Llandudno is a seaside town and resort in Conwy, north Wales, and has been called the Queen of North Wales Resorts, lying between Great and Little Orme, two headlands. It has a North Beach and west beach, one being on the coast of the Irish Sea, while the other is on the banks of the Conwy estuary. The town came into its own in Victorian times as the elegance of the buildings readily demonstrates. The tramway still operates on the Great Orme, and this has been in operation for more than a hundred years, a little piece of Victorian Wales still functioning. It is notable for being one of only three cable-hauled tramways in the world (the other two are in San Francisco and Lisbon). However, if you want an aerial view of Llandudno, take the cable car from Happy Valley to the summit of the Great Orme; using these forms of transport lessens your chances of being one of the statistics of road traffic accidents in Llandudno.
Road traffic accidents in Llandudno
If you have driven a long distance to get to Llandudno for a weekend break or for a longer stay, you might be feeling sleepy and not as alert as usual. You may not exactly go to sleep at the wheel, but you may not be paying attention to other road users as much as you normally would and before you know it, you may have had one of those road traffic accidents near Llandudno. If the accident was your fault, you would be unable to make a claim for personal injuries, although your passengers could, via your insurance company, and so could others involved in the accident.
If you are involved in any road traffic accidents in Llandudno or elsewhere, you must stop and find out if anyone has been injured. If they have been, you need to call the police and an ambulance and wait for them to arrive.
When can I make a claim for injuries?
You may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured. You also must demonstrate conclusively that someone else was to blame for the accident.
When you are injured in a road traffic accident, the police are informed and they will write a report which you will need a copy of, as well as one of your medical report if you intend to make a claim.
