The 2011 Census showed that Guildford had a population of 137,200, from 129,700 in 2001, which was an increase of 7,500 or 5.8 per cent.

Road traffic accidents in Guildford
It isn’t just car drivers who experience road traffic accidents. At Accident Advice Helpline we work with car drivers and their passengers, as well as passengers from public transport, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians. Pedestrians can be especially vulnerable, particularly when road layouts and crossing areas are changed, or underpasses taken out to make way for development. More people having to cross busy roads is a sure recipe for disaster!

Dozens of people are injured in Guildford and in its surroundings every year through no fault of their own, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t receive a compensation pay-out for your injuries.

Whiplash accidents in Guildford
Guildford is a town that suffers greatly with congestion. Recently, Guildford was reported as one of the ten most congested towns and cities in the country, more congested than Glasgow, Leicester, Cardiff, Liverpool and Portsmouth. The research found that on average, Guildford commuters spent 29 hours in traffic per year, with congestion costing them £812.
At Accident Advice Helpline we have found that congestion is a major factor when it comes to whiplash accidents. The stopping and starting of vehicles on slow roads, can lead to carelessness and fatigue, meaning rear end shunts are a frequent occurrence.
While most whiplash injuries will heal by themselves in a few days or weeks with just rest, gentle exercise and painkillers, in some cases whiplash accidents in Guildford can lead to more serious and long lasting injuries. If you have suffered with whiplash in the Guildford area, and have received medical attention for your injuries, then you may be eligible to make a claim for accident compensation.
Call today to talk to Accident Advice Helpline about making a claim. Remember, we will need to have evidence of medical intervention in your whiplash case, so call us if you received medical treatment in an accident that was not your fault, and talk to us about putting a strong claim together for you.
Slips, trips and falls in Guildford
By far the most common cause of accidents we see here at Accident Advice Helpline are slips, trips and falls. In the workplace, almost 40 per cent of self-reported non-fatal injuries can be accounted for by just two different accident kinds
- Handling, lifting or carrying accidents (20 per cent)
- Or slip trip and fall accidents (18 per cent).
There are more than 110,000 cases of slip, trip and fall accidents at work every year, and if you add the number of slips, trips and falls in the home, or out in public, that’s an awful lot of people hurting themselves.
It’s probably reasonable to suggest that most among us who have a slip, trip or fall, do so because of our own carelessness or clumsiness. However, in instances where slips, trips and falls in Guildford were brought about because of the carelessness or negligence of someone else, probably have the grounds to make a claim. Any personal injury solicitor in Guildford would expect you to do so.
If you need to make a claim following an accident that was not your fault while you were out and about in Guildford, call Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to our friendly and empathetic helpline team today. Give us the details of your incident and injuries and we’ll tell you whether you have a claim. All our cases are handled on a no-win, no-fee* basis so you don’t have to worry about finding legal fees when you should be concentrating on your recovery. You could receive your pay-out faster than you think.
Work accident in Guildford
If you’ve had a work accident you may feel very unsure about making a claim against your employer. At Accident Advice Helpline we understand that you will want to protect your job, while not singling yourself out as a trouble maker. That’s fair enough. However, have you considered that your employer has a duty of care to protect your wellbeing, and that there are many health and safety guidelines to which your employer must adhere. If they have broken the rules, they have wilfully put you and your colleagues at risk.
You are not alone. In recent years over 609,000 workers are estimated to have sustained a non-fatal injury at work while in excess of 1.3 million workers suffer work related illnesses, but employers in the UK are required to have public liability insurance, and this means they are insured for instances when employees need to make a claim against them.
With this in mind, you need a law firm that knows employment law and accident law, who can fight your corner and make sure your employer is taken to task for their negligence, while ensuring your employment rights are maintained.
