Llanelli is a large town in Carmarthenshire, situated on the West Coast of Wales beside the Loughor Estuary. It is just 12 miles in distance to the west of Swansea. Welsh is still proudly spoken here in a town that has historic links to the coal mining, steel, and tinplate industries.
With a population of some 35,000 people, Llanelli is at present undergoing a facelift, courtesy of a £60-million donation from the regeneration programme. The town currently has five important projects underway, aiming to showcase a wide variety of business, entertainment and leisure facilities that Llanelli benefits from.
The scope of works covers a new theatre and an innovative social enterprise complex to be known as Y Ffwrnes. Llanelli House and the town library are undergoing refurbishment, and construction of a new leisure centre as well as a business and retail park, to be christened “East Gate,” are underway. The town centre itself is also due to have certain improvements carried out in Stepney Street and Vaughan Street. These upgrades include new canopies and lighting.
If you are a sports spectator, you’re in luck. Llanelli is one of the best-known rugby towns in the world, and the Scarlets, the local rugby team, not only have a superb sporting heritage, but they also enjoy passionate local support. Llanelli also has a good football team whose nickname is “the Reds.” They play in the Welsh Premier Football League, and they won the Welsh Cup in 2011.
For those who enjoy walking in the countryside and exploring local wildlife habitats, there is the Millennium Coastal Park; 22 kilometres of beautiful coastline containing a unique combination of tourist attractions.

- Were you given medical treatment for your injury? You can get a retrospective medical check, but one way or another you will need medical proof of your injury.
- Did the accident happen in the last three years? If the 3-year statute of limitations has expired, you may not be able to register a claim.

Whiplash accident in Llanelli
A whiplash accident in Llanelli involving two or more cars can happen at high or low speed. The higher the speed at the point of impact, the more serious the resulting whiplash injury can be. Having said that, a low-speed crash can still leave you with a significant injury that makes any head movement extremely painful.
Tests have shown that a speed of just five miles per hour at the point of impact is enough to cause a whiplash injury that can last for several days. More severe whiplash can last weeks or months, and in some cases victims never fully recover.
Because a whiplash injury is something that can be easily feigned, it is necessary to get a proper medical diagnosis before you can consider starting a claim. Any other proof, such as a police accident report, or photographs of the accident and damage done to any vehicles involved, will also be helpful.
Appointing us at Accident Advice Helpline to assist with your claim following a whiplash accident in Llanelli is a smart move. We have successfully secured financial compensation for thousands of whiplash victim since we first began trading back in the year 2000.
You might ask yourself whether or not it is worth claiming compensation. To find out, you should take our 30-second test. By answering a few simple questions, you can get an estimate of how much compensation you could be due.
If you call us today and speak to one of our friendly advisors, he/she can walk you through the test.
