The London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham makes up part of the area described as Inner London. It is unique in terms of being a London borough in as much as it has three top football clubs within its borders. They are Chelsea (Stamford Bridge), Fulham (Craven Cottage) and Queens Park Rangers (Loftus Road in Shepherds Bush).
For its youngsters, Hammersmith and Fulham has many good schools, but perhaps the two best-known are Saint Paul’s Girls’ School in Brook Green, and the Godolphin and Latymer School situated just off Hammersmith Broadway. Saint Pauls Girls School is particularly sought after. It is often ranked first in the national register and boasts of on average 50 per cent of its senior students being accepted into the Oxbridge universities.
The last national census (held in 2011) indicated that there were in excess of 182,000 people living here in the borough. With such a high headcount and all of the bustling activity that goes on, it’s hardly surprising that lots of accidents happen here every year.
If you’ve been injured in one of these accidents for which someone else was to blame, you may well be in search of a personal injury solicitor in Hammersmith and Fulham to help you with claiming personal injury compensation. But if you want to use one of the UK’s favourite injury claim law firms, why not look further afield and choose Accident Advice Helpline?

Whiplash accident in Hammersmith and Fulham
If you are involved in a whiplash accident in Hammersmith and Fulham that was caused by a third party, you may want to put in a claim for personal injury compensation. It is, after all, your moral and legal right.
As with any injury, proving that you have indeed sustained an injury, and that it was serious enough to need medical intervention, is of prime importance. So, when you experience the first signs of a whiplash injury, you should go and see your GP. What are the signs? They include:
- Pain and stiffness in the neck
- Lower back pain
- Pain in the shoulders
- Pain or a numbness in your hand or arm
- Bouts of dizziness
A whiplash injury can also affect your ability to concentrate. It can interfere with your memory and make you irritable and tired. In some people it also makes it difficult to go to sleep, and can cause interrupted sleep.
If you are diagnosed with whiplash, you will be advised to move your neck as much and as frequently as possible. This will be painful, so the doctor you see will also likely prescribe pain medication.
