Llanharan, as you might guess from the name, is in Wales. More accurately, it is a village in the borough known as Rhondda Cynon Taf. It also forms a community area with several other local settlements. It is home to only around 3,400 people according to the last Census that took place there. With such a small community, Llanharan road traffic accidents tend to be very unusual. However, any location can be the scene of an accident – it depends on a variety of factors and how people are driving.
Taking care on the roads is particularly important in villages, even though the volume of traffic may be considerably lower than you might expect. This is because the roads leading into a village may have the national speed limit in force. If this is the case, it could be that not everyone slows right down to go through the village itself.
Driving at the proper speed
Many people exceed the speed limits on Britain’s roads today. Most will only ever go over by a mile per hour or two, but others are keen to drive as fast as they can. They appear to have total confidence in their driving abilities.
However, most other drivers recognise the danger of speeding, and sadly there are cases where speeding drivers have caused other people to be seriously injured because of their negligent actions. Many villages like Llanharan do have ‘slow down’ signs and speed limit signs to announce a lower speed limit in force in the village. However, as we now know, some people may ignore these.
Finding out about making a claim for personal injury compensation
If you are caught up in a road accident that was caused by another driver speeding, or indeed doing anything else they should not have been doing, it is definitely worthwhile speaking to a professional injury compensation lawyer. This is easier to do than you might think, especially if you make a quick call to 0800 689 0500. Do this and you can find out more about the likelihood of making a no win, no fee* claim.
Accident Advice Helpline will be on the other end of that number. If you have experienced Llanharan road traffic accidents and your own accident happened within the last three years, making that call could be very worthwhile indeed. We are here to provide the support you need.
