York, located in North Yorkshire, is one of the oldest cities in the United Kingdom. The city, which now boasts over 200,000 residents, was founded by the Romans back in 71AD. At the time, it was the capital of this part of the UK (Britannia Inferior). Over the years, it grew rapidly, having a prominent role in the Middle Ages as well as in the formation of the Church of England.
Nowadays, the city is perhaps best known for tourism and business. Each year, 6.9 million visitors head to York to experience the delights of this fabulous city with a survey showing that 99% of them would recommend the city a friend or family member, a rather large satisfaction rate.
In a city of this size, accidents are bound to happen. In many cases, it may not even be the fault of the person who got into the accident. It may result in these people searching for a personal injury solicitor in Bognor Regis to claim compensation. If the following applies to your case, then you may be entitled to compensation:
- You were injured and sought treatment for the injury.
- The incident was the fault of somebody else
- The incident occurred within the last three years.
Road traffic accidents in York
In a bid to promote road safety in York, the City of York Council was one of the founding members of the 95 Alive Road Safety Partnership This group is an alliance of several different organisations who work closely together to ensure that the roads of York and the surrounding area are as safe as possible. One way in which York is planning to improve road safety is by introducing more 20mph zones throughout the area, particularly in the most heavily-traffic parts. This should not only improve safety for drivers, but also for those pedestrians traversing the centre of the city.
Of course, it does not matter how hard the council works to ensure that the roads are safe, there will always be negligent drivers. You could head out today and get into an accident due to somebody who was not paying attention to the road or driving at speed. This could result in serious injury which may cause you to lose income. If this happens, then Accident Advice Helpline wish to help you out.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can assist those who have been involved in road traffic accidents in York. When you get in touch with us, we will be able to help you to determine whether you have sufficient grounds for a compensation claim.
Whiplash accident in York
Whiplash is one of the most common accident injuries in the world. In the United Kingdom, it is so common that the country has often been referred to as the ‘whiplash capital of Europe’.
In most cases, the symptoms of whiplash will disappear quite quickly, often over the course of a few hours. However, in rare cases, people may be ‘out of action’ for weeks on end, sometimes months, due to the symptoms caused by their whiplash accident in York. Do you do deserve to lose money due to the negligence of somebody else?
If you have been diagnosed with whiplash in an accident that was not your fault, then we at Accident Advice Helpline can’t wait to hear from you. Call us today on 0800 689 5659 if you are calling.
Slips, trips and falls in York
Slips, trips and falls in York are, without a doubt, probably one of the most common accidents in the city. In most cases, you are going to get up relatively unscathed, if a bit shaken. However, in some cases you may suffer from a slightly more serious injury. Imagine falling from a height. Imagine tripping over a broken pavement and fracturing your leg. Imagine slipping on a wet floor in your supermarket and banging your head. If any of this happened, how long would you be unable to work? How long would you be unable to care for your family? How much money would you lose?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we do not wish to see anybody ‘out of pocket’ for an accident that was not their fault. This is why we urge you to call us today on 0800 689 5659 on a mobile if you believe that you may be entitled to compensation.
Work accident in York
In the 19th Century, York became the centre of a railway network. As a result, plenty of jobs were brought to the area. A fair number of these jobs were in the confectionary industry. In recent years, the city has moved away from confectionary and businesses related to railways. Nowadays, the city’s economy is very much focused on services with a healthy dose of tourism thrown in for good measure. Due to extensive redevelopment in the area, the city’s economy is predicted to grow over the coming years too.
While it is fair to say that the industry in York is no longer as dangerous as it once was, just because you are working in an office somewhere does not mean that you are immune to injury while at work. In fact, anybody could suffer a work accident in York. While many accidents at work are relatively minor and cause no lasting damage, there are a few which can put you out of action for weeks, sometimes months on end. All the while, you will not be earning a penny. Is this something that you deserve if the accident was the fault of your employer?
Your employer has a duty to ensure that you are safe while at work. If they breach this duty, you may wish to start looking for a personal injury solicitor in York who can advise you as to your rights.
