Originally situated in Cheshire, the town of Birkenhead now lies within the boundaries of Wirral, in Merseyside. Close to Liverpool, Birkenhead is connected to the City by Queensway and Kingsway Tunnels. Whilst Birkenhead shares many amenities with Liverpool, the town has a vast array of local attractions too.
The Museum of Liverpool, the Tate Liverpool and the leisure complex known as the Albert Docks are all easily accessible from Birkenhead and residents regularly make the trip to see travelling exhibitions, art shows and cultural events.
Known for its music scene, there are numerous concerts and gigs held in Birkenhead and Liverpool. Whilst local residents often attend, these events also attract people from all over the country. As Liverpool is one of the most popular cities in England, Birkenhead also receives a significant number of tourists. The short distance between the two areas means that visitors to the City regularly travel to Birkenhead as well.
Due to undergo significant redevelopment, the landscape of Birkenhead could change in upcoming years. In addition to numerous residential buildings being construction, new leisure and entertainment venues are set to be built at the former site of Bidston Dock. With many people already keen to visit the town, the planned regeneration could see Birkenhead becoming even more popular.
On the whole, residents of Birkenhead rate the town highly and many people take part in community-led events. As in most towns in the UK, however, accidents may occur on occasion. Unfortunately, it only takes a few seconds for an accident to occur and, sometimes, it isn’t always possible to avoid being hurt.

Road traffic accidents in Birkenhead
Although Birkenhead is located in the north west of England, it has good transport links to other parts of the country. With the M53 running past the town, there is a direct route to Birkenhead from Chester and the surrounding areas. As well as this, there are various ‘A’ roads serving Birkenhead. Whilst these are convenient for motorists, more accidents do tend to occur on these types of roads.
In fact, it’s been estimated that road traffic accidents are eight times more likely to occur on ‘A’ roads than motorways. Whilst no-one wants accidents to occur, it’s easy for drivers to make an error or become distracted when they’re behind the wheel. When this happens, it’s no surprise that people can end up getting hurt.
If you’ve been injured because of a reckless driver, you could be owed financial compensation. Of course, you won’t want to have to deal with making a claim alone after road traffic accidents in Birkenhead and that’s where we come in.

Whiplash accident in Birkenhead
When people suffer a whiplash injury, they tend to play it down. In the past, there have been some negative connotations associated with the injury and people tend to assume that they won’t receive much sympathy.
This means that people with genuine whiplash injuries can be overlooked and they may miss out on the help they need. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re determined to make sure that this doesn’t happen.
Whilst whiplash may not be considered a serious injury by some, prolonged pain, neck spasms and muscle stiffness can certainly get you down.

As well as proving who was responsible for your injury, we’ll present the relevant evidence and make sure that justice is done. Although we can’t provide a magic remedy for whiplash, we can ensure that you’re properly compensated.
Why wait? Call us at Accident Advice Helpline now and get the compensation you deserve.
Slips, trips and falls in Birkenhead
On the banks of the River Mersey, Birkenhead offers picturesque views of the water and the City beyond. For tourists and residents alike, walking is a great way to explore the town. Whether you’re wondering through historic Birkenhead Park, window-shopping in the Pyramids Centre or simply walking to and from walk, you’ll probably spend a significant amount of time on foot.
When walking around towns and cities, however, we expect them to be safe. The strict health and safety laws in the UK mean that public spaces are normally well-kept and are free from hazards. Fortunately, this means that it’s rare for people to be seriously hurt when they’re walking around or travelling on foot.
Of course, it isn’t always possible to avoid an accident occurring. Just one chipping paving stone, wet floor or fallen branch could be enough to cause slips, trips and falls in Birkenhead. When these types of accidents happen, it may be tempting to contact a personal injury solicitor in Birkenhead straight away.
Although a local solicitor may be able to help you, there’s no guarantee that they’ll be able to provide the specialist expertise that you need. Rather than spending time searching for a law firm, why not contact us directly?
As specialists in personal injury law, we’re well-equipped to help you obtain compensation after a slip, trip or fall. If you’ve suffered this type of accident whilst at work, out shopping or even walking along the high street, we can help.
We’ll find out who is liable for your injury and, with your permission, we’ll get your claim started as quickly as possible. Get help with your claim today and contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Work accident in Birkenhead
Known for its shipbuilding industry, there are still a significant number of maritime businesses based in the area. Whilst a considerable number of local residents still work in the industry, employment is Birkenhead has diversified somewhat.
With most employees working in professional, technical or managerial positions, there are a large number of office-based roles in the area. Over a third of employees do work in plant processing, skilled trades and elementary occupations, however.
Whilst these roles aren’t necessarily more dangerous than office-based positions, there may be different risks associated with these types of jobs. An office-based employee may be more at risk of slips, trips and falls whilst an electrician may be more at risk of suffering a machinery-related injury, for example.
In order to provide safe working environments, it’s vital that employers identify industry-specific risks. By understanding the potential dangers of a job role, they can take action to avoid a work accident in Birkenhead.
From time-to-time, however, employers may fail to do this and, as a result, employees may get hurt. If their injury required medical attention, they could be entitled to financial compensation for the harm they’ve suffered, and we can help them get it.
To find out more about making a claim after a work injury, contact our personal injury advisers now.
