Worthing is a classic British seaside resort on the south coast in West Sussex. Found at the bottom of the South Downs, it is positioned just 10 miles west of Brighton and 18 miles from Chichester. As a component of the complex of Brighton, Worthing and Littlehampton, it forms the 15th largest populous urban area here in the UK.
As an urban area and a sought after tourist resort, Worthing has something of everything for residents and visitors alike. It boasts a large and active service industry with a solid nucleus in the financial services sector. Entertainment-wise it has three theatres plus the Dome cinema, one of the
Worthing has its fair share of folklore including the Midsummer tree, an ancient oak believed to be around 300 years-old. Legend has it that in the evening, skeletons would arise from beneath the tree to dance around it until dawn broke. When the light of a new day spilled onto the Earth, it was the signal for the skeletons to return from whence they came, back into the soil beneath the tree.
The old oak was at one stage doomed for removal as part of a redevelopment plan, but the plans were revised in 2006, and since then, the tree still stands and hosts meetings every Midsummer’s Eve.

Whiplash accident in Worthing
It could be that you have been injured in a whiplash accident in Worthing. It is one of the most common injuries that RTA victims suffer, although it’s not just car crash victims. Anyone who is involved in an accident, whereby a sharp jolt causes the head and neck to uncontrollably jerk backwards and forwards in a whiplash type action, can suffer this form of damage.
A whiplash injury often manifests itself the day after the accident. This is because when you go to sleep, the damage to the neck muscles and ligaments develops, exacerbated by the lack of movement. The damage can last anywhere from two weeks to several months; it is important to go and see your doctor to get personal advice about your recovery.
Not only will your doctor be able to offer advice and treatment, they will also produce a medical report which you will need as proof of your injury if you do wish to proceed with a compensation claim. If you call our helpline here at Accident Advice Helpline, we will be able to give you all in the information you need about starting a claim. Call us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Worthing

These types of accident can happen anywhere; in the home, while out shopping in the High Street, or in shopping malls like the Royal Arcade or the Guildbourne Centre, or in your place of work. As with any accident that causes injury you wish to claim compensation for, the blame must be attributed tp someone other than the injury victim.
Any injury you suffer must be serious enough to warrant medical treatment. If you are uncertain whether your injury can be claimed for, for whatever reason, why not get in touch with our helpline and chat to one of our friendly advisors? Claims should be instigated as soon after the accident as possible. Technically you have up to three years to make your claim, but our advice is the sooner the better, so please get in touch today.
Work accident in Worthing
Your place of work can also present hazards that can cause injury. Some of these hazards are not obvious (trailing leads across office floors, or poorly set-up work stations) whereas others, in factory or warehouse situations, are more blatant and may need special training to avoid.
A typical work accident in Worthing could be a repetitive strain injury, or it might be caused by a potentially dangerous machine that wasn’t fitted with appropriate guard equipment. Whatever the nature of the accident or how it came about, if someone other than you was to blame, you will be entitled to compensation.
To have a valid claim for a workplace accident you will need to have received medical treatment for your injury, and the incident needs to have taken place in the past three years. The blame for the incident must also lie (at least partly) with a third party.
