Mountain Ash is a town and community within the Cynon Valley, in the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf in the south of Wales. As with much of south Wales, Mountain Ash’s fortunes have been inextricably linked to those of the coal mining industry, and at the height of coal mining’s powers in Wales the town had a population of more than 11,000 residents. This meant that when the collieries and related factories began to close in the 20th century, the town suffered a great deal of deprivation and decline, which explains why the population now stands at a much lower level of 7,039, as of 2001.
While this level of population is considerably lower than the town once hosted, it is still enough to mean that Mountain Ash is a considerable urban centre which faces the issues with which large towns have to unfortunately deal. These issues include having to deal with greater amounts of heavy traffic, higher levels of air and noise pollution, and a higher chance of accidents and injuries.
It is this last issue which reveals the reason why for personal injury solicitors in Mountain Ash, personal injury compensation claims are likely to be fairly common.
