How we can help you with personal injury claims in Caerphilly

Starting a personal injury claim in Caerphilly

If you have been injured in an incident and you believe that you may be entitled to personal injury compensation, you are advised to speak to a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible while the details are still fresh in everyone’s memories. If you call us, we will meet with you and go through exactly what has happened.

We will then start to gather evidence and advise the party at fault or their insurer that you intend to make a claim. We will also arrange for you to be examined by a medical expert who will prepare a report detailing your injuries.

No win no fee personal injury claims Caerphilly

We strongly believe that quality legal representation should be available to everyone who is entitled to personal injury compensation. For that reason, we offer no win no fee personal injury claims.

If you would like to be represented on this basis, contact us today and we will be happy to explain how the process works and how our fees are dealt with. We provide a transparent breakdown of our costs and always ensure that these are reasonable, that we provide excellent value and that you receive the best possible compensation.

Securing your future with personal injury compensation

If you receive a sizeable sum in compensation for a personal injury, you will need to consider how to manage this so that it will adequately provide for you in the future. We will advise you of the options open to you, including setting up a trust and ringfencing the money you receive. This can be particularly beneficial if you are entitled to receive means-tested benefits that might stop if you were to receive a lump sum of money.

Common questions about personal injury claims

How do I prove a personal injury compensation claim?

To bring a successful personal injury claim, we need to show that:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the person or organisation that caused you harm;
  • This duty of care to you was breached; and
  • You were injured as a result. This includes both physical harm and emotional or psychological harm.

We have a pre action protocol for personal injury claims and can let you know whether the other party was at fault in respect of your injuries and we will put together evidence of this as well as of your injuries. This will involve a range of work, such as speaking to witnesses, taking photographs of the place where you were hurt, obtaining CCTV footage and obtaining your medical and hospital records.

Do I have to go to court for personal injury compensation claims?

We are regularly able to obtain personal injury compensation out of court for our clients. If the other side admits liability, we will negotiate with them to try and reach an agreement over the sum to be paid to you. Your case would only need to go to court if liability is denied or if the amount offered by way of damages is not high enough to fully compensate you for what has happened.

How long do I have to make a personal injury claim?

You will usually have a limitation period of three years from the date of the incident in which to start a personal injury claim. If you were not aware that you had been hurt at the time, for example, if you received an incorrect medical diagnosis, then the three-year period starts from when you could reasonably have been expected to have known about it.

You can also bring a personal injury compensation claim on behalf of a child. In that case, the three-year period starts from the date of their 18th birthday.

In respect of an individual who does not have the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, there is no time limit.

How much compensation is paid for personal injury claims?

If you have a valid personal injury claim, you are entitled to receive two types of damages:

  • General damages; and
  • Special damages

If you are successful, you can also expect the other side to pay your reasonable legal costs.

General damages are paid to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as well as for any inability to engage in activities you were previously able to enjoy.

Special damages are paid to reimburse you for any financial losses you have suffered or that you will suffer in the future. This could include loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, the cost of travel to medical appointments, prescription charges, care that is not provided on the NHS and the cost of any special equipment you need or modifications to your home.

The amount you receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether they will continue to affect you in the future. If you ring to speak to one of our personal injury lawyers, we can discuss the subject of compensation with you and give you some guidance in respect of both the amount and the potential length of your claim.
