    Troedyrhiw accident


    A guide to claiming compensation for a Troedyrhiw accident

    If your Troedyrhiw accident wasn’t your fault then you are probably wondering if you can get compensation. After reading this short guide you should have an idea about whether or not you are eligible to claim compensation for your accident, and what claiming involves.

    Eligibility

    The two criteria for personal injury claims are that the accident needs to have been someone else’s fault, and the accident needs to have happened within the past three years. So if these two ‘rules’ apply to your non-fault accident then yes, you are probably entitled to compensation. (You can check this by calling one of our fully trained advisors. For instance you can claim for:

    • Work accident that was caused by your employer failing to comply with health and safety regulations, or not maintaining machinery and equipment.
    • An accident on the road caused by careless driving, an obstructed junction, poor road surface or faded road markings.
    • An accident in the comfort of your own home caused by a faulty appliance, or following substandard work carried out by a tradesperson.
    • Or even an accident on holiday, surely the worst time for misfortune to call!

    Wherever your Troedyrhiw accident happened you can claim compensation for any illness or injury that accident caused, however serious.

    What you should do next

    So you have checked your eligibility and have decided that you want to go ahead and claim compensation. For this you will need an injury lawyer and we can help you, but first there are a number of things that you can do to help your claim.

    1. Write an account of your Troedyrhiw accident. Include any details that you can remember; some small detail may turn out to be important.
    2. If you still have visible injuries, take pictures of them.
    3. Report your Troedyrhiw accident to any relevant authority. Depending on the circumstances of your accident this could be the police, your council or a business.
    4. If you haven’t yet received any medical attention, visit your GP and tell him about your injury or illness. Your visit will go on your medical record which a court may ask to see. Make sure you mention any psychological consequences of your ordeal, such as stress or trouble sleeping.
    5. Keep track of the costs your accident has incurred as you may be able to claim these back. Keep hold of receipts and statements as proof of what you are spending.
