    City accident claim lawyers

    There are certain similarities between the caseload of the city accident claim lawyers and the country accident claim lawyers who work for the leading law firm Accident Advice Helpline. They both deal with personal injury claims made by people who have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault and they both work hard to secure as high a level of compensation as they can for their clients. However, here the similarities end. City accident claim lawyers deal with a unique set of accidents and have become expert at working through the legal technicalities that they present. Here are some cases that are typical in the workload of city accident claim lawyers.

    Typical cases handled by city accident claim lawyers – road traffic accidents

    Driving in the city is not all like driving on country roads. There is a high concentration of junctions and roundabouts to negotiate in a safe way. Many city roads have multiple lanes and drivers need to change lane on a regular basis. The sheer volume of traffic means that people are always pulling out in front of you or are pulling over, causing you to have to drive around them.

    City traffic is unique. There are a large number of cyclists who are usually using the same roads as cars, heavy good vehicles and buses. Buses that stop very frequently and that are continually manoeuvring in and out of traffic streams are also a unique feature of towns and cities.

    This diverse mix of a large number of vehicles leads to a unique profile of accidents. The city accident claim lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline usually help people that have been injured in accidents that happened in queues of traffic. Claims from cyclists who have been knocked off their bikes by cars or buses at junctions are also common. The classic ‘rear end shunt’ in a line of traffic is another typical city road traffic accident.

    Typical cases handled by city accident claim lawyers – workplace accidents

    Working in the city is different from working in the country. Many countryside accidents involve agricultural machinery, chemicals or livestock. In the city workers are more likely to be office based, work in shops and restaurants or on the countless construction sites that seem to spring up in our cities every day. City accident claim lawyers working on office-based accidents find themselves frequently dealing with slips, trips or falls. This may be due to the floor area of offices not being kept clear.

    Shops and restaurants also feature this type of accident and commercial catering operations have the added hazard of greasy or wet floors. Construction accidents are sadly all too common. New office blocks, apartment blocks and shopping centres are continually being built in our city centres. The work involves heavy plant vehicles, machinery and working at heights. Scaffolding, ladders and mobile lifting platforms can present hazards if they are not used correctly. Sadly, extremely serious injuries can result from a fall from a height.
