Widnes is an industrial town within the borough of Halton, in Cheshire, England, with an urban area population of 58,300 in 2010. Historically in Lancashire, it is located on the northern bank of the River Mersey where the estuary narrows to form the Runcorn Gap. Directly to the south across the Mersey is the town of Runcorn. Upstream and 8 miles (13 km) to the east is the town of Warrington, and downstream to the west is the neighbouring area of Speke, of the city of Liverpool.
Due to the strong industrial roots of this town it is thriving with businesses both large and small and is a fast paced and hard working environment. Perhaps this is why the injury lawyer in Widnes team at Accident Advice Helpline deal with so many accidents in the work place compensation claims.

The injury lawyer in Widnes team at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help anyone who has suffered injuries as a direct result of an accident in the work place that was not their own fault.

They will then provide them with the legal advice and information that they need. Finally they will offer legal representation and fight to gain these people the cash compensation that they deserve.
If you have had an accident in the work place then we need to establish if the company was at fault. If they have neglected health and safety then they certainly are. Neglecting the health and safety of their workers makes them responsible for accidents which happen as a result and the consequences of these accidents. An employer should:
- Ensure working environment is safe and potential hazards have been identified
- Provided all employees with adequate health and safety training.
- Provide protective equipment and clothing for all employees.
- Regularly check machinery and tools.
If some aspect of health and safety has been neglected by your employer then maybe we can help.
