Llanelli is a town sitting close to the Lougher estuary in what is now Camarthenshire. In 2014 it hosted the National Eisteddfod for the sixth time (at least in its modern form). The name Llanelli means Church of St. Elli in Welsh, but this is somewhat ambiguous as there is a St Ellyw, who was female and a St Elli who was a male. The saints were supposedly alive in the 6th century but their lives have not been well-documented, or at least the documents were not preserved. Llanelli has produced some great rugby players and is proud of its long rugby-playing tradition. However, some people link Llanelli with the supernatural these days, as it seems to be the most haunted town in Wales, with its own ghost buster.
Road traffic accidents in Llanelli
It is said that at least one road in Llanelli is haunted, but if you were involved in one of the road traffic accidents in Llanelli, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries if the accident was caused because a ghost was on the road and you swerved to avoid it and hit another vehicle. It would be impossible to prove that you saw a ghost, especially if the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash didn’t see it.
If you have one of the road traffic accidents in Llanelli that sometimes occur (as they do everywhere) you must stop and ascertain if anyone was injured. If someone did sustain injuries you have to call the police and an ambulance, and wait until they arrive. You should exchange details of your insurers with the other driver involved in the accident and take a note of the registration number and the make, model and colour of the vehicle. Also make a note of what the weather was like at the time of the accident and the visibility and condition of the road.
Making a personal injury claim
To make a claim, you will need a copy of the police report and your medical report. You also must be in a position to prove that the accident was not your fault. A personal injury solicitor will probably be able to help you build a case to prove that another person was responsible for the accident.
