If you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor in Smethwick because you would like to claim compensation for injuries received in an accident that was not your fault, but you can’t find the right one to help you, have you considered going national? Accident Advice Helpline is a national law firm with the perfect personal touch. Established in the year 2000, we have all the expertise you will need, regardless of the type of accident or injuries you have suffered, and we have friendly and helpful advisers who will be able to advise you on the process for claiming your compensation.
Located in the West Midlands, Smethwick is in the Sandwell Metropolitan Borough, and was historically in Staffordshire. It is only four miles west of Birmingham city centre, and it borders West Bromwich and Oldbury to the north and west and the Birmingham districts of Handsworth, Winson Green, Harborne, Edgbaston and Quinton to the south and east. Smethwick has a population of 14,146 according to the 2011 UK Census.
If you would like to make a claim for compensation, there are three basic criteria to watch out for. These are:
- You must have had an accident during the last three years
- You must have been injured in the accident and treated for those injuries by a medical professional
- You must not have been at fault for the accident.
If you meet these criteria and would like to find out more about the types of accident claims Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with, get in touch with us on the numbers below. Don’t forget we offer no-win, no-fee* to all of our clients as standard, so you won’t have to use up all of your savings to make a claim.
Road traffic accidents in Smethwick
According to one media report, Smethwick has the worst drivers in Britain because it has the highest rate of banned motorists compared to elsewhere in the UK. Data compiled a few years ago by a motoring magazine, suggests that 160 of the 20,194 motorists in the town were disqualified, a figure of approximately 0.77 per cent overall, with close neighbours West Bromwich the second worst drivers.
Why would Smethwick have the most dangerous drivers? The report suggests this can be down to a number of factors, including: the number of speed cameras meaning dangerous drivers come to the attention of the police more often; police crackdowns on motoring offences; and general recklessness by motorists.
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault and you would like to claim compensation for your injuries, you will be perfectly entitled to do so. Call Accident Advice Helpline today and talk us through the accident and who was involved, and give us details about your injuries and treatment and we will be able to put together a claim for you. Remember you only have three years to make your claim, so don’t delay. If you need to discuss road traffic accidents in Smethwick, we’re here for you. Call us now.
Whiplash accidents in Smethwick
Birmingham and the surrounding area has garnered itself a bit of a reputation as the whiplash capital of the UK. The city of Birmingham has the highest car insurance premiums in the UK for this reason. Of the ten worst postcodes for car insurance, most were in Birmingham, and included Smethwick in fourth place. It is also claimed that Birmingham has the highest number of bogus whiplash claims too.
This concerns us, not because we fear bogus whiplash claims, because we’ll sniff them out, but because we worry that such assertions will be off-putting to people who genuinely have been injured and want to make claims for whiplash accidents in Smethwick.
Given the reports of dangerous driving in the area, it stands to reason that many people are genuinely injured in road accidents. If you’ve suffered whiplash within the last three years and you would like to make a claim, please don’t be put off. We will stand with you. All we need is the medical evidence to back up your claim. Call us today and ask about no-win, no-fee*. Making a whiplash claim will be cheaper than you think, and if you have a genuine reason to claim, we will work hard to get you the money you deserve for your injuries. Call now.

Work accident in Smethwick
Every year, here at Accident Advice Helpline, we see dozens of fatal accidents at work, and hundreds of thousands of non-fatal injuries. This means that millions of working days are lost at huge cost to the economy. While some employers hold their hands up and are quick to take responsibility, we know that making a claim against an employer can be tricky, and many of our clients are not sure about pursuing a claim against an employer that may result in the termination of their own employment.
Fatal injuries at work are thankfully rare events but they do happen in Smethwick and elsewhere. Employers that take short cuts in health and safety need to be brought to justice, so if you have been the victim of an accident at work, and you are having doubts, call us and ask us – in confidentiality – about the process of making a claim. The main advantage of choosing Accident Advice Helpline as your law firm, rather than a personal injury solicitor in Smethwick is that we have all the expertise in employment law you will need, in combination with personal injury experience. We’ll protect your right and win your claim.
All the expertise you need from Accident Advice Helpline
No-win, no-fee* is the perfect way to make a personal injury claim following an accident that was not your fault. If you’re worried about the cost, and the likely success of your claim, talk to us before you go anywhere else. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 free from your landline, or from a mobile call 0333 500 0993.
