Connah’s Quay is a town in Flintshire in Wales. This area is in the top right-hand corner of the country, and indeed it is very close to the border between Wales and England. The town is also close to the River Dee, and has a population of around 16,700 people. It would be rare for anyone to experience a Connah’s Quay accident, but if something like this happened to you, it would be reasonable to want to know more about what you could do. Would there be a chance of making a claim, perhaps?
This is far from the first thing on people’s minds at a time when an accident has occurred. Shock is very likely the first thing you feel at a time like this, but of course, you might also feel pain from the injuries you have incurred. If you do have any injuries, make sure you get some medical advice. You can get this from a casualty unit if your injuries require immediate attention, or perhaps a minor injuries unit if they are less serious, but you still need to be checked over. Otherwise, see your GP as soon as you can after the accident.
What kinds of accidents can potentially happen?
Accidents come in all shapes and sizes, and they can occur at any moment in the day, too. While we can often avoid an accident by taking evasive action, this is not always true. It may not be possible to do this, namely because there is no time available.
Car accidents can occur with little to no notice, for example. Sometimes, pedestrians are hit as they cross the road, even if they choose an appropriate and safe place to cross. Accidents can occur at work as well, although, as with all other mishaps, they tend to be very rare indeed. The big question in every case is whether someone else was responsible for the accident happening. If they were, a compensation claim may well be started.
Have you had a Connah’s Quay accident recently – within the last three years?
If you are wondering about the potential to make a claim to get some compensation for your injuries, you must make that claim within three years of the date of the accident. Most people will do this, but if your accident happened some time ago, you may only now be wondering whether you should have got advice at the time. If you are within the three-year period, however, you do still have time to find out more.
