Personal injury compensation is a non-taxable sum of money paid out to an accident victim, either at the order of a court of law or as agreed in an out-of-court settlement between the parties involved.
Compensation is awarded for any injury or illness suffered because of an accident for which the claimant wasn’t to blame, and for any monetary losses arising from that accident, such as lost income or the costs to replace clothing and personal items damaged in your Ruthin accident.
You can claim compensation:
- Because you’ve been injured in a Ruthin accident on the road, at work, or in a public place;
- After you’ve been injured or made unwell using a faulty appliance or service;
- For work-related stress;
- For an accident that happened on holiday; or
- After negligent or inadequate medical care.
If you are unsure whether or not you can claim compensation, one of our advisors will be able to clarify this for you. Alternatively, you could use the compensation calculator on our website. This calculator will also give you an estimate of how much you compensation you could be awarded.
How to claim
To claim compensation for your Ruthin accident, you will need to employ an injury lawyer. Here you have two options – as you can no longer apply for legal aid for a personal injury claim, you will either have to pay a solicitor to handle your claim, or find a solicitor who will work for you under a conditional fee agreement – no win no fee*.
The advantage of the no win no fee* agreement, aside from not having to find the money to pay your bill, is that you can be confident that your solicitor is working their hardest to make sure your claim is successful.
