Wolverhampton is a metropolitan borough and city in the West Midlands. Once little more than a market town, it is now a thriving community with a major service sector and engineering based/aerospace industries. Considering the type and size of these industries, it is of no surprise to see that Wolverhampton workers occasionally get injured in accidents at work
Road traffic accidents in Wolverhampton
Sprawling over an area covering approximately 26.81 square miles (69.44 square km), it is divided into 52 localities/urban districts, connected and criss-crossed by a dense maze of urban and major roads. Constantly filled with traffic, these roads are often the scene of road accidents, some of which can be serious.
Slips, trips and falls in Wolverhampton
Home to two major shopping areas, the Mander Centre and the Wulfrun Centre, Wolverhampton also features an array of independent local shops and well known chain stores. In addition, the city is home to several noteworthy places of interest, including:
