Situated in Essex in the east of England, Brentwood is only 20 miles from London. It is a small suburban town with a rural feel because of the countryside and woodlands that surround it.
It has a small but growing shopping area along the High Street, with millions of pounds being spent on redevelopment. It has attracted some large companies to have their headquarters based there, all of which contributes to a low unemployment level of just 1.9%.
Entertainment-wise, it’s a very busy town. With over 40 performing arts groups, festivals of many different kinds, groups for youngsters, operatic societies, chess tournaments and a whole host of other events, there is never a shortage of something to do in Brentwood. It even has its own local radio station, Phoenix FM.
It seems that there is everything you need in the town, but would you be able to find a specialist personal injury solicitor in Brentwood if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault?

Road traffic accidents in Brentwood
Brentwood has plenty of busy roads itself, and is also close to the hectic M25. The five most dangerous roads in the area had a total of 784 reported crashes on them in just one year, the worst of them being Concord Road. Thankfully, no deaths were reported from any of these incidents.
Nationwide, five people lose their life in a road traffic accident each day. This is a huge improvement on the 1980’s, when even with the lower amount of traffic on our roads, on average 15 people a day did not survive an accident. Improvements to vehicles, to highways and to driving skills have all added up to make the roads a safer place to be.
Even so, many road traffic accidents do still happen, many of which result in injuries that change lives forever. When the accident was caused by someone being careless, negligent or breaking the law, isn’t it right that they should be made to take responsibility for their actions?
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, our experts are here to help you make a personal injury claim. Don’t limit yourself only to a personal injury solicitor in Brentwood; we have a nationwide track record of success, and the legal muscle to give your claim the very best chance of success.

Whiplash accident in Brentwood
Whiplash is the most common injury sustained from car accidents in the UK today. Although not usually a life changing injury, whiplash can be very painful and can leave the victim unable to work, drive or enjoy their leisure time in the way they used to.
The reason whiplash accidents are on the rise is due to a couple of important factors. First, there are more cars on the road; in fact, the UK has the highest number of cars per square mile out of any EU country. Secondly, more people are wearing seatbelts than ever before, meaning lives are being saved every day. The downside of this is, because your torso is immobilised in a crash, your neck takes most of the force of the impact, leading to damaged soft tissues and the condition we know as whiplash.
Whiplash can occur even at speeds of as slow as five miles per hour, so even in the Brentwood rush hour, a light shunt can cause more damage than you’d think. As well as vehicle accidents, whiplash can be caused by falling awkwardly, playing contact sports or in being hit in the head by an object. If you suspect you have a whiplash injury, you must seek medical attention.
Whiplash is one of the most reasons compensation claims are made. Our solicitors have helped thousands of people following a whiplash accident in Brentwood, and could help you too. Call us today, and find out how we can help you.
