Rudry is a small village close to Caerphilly in south east Wales. There are a number of Grade II listed buildings in Rudry, but if you visit the area, you really should pay a visit to Caerphilly castle. It is the second largest castle in the UK (after Windsor castle) and was one of the most important strongholds in Wales. It was built in just three years between 1268 and 1271, which was a really impressive feat for builders at that time. The south eastern tower of the castle has been likened to the leaning Tower of Pisa as it leans at an angle of at least ten degrees; it is believed that this phenomenon was the result of subsidence. If you climb to the top of the castle you will have a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside, but be careful not to get a whiplash injury in Rudry, your holiday base.
Did you suffer a whiplash injury in Rudry?
If you have sustained a whiplash injury near Rudry the first thing to do is have medical treatment. If your accident occurred while you were walking in the street, call the police and an ambulance, especially if it happened because of an uneven surface. The police will inform the local authority of your accident and you may be entitled to make a claim against them for your whiplash injury near Rudry. A local authority has a duty to keep roads and pavements in a good state of repair, and failure in that duty can lead to personal injury compensation claims being filed. If your whiplash injury was caused because a manhole cover had not been properly replaced the police will inform the utilities company that owns it of your accident and you may be eligible to file a claim against them because of the negligence of workers.
How long do I have to make a claim?
The time period for making personal injury compensation claims for accidents which happen in the UK is usually three years from the date of an accident.
