Road traffic accidents in Swansea
Ironically, in spite of the fact that one of the biggest employers in Swansea is the DVLA, there are still plenty of road accidents in the area.
The Welsh Government recently released its Annual Report into Police Recorded Road Accidents in 2016, containing information on the severity of injury and type of road user involved. It found that of the 4,921 road accidents in 2016 involving personal injury, there had been a reduction of 622 on 2015 (an 11 per cent reduction). These 4,921 road accidents resulted in 6,853 casualties, (829 fewer than in 2015). Unfortunately, 103 people were killed on Welsh roads, and 1,005 people were seriously injured (seven per cent fewer than in 2015), and 5,745 people were slightly injured (751 fewer or 12 per cent fewer) than 2015.
If you’ve been involved in road traffic accidents in Swansea, regardless of whether you were the driver of a vehicle or a passenger, or you were using public transport, or you were a pedestrian, cyclist or motorbike rider, you can make a claim for compensation for any accident which was not your fault.

Whiplash accidents in Swansea
Many people are put off making whiplash claims because of bad press. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we believe that if your injuries came about through no fault of your own, of course you should pursue a claim for whiplash accidents in Swansea.
Don’t feel embarrassed about your accident, no matter what the circumstances. We are all too well aware that even minor shunts can result in whiplash injuries that can cause issues for victims for weeks or even months. Research has shown that even low speeds can result in whiplash injuries; what is important is the difference in speed between the forces that collide.
Whiplash injuries can lead to a range of uncomfortable symptoms, namely: pain in the back, shoulders and neck; dizziness; headache; tiredness and irritability. Symptoms may not manifest themselves straight after the accident, so it is important that as soon as symptoms do make themselves felt, you visit a GP or other medical expert to receive a diagnosis.
Remember, if you wish to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline for compensation for your injuries, we will need evidence of your injuries. For more information, call us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Swansea
One of the most common types of accidents that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline is slips, trips and falls. Slips, trips and falls in Swansea may happen at work, while out and about in town, in a shop or even a leisure facility.
What is key if you wish to make a claim for compensation for slips, trips and falls, is that the accident was caused through no fault of your own. We will be looking for carelessness or negligence by someone else, maybe because they didn’t maintain a floor surface, or left a trip hazard in your path.
It may be that you have slipped on a wet floor somewhere, or tripped over cardboard boxes left on the floor of a shop or supermarket. Perhaps you have fallen because the carpet is rucked up or worn away. No matter what the cause, if the accident was not your fault, do consider giving us a ring, and we will see if we can win some money as a compensation for your injuries
Work accident in Swansea
It is estimated that of the 105,900 people working within Swansea and surrounds, over 90 per cent are employed in the service sectors. Employment is particularly high in public administration, education, health and banking, finance and insurance, or associated professional occupations associated such as administration, sales and retail.
You might think that work accidents in the area were therefore less common, as these are deemed safer occupations. The fact is that Wales had non-fatal injury rates which were statistically significantly higher than the Great Britain rate over the period 2014/15 to 2016/17 demonstrates that even in industries deemed less risky, accidents at work still happen all over the country.
If you have suffered a work accident in Swansea (it may well be a slip, trip or a fall, or a handling or lifting accident), then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out about making a claim for your injuries. No matter the severity or the type of work accident you have been involved in, we have specialist on hand who will fight your corner and hold your employer to account. You should never be put off from making a claim out of fear of losing your job, and to that end we will advise you and take your claim forward.
