South Wales may be industrial, but it has many beaches and mountains where you can get away from the pressures of modern life. The Gower Coast, in particular has a lot to offer visitors, although it is a well-kept secret. Sometimes, walking along the cliff paths from Oystermouth to Caswell Bay you can see seals cavorting in the water below, and even, very occasionally, dolphins. However, you must take care as the path can be treacherous in places, despite the local authority’s attempts to make it safe for walkers. The last thing you want to do is tumble down the cliffs and sustain a whiplash injury in South Wales. Hopefully the broom plants would stop your fall as they are very dense in places.
Have You Had a Whiplash Injury in South Wales?
If you have suffered a whiplash injury in South Wales, perhaps you are contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim. Perhaps you haven’t started the process yet because you are uncertain about how to do this. If that is the case, call us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice. We understand that you may have sustained your whiplash injury in South Wales in a number of ways, as these are not always the result of road traffic accidents. The UK government has introduced new measures to prevent people receiving compensation for bogus whiplash injury claims, but if yours is a genuine case, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove the following:-
- You were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured;
- Another person was responsible for the accident; and
- You received medical attention as soon as you could after the accident (you need your medical record to make a personal injury compensation claim).
Accidents in Supermarkets
The most common accidents are slips, trips and falls, because they can happen anywhere. If you were in a supermarket, for example and there was liquid or food spilled on the floor, if there were no hazard signs warning you of the danger, you might slip and fracture a limb. If this happens to you then you should inform a member of staff and have them log the details of the accident in the accident book, and call an ambulance. You might be able to claim for your injury if you and your personal injury lawyer can prove that your accident was caused by the negligence of the staff, who should have cleaned up the spillage and put up warning signs.
