Serious injuries after being hurt in a car crash in Vale of Glamorgan might be the ones that make the local or national news, that doesn’t mean that the comparatively “minor” accidents aren’t important.
Whenever you talk about road traffic accidents people tend to focus on those who have been left with severe or life-threatening injuries. It’s understandable, but those with injuries like cuts and bruises, cracked ribs, whiplash or concussion should not be overlooked – especially when it comes to making a claim for compensation.
Anyone injured on the roads in the last three years, could be eligible to make a claim. That means that those with relatively minor injuries are treated with the same level of professionalism from our team of lawyers as someone with what might be considered to be a serious injury.
Picturesque but full of danger
The Vale of Glamorgan is a beautiful part of south Wales, but that doesn’t mean that the rural countryside doesn’t see its fair share of accidents. In fact, many motorists believe that there are less risks on the significantly quieter roads that work their way through the Welsh hills and valleys in comparison to the motorways.
It’s this approach that, if anything, causes more accidents and adds to the the number of people being hurt in a car crash in Vale of Glamorgan. By taking your attention off the serious task of driving and focussing more on the ability to drive quickly with less traffic around or answering their phone while behind the wheel, you actually increase the risk of accidents.
This means that innocent road users are then caught up in the accident and, quite often, they have no way of avoiding it. The smaller roads are often bordered by trees, hedges, walls, fences and even rivers which have their own risks.
Consequently, any kind of mistake behind the wheel could cause serious accidents that are only made worse by a collision with anything along the border of the road too.
