Llandrindod Wells is a town in Powys in mid-Wales. It was the Romans who understood the health-giving properties of mineral springs and their site at Castell Collen, which is just outside Llandrindod Wells, is now of archaeological importance. However, their knowledge was lost after they departed from Britain, and it wasn’t until the end of the 17th century that the springs were once again mentioned in writing. Llandrindod Wells became popular for its water in the mid 18th century, with tourists who wished to ‘take the waters’ later being able to get there by train. Today few people recognise the healthy properties of the mineral water, but visitors still go to Llandrindod Wells, drawn by some of the annual events held there, such as the Drama Festival Week in May. Of course the Royal Welsh Show takes place close to Llandrindod in Llanelwedd, in July.
Road traffic accidents in Llandrindod Wells
The roads around this spa town are much busier than they were in Victorian times when people actually did ‘take the waters’ so now you could be involved in one of the road traffic accidents near Llandrindod Wells. At this very moment you may be contemplating the possibility of making a personal injury compensation claim because of injuries sustained in one of the road traffic accidents near Llandrindod Wells.
What do I have to prove to make an injury claim?
In order to make a claim for injuries sustained in one of the road traffic accidents near Llandrindod Wells, you must first of all be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident. Secondly you must prove that another person was to blame for it.
If, for example, you had a collision with a deer, and it was a wild one, you would not be able to claim for injuries or damage to personal property as there would not be a person whose insurance company would cover the costs of compensation.
What you need for a claim
If anyone sustains injuries in a road traffic accident you would have to inform the police who will investigate, ask for witnesses to come forward and then write a report. You need the police report to make a claim, and you will also need a medical report detailing the extent of your injuries. You should have medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident.
