Boston in Lincolnshire is a small town and port on the East Coast of England. It is a name that has been used in other parts of the world, usually by migrants from the town setting up communities in other countries. The most notable of these is Boston in Massachusetts in the US.
With over 35 notable attractions in such a small town, the Bubble Car Museum has to be one of the more unusual ones. There are also nature parks, a zoo and aquarium, playgrounds for youngsters, as well as shops, bars and restaurants. Boston’s economy is based mainly on food production, road haulage to transport the food, tourism and the port.
Although it’s not a huge city, it doesn’t mean that accidents don’t happen in Boston. With over 60,000 permanent residents and plenty of visitors all year round, accidents do happen from time to time and can leave innocent people hurt and out of pocket. If this has happened to you while you were visiting, working or simply going about your life in Boston, we could help you claim compensation.

Road traffic accidents in Boston
Despite not being an enormous town, Boston has more than its fair share of road traffic accidents. Compared to other constituencies across the UK, the area around Boston and Skegness has 42 per cent more casualties from road accidents than the national average. This is, in part, due to the rural nature of the surrounding roads, where vehicles tend to travel more quickly and encounter fewer traffic calming measures.
Across the county of Lincolnshire, 59 people were killed on the roads last year, 15 of whom were motorcycle riders. The B1188 saw a number of serious accidents over the course of the year, and the A15 and A151 were both hot spots for road traffic accidents of varying severity.
The Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership is working to improve safety on the roads around the county and in Boston itself. They blame a combination of very young motor scooter riders, a high number of HGV’s on rural roads and too many distractions in modern cars for the high number of fatalities in the county, and are working to raise awareness and provide training for these critical user groups.

Whiplash accident in Boston
You could be injured in a whiplash accident in Boston when you least expect it. Your car could be shunted from behind, you call fall awkwardly or something heavy could hit you in the head. If we knew these things were going to happen, we would do something to prevent the accident, but, in reality, that’s just not an option.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries for which personal injury claims are made. Despite the high numbers of people who do make such a claim, around two in three people who have an eligible claim for whiplash never proceed with the case. This may be because they think their injury is not bad enough to bother with, but maybe they don’t know the facts.
In most cases, whiplash is a short-lived injury, usually healing within a couple of weeks. However, one in five people will go on to become a chronic sufferer, meaning their neck and back is never quite the same again. Imagine if you were impacted for life by your whiplash injury, and had passed up the opportunity to seek compensation when you could; it’s just not worth the risk.
When someone else was to blame for your accident, seeking compensation is the best way to ensure justice is served. You can find out free if you can claim by taking our simple 30-second test. You can do this here on the website, or over the phone with one of our friendly advisors. With just four questions to answer, you could find out not only if your claim is likely to be successful, but also how much you could end up receiving as a result of this claim.
We’re here to help at any stage of the process, so whether you’ve just realised you can claim compensation and want to find out more, or you’ve already heard enough and are ready to start your claim, there’s never a bad time to talk to us. Call today, and we’ll ensure you of a stress-free experience.
Work accident in Boston
With over 31,000 people employed in Boston, the employment rate is only just below the national average. The largest portion of them, almost 13,000, work in manufacturing or processing plants and a further 4,000 work in skilled trades. These types of job roles are traditionally riskier than office based positions, and have a higher incidence of accidental injury at work. However, people in these roles should not accept that becoming injured is ‘all part of the job’, and should still strive for excellence in health and safety.
Aside of these sectors, around a quarter of the population work in managerial, professional or administrative positions, and a further one in five work in retail. Although these types of jobs are not seen as particularly high risk, they still require both employers and employees to maintain health and safety standards to ensure accidents don’t happen.
There is plenty of health and safety advice available from Lincolnshire County Council, and from the UK’s Health and Safety Executive. If you have suffered because of a work accident in Boston and think your employer could have done more to protect you, it is your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
You don’t have to spend hours looking for a personal injury solicitor in Boston, as our solicitors are among the best in the country. This type of case can be highly complex and fraught with pitfalls, so it’s crucial to have a specialist on your side to give you the best chance of winning. Call today to find out more, and let us help you claim back what is rightfully yours.
Slips, trips and falls in Boston
Any area which is open to the public, including our own workplaces, need to be kept safe. This means doing everything possible to avoid slips, trips and falls occurring, including maintaining floor coverings, keeping clutter out of the way and ensuring the area is well-lit. These things are simple to do, and usually inexpensive or even free of charge.
Unfortunately, not all premises managers take these kinds of risks seriously, and all too often people become hurt as a result. Slips, trips and falls in Boston are one of the most common reasons we speak to people from the town, and why our legal experts are called in to help them put together a case.
You might think that a simple slip or fall is not really a serious issue, but we’ve seen some very nasty injuries from such accidents. Fractured bones are not uncommon, neither are cuts and bruises, head injuries and trauma to the spine or neck. If you’ve been hurt in a slip, trip or fall and think someone else could have done more to prevent it, talk to our advisors about whether you can claim compensation.
All our cases are handled on a no-win, no-fee* basis, so you don’t need any money up front in order to start your claim. Talk to us today, and discover just how easy securing compensation can be.
