In Welsh, Swansea is Abertawe, which means the mouth of the River Tawe. Now it is called the City and county of Swansea, although preciously it was in the county of Glamorganshire. The city of Swansea is the gateway to the Gower (Gwyr in Welsh) coast which is was the first area in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in 1956). It is well-known (at least in Wales) for its sandy beaches and surf. One of Gower’s most spectacular beaches is Rhossili, where you can sometimes find seahorses and sea anemones in the rock pools left when the tide goes out. You need to be careful how you park when you go to one of the more secluded beaches in the Swansea area, as often you have to resort to parking on the road, and so you might have one of the accidents on the road in Swansea that you hear about from time to time.
Accidents on the road in Swansea
After being involved in accidents on the road in Swansea you might be rather shaken, although not physically injured. If you are injured in one of the road traffic accidents in Swansea, you should have immediate medical treatment for your injuries. In order to file a personal injury compensation claim, your medical report will be needed. If the accident involved any motorised vehicle and there were casualties, the police should have been called to the scene. They have to investigate the cause of the accident and when they have concluded the investigation they will compile a report which you will also need if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Am I eligible to make a claim?
If you have your medical report and the police report, if it was necessary, then you may be entitled to make a claim if you can prove conclusively that you were not responsible for the accident in any way. You also have to be able to prove that another person was totally to blame for it. You will probably need the services of a road traffic accident solicitor who has experience of helping people who have had road traffic accidents file claims for their injuries.
