Pontyclun is sometimes written as Pont-y-clun, but it refers to a village in Wales. More specifically, it is in Rhondda Cynon Taf in the south-eastern part of the country. Pont means bridge in Welsh, which gives us a clue to how the name came about. It means ‘bridge over the River Clun, and the river runs through the village, which only has around 8,000 residents. Thus, car accident claims in Pontyclun tend to be rare.
With that said, we all know a car accident could happen between two cars on an otherwise-deserted country road, just as it could happen on a busy motorway. It only takes a lack of attention from one driver to create a situation whereby someone else is injured.
Finding proof to back up your claim
If you are thinking of claiming after suffering a car accident – whether it happened in Wales or elsewhere in the UK – it is important to know you need to have proof of negligence. This will support the fact someone else caused the accident – in this case, the other driver.
Even if you were a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident, you can still claim compensation by proving a third party was at fault. This proof might come by way of a police report on the accident, evidence from witnesses at the scene and other elements as well.
