Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims must usually be made within three years.

Whether a claim is being made for a slip, trip or work accident in Caerphilly, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Guidance for those seeking an injury lawyer

Do you have to choose a personal injury solicitor in Caerphilly?
Many injury lawyers operate nationwide, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
For the majority of claims, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
