Gorseinon is a well-populated area. This means that road traffic accidents in Gorseinon are fairly common. Gorseinon is a town near Swansea in south Wales, which developed in the 19th century because of the coal-mining industry. Of course, this is now defunct. After the Norman Conquest of 1066 lands in Wales were given to the Normans, who became the Marcher lords. When the opportunity came to seize lands back in 1135 and 1136 the Welsh took their chances and fought the English on land near Gorseinon and surprisingly won, as the Marcher lords had vastly underestimated the size of the Welsh force. The battle is known as the Battle of the Gower (Swansea is on the Gower coast) and was an inspiration for similar uprisings against the Norman lords.

How long do I have to file a claim?
For accidents that occur in the British Isles, you usually have three years to file a claim, although the sooner you begin the claim’s process the better as sometimes, if a claim is disputed, the case will have to go through the court system and this can take years. If a claim can be amicably settled out of court, you could receive compensation within six months.
However, you really should check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you actually have three years in which to file your particular claim, as some accidents must be claimed for within months rather than years.
