Newport Compensation


Newport is a cathedral and university city, which also holds unitary authority status, within the ceremonial county of Gwent in south east Wales. The city can be found along the course of the River Usk, close to its confluence with the Severn Estuary and is approximately 12 miles (19 km) northeast of the Welsh capital of Cardiff.

A Potted History Of Newport

Newport began life a little further upstream than the current city, in the form of the Roman settlement known as Carleon. The settlement which outgrew these Roman beginnings and outlasted the Roman occupation of Britain became an important port during the Norman era when a castle was built in the area to protect the coastline.

Newport gained its first charter as far back as 1314, but it was in the 18th and 19th century that the settlement really began to grow in earnest. This growth was particularly marked before 1850 as up to this point the port was the main focus of coal exports from the South Wales Coalfield. After 1850, Newport became somewhat eclipsed by Cardiff and the importance of the port declined. The settlement remained an important manufacturing and engineering centre, however, and was granted its city status in 2002.

Modern Day Newport

Today, Newport is the largest urban area within the historic county boundaries of Monmouthshire and the preserved county of Gwent and one of the most significant population centres in the whole of Wales.

The 2011 census puts the population of the city at around 146,000, making it much larger than the majority of settlements in Wales and meaning that it plays host to a comparatively large number of accidents and injuries. It is for that reason, therefore, that we will now discuss the key aspects of Newport compensation claims.

Newport Compensation Claims

When discussing Newport compensation claims, the first thing to mention is when these claims are actually possible. This is when somebody suffers an injury that was definitively the fault of another party, be that another individual, an organisation or a corporation.

These Newport compensation claims, therefore, can be seen as a means for injury victims to gain a degree of recompense for the pain they suffer through no fault of their own. What we must consider now then, is who you could turn to for help if you are ever in a position to pursue such a claim.
