Cwmbran personal injury solicitors

Cwmbran personal injury solicitors

By Mark Ainsdale. Last Updated 29th September 2021. Welcome to our Cwmbran personal injury solicitors. You will find a full guide to choosing the right personal injury solicitors to process your accident claim for you on this page. Within it, we cover everything from eligibility, through the most common reasons to make a claim, and finally an overview of the national claims service that Legal Expert offers to all residents of the UK, including Cwmbran.

If you would prefer to skip over reading this guide entirely, and move straight on to making your accident claim, call Legal Expert on 0800 073 8804. One of our team is ready and waiting to answer any questions you have and get your claim started right away.

How Legal Expert Can Help You Raise A Personal Injury Claim

The Legal Expert national claims service has proven to be very effective in winning significant compensation settlements across many accident cases. Our track record speaks for itself, we have helped many claimants procure the compensation that was rightly theirs, and we can do the same for you.

We always aim to get you the most compensation you deserve but will never do anything to put your claim at risk. Our team is just a phone call away at all times, ready to answer any questions you have or update you on your claim’s status. When it comes to making accident claims, residents of Wales gain all the benefits of dealing with an experienced and skilled personal injury solicitor that works on a national level when they engage Legal Expert to process their accident claim for them. To find out more, give our personal injury solicitors for Cwmbran a call on the number at the end of this guide.

Eligibility And Criteria Claimants Need To Meet

Before you choose a team of solicitors covering the Cwmbran area to process your claim, you need to know whether you have a valid reason to make one. Generally speaking, whenever you have come to harm due to the actions of a third party, you should be able to make a claim.

This also covers accidents that were partially your fault. If you contributed to the cause of the accident, but a third party shares some of the blame, then you should still be able to make a claim. Albeit at a reduced percentage of liability for the defendant. This would affect the total amount of compensation you receive.

You have three years from the date the accident or incident took place to make your claim. Call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this page so that we can get started on your claim today.

How To Pick The Right Solicitor, Lawyer, Or Legal Team For Your Claim

If you have a valid personal injury case, you will need the best personal injury lawyer you can find to have the greatest chance of winning your claim. How proficient your solicitor is could also directly affect the amount of compensation you are awarded.

Finding a good solicitor is going to take effort. You will need to shortlist legal firms who are suitable and then put in some legwork, contacting them to find out if they are a good fit. Solicitors in the UK are required to be registered with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA). This isn’t a measure of competence, just that the solicitor could fulfil the registration requirements.

You’re going to be looking for Cwmbran personal injury solicitors specialising in or having plenty of experience in processing accident claims. Some solicitors are generalists and are happy to take on all types of legal work. This would include accident claims. Others specialise in one facet of the law, for example, criminal cases. Still others, such as Legal Expert, specialise in helping claimants to win the compensation they are entitled to, as a personal injury lawyer. If you would like to learn more about our accident claims service, call us on the number down at the bottom of this page.

Should I Read Reviews Before I Choose My Solicitor?

In the previous section, we stated that finding the best legal team for your claim is going to take some effort. A smart way to reduce the required effort is to use personal injury solicitor reviews to create a shortlist of potential legal firms to handle your claim. Read the reviews, compare them, and shortlist any legal firm that seems to suit your claim. When you are reading the reviews, keep the following in mind:

  • You want to be reading and comparing recent reviews, any older than a year or so may not be relevant anymore.
  • The reviews you are reading need to be based on a similar claim to your own.
  • Specifically, look for reviews where the solicitor offered a Conditional Fee Agreement (CF) and note the percentage they charged as their overall fee.
  • Evaluate the experience the reviewer had with the legal firm. Was it good or bad? Did they list any pros and cons?
  • Be sure to double-check the facts if you think you have found a good firm of solicitors to process your claim. These are reviews written by members of the public, and they may not be 100% correct factually.

If you simply don’t have the time to go through this lengthy process, you can call Legal Expert on the number at the end of the page. One of our team can explain our national claims service to you, and how we can help. We can then get your claim started as soon as possible.

Will I Need To Use A Local In Cwmbran?

Many people wrongly believe that they must use a local personal injury solicitor in Cwmbran to handle their claim. And while there is nothing wrong with using a local firm, there is no legal requirement that you must do so. You are free to select any team of solicitors wherever they are located.

This fact forces a much more important consideration to the fore. A local firm might not be the best choice to process your claim for you. You need to find the best legal team you can, to maximise your chances of winning your claim. This means choosing specialised Cwmbran personal injury solicitors that are experts at processing claims.

For example, Legal Expert is an experienced accident claims solicitor, and we offer our claims service at a national level. We can offer local value-added services, such as arranging for you to receive a free medical examination in Cwmbran.

In some circumstances, we can also help you claim for a non-fault accident. We have a proven track record of successfully winning compensation for our clients in complex injury claim cases. However, some types of claims are much more common than others. In the sections below, we cover some of these common types of claims. Don’t worry if your accident doesn’t slot into one of these sections; we can still assist you.

Industrial Disease Claims

Claiming for a workplace illness or industrial disease is a common type of claim that we process here at Legal Expert. Your employer in Cwmbran is required to provide you with a healthy place to work. If they don’t, and you become ill, then you will have a valid reason to make a claim against them.

These claims can also be made against previous employers. For example, if you were manually working heavy machinery some years ago, and you have recently been diagnosed with vibration white finger, you could claim against your previous employer that exposed you to the cause of the medical condition. This is because the three-year deadline to make a claim begins from the date your condition was diagnosed for industrial disease and workplace illness claims.

You can call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this page to discuss your claim online, and then move on to have Cwmbran personal injury solicitors process it for you. You can also check out our full guide to workplace illness claims at this link:

Medical Malpractice Claims

Despite the best efforts of both the NHS and the UK Government, incidences of medical negligence are still common in both state-run and private healthcare establishments. Doctors are not infallible; they make genuine mistakes from time to time. When they do, and it can be proven that they have committed some form of clinical negligence, you will be able to make a claim. Medical negligence can happen in many ways, such as:

  • A late or misdiagnosis causing a patient’s condition to worsen.
  • A physical accident during a surgical procedure causing harm to a patient.
  • A patient is being given the wrong medication or the wrong dose.
  • Care workers allowing a patient to become the victim of an accident such as a slip, trip or fall.
  • Nursing staff failing to care for patients on a hospital ward properly. For example, allowing a patient to develop bedsores.

There really are very many forms that medical negligence can take. Whenever a medical professional with a duty of care towards a patient causes harm, negligence has potentially occurred. Legal Expert can help you to make a clinical negligence claim, call us on the number at the end of the page to understand how to claim. You can also read our guide to making clinical negligence claims here:

Cwmbran Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs

What is No Win No Fee?

This is a policy that allows accident victims to avoid financial risks when making compensation claims.

How does it work?

So, the claimant would only pay their personal injury solicitor’s fees if they win compensation.

And how does this happen?

The claimant would pay what is known as a success fee to the solicitor.

So, how much does the claimant have to pay their solicitor?

This depends on how much compensation is awarded, though the success fee has a legal cap.

And what is the legal cap?

This stands at 25% of whatever the compensation payment is.

What if the case is unsuccessful?

In that scenario, the claimant doesn’t have to pay their solicitor’s fees at all.

When does the claimant pay their solicitor?

This would happen at the very end of the claims process once they’re in receipt of their compensation.

And are there any surprise additional charges along the way?

No, there’s no requirement for the claimant to pay anything before or during the case to their solicitor.
