunately, as our lawyers are all too aware, some people are victims of accidents as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence.
The first this you should do is seek medical advice following your accident!
Some of us are not very good at seeking help from medical professionals. For some, just getting an appointment at their GP practice can be a nightmare. For others, the thought of sitting in a busy Accident and Emergency Department is also the stuff of nightmares. However, it really is very important that you get your injury or injuries checked out if you’ve been hurt.
This is a must if you intend on claiming compensation! Our lawyers can only help you make a claim for compensation if you have sought medical advice. This can be from a one-off medical appointment to both confirm your injuries and ascertain whether they are not life-changing. However, for many people who claim compensation, medical treatment can be a long series of appointments. These can range from regular trips to the GP to hospital appointments with consultants and other medical personnel.
Seeking treatment is one thing. However, you also need to know there are two other factors that simply must be present in order for you to make a successful compensation claim with our lawyers:
- The accident or incident in which you were hurt must not have been your fault. Somebody else, whether that is an individual or a company, must be responsible for the event that occurred.
- You must also make your claim within 3 years of the date you had your accident. This deadline is unmovable, even by our expert lawyers. Make sure that you make your compensation claim in good time!
