What it costs to make a no-win, no-fee in Pontllyfni claim
The clue here is in the ‘no-win, no-fee in Pontllyfni’ name. Accident Advice Helpline does not charge any upfront fees when you make a personal injury claim, as all our lawyers provide a 100% no-win, no-fee service. In practice, this means that it’s affordable for anybody to make a claim, no matter their financial circumstances before or after their accident. We hear from a lot of outdoors enthusiasts who have been injured whilst taking part in organised activities, as well as holidaymakers who have been unlucky enough to be struck down with food poisoning on their trip and those who have been injured in accidents at their hotel or B&B. If something like this has happened to you then it’s easy to think that you would rather just not bother anybody, especially if your injuries are minor, but you could be surprised at the amount of compensation you are entitled to. You could use the 30-second calculator on our website right now to give you an idea of what you could get, if you like.
Claiming compensation for minor injuries on holiday
Even in the case of minor injuries, like a sprained ankle from tripping on damaged carpet at your hotel or a mild case of food poisoning, your holiday can still be ruined, leaving you out of pocket. You may need to go home early or take a few days or weeks off work to recover after your accident, which can affect your wages. We take all these things into account when we work out how much compensation you could receive, and we’ll also consider the impact your injuries have had on your life, in the case of more serious injuries. The best thing to do after your accident is to ensure that you report it – so if you have been injured at your hotel, you should let management know. If you’ve been struck down by food poisoning, it’s a good idea to let the restaurant owner or manager know.
