Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire, like all other areas of Wales, sees a large number of personal injury cases each year. Such cases range from Road Traffic Accidents (RTA's), serious and non-fatal injuries such as slips and trips, accidents in the workplace to clinical negligence – and these are not all of the types of injuries happening in Pembrokeshire, there are much more that relate to a breach of a duty of care.

A breach of your duty of care means that the ‘at fault' party has been negligent with your safety and well-being. If your solicitor can demonstrate that there was a breach of the duty of care that was owed to you and it caused illness or injury then in most cases you will have a successful personal injury claim.

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrence Regulations (RIDDOR) for Pembrokeshire revealed a hundred incidents of serious injuries for 2015/2016 and a total of 311 cases of reported serious injury by since 2013.
