Barry is a town in the Vale of Glamorgan, and Barry Island is a popular seaside resort in South Wales. People have been in the Barry area since the Stone Age, and there are Bronze Age barrows on Barry Island and Cold Knap Point. It would seem that the Romans were also in the area, as villas were discovered and excavated at Llandough and Glan-y-môr. It’s believed that the town’s name comes from St Baruc, whose remains are interred in a chapel on Barry Island (it is no longer an island, but a peninsula) after he drowned in the Bristol Channel.

Am I eligible to make a claim?
If you and your accident solicitor can prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, and also that another person was to blame for it, you could be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim.
You would need a copy of your medical report which details the severity and extent of your injuries, and you should have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident. If the police were informed of the accident, they would have written an accident report, and this is also required.
How long do I have to claim?
Usually, you have three years from the date of your accident that occurred in the UK to make your claim. However, there are some exceptions to this general rule, so perhaps you don’t have that long to file your particular claim. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have left to make your claim.
