Ewloe is a village in the Welsh county of Flintshire. It is near to Queensferry and Shotton and to the Wales-England border. The village forms part of the North Wales region of Deeside.
The current population of Ewloe (which is also an electoral ward) is around 5,420. The village expanded rapidly during the late 1990s and early 2000s. This coincided with the arrival into the area of several major employers. Many of the new residents were housed in the newly built St David’s Park housing estate. This prestigious estate is popular with young professionals and families respectively but there have been concerns locally about the adjoining park and play area.
One of the most notable historic landmarks is Ewloe Castle. The remains of the castle are free to enter and are an example of a typically Welsh castle with a characteristic D-shaped tower. It is thought to have been built by Llywelyn ap Gruffudd (‘the Last’) after 1257.
As the number of residents of the village increased, as did the number of people who could get injured in an accident that was not their own fault. More people were working in the area and so the potential for workplace accidents increased. Similarly, more people were driving and walking around the area and so the potential for road accidents and slips, trips and falls increased.

We have made it our mission to help people just like you. Using a personal injury solicitor in Ewloe is one option but you may prefer to use our national law firm.

Road traffic accidents in Ewloe
The busy A55 expressway passes through Ewloe. This major road is also known as the North Wales Expressway and the Chester to Bangor Trunk Road. The section that passes through Ewloe is notorious for poor weather conditions including fog, ice and snow in winter months. Sadly, accidents are more common in this type of weather.
Another busy road in the area is the A494 from Ewloe to Deeside Park. This section has been identified as a cluster site for road traffic accidents in Wales. The designation means that there have been four personal injury accidents in three years in a 100m radius according to figures published by the Welsh Government.
The area around Ewloe is by no means the only accident cluster site in Wales. However, it is clear that accidents happen on the roads in this area. A certain number of road traffic accidents in Ewloe could have been avoided if the drivers concerned had behaved in a different way. Getting injured as a result of another driver’s carelessness is very upsetting. We are here to help you after this type of accident.

Slips, trips and falls in Ewloe
Slips, trips and falls are some of the easiest accidents to prevent. However, they are also the most common type of accident to take place in public areas. The circumstances that lead to this type of accident are very varied. At some stage there is often an oversight or lack of care by the operators and managers of public spaces. For example, if a spillage is not spotted quickly and cleaned up it is likely that someone will slip on it. Yet the fault may have occurred further up the managerial chain. Perhaps the management of the public space failed to introduce policies, procedures and training that would have ensured that the spillage was dealt with properly.
The range of injuries that can result from slips, trips and falls in Ewloe is huge. Just about any part of the body can sustain an injury. The most common injuries, however, are to the forearms, hands and lower limbs. Some serious accidents can even result in life-threatening head injuries.
