Are you looking for an expert no-win, no-fee lawyer in Newport?
Newport is a cathedral city in south-east Wales, located on the River Usk just 12 miles north-east of Cardiff. The third-largest city in Wales, its population was 145,700 in 2011. Newport grew in the 19th century to become the largest coal exporter in Wales. Today it’s still a major centre for engineering and manufacturing, with many technology companies based here.
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work, finding a lawyer in Newport who specialises in personal injury law may prove challenging. That’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help. Our team of specialist personal injury lawyers works on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, and we have 16 years’ experience.
How were you injured at work?
Engineering and manufacturing jobs have the potential to be dangerous, if health and safety regulations are not adhered to. If your employer has been negligent and this has resulted in you being injured, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation – and you don’t need to use a local lawyer in Newport to do so. Here are just a few examples of the types of injuries you could sustain:
- Crush injuries from trapping your hand or arm in heavy machinery
- Electrocution from faulty tools or equipment
- Welding injuries, if proper protective equipment (such as goggles) is not worn
- Slip, trip and fall injuries including back injuries and broken bones
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Manual handling injuries
- Injuries caused by objects falling from height and striking you
- Eye injuries from flying debris
There’s a three-year time limit to make a personal injury claim. You can claim compensation even if you have sustained minor injuries in a workplace accident, provided somebody else is at fault.
Are you eligible to make a claim?
Without knowing how you have been injured and the circumstances of your accident at work, it’s impossible for us to say whether or not you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim – any lawyer in Newport will tell you the same thing. As a general rule of thumb you will have a legitimate case if:
- You were hurt in an accident
- The accident wasn’t your fault
- The incident happened within the last three years
Why not complete our 30-second test right now to find out if you have genuine grounds for seeking compensation?
