Milton is a small village in the County of Cambridgeshire, home to the Cambridge Science Park, where many science and technology businesses are based. A former site of gravel pits, Milton Country Park is now a large wildlife haven and contains over two miles of paths, a sensory garden and a sustainable garden, and offers a wheelchair loan scheme to allow as many people as possible to experience the site.
Milton Brewery was formed in 1999, and there are ongoing discussions about the creation of an international standard eight lane rowing lake. The East of England headquarters of the UK Footgolf Association is also based in the town, on the site of the former Milton Park Golf Course.
Despite its status as a small, sleepy suburb, Milton is like any other part of the UK in the sense that accidents can and do happen. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping innocent accident victims to make successful claims for compensation for over 16 years, and in that time, we’ve amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience that we’ll put to good use helping you too.
Road traffic accidents in Milton
While Milton is a small town with a relatively low population, it is interconnected to the rest of the county of Cambridgeshire by busy ‘A’ roads and a cycle bridge. The county has seen road traffic accident numbers fall sharply in recent years, from 2297 in 2011 to 1847 in 2015. However, despite this, the numbers of serious injuries and fatalities have not fallen proportionally.
Cambridgeshire County Council is in the process of implementing a number of transport projects which endeavour to improve the safety on the roads. Other road safety campaigns continue to improve public awareness of safe driving and cycling. However, with the sheer volume of traffic, accidents can and do happen from time to time, even to the most careful, considerate of drivers.
These kinds of accidents can result in a whole range of ailments, from minor cuts and bruising to more serious issues such as broken bones or head injuries. Victims can find themselves suffering chronic pain as well as psychological damage, and may need to take extended time off work, or lose the ability to take part in social activities.
If you were injured in an accident such as this, which happened within the last three years, don’t waste hours searching for a suitable personal injury solicitor in Milton. Simply contact Accident Advice Helpline and we’ll ensure you get the very best legal representation in the business. As one of the UK’s largest law firms, we can help you wherever you’re based and, because we handle most claims entirely over the phone, you probably won’t even have to go to court.
Whiplash accident in Milton
One of the most common injuries to be sustained in car crashes is whiplash, a condition that is caused when the head and neck are jerked forward and back in a crash. This causes the muscles and ligaments of the neck to become overextended and can occur in even low speed shunts, due to the seat belt locking mechanism of most modern cars exerting an opposing force on the body.
A whiplash accident in Milton can lead to symptoms including headaches, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain and aches in the shoulders and neck. It can lead to limited movement, or unexpected pains that occur randomly.
While symptoms usually take a day or two to appear then subside quickly, in many cases, they can last for weeks, months or even, in one in five cases, for a year or more. There is little suitable treatment for whiplash due to the nature of the injury; doctors usually advise keeping the neck mobile and against the idea of using a brace, but living with the symptoms can interfere with other activities.
If you sustained a whiplash injury, you may have had to take time off work, leading to a loss of earnings. You may have to pay for prescriptions, or find the money for taxis to and from appointments. An award of personal injury compensation can help you to recover some or all of the losses you’ve incurred as a result of your accident.
However, finding the right personal injury solicitor in Milton can be tricky; there may not be any suitable ones in the area and it can be difficult to know which solicitors have the experience you need. Take the hard work out of claiming by contacting Accident Advice Helpline; we have all the experience required to help you make a successful claim.
Slips, trips and falls in Milton
Slips, trips and falls in Milton might seem like minor accidents in the great scheme of things, and that can often put people off making a claim for compensation, as they feel their injuries aren’t serious enough to warrant a claim. However, injuries sustained in slips, trips and falls can still be painful and debilitating. Injuries such as broken ankles, fractured wrists and facial scarring can have a negative psychological impact and could impede your ability to work, take part in social activities and can even have an effect on your relationships.
While many falls are simply bad luck and could not have been prevented, in a few cases, someone else is actually at fault. For instance, if you tripped over a loose paving slab which you hadn’t noticed but which you later found out had been there for some time, you could have a claim. Equally, if you tripped over loose cabling at work and your employer had failed to adequately risk assess the hazard, they could be held responsible.
A claim for compensation can reimburse you for your pain and suffering, as well as helping you to recover the costs associated with the accident. Don’t sit wondering if your injury was serious enough to warrant a claim; call our helpline and talk to our friendly, professional advisers who will give you all the advice and support you need in order to make a claim.
Work accident in Milton
Milton is a small town with a local economy that is largely based around amenities and services. It is also home to a number of science and technology related businesses, as well as various retail outlets for local shoppers. No matter where you work in Milton, there is always a risk that you could be injured at work, even in the safest of industries.
Every employer in Milton has a responsibility under health and safety law to look after their employees. That duty of care requires them to take all reasonable precautions to ensure their employees don’t come to harm in the line of their work.
In practical terms, this commonly means conducting adequate risk assessments and removing or reducing any hazards identified, as well as using proper signage as warnings. It also means providing the right training, maintaining and repairing or replacing any equipment once it is outdated or fault and providing adequate personal protective equipment and clothing. If they fail to do this and you become hurt, you shouldn’t suffer in silence.
If you were injured in an accident at work and you think someone else was to blame, you could make a claim for compensation. You could search for a personal injury solicitor in Milton but, as a small town, you might not find someone who is adequately experienced enough to help you with you case. Luckily, here at Accident Advice Helpline we can represent you wherever you are in the country; call us today to find out how.
