Road traffic accidents in Bradley Stoke
Bradley Stoke is part of South Gloucestershire. Like many other similar-sized parts of the UK, this county has seen a reduction in overall road casualty numbers, from 705 in 2011 to 522 in 2015. However, fatalities actually rose sharply over this period, from 1 to 5.
South Gloucestershire Council is combatting this with a number of road safety education measures aimed at children young people and adults. However, everyone has a part to play in keeping the roads safer. You can be the most careful and considerate driver, but you can always mitigate the behaviour of others on the roads.
Serious road traffic accidents in Bradley Stoke and elsewhere are usually caused by reckless driving, including speeding, not paying attention on the roads (including using a mobile phone while driving) and driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.
If you were injured in an accident like this and it was someone else’s fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation that could help you to recover some or all of the costs you’ve incurred as a result, including prescription charges and medical bills. A personal injury solicitor in Bradley Stoke could help you to make a claim, but with so many to choose from, how do you narrow it down?
You could base it on reputation. Accident Advice Helpline is one of the largest law firms in the UK so we can help you wherever your accident took place. Our reputation is second-to-none; we score a massive 4.7 out of 5 on feefo.com, and we’re represented by well-loved TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen. She agreed to become our Patron on the basis of extensive personal research she carried out into our service.
She trusts us, so why not pick up the phone and call us today to find out more?
Whiplash accident in Bradley Stoke
Whiplash is a condition that is usually sustained in a road traffic accident. It usually occurs in slow-speed rear-end collisions, and happens when the head and neck are jolted forward and back suddenly. The muscles in the neck become overextended, leading to strain. This results in symptoms common in whiplash, including muscle spasms and pain, pins and needles in the shoulders and arms, headaches, fatigue and dizziness.
If you were injured in a whiplash accident in Bradley Stoke, you should first of all ensure you are checked out by a medical professional. If you are able to, you should also call the police who will be able to give you an incident report number that you’ll need later. Get the names and addresses of any witness who can verify what happened, and take photos on your smartphone too.
All of this can be used as evidence to prove that you weren’t responsible for your injuries. You’ll need expert representation to help you make the most of that evidence; you could use a personal injury solicitor in Bradley Stoke to help you, but you can’t always be sure a solicitor or firm specialises in this kind of case. Many solicitors practice law in a range of fields, and you need some specialist to help.
Accident Advice Helpline specialises solely in personal injury cases, and our solicitors are fully qualified, with specialist knowledge and experience. They’ll put that experience to good use helping you to make a successful claim. Call us today to find out more.
Slips, trips and falls in Bradley Stoke
Slips, trips and falls in Bradley Stoke can happen anywhere, at any time. In most cases, they are random, unavoidable accidents that couldn’t have been prevented and, luckily, result in only minor injuries and maybe some embarrassment, if it happened in a public place.
However, on some occasions, these accidents are more serious, resulting in broken bones or fractures, especially in the wrists and ankles. Sometimes, too, the accidents took place because of someone else’s careless or disregard. If that’s the case, they can be held responsible for the accident.
If you were injured in an accident like this and you believe that someone else was responsible, you could make a claim against them. Such a claim could help you to recover lost earnings, if you had to take time off work to recover. While a personal injury solicitor in Bradley Stoke could help you to make that claim, many people are put off by the prohibitively high cost of solicitors.
That’s why Accident Advice Helpline works on a completely no-win, no-fee* basis. You’ll get help, advice and support throughout your claim, as well as expert, specialist representation, and all at no upfront cost. Call us today to take advantage of this fantastic service.
Work accident in Bradley Stoke

Of course, sometimes these accidents are unavoidable. However, employers have a duty of care to ensure that their employees are safe, and should carry out regular risk assessments. Any hazards identified should be removed or reduced as far as possible, and signposted.
