St Davids is a notable place, namely because it is the smallest city in Britain. Despite its city status, it has a population that reached just 1,841 people in 2011, which is when the last census took place. Thus, if you were in St Davids, in Pembrokeshire in Wales, and you experienced a personal injury (an unlikely event, but it could potentially happen, just as it could happen anywhere in Britain), you may struggle to find a solicitor in St Davids who deals with personal injury claims – even though you are in a city.
This poses the question of what you should do if you are ever caught up in an accident that leaves you with some injuries. Should you find a local solicitor, or at least someone as local as possible to where the accident happened? Actually, this is not necessary – most personal injury claims can easily be handled via email and on the phone, so there is no need to meet with someone to sort out a claim.
How do you know if you could claim at all?
Not all personal injuries will warrant a compensation claim to be made. For this to be a possibility, the injured person must prove the third party involved was negligent. This negligence would then have caused their injuries to occur. Some accidents occur when two parties encounter each other directly, such as in a car accident. If one driver failed to stop at a red light and crashed into another driver who had right of way, the first driver would be negligent in doing so. This means the second, innocent driver could make a claim for any injuries they ended up with.
But sometimes, you might have an accident when no one else was around. Imagine slipping over on ice in a supermarket car park, for example. Another example would be if you tripped over a faulty paving stone, or even fell from a balcony that had faulty railings around it. Even though you may be alone when something like this happens, it doesn’t mean a third party wasn’t negligent in allowing the situation to occur.
