    These days no matter what service it is that you require, you’re likely to carry out some online research before choosing a provider. This is how many people looking for a solicitor in Cwmbran come to find Accident Advice Helpline.

    If you are currently searching the internet for a solicitor in Cwmbran it is possible this is connected to a personal injury or accident you have encountered.

    We are regularly contacted by people looking for an accident solicitor in Cwmbran and solicitors located in other towns and cities across the UK, who have questions about the claiming process. Here are some of the more common questions they ask.

    Frequently asked questions from potential claimants

    Q. I was injured in a road traffic accident, who can I claim from?

    A. If another driver caused the accident then you can claim compensation from them. If they are insured then your solicitor will attempt to recover compensation through their insurance company. However, the accident must have been reported to both the police and your insurance company otherwise the responsible party’s insurance company may refuse to pay.

    If the other driver is not insured then you may be able to claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.

    Q. I don’t have the funds to pay for a claim upfront, can I seek legal aid?

    A. Unfortunately legal aid is no longer available for personal injury cases in England and Wales. However, financial help is available via the no win no fee agreement whereby you don’t pay solicitors’ fees if your claim is unsuccessful. Usually this procedure doesn’t require any upfront payments to start a claim.

    This is one of the cornerstones of Accident Advice Helpline’s service but not all firms offer it. In fact it is unlikely that smaller firms or a local solicitor in Cwmbran would have the financial means to take on claims under the no win no fee agreement.

    Q. My accident happened some time a go, can I still claim?

    A. In most circumstances as long as the accident happened within the last three years you can claim.

    There are exceptions to this general rule and each situation is unique. Plus there are additional criteria your case must meet so to be a hundred percent sure we advise you speak to a legal professional.

    Q. Do I have to use a solicitor in my local area, or the area where my accident took place to claim compensation?

    A. No not at all. If this is your preferred option then great, however, if you’d like to use a solicitor whose office is nearer to your place of work or you’d like to use a national firm instead then you can.
