A personal injury lawyer in Rhayader will be able to help you with your compensation claim
It doesn’t really matter where you are from in the UK — at some point, you could be injured in an accident that was in no way your fault. Almost 60,000 different accidents happen in our country every single week, the most common of which are slips, trips and falls.
A lot of the time, the people who have been injured in this way just dust themselves off and walk away, feeling embarrassed and hoping no one noticed. While they might have a few grazes or bruises, the only thing that might’ve been really damaged is their pride.
But what if your fall was from high up, maybe in your job in a warehouse; on an unsigned floor that had just been washed; or over a trailing wire in the office which caused you to bang your head on the corner of a desk? These might be just “what ifs,” but they and many more scenarios happen every single day, and victims at no fault of their own receive some serious injuries.
If you were a victim of an incident that was in no way your own fault, the incident happened in the last three years and you received medical attention for your injuries, then a personal injury lawyer in Rhayader would be interested in talking to you about how you could receive compensation for your suffering.
The amount you may receive
The amount of compensation that you could receive if successful depends on a lot of different things, and there are always a lot of things that has to be taken into account. This is what makes every claim completely unique. Here is a list of a few contributing factors:
- The severity of your injury and the prospects of recovery;
- The traumas the accident caused;
- Loss of earnings;
- Extra medical costs;
- Travel costs to and from medical appointments;
- Cost of care if you are no longer able to look after yourself;
- Childcare if you need help with your children; and
- Any other cost or loss which was a direct result of the accident.
All of the extra costs and losses with which you have had to deal can be claimed back as part of your case, as long as you can show proof such as receipts or wage slips.
Settlement of your claim
Most of the time when it comes to personal injury claims, it is the insurance firms that deal with the settlement, not the person at fault. Most polices these days have third party cover; you can insure pretty much anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the premiums. The main types of insurance that are involved in personal injury claims are:
- Motor Insurance;
- Employers’ liability insurance;
- Public liability insurance;
- Product liability insurance; and
- Professional indemnity insurance.
