Nestled in the Rhymney Valley in South Wales, Bargoed is a town with a rich history. Lying on the border of Caerphilly, close to the ancient regions of Glamorgan and Monmouthshire, Bargoed has seen much change over the years.
Since being redeveloped in the 19th century, Bargoed has more attractions than ever before. New retail units, a fitness centre and a state-of-the-art library have been built in order to cater for local residents. In addition to this, landscaping work in the area has created a scenic nature park, with a series of paths crossing the Rhymney River.
Although there are now various modern facilities in Bargoed, the town’s history is still prominently displayed. Inspired by former mineworkers, wooden sculptures are doted around the town’s nature park; paying tribute to minors from Bargoed and nearby Gilfach and Britannia.
Situated in the valleys, close to Brecon Beacons National Park, it’s hard to envisage anything going wrong in the small market town. As in all areas of the UK, residents of Bargoed can sometimes get caught up in accidents. Whilst these are, fortunately, fairly rare, they can have a big impact on the people affected.

Road traffic accidents in Bargoed
Due to its location in the Welsh valleys, people might assume that Bargoed is off the beaten track. In actual fact, the roads in and around Bargoed make it very easy to get from one place to another. The A472, running south of the town, provides easy access to both the A470 and the town of Pontypool. From the A470, motorists can easily head south to Pontypridd and Cardiff or north towards Merthyr Tydfil.
Although these roads provide easy access to nearby towns and cities, ‘A’ roads have been associated a rise in road traffic accidents. Unfortunately, serious injuries are eight times more likely to occur on these types of roads when compared to motorways. With many ‘A’ roads in and around Bargoed, road users may face the possibility of an accident occurring.
Like collisions in any location, road traffic accidents in Bargoed can have far-reaching consequences. Depending on the injuries you’ve suffered, you may be facing a lengthy recovery process. As well as a stay in hospital, you may need to attend various outpatient appointments once your injuries start to heal. Although this is beneficial for your health, it can put a dent in your resources.
Travelling to medical appointments isn’t always easy. Simply getting to and from your appointments can put you under added financial pressure. If your injuries mean that public transport isn’t a viable way to travel, you may even be spending money on expensive taxi fares.
Although your health is the most important thing to consider, the financial effect of road traffic accidents can’t be ignored. As many people can’t work whilst they’re recovering, they can end up getting into debt or struggling to pay their bills as a result of a poorly-timed collision.
When you’ve done nothing wrong, it simply isn’t fair that you should have to suffer in this way. If another driver has behaved recklessly on the road, you shouldn’t have to pay the price. Instead of suffering in silence, why not let Accident Advice Helpline take action on your behalf?
Rather than having to search for a personal injury solicitor in Bargoed or handle your claim alone, let our personal injury experts provide the help you need. From gathering evidence to presenting your claim and even negotiating a financial settlement; we can do it all.
Speak to our specialist personal injury advisers today and get your claim started as quickly as possible.
Whiplash accident in Bargoed
Sometimes referred to as ‘the silent injury’, people don’t always realise how debilitating whiplash can be. Perhaps because the injury is not usually visible, people may overlook just how painful and stressful a whiplash accident in Bargoed really is.
At Accident Advice Helpline, however, we certainly understand the implications of a whiplash injury. Associated with muscle pain, headaches, jaw pain and even dizziness, people can suffer a wide range of symptoms when they’re recovering from this type of injury.
Although whiplash can be caused by various types of accidents, it’s most-commonly associated with collisions and road traffic accidents. Whilst whiplash is certainly not the most serious injury which can occur due a car accident, it shouldn’t be overlooked either.
If you’ve been involved in an accident on the road and you don’t experience pain straightaway, you shouldn’t necessarily assume that you haven’t been injured. Whiplash often becomes apparent a few hours after the accident, so it’s still important to seek medical help. Although some patients simply need time in order to recover from whiplash, doctors may also prescribe pain medication and a regime of exercise which could help you to regain mobility in your neck.
Another thing to consider when you’ve sustained a whiplash injury is whether you want to make a claim for compensation. There’s nothing more frustrating than being hurt because someone else has behaved dangerously and making a compensation claim can certainly be the right way to go.
Fortunately, you won’t have to find your own legal representation or spend days searching for a personal injury solicitor in Bargoed if you want to obtain compensation. As a national law firm, we can start working on your compensation claim straightaway. With us working on your case, you can forget about your claim and focus on getting back to your daily routine as quickly as possible. In fact, we’ll do everything it takes to ensure you receive the right amount of compensation for your injury.
Don’t give up your chance to claim compensation after an accident that wasn’t your fault. Call Accident Advice Helpline now and our personal injury specialists will provide all the help you need.
Slips, trips and falls in Bargoed
When you’re walking around the town centre or exploring the local parks and nature reserves, you shouldn’t have to think about slips, trips and falls. In fact, people shouldn’t have to contend with the possibility of an accident when they step outside their front door. If people in authority don’t take their obligations seriously, however, the risk of accidents increases.
Poorly maintained highways, cracked pavements, damaged playground equipment and even badly laid turf can all cause injuries to occur. It only takes a second to fall or trip and, in this time, you could suffer a wide range of injuries. From spinal damage to fractured bones and facial injuries, people sustain all kinds of harm because of slips, trips and falls in Bargoed.
We don’t think it’s fair that innocent victims suffer because people haven’t done their jobs properly. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll fight on your behalf and ensure that the people responsible are held to account. In doing so, we’ll also help you to obtain the compensation you deserve.
If a local authority has failed to make the area safe, for example, or a company hasn’t enforced health and safety laws, we’ll take them on and ensure that justice is done.
Let us take the hassle out of making a claim. With our dedicated personal injury solicitors working for you, you can claim compensation easily and quickly. Simply call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to our specialist advisers to find out more.
Work accident in Bargoed
Although many people do work in the town of Bargoed itself, a significant number of people also commute to other areas for work. As Bargoed is a relatively small area, residents are often employed in nearby locations, such as Merthyr Tydfil, Pontypridd and even Cardiff.
With various companies situated in south Wales, residents have the chance to work across a number of sectors. One thing they should have in common, however, is being safe at work. No employer should expect their employees to risk being hurt at work and they should make every effort to ensure that work-related injuries are a thing of the past.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Employers may fail to identify the risks or they may simply ignore potential hazards in the workplace. As well as being unfair to employees, this type of conduct can result in them facing serious sanctions.
If you’ve been hurt because of a work accident in Bargoed, it’s important to make your voice heard. Making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline helps to ensure that workplace safety is a hot topic and you may be able to prevent other people from sustaining similar injuries.
