    Personal Injury Solicitors in Eastbourne

    Situated on the south coast, in the county of West Sussex, Eastbourne is a popular seaside resort in the UK. Just 19 miles outside of Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne is located close to Beachy Head and is part of the Eastbourne Downland Estate.

    With a growing population, Eastbourne is undergoing something of a revival. Although the town has always been a popular tourist resort, many people are now choosing the move out of nearby cities and into the picturesque town.

    With plenty of attractions and panoramic views of the sea, it’s hardly surprising that Eastbourne is such as popular place to live and work. Residents have access to a number of cultural venues, as well as numerous bars, restaurants and shops.

    The Eastbourne Lifeboat Museum and Eastbourne Heritage Centre are popular with tourists, as is the Sovereign Harbour and Herstmonceux Castle. Eastbourne Pier is, perhaps, the most iconic landmark in the town and is still home to a variety of shops, amusements and entertainment venues.

    Although Eastbourne is considered to be a safe place to live, accidents can happen in any town. When the number of visitors increase during the summer months, this can lead to certain areas becoming crowded and this may lead to people getting hurt.

    When accidents happen, it’s sometimes easy to write them off as being ‘bad luck’ or ‘one of those things’, but you shouldn’t be too quick to do this. If you weren’t responsible for the accident, there’s a good chance that you’re entitled to compensation.

    If you’ve been hurt and you want to find out if you’re able to make a compensation claim, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. We’re one of the most respected personal injury law firms in the UK and we help numerous accident victims each year.

    Road traffic accidents in Eastbourne

    Although Eastbourne is situated on the coast, it’s not an isolated town by any means. The A27 and A22 run close to the town and provide easy access to inland locations. The A259 runs through to the town and carries on all the way to St Mary’s Bay in the east and Chichester to the west.

    Although this route is a popular carriageway, it is known for being particularly dangerous. In fact, it has been cited as one of the most dangerous roads in the whole of the UK, with the highest proportion of accidents in the south east occurring between Eastbourne and Hastings.

    Whilst traffic accidents can occur anywhere, hazardous roads, such as the A259, may see more than their fair share of incidents. When collisions do occur, they tend to range in severity. In some cases, people may suffer minor injuries as a result of road traffic accidents in Eastbourne but others may sustain very serious injuries as a result of these types of accidents.

    If you’ve been injured on the road, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get compensation for your injuries. If you believe another road user was responsible for the collision, let us prove they’re liable.

    We’ll help to collate the relevant evidence so that we’re able to prove exactly who is responsible for your injuries. Following this, we’ll set about making your claim so that you receive an appropriate amount of compensation.

    Even though the incident may have happened in the town, you won’t need to find a personal injury solicitor in Eastbourne. As a national law firm, we’re well-equipped to assist claimants in Eastbourne, the south east and anywhere else in the country.

    Whiplash accident in Eastbourne

    Although many people suffer from whiplash each year, there are still plenty of misunderstandings when it comes to this type of injury. Whilst whiplash can be caused by relatively minor accidents, it can also occur because of serious collisions and impacts.

    In some cases, however, people may sustain whiplash when they’re trying to avoid another, more serious, accident. If you notice a car veering across the carriageway, for example, you may begin to break so that a high-speed collision doesn’t occur. In doing so, you may avoid a more serious accident but you may be unable to avoid an impact of any kind.

    Whilst you may have preventing a high-speed accident from happening, you may still sustain injuries. As whiplash is often caused by an impact of some kind, this is exactly the kind of situation which can give rise to whiplash related injuries.

    Whiplash can be an extremely frustrating injury, particularly when you’ve done everything you can to avoid an accident happening. If you’ve been hurt because of a whiplash accident in Eastbourne, why not make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline?

    We can help you to take action against the person or people responsible and we’ll handle your claim from start to finish. If you’re keen to find out more about the help we can provide, contact our expert personal injury advisers today.

    Slips, trips and falls in Eastbourne

    With an enviable coastline, Eastbourne is an attractive location for keen walkers and hikers. With dedicated trails, walkers can decide to embark on a lengthy trek or simply take a stroll along the beach when it suits them.

    Although most people are able to walk around the town without any incidents occurring, slips, trips and falls in Eastbourne aren’t uncommon. In fact, slips, trips and falls aren’t unusual anywhere in the UK and anyone can be affected by this type of incident.

    When people slip or fall, they can suffer different types of injuries. Falling from a significant height may result in more serious injuries occurring, for example. If you simply stumble when you’re walking along the pavement, you may escape the incident with a sprain or strain. Alternatively, if you hit your head as your fall or if you land awkwardly, you could suffer from broken bones, fractures and even head and brain injuries.

    If you’ve been hurt because of slips, trips and falls, it’s important to get medical help. Even if you don’t think you’ve sustained serious harm, it’s always best to get a professional opinion.

    Once you’ve received the appropriate treatment, you’ll be able to consider making a claim for compensation. For advice and help with your claim, there’s no need to spend time finding a personal injury solicitor in Eastbourne. All the assistance you need is available with just one phone call.
