Located in Dorset in the south west of England, Weymouth is a seaside town situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey looking out on the English Channel. The town is 7 miles south of Dorchester and 5 miles north of the Isle of Portland, and is commutable to Bournemouth and Poole. Weymouth has a population of 54, 539 according to the 2011 Census, slightly up from the 2001 Census that put the population at 53,140.
With so many people living, working and visiting the local area, the occasional accident is practically inevitable. When you’re involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s not right that you should have to face the consequences alone. We are here to help innocent victims claim compensation for their injuries, which can go a long way towards covering loss or earnings, prescription charges and other accident related expenses. Call us today to find out more.
Road traffic accidents in Weymouth
There has been some concern in recent years about the rising number of death and serious injuries that occur on roads in Dorset. One road specifically singled out for attention is the A353, which according to a report released by the Road Safety Foundation, is the highest risk road in the region. Over just a two year period, there were 12 fatal or serious crashes, and 58 per cent of those involved motorcyclists. Over the last year, the total number killed on Dorset’s roads in total was 28.
The most dangerous stretch of the road runs through Littlemoor, Preston, Osmington and Poxwell, up to the Warmwell Roundabout, and while many road safety measures have been introduced, Dorset County Council requires further funding so it can undertake additional work.
Discussion about why the road might be so dangerous has suggested that it is to do with infrastructure, or the fact that there are straight areas followed by some nasty bends, but of course, at Accident Advice Helpline we know that the cause of many accidents is down to driver error, and a miscalculation of road conditions combined with excessive speed.
Bad drivers are a nightmare for other road users. If you’ve been involved in road traffic accidents in Weymouth that were not your fault, and you would like to make a claim for your injuries, call Accident Advice Helpline today. Talk us through what happened and the injuries you received, and we’ll be happy to advise you on what steps to take to make a claim. If you’re interested in no-win, no-fee*, call us right now.
Whiplash accidents in Weymouth
Many claims that we pursue on behalf of our clients in the Weymouth area include whiplash, and we have found that the most common reason for whiplash accidents is sideways, or rear-end shunts, in slow moving traffic. While a Dorset scheme designed to cut road congestion in Weymouth and Dorchester has made real progress, particularly by encouraging cycling and public transport, there may still be instances where you have been involved in a road accident in slow-moving traffic and received whiplash injuries.
Whiplash is caused by the head whipping forwards and back, or backwards then forwards, or even side to side, thereby extending the muscles and tendons and causing a strain or sprain. In most cases whiplash can be treated with rest, gentle exercise and painkillers. However, if you have suffered whiplash injuries that required medical attention and you would like to make a claim, by all means call us up here at Accident Advice Helpline and ask about doing so.
You may feel that making a whiplash claim is risky, but remember unlike many a personal injury solicitor in Weymouth, we won’t charge you a fortune up front to take on your case, thereby risking your savings. We offer you no-won, no-fee* for a low risk change to win your compensation. Call us today and ask about no-win, no-fee* for your whiplash injuries.
Slips, trips and falls in Weymouth
As Weymouth is a popular tourist resort located on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, its economy depends on the harbour and visitor attractions. The Coastline is an important site for geology and landforms. If you visit Weymouth Harbour you’ll notice cross-channel ferries, pleasure boats and private yachts. There’s plenty to do in the area and you’ll have a great time if you visit.
If you’ve suffered injuries during a visit, following slips, trip and falls in Weymouth, you may feel dubious about making a claim for compensation. However, at Accident Advice Helpline, we like to remind people, that if they have been involved in accidents that were not their fault and they suffered injuries, why should they suffer in silence? Far better to make a claim and feel better when you receive the compensation.
This is particularly the case if you had an injury in a public place, a tourist attraction, or on business premises. You may only have suffered minor injuries, but the next person who is hurt may be injured more severely. It is worth drawing attention to what happened to you. And claiming what is due is your right.
For an informal chat about making a claim following a slip, trip or fall, contact us today.
Work accident in Weymouth
If you have been injured in a work accident in Weymouth, you may be worrying about whether to make a claim against your employer or not. It can be a tough call deciding whether to risk your job, by putting your head above the parapet.
However, the number of self-reported non-fatal injuries to workers can make scary reading, with 40 per cent of all non-fatal accidents at work being attributed to either handling, lifting or carrying, or slip, trip or fall accidents.
Given that all employers have a responsibility for their employees, and must abide by health and safety law, it stands to reason that any breech in workplace safety is a serious issue, and we would encourage you as an employee to report the incident, and make a claim for compensation.
For a confidential chat about making a claim for compensation after a workplace accident, please call us today.
