Abertillery is a former mining town in the district administered by Blaenau Gwent district council. Its name means mouth of the River Tyleri. The town developed in the 19th century with its economy being based on coal mining. Although the town only grew in the mid-19th century, the local museum displays artefacts from the Bronze Age which were found in the area. The church of St Illtyd is believed to have had its origins in the 6th century, but the church you see in Abertillery now dates back to the 13th century, with some later additions. Close to this church, but on private land, are the ruins of two castles dating from the 14th century, and there are several mediaeval farmhouses around the town, although these are also in ruins now.
Do you need an accident solicitor in Abertillery?
There may or may not be an accident solicitor in Abertillery who could help you with your particular potential personal injury compensation claim. You need a solicitor who is an expert in the law which pertains to the type of accident you were injured in. You would need an experienced road traffic accident solicitor, for example if you were injured in such an accident, and not an accident solicitor who specialises in accidents in public places.
You need the services of an accident solicitor, because, in order to be eligible to make a claim for injuries, you must be able to prove that you were not responsible for your accident. Your accident solicitor in Abertillery can also help you prove that another person was to blame.
Accidents in public places
A public place is anywhere that the general public have access to; it may be the street, a shop or supermarket, a restaurant or bank and so on. If you are injured in an accident in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. You will need your medical report and the police report in order to make a claim for your injuries.
If you have an accident in a building which is open to the public, you should inform a member of staff and ensure that the details are logged in the accident book along with the names and contact information of any witnesses. You should then seek medical treatment for your injuries.
