We’re here to help with your accident claims
Accidents can happen any time. In some severe cases, they can be enough to leave you with life-changing injuries, such as brain damage, paralysis, or multiple broken bones. It is at times like these that you will require the assistance of the legal team here at the Accident Advice Helpline.
We will be able to help you to file a Swansea fracture injury claim against the party responsible, so that you can receive the financial support you need to concentrate on your recovery.
How do I make a Swansea fracture injury claim?
To make a successful Swansea fracture injury claim, it will be necessary for you to work with one of our experienced lawyers to establish the following:
- The person who caused your accident owed you a duty of care yet failed in that duty to you
- That the breach of the duty of care caused your injury and/or financial losses
- That your injury and/or financial losses were the foreseeable consequence of such a breach of duty
If you are able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that your injury occurred through no fault of your own, you will be able to access the compensation you deserve.
How will you assess my compensation settlement?
The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the injury you have sustained and the impact it has had on your life. When considering the amount of damages you should receive, your lawyer will look into your circumstances and investigate the awards granted to people with injuries similar to your own.
Your final settlement may comprise one or more of the following types of compensation:
- General damages – for the pain and inconvenience resulting from your injury
- Special damages – for the financial losses resulting from your injury
- Future losses – for the financial losses you may suffer in the future
The settlement of your Swansea fracture injury claim will usually be full and final, which means that it will not be possible for you to reopen your claim and request a higher sum of compensation, even if your injury does not improve in the way that you might expect. You must therefore grant our legal team the chance to decide on a reasonable settlement and gather the evidence required to justify that figure to the guilty party.
