Injured in a serious road accident injury in Milford Haven on public transport?
If you have been injured in a serious road accident injury in Milford Haven, on public transport, you could claim compensation for your injuries.
In most cases, clients will have already received medical advice and treatment for an injury or injuries, but if not, we can help you arrange a medical assessment.
The important thing to remember about injuries is this: they need to have symptoms that are diagnosed and confirmed by a medical professional. The law states that anyone hurt could claim compensation but that these injuries must have had a bearing on the person, their life and so on. Therefore, if you had a broken leg as a result of the accident, you may have needed an operation to pin it and a cast on it for several weeks.
There may be an emotional impact to bear in mind too. Suffering a traumatic event such as an accident can have an effect on us that leaves us anxious, depressed, nervous, unable to sleep and so on. These too can be part of your compensation claim.
Who was at fault?
The law is also clear on this point. In order to have a claim, someone else needs to be liable for the accident. In other words, their actions or inactions may have created a situation that led to the accident happening.
Not maintaining the vehicle that is being used for public transport, resulting in brake failure and the accident in which you were hurt, is a responsibility that lies with the bus and maintenance company.
When did it happen?
You have three years within which you must make a claim for compensation. After this time, it can be difficult to make a claim and so, if you are thinking of making one, you need to bear in mind the clock is ticking.
The deadline starts counting down from the moment it can be reasonably assumed that your injuries were caused by the public transport accident. This day is probably one you will not forget in a hurry, so it should be easy to recall and relay to your solicitor.
