Aberkenfig is a village in the county borough of Bridgend, in South Wales. The “kenfig” part of the village’s name is a stream that flows through the village, so the name Aberkenfig actually means “mouth of the Kenfig.” In Welsh the name of the village is Abercynffig. It actually lies at the confluence of two rivers, the Llynfi and the Ogmore; this name comes from the Welsh word “eog” for salmon and “mor” which used to mean any stretch of water, although today it usually means sea. For a village it has its fair share of restaurants, including one Chinese restaurant that has featured in the Egon Ronay guide.
Do you need an Accident Lawyer in Aberkenfig?
There are a number of reasons why you may be searching for an accident lawyer in Aberkenfig, or elsewhere. First of all, you may have been injured in an accident which you can prove (or could, if only you had an accident lawyer in Aberkenfig, for example) you were not responsible for. You also have to be able to prove that another person was to blame for your accident.
Another reason for trying to find an accident lawyer in Aberkenfig is that you have been recently diagnosed with an illness which you can prove you contracted because of another person’s negligence. Examples of such illnesses are food poisoning, and a work-related disease. You and your accident lawyer need to prove that someone else’s negligence was responsible for your illness.
In 2014 the Food Standard Agency (FSA) published a report which detailed the number of instances of food poisoning in the UK. It found that around 280,000 people are affected by the Campylobacter pathogen every year, which is believed to cause around 100 deaths a year. The FSA believe that more people are affected by food poisoning than the figures show, as many people simply take remedies for upset stomachs instead of going to their GPs.
In November 2014, supermarkets tried to prevent the FSA publishing a list of outlets selling chicken contaminated with campylobacter. It seems that about 60 per cent of chickens on supermarket shelves contain the virus. Of course, as long as the meat is cooked at the correct temperature, for long enough, there should be no threat to health.
If you get food poisoning after eating out, you may be able to prove that it was caused by the negligence of catering staff, and so you might be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the restaurant.
