    Hartlepool is a town in County Durham, in the north east of England, lying on the North Sea coast, and commutable to both Middlesbrough and Sunderland. Originally founded around a monastery, the town grew to include a harbour, and good railway links to facilitate the movement of coal in the area. It was renowned for its industry and shipbuilding but this declined during most of the twentieth century. Major investment projects and redevelopment have recently improved the town’s prospects.

    Road traffic accidents in Hartlepool

    One of the roads most renowned for being dangerous in Hartlepool is the A689. There have been numerous accidents over the years on the stretch between Hartlepool town centre and Newton Bewley, including several fatalities, and a number of serious injuries to a variety of road users, including pedestrians.

    Traffic cameras monitor the road in an aim to reduce the number of crashes and casualties that occur. Part of the problem is the speed of cars and other road users, but the jumping of red traffic lights, and unobservant pedestrians walking into the road without looking are also problematic.

    If you have been involved in any road traffic accidents in Hartlepool that were not your fault, talk to us here at Accident Advice Helpline about pursuing a claim for compensation. As long as the accident occurred during the last three years and you were treated for your injuries, we should be able to help you claim. For more information, get in touch with us today.

    Whiplash accidents in Hartlepool

    Accident Advice Helpline believes that easing congestion is the single biggest measure that could be employed to reduce the number of people hurt in road accidents every year. Of course, altering the infrastructure of Britain’s road is an expensive and time consuming business, but doing so can reap dividends.

    A new £18 million bypass for example, could be built to divert traffic around a picturesque village and create a third main route into Hartlepool from the A19, and this would relieve pressure and congestion from the A689 and A179. Such improvements would minimise the risk of accidents on the A19 trunk road, including whiplash accidents in Hartlepool.

    One of the main problems with congestion in our towns and cities, is that it causes motorists to become increasingly impatient and frustrated, and this affects how they drive. The constant stopping and starting in traffic can wear drivers down, and this is when people become careless, aggressive or downright negligent. Predictably, this results in traffic accidents.

    If you’ve been injured in a rear end shunt, because the driver behind you wasn’t concentrating, and you received whiplash injuries, then you are entitled to make a claim for your injuries. Whiplash can vary in its severity, and of course, in many instances it can be treated at home with rest, gentle exercise and painkillers. If your injuries were more severe and needed medical treatment, then talk to us about making a claim and getting the compensation you deserve. Call now!

    Slips, trips and falls in Hartlepool

    The most common accident claims that we have to deal with at Accident Advice Helpline include slips, trips and falls. Over the years the HSE has developed a number of interactive tools aimed at helping those working in low-risk offices and shops, including charity shops. Everyone who comes into contact with the public needs to understand what they have to do to assess and control risks in the workplace and comply with the UK’s health and safety laws. Any business with more than five employees needs to risk assess on a regular basis, to keep both their employees and the public safe.

    If you have had an accident while out and about in public and the accident was not your fault, you may consider that a slip, trip or fall is not something that you should bother to make a claim for. If the accident was due to the carelessness or negligence of someone else, or a business’s fault, then you are entitled to make a claim.

    This is particularly true where your accident and the resulting injuries have left you out of pocket or in pain, or where your life has been turned upside down. For more information about making a claim after slips, trips and falls in Hartlepool, get in touch with us here at Accident Advice Helpline and talk us through what happened. We’ll be able to advise you about whether you can make a claim for your injuries, and give you an estimate of how much you could receive. Call us today.
