Making an Injury Claim

It is necessary for a successful claim that they are made within three years of the injury occurring in most circumstances.

In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant was then negligent of that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach. What this means is that the solicitor must show that the at-fault party (Defendant) was negligent to yourself (Claimant). 

Making your claim as soon as possible will enable your solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.

Finding the best solicitor for your compensation claim

Our personal injury solicitor s aim to secure the maximum compensation by acting on your behalf to assess the value of your claim, negotiate the relevant paperwork and settle a final amount.

Experienced solicitors will decide whether a No Win No Fee agreement is suitable for your claim by collating supporting evidence that will often include the following;

  • Witnesses to the event

  • Identifying the party at fault

  • Local medical examination

Using this information they will decide whether your claim has a reasonable prospect of success.

There is a range of personal injury compensation claims that solicitors undertake in Cardiff which is expressed in the statistics outlined below.

Serious injury

A report by the Health and Safety Executive board found that in Cardiff alone, more than 1500 non – fatal injuries to employees were reported between 2013 and 2016, alongside 4 fatalities. The same report produced statistics that highlight Wales as one of the regions with the highest rate of fatal injuries over the last six years.

The solicitors we work with work with the Courts, medical providers and insurance companies to get the compensation deserved from life-altering injuries that can incur substantial follow up care costs.

Road Traffic Accidents

Recent research from RoSPA shows that Road Traffic Accidents (RTA) make up 50% of personal injury claims in the UK.

During the last six years, over 4000 Road Traffic Accidents were reported in Cardiff. Although efforts have been made to steadily reduce that number, year by year, there are still a significant number of claims being made with close to five hundred RTA reports made in 2016 alone.

Car or motorcycle accidents can be amongst the most damaging but our specialist solicitors are experienced in negotiating the maximum compensation amount pertaining to your claim.

Clinical and medical negligence

Medical negligence, now re-defined as Clinical negligence relates to a breach of the duty of care by your healthcare provider and is grounds for compensation. The solicitors we can use for your case are experienced in this type of injury claim and can offer free advice on further advancing your claims process.

Accidents in the workplace

Wales has a non-fatal injury rate which is statistically significantly higher than the overall rate for Great Britain. Over 2000 reported workplace related accidents occurred in the South West for people in their current or most recent job according to recent government data.

For work-related illnesses, in the South West, there was an estimated prevalence  69,000 self-reported illnesses that were caused or made worse by the persons working environment most of which were attributed to stress, depression, and anxiety, or musculoskeletal disorders.

Slips, trips, and falls

Slip, trip and fall accidents are the most common cause of injury not just in Wales but across the UK according to government data. Most often these injuries relate to manual handling and lifting procedures which should be carefully detailed in workplace procedures.
