Porthcawl is a town and community found within the county borough of Bridgend, on the southern coast of Wales. The town is situated approximately 25 miles (40 km) west of the capital city, Cardiff and 19 miles (31 km) southeast of Swansea, and is found on a low limestone headland on the South Wales coast, overlooking the Bristol Channel.
It was during the 19th century that Porthcawl began to develop in earnest as a settlement surrounding a coal port, but the port was unfortunately quickly made near redundant by the faster growing and therefore more popular ports of Barry and Port Talbot. Porthcawl therefore needed to develop in a slightly different way in order to fuel its economy and stay afloat.
Porthcawl as a Holiday Resort
It was in the direction of tourism that Porthcawl turned for economic impetus when its coal port began to decline and it has enjoyed a good deal of success thanks to that decision. Today, the town is a popular seaside resort with an extensive promenade and several beaches, two of which are Blue Flag beaches, as well as a number of facilities for tourists which include a large static caravan park.
The success of tourism in the region has therefore brought a good deal of investment to the area as well as introducing a large influx of visitors on a seasonal basis, who supplement the c. 16,000 permanent residents of Porthcawl. This makes the resort a busy and active one but that does have the considerable drawback of meaning that accidents and injuries can be more common in the town. It is this negative aspect, therefore, which means that we should now talk about personal injury compensation claims in Porthcawl.
Personal Injury Claims in Porthcawl
Firstly, it is important to understand that personal injury compensation claims in Porthcawl or otherwise arise when an individual suffers an injury which was definitively the fault of another party. That party could be another individual, an organisation or a company, but whoever it was, claims in Porthcawl are aimed at providing recompense for physical, emotional or financial pain which you have suffered through no fault of your own. It should be clear to see, as a result, just how important these claims can be and therefore how important it is to trust the handling of your claim to the right people.
