The large Berkshire town of Slough is situated on the western fringes of the Greater London Urban Area, between the Thames Valley and London. The major intersection of the M4, M40 and M25 motorways are close by, providing excellent road links both into the capital, and to the rest of the UK.
Historically, Slough’s economy was dominated by the manufacturing industry, but over the last two decades there has been a major shift in focus. Modern day Slough has given itself over to an information-based economy, so the factories and warehouses of old fashioned Slough have been replaced with shiny new office buildings.
Slough is now a world-renowned trading centre, with the highest concentration of global corporate headquarters outside London. The Slough Trading Estate alone houses in excess of 400 businesses, and has the accolade of being the largest industrial estate in single private ownership in Europe. Slough has been named as the ‘best place’ to work and live in the UK, and with the second highest gross value added per worker of cities in UK, the outlook is optimistic for the town.
Despite the positive economic outlook, we know there are people looking for a personal injury solicitor in Slough right now, because they have been injured in an accident. From incidents on the road to accidents at work, there is never a good time to suffer an unexpected injury. This type of situation can seriously dent the finances of any family, especially when the main wage-earner is no longer able to work.
If this situation sounds painfully familiar, we can help. Our highly skilled legal professionals can help you build a powerful case against the responsible party, and can give your claim for compensation the very best chance of success. Call us today, and find out how we can put things right after your unexpected accident.
Road traffic accident in Slough
With a great deal of traffic on the roads around the town, it is no surprise that the occasional accident does happen. In fact, the A4 in Slough was identified as one of the most dangerous roads in the UK, following a spate of serious and fatal accidents over previous years. Bath Road and Wellington Street can become incredibly congested during rush hour, and if the M4 becomes slow, the knock-on effect throughout the town is dire.
One of the most at-risk groups in Slough is undoubtedly children and young people. The local council is spearheading a number of road safety campaigns to reduce the incidence of road casualties involving under 16’s, and is investing £4.3 million in making the town less congested, less polluted and safer for everyone. Despite this, accidents can still happen from time to time, leaving innocent people injured and dealing with the impact of this on their lives.

Whiplash accident in Slough
With all the congestion experienced around Slough, it’s little surprise that many accidents in the town happen at low speeds. Although these types of accidents rarely lead to life threatening injuries, they can frequently cause the most common injury suffered in car accidents, which we know as whiplash.
Most people have heard of whiplash, but few will realise how painful and debilitating it can be, until it happens to them. Although whiplash usually goes away on its own, it can hang around for several weeks, months or even years. If the accident wasn’t your fault, why should you suffer for someone else’s mistake? Did you know that you may be able to claim compensation?
Do not make the assumption that whiplash isn’t bed enough to be bothered with claiming for. Symptoms can be painful and can last a long time, so don’t miss out on your chance to claim. We have been successfully handling claims for compensation for whiplash for more than 16 years, so call our friendly advisors today.
Work accident in Slough
Slough is in an ideal location for major brands to base their national or regional headquarters, and many have done just that. There’s easy access to the M4 motorway, the rail network and the international air hub of Heathrow. From confectionery companies to car manufacturers and high flying financial brands, many have located their HQ’s in Slough, offering employment to the local population.
All in all, Slough’s thriving businesses contribute around £2.5 billion to the UK’s economy each year. The private employment sector predominates, yet at least 13,000 people are employed in the public sector within the town.
Whether you work in the private or public sector, having robust health and safety policies is crucial. Public sector organisations like local and national government have a duty of care towards their employees in the same way as private companies. The rules apply to full-time, part-time and casual staff; everyone deserves to feel safe at work.
The most common work-related non-fatal injuries in both the public and private sector are manual handling injuries. Yet, with a little care and planning, this type of injury does not have to happen. Employers should thoroughly assess all lifting and handling tasks, and then provide the necessary training and equipment to carry them out safely.

We understand that the thought of claiming against your employer can be daunting, but you needn’t worry because we’re here to help.
