Newton is a small village of around 3,000 people, located in the City and County of Swansea in South Wales. It is part of the Mumbles community, which is a highly desirable location close to the stunning South Wales coastline. The Bristol Channel forms its southern boundary, and it is within striking distance of Swansea Bay.
Newton is a popular stop-off point for tourists who are on their way to the nearby beaches of Langland Bay, a family friendly beach with a coastal clifftop walk, as well as Caswell Bay, a Blue Flag beach with spectacular views and fantastic surfing conditions. The popular surfer’s paradise and designated area of outstanding beauty known as The Gower is a little further along the coast on a peninsular that is frequently lashed by waves from the Atlantic Ocean.
In theory, Newton should be an idyllic location to live in or visit, but sadly its beauty does not make the area immune from accidents. Were you travelling through Newton when you were injured in a road traffic accident? Or perhaps you are employed there and were injured at work? If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.

Road traffic accident in Newton
Reaching Newton, and the Gower peninsula beyond, is not always easy. The main route in passes through the city of Swansea, which can become terribly congested, particularly at peak times. Some of the roads that residents and visitors to Newton use have been named as amongst the busiest in South Wales.
In particular, Mumbles Road, Sketty Lane, Fabian Way and Oystermouth Road are notorious local congestion hotspots. Slow moving traffic and congestion such as this can lead to frustration amongst motorists, and unfortunately some try to make up time by driving in a dangerous manner. This situation is by no means unique to Newton, but can be a catalyst for road traffic accidents.
You may already be paying the price for someone else’s carelessness on the roads if you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries, and we are here to help. Give us a call to discuss your options, and our legal experts will ensure you are awarded the maximum amount possible.
The way in which we work is simple, transparent and effective. Once we have agreed to take on your case, it will be passed to our specialist solicitors. All you have to do, is to provide us with details of the accident and your injuries. Give us a call today, and we’ll be happy to answer your questions about claiming.
Whiplash accident in Newton
Not all accidents on the roads result in serious injuries. A large proportion of incidents occur at low speeds, often when stuck in traffic and concentration wanes. The forces involved are smaller than in high speed collisions, but still exert pressure on the body, often resulting in whiplash.
A typical whiplash accident in Newton involves damage to the soft tissues of the neck and shoulders. Vehicle occupants are secured into their seats by seatbelts, but their heads are flung forward in a ‘whipping’ motion, straining and damaging the tendons and ligaments. The resulting inflammation irritates the nerves and causes pain, stiffness and loss of movement. Studies have shown that 20 per cent of people with whiplash are still suffering symptoms a year later, so it is not always trivial matter.
If you are dealing with whiplash symptoms following an accident that was not your fault, you can turn to us for help. Our reputation has been built up over 16 years of serving clients, and we are very proud to offer exemplary customer services and powerful legal representation. Give our friendly advisors a call right now.
