    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Vale of Glamorgan


    The Vale of Glamorgan in Wales has a number of tourist attractions, including:

    • Barry Island Pleasure Park;
    • Vale of Glamorgan Railway;
    • St. Donat’s Castle;
    • Cosmeston Lakes Country Park; and
    • Cosmeston Medieval Village.

    Because the Vale of Glamorgan sees a lot of tourists each year, compensation claims for slips, trips and falls are common. For a lawyer in Vale of Glamorgan, therefore, there will also be many claims following road traffic accidents, which are also common because people are not familiar with the local road layouts.

    When claims do arise from Vale of Glamorgan, potential claimants are likely to ask some of the following questions.

    How Do I Know Whether I Can Claim?

    To be eligible for compensation, you must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault. You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test on the Accident Advice Helpline website.

    How Long Do You Have to Claim?

    For most types of claim, you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings. If you want to claim compensation, you should not delay getting in touch with a lawyer in Vale of Glamorgan, as it will take time to prepare your compensation claim and this needs to be done before the deadline.

    For disease claims, the three years run from the date on which the disease was diagnosed, rather than the date on which the victim contracted the disease, and for minors the three years run from the injured person’s 18th birthday.

    How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

    The amount of compensation that you can claim depends on a number of factors, including the nature and severity of your injury, and whether you will be permanently affected by it. You can also claim for any wages that you may have lost as a result of your injury, plus any out-of-pocket expenses that you have incurred.
