    Accident in Preston?


    Often dwarfed by the presence of nearby Manchester and Blackpool, Preston is a relatively undiscovered gem of the North West. However, like any major town or city, it has its problems when to comes to accidents and the subsequent personal injuries.

    Preston accidents – slips, trips and falls

    Statistics from the local council show that, over the years, by far the most common cause of accidents in Preston has been people suffering from slips and falls. This could be for a number of reasons.

    For starters, it is hardly a secret that the weather in the north of England is not exactly the best, with regular bouts of rain and cold snaps commonplace. This can lead to perilous walking conditions being created. Whether it’s frozen puddles on the pavements or collections of rainwater walked through the glossy floors of shopping centre, the potential for slip and fall accidents is never far away.

    Preston is also a one-club town in footballing terms, with Preston North End enjoying the monopoly of local support. This means that, come match day, thousands of people are converging on one place. Any scenario where scores of people gather together is rife for trip and fall accidents occurring.

    Preston accidents – incidents on the road

    The main roads in and around Preston are extremely busy. Whether it’s locals heading to and from work or around town, or those from further afield passing through and on to other destinations, the roads can become extremely crowded, particularly during rush hour.

    The M6 and M62 are just two of the heavily used roads around Preston and a combination of high speeds and heavy traffic can all too easily lead to serious accidents on the road occurring.

    If you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, be it on the road, in public, at work or even whilst travelling, then it’s important to remember that you may be due some personal injury compensation.

    Providing your accident meets certain criteria, you could have a strong personal injury claim. The main criteria are as follows:

    • The accident occurred within the last three years
    • Your injuries required medical attention
    • The accident was demonstrably the fault of someone else

    If the above is all true, then call Accident Advice Helpline today. Our dedicated legal team can take your case on a no-win, no-fee** basis, usually achieving an out of court settlement.
