Road traffic accidents in Caerphilly
Caerphilly has a busy trunk road running through it; the A4687, and another one across the top of the town; the A468. Of course, road traffic accidents in Caerphilly happen, just as often as anywhere else, but some roads are more dangerous than others.
In fact, one particular Caerphilly junction came fifth in a list of the most dangerous roundabouts in Wales. Over a three-year period the junction of Pontygwindy Road and Pwllypant Road had 12 accidents, resulting in 15 people being seriously injured. As much as the local authorities attempt to make this stretch of road safer, it’s always wise to be vigilant while traversing this particular route.
The majority of road traffic accidents are caused by driver error, with many of them happening at junctions and traffic islands. Drivers are not always as observant as they should be, and this can result in innocent victims becoming injured as a result. If you have been hurt because someone else didn’t take enough care, call and have a chat to our friendly advisors. They are here to help you, to answer all your questions and give you all the advice you need. Speaking to them puts you under no obligation to make a claim, so why not call us right now?
Whiplash Accident in Caerphilly
Most whiplash injuries are a result of road traffic accidents, but they can occur in other ways too. Anything that makes your head jolt out of its normal movement zone, such as a fall or being struck by an object, can cause a whiplash injury too.
If you are the innocent victim of a whiplash accident in Caerphilly, you’ll almost certainly be aware of pain in your neck and shoulder areas. However, that’s not always the only symptoms, and you could also experience:
- Difficulty moving because of a stiff neck
- Pins and needles in your arms and hands that can turn to aches
- Lower back pain
- Trouble sleeping because of the discomfort
Not all victims of this soft tissue injury will suffer all these symptoms, but life will certainly be difficult for a few weeks, until you recover. For most whiplash sufferers, problems will only last for a few weeks or so. However, for a few, the problems will continue for many months, or even years.
