Do you need to make Monmouth car accident claims for personal injuries? Accident Advice Helpline, established in the year 2000, are the law firm you need if you would like to make a successful claim. Monmouth has its own law firms, but if you want personal injury specialists, talk to us first.
Injured in Monmouth?
It is easy to work out the origins of some place names, and Monmouth is definitely one of the easier ones. It is on the River Monnow, or if you prefer, on the mouth of the Monnow. The town is also known as Trefynwy in Welsh, the country in which it is located, and this translates into town on the Monnow. It is an attractive town, with an impressive mediaeval bridge known simply as Monnow Bridge. This is pedestrianised, so if you did have an accident in the area that could lead to Monmouth car accident claims, it would be unlikely to be in this particular area.
The tourist industry flourishes in Monmouth. Many people visit to see the bridge, not to mention exploring the town, including such venues as the Market Hall and the Monmouth Museum. The Forest of Dean is also close by, and the Wye Valley is another big draw for visitors.
Driving safely in unfamiliar areas
When you want to make Monmouth car accident claims, we’ll want to know all about your accident. When you are driving on holiday, you will be driving along roads you have never travelled along before. This makes it even more vital to have some idea of the local area. Checking maps and directions prior to setting off can help prevent you going wrong, but you might also be best advised to pull over safely if you get lost.
Of course, no matter how well you drive, you could end up being in an accident with someone else. Not everyone drives safely, unfortunately, which means you might be caught up in an accident even when you did something right. As such, you could end up potentially nursing injuries while enjoying your holiday – something you wouldn’t have expected.
Make sure you get proper legal advice
Monmouth car accident claims can potentially be made in situations where another driver was at fault for causing the accident in the first place. Even if they do not initially admit liability, you could argue your case and it may be found in your favour.
The best way to find out whether you are entitled to compensation for any injuries you suffered is to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 free from your landline, or call 0333 500 0933 from your mobile. You can do this after you return home if you like – there is a three-year period in which you must seek expert advice to begin a claim in order to be able to do so legally.
