Beddau is a village in Rhondda Cynon Taff, in South Wales. In the mid-19th century there were only a few scattered farms in the area, but with the sinking of the coal mines more people moved into the area to work in the pits and so houses were needed to accommodate them. The name “Beddau” means “graves” in English, but it is uncertain how the village came to get this name. It has been suggested by some that it arose because there was a tree at a crossroads, Coesheol Y Beddau (Crossroads of the Graves) where criminals were hung and then buried underneath it.
Do you need an Accident Lawyer in Beddau?
Mining was (and still is) a dangerous occupation and many a miner was injured, sometimes fatally, while working underground. There were also health hazards such as emphysema, but way back in the 19th century there were no accident lawyers in Beddau (indeed there was almost no Beddau) and no personal injury compensation claims to be made. Nowadays things have changed and if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or occupational disease, you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer if your illness can be proven to have been caused by his or her negligence towards you.
You could also need the services of an accident lawyer in Beddau if you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, but that of another person.
However, given that there is unlikely to be an accident lawyer in Beddau, as it is a village, you may have some problems tracking down a suitable accident lawyer to represent you. If you are experiencing such problems, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will put you in touch with an appropriate legal expert who works for clients on a no-win, no-fee basis.
Can I make a claim?
If you were injured in an accident that can be proven not to have been your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You should be able to demonstrate that you sought medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident. Your medical report is required in order to assess the extent and severity of your injuries so that an amount of compensation can be calculated for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries.
If the police were called to the scene of the accident, you will also need their accident report if you decide to make a claim.
