Hillingdon is a sought-after suburban area within Greater London. At the last census, the population was recorded as being 273,936. In total, the borough of Hillingdon is split into 21 wards, and you can see a complete listing of these by following this link to Wikipedia.
Hillingdon borough contains more than 200 green spaces which total around 1,800 acres. They include large areas like Colne Valley Regional Park as well as smaller parks such as the Norman Leddy Memorial Gardens and Lake Farm Country Park.
The economy of the borough is large and diverse, containing operations from the airline to the food industries. Hillingdon is also where RAF Northolt is located, Northolt Junction being the former name of South Ruislip railway station after which the RAF base was originally named.
In such a highly populated, busy area of Greater London, accidents are a part of everyday life. In many instances, people are the innocent victims of injuries that are caused by others, and naturally, these victims want some sort of recompense. This is where Accident Advice Helpline can step in to help.
No matter what type of accident you have been involved in, or what sort of injury you’ve sustained, if you appoint us here at Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal injury solicitor in Hillingdon, we will be able to assist you with securing any compensation that you may be entitled to, as long as:
- Someone else was to blame for the accident that led to your injury
- You received medical attention for your injury
- The incident happened in the past three years
The reason behind the need to being given medical attention relates to proof of injury. It is possible you can get this retrospectively. The three-year constraint relates to the statute of limitations. It expires after three years, so the claim must be registered within three years of the accident taking place. There are a few exceptions to these rules, so if you’re unsure whether you qualify or not, have a chat to our friendly advisors and they’ll be pleased to help you find out more.
Road traffic accidents in Hillingdon
Western Avenue, or the A40 as it is otherwise known, is one of the busiest roads in Greater London and, unsurprisingly, it is the scene of many of the road traffic accidents in Hillingdon. Back in the 1990s, it was rerouted a little to the north of its original path in order to improve the flow of traffic around Hillingdon Circus. Nonetheless, accidents still happen.
If you have been hurt in an accident on the A40 and you are looking for a personal injury solicitor in Hillingdon to help you to register a claim for compensation, you might like to consider using a powerful, specialist law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.
We are not actually located in Hillingdon, but that doesn’t really matter. With our fully responsive website and our national helpline it’s easy to get in touch with us from anywhere in the UK which is why so many people use our services; that and the fact that we work on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
We also provide free help and advice. You can either get this by calling our helpline and chatting to one of our friendly advisors, or if you just want to get a broad idea of what’s involved with claiming compensation, browse through our website. Either way, why not contact us today?
Whiplash accident in Hillingdon
A whiplash accident in Hillingdon can take the form of a car crash, or any other sort of collision (with another person or an inanimate object like a wall) whereby your head is thrown backwards and forwards uncontrollably. When your neck movement goes beyond its normal travel path and the muscles, ligaments and tendons get overstretched, that is when a whiplash type injury develops.
The inflammation that occurs makes it very painful when you move your head and neck, so painful that you may have to take time off work. In severe cases of whiplash, the hospital or GP may fit you with a neck brace.
Whereas once-upon-a-time whiplash victims were told to rest their necks and keep them still, today’s school of thought is to move your neck as much and as often as you can. You will, of course, find this quite painful, which is why you will probably be prescribed pain medication.
Depending on the severity of the whiplash accident, symptoms can last anywhere from two to three weeks up to several months and, in the case of chronic whiplash, even years. It’s not fair that you should have to suffer for extended periods through no fault of your own, which is why we’re here to help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Acting as your personal injury solicitor in Hillingdon we will advise you to get as much proof together as possible. Photos are always useful if vehicles are involved and have been damaged, and witness statements will help too. The sooner you start putting together your claim after the injury the better, so get in touch with us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Hillingdon
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are often approached to help people to make claims following injuries caused by slips, trips and falls in Hillingdon. It’s not just people in Hillingdon who contact us of course; we help people from all over the UK.
The first thing that most injury victims want to know is how much compensation they might be entitled to. There is an easy way to get an idea, and that is to take what we refer to as our 30-second test. After answering a short series of simple questions, you will get an estimate indicating the amount of compensation you might be awarded. This is however just a guide.
Once you’ve taken this test, you can then think about what you want to do. If you don’t do anything, one of our advisors will call you back in a day or so just to check that you don’t have any queries. We will never put you under any pressure to register a claim. That is entirely your choice.
If you do want to proceed, we can walk you through the process. You’ll be surprised at just how easy it is. We are here when you need us, so call us when you’re ready.

The answer is simple; give Accident Advice Helpline a call. We can review what has happened to you, help you to decide who is in the wrong and whether or not you are likely to be entitled to personal injury compensation.
The odds are that if another employee or your employer was to blame for your accident, you could be owed money. Just how much you can find out by taking our 30-second test, or by having a chat with one of our advisors. With many years of experience, gained exclusively in the personal injury claim arena, no one has more knowledge and experience than we do.
The best thing of all is that our expertise is yours to share.

Just bear in mind that your call-provider will probably charge you for the call.
