    Abercanaid road traffic accidents


    Abercanaid road traffic accidents are thankfully few and far between. This is on account of the fact that Abercanaid is only a small village in the Welsh county of Merthyr. It has a population of approximately 5,000. Like many small villages in Wales, Abercanaid came into existence through the coal mining era. With the coal mines long since closed, the village’s only claim to fame is that celebrity singer Petula Clark once lived here.

    RTAs are a prolific cause of injury and death

    Road traffic accidents are one of the most prolific causes of both injury and death. This is the case not only here in the UK, but all over the world. Whist 5,000 inhabitants is not an awful lot in terms of the average population of villages all over the UK, it is still plenty enough to contribute to the UK’s overall accident statistics.

    RTA injury statistics for 2012

    We are still waiting for the statistics regarding the number of RTA’s in 2015, so we are still reliant on the figures from previous years. In 2012 these figures show:

    • The total number of people killed was 1,730
    • The total number of people killed or seriously injured was 23,380
    • The total number of casualties (all severities) was 184,010
    • The total number of children injured (all severities) was 15,730

    Due to its relatively small size, most RTAs that happen in and around Abercanaid are of a relatively minor nature the traffic usu. This is because traffic usually moves relatively slowly in this part of the world. However, even a gentle shunt can cause a whiplash injury. There have been plenty of those over the last 15+ years we’ve been operating here at Accident Advice Helpline. 

    Launching claims for whiplash injuries sustained in Abercanaid road traffic accidents

    Whiplash injuries that are sustained in Abercanaid road traffic accidents now have to be handled in a standard way here in the UK. This is due to the high number of fraudulent claims in the past. Insurance companies are now more pedantic about having the necessary proof that a whiplash injury has been sustained than they once were. You are therefore likely to be asked to supply:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Medical proof of the injury you sustained
    • Photographic evidence of the damage done to any vehicles involved
    • The names and addresses of any witnesses to the accident

    The blame for the accident must, of course, be attributable to someone other than the injury victim. Furthermore, the incident must have taken place within the past three years. It’s highly likely that this statute of limitations will be reduced in the near future.
