The history of Bangor in Wales
The origins of human habitation in the area now known as Bangor date back as far as the 6th century AD, when a monastery was established on the site of what is now Bangor Cathedral. The current cathedral is a much more recent construction but the name ‘Bangor’ is thought to be derived from the Old English for ‘a wattled enclosure’, referring to the original surroundings of the monastery.
It is obviously due to the presence of this cathedral that Bangor holds city status and is in fact only one of six settlements of that status in all of Wales. This is slightly strange when you consider that it is actually only the 36th largest settlement in Wales and is in fact one of the smallest cities in Britain.
The population of Bangor
According to the 2011 census, the city of Bangor has a population of only around 18,000 permanent residents, making it considerably smaller than most cities. This means that Bangor is likely to be a lot quieter than other cities and also that it is likely to see fewer accidents and injuries than those larger cities.
That may well make you think that a Bangor accident claim therefore, is unlikely to be a part of your future but that does not mean that you should fore-arm yourself with the key details regarding personal injury claims.
Bangor accident claim details
When considering a Bangor accident claim, the first pertinent detail for anybody to learn is when and why such a claim may be possible. This is if and when an individual suffers and injury which was demonstrably the fault of someone other than themselves.
It is in these circumstances that Bangor accident claim proceedings can be instigated by the victim, in order that they can receive recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain which they have had to endure.
