The town of Holywell is located in Flintshire in Wales, to the west of the River Dee estuary. It is a market town which owes its name to the holy well found by St Winefride’s chapel. Steeped in Welsh legend and listed as one of Wales’s seven wonders, the well is supposedly where Saint Winefride was beheaded by Caradog. Advertised as the “Lourdes of Wales”, pilgrims travel here from all over the world to visit the well.
The town grew in size thanks to the lead and copper mining industries for which the regions was famous. This heritage is attested to today by the number of conserved mills and other buildings still evident in the town and its outskirts. Holywell is the only Welsh town to have seven ancient monuments to its credit, one of which is St James Parish Church, a Grade ll listed building, some of which dates back to the 14th century.
The nearby Greenfield Valley is another visitor attraction, known for its wide variety of birdlife and species of butterflies. It is also home to Greenfield Valley Heritage Park which, with its abundance of farmyard animals, provides a great day out for families.
Although Holywell may give the impression of being a quiet Welsh heritage town, accidents do happen here nonetheless. When they do, innocent injury victims often turn to Accident Advice Helpline to ask us to act as their personal injury solicitor in Holywell.
With our fully responsive website, our 30-second test, and our national helpline, working with us is as convenient as using any local solicitor. In many ways, we can do better, as we have more experience in the injury claim arena than most local law firms. Call us today to find out more.
Road traffic accidents in Holywell
Road traffic accidents don’t only happen on major trunk roads and motorways. Although these may be more talked about and newsworthy, many of the road traffic accidents in Holywell happen on roads like the B5121, the road that links Holywell to nearby Greenfield.
Driving down smaller roads often needs more concentration and driver awareness. You never know what lies around the next bend, especially where there are high hedgerows obscuring your view. It’s all too easy to meet a car speeding in the other direction or to come up behind a slow-moving farm vehicle unexpectedly.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident where you believe the other driver to have been driving dangerously or neglectfully, you could be entitled to financial compensation. If you appoint Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal injury solicitor in Holywell, we will efficiently establish what you could be owed and get to work to secure that money on your behalf.
Some people think they will not be able to afford a personal injury solicitor’s fees, but that needn’t be a worry when you work with our experienced team. We offer a no-win, no-fee* service, which means that if your claim fails, you don’t have to pay our legal fees. We are committed to offering professional legal representation to all accident victims, no matter what their financial circumstances.

Whiplash accident in Holywell
If you have a whiplash accident in Holywell, it could put you out of action for quite a while. Not only can it make everyday chores more challenging to carry out, but it can also mean that you can’t go to work until you’ve fully recovered. In some cases, this can mean a significant loss of earnings.
Whiplash is one of those injuries that you can fall foul of without having done anything wrong. The classic whiplash injury is one where you might simply be sat in a parked car when another car rear-ends you. You are not expecting anything, so when the impact happens it catches you completely unaware and your head snaps backwards and forwards before you even know what has happened.
The force of the impact makes your head travel beyond its normal limits, and this causes the ligaments, muscles and tendons in the neck to overstretch. They then become inflamed, which results in limited neck mobility and pain every time you try and turn your head.
There is no magic cure for a whiplash injury. It will disappear in time, but you can speed the process by exercising your neck as much as possible. You may be prescribed pain medication to help with the discomfort, but not much else is available to improve your situation. As with any injury you wish to claim compensation for, you will need a formal medical diagnosis.
We here at Accident Advice Helpline have handled thousands of whiplash injury claims since we first began helping injury victims back in the year 2000. If you ask us to act as your personal injury solicitor in Holywell, we will bring the full weight of our knowledge and expertise to bear on your claim too.
All you have to do to secure our services is to pick up your phone and call our helpline today.
Slips, trips and falls in Holywell
One of the most dangerous injuries that people sustain in slips, trips and falls in Holywell are head injuries. The problem with head injuries like concussion is that they are not always immediately apparent.
You can have a nasty fall, be unconscious for a few seconds afterwards and then awake feeling fine. However, sometimes there is a small bleed which, with time, can become quite serious. If left unchecked, these types of injuries could even prove to be fatal. If you have hit your head or become unconscious, even if it’s only for seconds, you should go to A&E and get yourself checked out.
Slips, trips and falls can also lead to fractures, particularly in the very young or elderly. These can have long healing periods, causing huge inconvenience to the victim. When someone else was to blame for your fall, why should you suffer the pain and nuisance of dealing with your injury? Accident Advice Helpline can help you secure compensation to make recovery just a little bit easier.
If you trip over your own feet, you won’t be able to claim compensation, as it was just an unfortunate accident. If someone else was to blame, however, you could well be entitled to a financial payment. We can help you discover if you are eligible, and will do all the hard work for you to ensure you are adequately compensated for the suffering you have endured.
To choose Accident Advice Helpline as your injury solicitor in Holywell, just give us a call, and we will be happy to help.
Work accident in Holywell

Of course, as with any injury you want to claim compensation for, someone else has to be a least partially responsible for the accident or incident.
