Monmouthshire personal injury claims 

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 breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.

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 solicitors 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 the solicitors we work with undertake in Monmouthshire which is expressed in the statistics outlined below.

Road Traffic Accidents

Gwent police force has assisted in over 900 Road Traffic Accidents in Monmouthshire over recent years and according to the local authority, Monmouthshire had the third highest accident rate for Gwent police force locality and the highest fatality rate for the entire region.

Clinical and medical negligence

Clinical Negligence, being the more commonly used term, is damage caused to a person resulting from a breach of a duty of care.

Monmouthshire local hospitals such as Llanarth court hospital, Chepstow community hospital, and Nevill Hall hospital could have breached patient's duty of care over the last three years along with health care professionals outside of main hospitals in the region. If you think you have been a victim of Clinical Negligence in Monmouthshire then our team are well equipped to deal with your claim.

Slips, trips, and falls

Slipping or tripping accounts for 19% of non-fatal injuries sustained at work when reported by the Labour Force Survey. With slips, trips and falls being categorized into non-fatal accidents in the workplace, a total of 357 reported injuries of this nature were accounted for in the Monmouthshire area over the last five years.

Slips, trips and falls in public areas result in public liability claims. Negligence injuries such as fractures and strains can occur as a result of walkways that have not been maintained and are eligible for compensation.

As common as they are, the amount of slip, trips, and falls are actually decreasing in number due to greater health and safety regulations, however, a significant number of personal injury cases are still generated from this category of injury.
