Aberkenfig, or Abercynffig is a village in south Wales, close to Bridgend. Its name means mouth of the Nant cynffig ( a small stream). It is at Aberkenfig that the stream flows into the River Ogmore (Eog mor in Welsh, meaning ‘Salmon water’). It is a relatively recent settlement in comparison to its neighbouring villages such as Tondu, Ynysawdre and Llansantffraid. Prior to the Industrial Revolution and the coming of the coal mines near Aberkenfig, the River Ogmore was noted for its salmon fishing. The mines have now closed, but Aberkenfig grew initially because of them. Now villagers are likely to commute to Bridgend, Cardiff or Swansea to work. They of course are aware that on some autumn and winter mornings there may be fog, as the village is quite low-lying.

Can I make an injury claim?
In order to be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim you have to be able to prove (with the help of an Accident Solicitor in Aberkenfig or one from elsewhere) that you were not to blame for the accident in which you sustained your injury. Your Accident Solicitor in Aberkenfig will also be able to help you build a case to prove that another person was responsible for your accident.
You should have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident and the medical report will be required if you are to make a claim. If you were injured in a road traffic accident involving a motorised vehicle, the police should have attended the scene of the accident. They will have investigated the causes of the accident and then written an accident report and you will also need this to make a claim for injuries.
How much compensation could I receive?
There is no way of calculating how much compensation you might receive, although you could get a rough estimate if you take our 30-second test on our main pages. You may be pleasantly surprised at the estimated figure, and perhaps this will encourage you to call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
