Abercanaid is the name of a small village situated in Merthyr Tydfil in Wales. You may have guessed it was in Wales because of the ‘aber’ part of the name, which appears in other Welsh place names as well. This village has a population of just over 5,000 people, so there are few incidents where people have any reason to think of making an Abercanaid no-win, no-fee* accident claim.
With that said, you never can tell when an accident will happen. We might have near-misses in our lives, but few of us will ever have cause to make a claim following an accident we did not cause. If the accident was down to someone else’s negligence and not simply bad luck, we could make a claim based on that.
Suffering from slips and trips
A slip or a trip is easy to do, but even though it sounds like a minor accident it can potentially lead to some unpleasant injuries. All that’s needed is to slip or trip over awkwardly and you could end up breaking one or more fingers, spraining a wrist or otherwise injuring yourself in a way that is very unpleasant and painful.
A broken finger doesn’t sound too major, but when you think of how much you use your hands, you’ll see this can be very inconvenient. Now, imagine you tripped and fell because an obstacle was on the ground – one that should not have been there. It may have been someone else’s responsibility to ensure there were no obstacles in the way. Hence, any injuries caused to you by that person’s negligence would mean you could make a compensation claim.
