Before you begin your claim, you may want to gather some general information about personal injury claims. Here, we outline what exactly a personal injury claim entails, how you can start your claim in Swansea, and the types of injuries that we deal with here at Accident Line Direct.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal procedure where the claimant (an injured person) believes that another person or organisation is at-fault for their injury, and therefore attempts to seek compensation for the other party’s negligence.

For example, employees can claim against employers for a disregard for safety at the workplace leading to an injury, and pedestrians can claim against drivers for their dangerous driving causing an injury.

How to Start a Personal Injury Claim in Swansea

You can begin a claim any time after the injury has occurred, simply get in touch with us today.

You can get in touch by giving us a call, or completing our short contact form and we will get in touch at a time that best suits you. Once you contact us, we’ll assess the situation, agree terms with you and begin negotiating with the third-party insurer to recover your compensation.

In order to help your case succeed, you can also do a few things. Evidence is crucial in building a successful claim, so it would be a great help to your case if you can take photographs of the scene immediately after the incident.

These images could provide evidence to who was at fault; for example, a loose tile causing your to fall at work.

You should also ensure that you are assessed by a medical professional – ideally as soon as possible once you are aware of the injury or illness – to confirm your injuries are genuine.

If you have not done so, we can arrange medical assessments at Morriston Hospital or a GP in the Swansea area.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Our expert personal injury solicitors in Swansea are available to guide you through the process of a variety of claims, representing you in order to provide you with the best compensation for your situation.

Medical Negligence Solicitors in Swansea

Whether you believe you have been subject to medical negligence in Swansea, either at Morriston Hospital, Singleton Hospital, or any GP in the surrounding areas, our solicitors can help you claim.

We can help you claim against the NHS in Wales as well as private practices, so be sure to get in touch for a chat about your injury or illness that you feel may have been caused or made worse by a healthcare provider.

You can claim for mistreatment or a disregard for your wellbeing leading to illnesses such as sepsis, as well as misdiagnosis of an illness causing you to be mentally or physically distressed. If you feel the healthcare provider could’ve done more to prevent your condition worsening, you could be entitled to a claim.

Industrial Disease Claims in Swansea

With many residents in Swansea and its surrounding areas working in industrial occupations, it’s not uncommon for workers to be exposed to harmful materials such as asbestos.

Exposure to asbestos can lead to asbestosis, a life-lasting lung condition, and many other dangerous illnesses, such as mesothelioma.

If you think you have been exposed to asbestos or any other material leading to an industrial-related disease, get in touch with our personal injury solicitors in Swansea today and we could help you win compensation.

Personal Injury in Car Accidents

The personal injury statistics from car accidents in Swansea denote the city as one of the most prominent areas in Wales for serious injuries.
