What is a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injuries can be any kind of physical or psychological injury (and illness) caused by the negligence of another party.

A personal injury claim is the process of attempting to recover compensation for that negligence.

Led by our team of specialist personal injury solicitors covering Carmarthen, these claims can lead to financial rewards that recompense for any physical or psychological injury, as well as medical expenses, loss of earnings and so on.

There are several types of personal injury claims, including clinical (or medical) negligence within healthcare, injuries in road traffic accidents and injuries at the workplace.

Personal Injuries in Carmarthenshire

Between 2013 and 2016, over 650 serious injuries were reported by the Health and Safety Executive in Carmarthen.

Carmarthenshire also saw a large number of road traffic accidents (RTAs) in 2017 with over 400 reported accidents, including 10 fatalities and 86 serious injuries.

Whether you have been injured in Carmarthen through an RTA, healthcare mistreatment, or as a result of your job, get in touch with us today.

Our qualified solicitors are experienced in the field and can offer their services on a No Win No Fee basis for all types of injuries listed above, and many more.

Carmarthenshire Personal Injury Solicitors

Our solicitors provide the best service for your particular situation in Carmarthen, from RTAs to slips, trips and falls.

Our No Win No Fee policy means that you will not need to worry about any solicitor fees until the claim is settled and that claim is successful in your favour. Only then will our solicitors require a small fee - usually 25% of the compensation amount.

All you need to do is collect adequate evidence from the incident (witnesses, photographs, medical records) and notify us as soon as possible. We can also help you gather this evidence if you don’t already have it. Most claims are only valid within three years of the injury occurring, so don’t leave it until the last minute.

Once you have provided us with the details, our team of personal injury lawyers will be able to decide whether your case is eligible for our No Win No Fee agreement. We will then take on your case, taking over all paperwork and communications with other parties in order to retrieve the best compensation for you.

We will aim to win a compensation payout not only for your injuries but also to cover expenses, such as travel expenses and any lost earnings as a result of the incident.

Just remember to keep any receipts of your expenses so that we have sufficient evidence to back your claim!

The Importance of Evidence to a Personal Injury Claim

It is impossible to overstate how important evidence is to your case. If you can provide us with pictures of the incident along with witness statements and details of parties involved, your chances of having a successful claim is increased massively.

Witnesses and photographs of the incident can help prove the fault of the injury – a car accident, for example – whereas official medical documentation can aid the process of determining the severity of your injury and therefore the amount you should claim for.

Sometimes, evidence is not so easy to gather yourself if you are injured badly or have no way of taking photographs and so on. This is not the end of the world as we can contact authorities for CCTV, or even use reliable experts who are able to recreate the incident using their training (a particularly useful practice for RTAs).

How Long do Personal Injury Claims Take?

Personal injury proceedings usually last one or two years on average, depending on the severity and complexity of the case.

Some claims with more serious injuries or more complex circumstances can take longer to be settled, as they may have to involve court. Having to go to court is rare as most cases are settled between the parties, but there are some instances where a court hearing is necessary.

Other claims including minor injuries can be settled comfortably within a year, so it typically depends on the type of injury and the manner in which it occurred.
