Situated in Merthyr Tydfil, Troedyrhiw is a village with just over 5,000 residents. Up until the 19th century, old maps show that it was little more than a large farm, a corn mill and just three other buildings. In the mid 19th century things changed with the erection of a chapel, two taverns, an engine house and a wave of new housing, which at the time was described as ‘what human habitation ought to be’.
In the later part of the century, the first colliery was opened in the area, especially for the purpose of mining steam coal for sale. Over time, the ironworks in Merthyr Tydfil were replaced with additional mines. The Pontrhyn Bridge, which crosses the Taff in Troedyrhiw, is though to be built on the site of an ancient bridge that was over 500 years old.

Road traffic accidents in Troedyrhiw
The A4054 runs through the centre of the village, and around the edge, the A470. Both routes are busy roads which can sometimes be the scene of accidents, although thankfully most are minor. The collsionmap for the area shows that any serious accidents tend to happen at junctions and traffic islands outside of the village, the sorts of places which are typical accident blackspots nationwide.
Most road traffic accidents in Troedyrhiw happen because of driver error, often because of a lack of concentration or because they were trying to do something else while driving. Tuning the radio, programming a sat nav, or just admiring the scenery can mean a driver takes their eyes off the road, and even if this is just for a few seconds, it can be enough to cause an accident. When innocent people are injured as a result, it’s not fair that they should be left to pay the price.
If you have been the blameless victim of an accident on the roads, you could be searching for a personal injury solicitor in Troedyrhiw to help you make a compensation claim. Our knowledge and expertise make us the obvious choice, so give us a call today.

Slip, trips and falls in Troedyrhiw
Troedyrhiw is the same as anywhere else in the UK, in that people trip and fall almost every day. Generally, these accidents don’t result in serious injuries, and usually hurt the ego far more than the body. However, for some unfortunate victims, slips, trips and falls in Troedyrhiw can also have serious consequences.
Slips on wet floors which cause back injuries, trips on broken paving slabs that result in broken wrists, or falls down steps leading to head trauma; all of these examples could mean the victim requires medical attention for their injuries. In the worst cases, the injuries can be even more severe, and sometimes slips, trips and falls can even be fatal.
All too often, these injuries could have been prevented if someone else was taking more care. If you have been injured like this, and think someone else was to blame, we are here to help. You have up to three years in which to lodge a compensation claim, so even if your accident was some time ago, you could still take action against the responsible party.
