    Road traffic accidents in Senghenydd


    Senghenydd is a former mining town in the Aber Valley, situated close to Caerphilly in south east Wales. Like so many other towns and villages in South Wales, Senghenydd grew in the 19th century when the coal mines were developed in the South Wales coalfields. Up until 1891 when the first collieries opened the area had been agricultural. The Universal Colliery near Senghenydd was the scene of two major mining disasters. The first huge explosion, in May 1891, claimed the lives of all but one of the eighty-two men who worked in the pit. Then on October 14th 1913, the worst disaster in Britain claimed the lives of 440 people. Luckily road traffic accidents in Senghenydd are usually not serious, and certainly they don’t claim as many lives in a single incident.

In order to be eligible to file a claim for injuries arising from any of the road traffic accidents in Senghenydd, there are two main points that you must satisfy.

    Accidents involving motorised vehicles

    If the accident in which you were injured involved a motorised vehicle, then the police should be informed.
