Have you been injured in a road traffic accident? Are you one of the many casualties of a car collision on our roads every year? The statistics of road accidents in Wales and the UK are shocking. And so many accidents are cause by a driver’s negligence, carelessness or dangerous behaviour. Across the country, initiatives to crack down on mobile phone use while driving, speeding and drink driving have been high profile. But the number of road accidents is still unacceptably high.
If you have been injured in a road accident that was not your fault, we can offer you specialist personal injury advice in Powys to help you make your claim. We can’t take your injuries away, but we can help you to get the compensation that you deserve.
Road traffic accidents and personal injury advice in Powys
The most common injuries we see in road traffic accident claims are head and neck injuries such as whiplash, crushes and breaks to legs and ankles and spinal injuries. Any one of these injuries can take months to heal and have a serious impact on your quality of life. We appreciate that there is also a degree of psychological trauma for many victims and driving after a serious accident can be a difficult hurdle to get over. But a successful claim for compensation can bring a sense of justice and closure that many accident victims find therapeutic.
Am I eligible to make a claim?
The first question we are usually asked when we are contacted for personal injury advice in Powys is around a victim’s eligibility to claim compensation. This is a straightforward question to answer and can be looked at in three simple steps:
- Was someone else to blame for your accident, either because of something they did or because they failed to act as they should have?
- Did you need to go to hospital or see a doctor as a result of your injuries?
- Did your accident take place in the last three years?
If each of these criteria apply to you, then you are likely to be eligible to claim. You can receive an instant estimate of the potential value of your claim by taking our online 30 second compensation test.
