Vale of Glamorgan

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.
