Chadderton in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham in Greater Manchester is a former manorial township. Historically it was a farming town but during the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian era, the rise of textile manufacturing brought about an urbanisation there. Over 50 cotton mills were built there.
Since the decline of the textile industries, the town’s economy shifted to light industry, aerospace, warehousing and distribution and retail. There are many landmarks in Chadderton, including Chadderton Town Hall, Foxdenton Hall, the Chadderton War Memorial and Chadderton Hall Park.
Chadderton is a relatively affluent area with a growing population. Like any other popular area, accidents unfortunately happen there every day. If you were injured in an accident within the last three years that was someone else’s fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the most well-recognised and reputable names in the field of personal injury compensation. Our Patron is well-loved TV personality and consumer rights champion, Dame Esther Rantzen.

Road traffic accidents in Chadderton
Chadderton is in Oldham, a relatively small borough of Greater Manchester. Nevertheless, the area has had great success in reducing the numbers of road traffic casualties over the years. In 2011, overall casualties stood at 664, but these had fallen to 406 in 2015. Fatalities fell from 9 to 3 over the same timeframe.
Part of this success can be attributed to road safety measures introduced by Oldham council, but unfortunately, accidents still happen. Every road user is responsible for making the roads safe, but no matter careful and considerate you are, you still have to contend with other drivers who may not be so careful.
The leading causes of road traffic accidents in Chadderton and around the UK are speeding, being distracted while driving or driving under the influence of drink or drugs. If you were injured in an accident like this, you might have sustained serious injuries that meant time off work to recover and a loss of earnings to boot.
If your accident took place within the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for compensation that could help you to recover your lost earnings. A personal injury solicitor in Chadderton could help you to make your claim, but solicitors can be costly and this could put you off.
That’s why Accident Advice Helpline offers a 100% no-win, no-fee* guarantee. We’ll give you advice, support and specialist representation at no upfront cost. Call us today to find out more.
Whiplash accident in Chadderton
Whiplash is an injury that comes with a certain degree of stigma and baggage. No one wants to think they’ll be lumped in with that perception if they make such an injury claim, but whiplash is a real, and often painful, condition. Recent research by APIL (the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) looked into why whiplash might seem more prevalent in the UK.
According to the World Bank, the UK has 79 percent more vehicles on the roads than the EU average. That means more congestion and possible more low-speed accidents. Whiplash is often sustained in slow, rear-end shunts rather than high-speed collisions, due to the way the neck is jolted forward and back.
Symptoms of whiplash include muscle pain, spasms, pins and needles in the arms, fatigue, headaches and dizziness. Most people report that their symptoms clear up quickly, but up to 1 in 5 people have symptoms that last a year or more.
If you were injured in a whiplash accident in Chadderton, you might have had other costs on top of lost earnings, such as medical bills (especially physiotherapy), travel expenses to and from GP or hospital appointments, prescription charges and more.
A claim for compensation could help you to recover some or all of those costs, and while you can certainly use a personal injury solicitor in Chadderton to help you make your claim, why not rely on one of the most trusted sources in the field of personal injury claims?

We’ve already helped thousands of innocent accident victims to make successful claims, and we can help you too; talk to our advisers today to find out how we can help.
Slips, trips and falls in Chadderton
The majority of slips, trips and falls in Chadderton are minor in nature. Most people are lucky enough to experience no more than a bump to their pride, and are able to brush themselves off and carry on. However, sometimes these accidents are more serious, resulting in injuries to the ankle, knee or back, and can include fractured or broken bones.
While such accidents are rare, and usually unavoidable, they do happen; and sometimes they are caused by someone else. If, for example, there was a liquid spill on a polished floor and the responsible person knew, but failed to clean it up or to provide appropriate signage to warn you of the hazard, they could be held responsible.
If you were injured like this and you believe you weren’t at fault, government legislation entitles you to make a claim. A personal injury solicitor in Chadderton could help you claim, but with so many to choose from, how do you narrow it down?
Instead, contact Accident Advice Helpline. We’re one of the largest law firms in the UK and we can help you wherever your accident took place. We’ll give you help and support from the outset, and we’ll be with you every step of your claim. Contact us today to find out more.
Work accident in Chadderton
Accidents in the workplace can happen in any industry, although the nature of the accidents, and the injuries they result in, may vary significantly from one sector to another. For instance, in construction, the leading causes of injury are falling from a height, becoming trapped in machinery, being struck by a moving vehicle, and being injured by an object falling on your head.
Every employee has a responsibility to ensure they look after their own safety and that of their colleagues. However, employers have a special duty of care under law to make sure that the work environment is safe to work in.
They must provide you with the right training to do your job without injury and should provide you with adequate protection clothing and gear. They must also make sure that all machinery and equipment is regularly checked and, if a fault is found, repaired or replaced immediately.
If you were injured in a work accident in Chadderton and you think someone else was to blame, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. Talk to Accident Advice Helpline today; we can handle most claims entirely over the phone, so you probably won’t have to go to court.
