If you have been injured in a Porthcawl accident then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Anyone who is injured as a result of the actions of another person can be entitled to seek financial compensation provided that:
- The accident was not their fault
- The accident occurred within the last three years
Not at fault for a Porthcawl accident?
If you have been involved in a Porthcawl accident then you may already have a good idea yourself whether the accident was your fault or not. If you have had a road traffic accident and felt that the other road user who was involved in the accident was to blame, you may feel that you should make a claim against them. If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may automatically feel that it is your employer who is responsible.
While this may often be the case, it is not automatically so. This is why it is important to speak to a professional accident solicitor to find out whether or not you are legally entitled to make a claim against the person you believe is responsible.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our accident solicitors are all fully qualified and have a wealth of experience when it comes to helping people make claims for personal injuries. They will be able to look at the facts associated with your accident and determine not only who is liable for your accident, but why. It is this vital second part which is so important when it comes to securing a financial claim against someone.
Your accident solicitor will be able to look at various legislations, guidelines and regulations associated with the incident, and use these as proof that someone else was liable. For example, if you have been injured at work as a result of a manual handling accident, your accident solicitor may be able to establish that the accident (and therefore the injury) could have been avoided if you had been provided with the relevant training and/or equipment. If your employer has failed to provide either of these, then your solicitor will be able to argue that they have failed in their legal duty of care. It is this level of argument that will ensure you are awarded the compensation, and the justice, that you deserve after your Porthcawl accident.
It is important that you do not leave it too long to make a claim for compensation against whoever you think is liable for your accident. Legally speaking, you only have three years in which to initiate a claim. If you leave it any longer than this to contact an accident solicitor they may not be able to help you and you may miss out on the compensation you should have been entitled to.
