The Vale of Glamorgan is arguably the most picturesque and affluent area of South Wales. Many people from the South Wales Valleys (and further afield) flock to the coastline to visit the beaches of Barry, Penarth and many more. The last thing they expect is to end up being involved in car collisions in Vale of Glamorgan!
What causes car collisions in Vale of Glamorgan
In common with many other areas of the UK, there are accident hotspots where the number of accidents are higher than you would expect. It is not always clear why this happens.
If an accident is going to end up as a claim then one person needs to get injured in a road traffic accident that is caused by another person. The person who caused the accident may be injured as well but they cannot start a claim because they were to blame.
What do you mean by injury?
In theory, an injury can mean any damage to your physical or psychological health. The important legal point here is that you have to prove not only that you have an injury but that the injury was caused by the accident. The most straightforward and reliable method of doing this is to get some medical attention straight after the accident or as soon as you realise that you are injured.
Believe it or not, it is quite common to not realise that you are injured until the day after the accident. Some minor fractures and sprains can take a few hours to become obvious and whiplash may not cause any problems until the following day. It is important to see a doctor immediately for the benefit of your health and for the purposes of getting evidence.
