Located in Kent in South East England, Dover is a town and major ferry port that faces France across the strait of Dover, at the narrowest part of the English Channel. It has a rich history as a port, with archaeological evidence suggesting that people as far back as the stone age have always used the area to cross the sea to the continent. Dover lies south-east of Canterbury, east of Maidstone, and north-east of Dungeness and Hastings. Dover is home of the Dover Calais ferry through the Port of Dover, and is renowned across the world for its chalk cliffs, known as the White Cliffs of Dover. The 2011 UK census measured the population of Dover as 31,022.
If you have had an accident in the last three years while out and about in Dover, and you would like to make a claim for your injuries, Accident Advice Helpline should be able to assist you. For more information about making your claim for compensation, call us on the numbers below.
Road traffic accidents in Dover
The main communication artery through Dover is the A2 road, once a Roman road, and then after the late 18th century a toll road. It links Dover with Canterbury. The other main routes, travelling west and east, are the A20 to Folkestone and onwards to London, and the A258 through Deal to Sandwich.
Kent’s most dangerous roads according to the Road Safety Foundation include part of the A256 through Dover. The Road Safety Foundation produced a map showing the statistical risk of death or serious injury occurring on Britain’s motorways and A road network in the South East region and the A256 was part of that. The risk was calculated by comparing the frequency of road crashes resulting in death and serious injury on every road, with the amount of traffic each road carries.
If you have been involved in road traffic accidents in Dover and the accident was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation for the injuries you received. Call Accident Advice Helpline today and talk to one of our experienced and friendly advisers. They’ll ask you to tell them all about the accident – how it occurred, who you think was at fault, etc., and they’ll ask about your injuries too.

In return we will be able to give you an estimate of the amount you could be in line for if you go ahead and claim compensation. All it takes is one phone call, so get in touch with us today.
Whiplash accidents in Dover
Many a personal injury solicitor in Dover will shy away from taking on whiplash accidents, but here at Accident Advice Helpline, we treat whiplash like any other accident. If you have suffered whiplash injuries, in an accident that was not your fault, why shouldn’t you make a claim?
Congestion is one of the big reasons we see for whiplash accidents, and of course in Dover, heavy lorry congestion can lead to congestion building in the areas surrounding the Port of Dover when TAP is implemented to stack lorry traffic. This has a knock on effect throughout the area and with other traffic.
Invariably, in heavy and slow moving traffic, there will be a number of motorists who become frustrated and aggressive. This can lead to risk taking and loss of temper, resulting in lane changes, abrupt manoeuvring, and if you’re unlucky enough to get caught up in it, a rear end or sideways shunt.
Many people assume that slow traffic means less serious injuries, and fortunately in most cases this is true. Most whiplash accidents in Dover will result in whiplash injuries that only require rest and painkillers. However, if you have received medical treatment for your whiplash injuries and you would like to take the opportunity to make a no-win, no-fee* claim, call us today and see what we can do for you.
Slips, trips and falls in Dover
The sheer scale of the number of slip, trip and fall accidents around the UK every year is mind-boggling and this is borne out by the number of claims we see in and around Dover. There are more slips, trips and falls in Dover than you might think, and no matter how silly the incident that occurred, or how minor your injuries, remember that if you weren’t to blame for the accident and you received medical treatment of some kind, you can make a claim.
You may have slipped on an untreated pavement, or fallen down stairs where the lighting was poor. Perhaps you were in a shop and you tripped on items left on the floor. If you were not to blame for the accident, and it was caused by the carelessness or negligence of someone else, or was down to the negligence of a business, why not get in touch with us today. We’ll make a no-win, no-fee* claim on your behalf and you could receive your compensation more quickly than you imagine.
Work accident in Dover
Some of the most serious claims we make are after work accidents. We appreciate that not everyone wants to make a claim against their employer, because they fear that doing so may cost them their job.
However, here at Accident Advice Helpline, we would urge you to reconsider if you’re having doubts about claiming. Your employer has a duty of care to their employees, and is obliged to follow health and safety legislation. Where they don’t attend to their duties they can be prosecuted. Any work accident in Dover can be potentially serious, perhaps even fatal. If you don’t make your claim and take your employer to task for their failings, the next incident may result in the loss of life of one of your colleagues.
For a confidential and no-obligation discussion about making a claim for a work accident, call us today. We’ll take every precaution to uphold your employment rights.
