Churston Ferrers is a civil parish in Devon, England. It is a coastal parish, sitting between two towns, Paignton and Brixham, and is itself composed of two villages, Churston and Galmpton. The area is famed for Churston Court, now a hotel, which is said to be haunted by monks, and is popular with visitors and paranormal investigators alike.
There are also coastal walks, dog-friendly beaches and local pubs, as well as Churston Go Karts, which is popular with both children and adults. Although Churston Ferrer is a small coastal and rural area, accidents can and do happen there every day. Sometimes these are on the roads around the area, in a workplace or in a public place.
If you were injured in an accident there within the last three years and someone else was responsible, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience of specialising solely in personal injury claims and in that time, we’ve helped thousands of innocent accident victims to make successful claims.
We can help you too; get in touch with us today to find out how.
Road traffic accidents in Churston Ferrers
Churston Ferrers is within the unitary authority of Torbay. This is an area that has only had mild success in reducing overall numbers of casualties on the roads. Casualties fell by only two between 2011 and 2015, from 379 per year to 377. Fatalities fell from one to zero over the same period though.
Torbay Council have begun tackling this issue with a comprehensive road safety strategy that includes school safety, young drivers training and information on drink driving. However, road traffic accidents in Churston Ferrers still happen.
The majority of accidents on the roads are caused by careless or reckless drivers and, no matter how safe and careful you are in control of a car, you can’t always mitigate the actions of others. Road traffic accidents can result in serious injuries like chest or sternum damage, head or brain injury or damage to the back or spine. Such injuries can lead to significant periods of time off work, with a loss of earning often resulting.
If you were injured in an accident like this and it wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for compensation that could help you to recover some or all of your lost earnings. A personal injury solicitor in Churston Ferrers could help you to make a claim, but it can take time to narrow down the huge choice of solicitors and firms out there.

Whiplash accident in Churston Ferrers
Whiplash is an often-misunderstood condition. Often resulting from road traffic collisions, it can result in a range of symptoms that can pass in a couple of days, or become chronic, with the effects still felt up to a year or more later.
Recent research by APIL (the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) found that one reasons for the seemingly-high numbers of whiplash claims in the UK could be that there are around 79 per cent more vehicles on our roads per kilometre than the EU average. More cars per road means more congestion, and whiplash can result from even slow shunts.
Symptoms include headaches, fatigue, dizziness, confusion, muscle spams and pain and pins and needles in the arms. While these are often minor in nature, they can prevent you from taking part in your usual social activities or hobbies, or prevent you from looking after your family.
If you were injured in a whiplash accident in Churston Ferrers, a personal injury claim could compensate you for your pain and suffering, as well as loss of enjoyment. While you could rely on a personal injury solicitor in Churston Ferrers to help you, it can be difficult to know if they have the specialist knowledge you need.

Slips, trips and falls in Churston Ferrers
Slips, trips and falls in Churston Ferrers can happen anywhere, at any time. Most of these accidents are unavoidable and, thankfully, only result in minor injuries that victims recover from quickly. However, in some cases, they can be more serious, resulting in fractured or broken bones.
Slips, trips and falls usually happen for one of a number of reasons, most commonly slipping during inclement weather, tripping over an obstacle or hazard, or falling from a height, or from a chair in an office. In most cases, no one is responsible for these accidents but, occasionally, they can result from carelessness or recklessness on the part of a responsible person.
If you were injured in an accident like this within the last three years and you believe someone else was at fault, government legislation entitles you to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You could be compensated for some or all of the other costs you’ve incurred as a result, including travel costs, medical bills, prescription charges and more.
A personal injury solicitor in Churston Ferrers could help with your claim, but many people are put off by the prohibitively high costs of securing representation. Luckily, Accident Advice Helpline offers a 100 per cent no-win, no-fee* guarantee, which means that you’ll get expert representation and advice and support throughout your claim, at no upfront costs.
Work accident in Churston Ferrers
High numbers of residents in Churston Ferrers are employed in either administrative work, skilled trades or in the caring and leisure sectors. A work accident in Churston Ferrers can happen in any industry. In the care sector, for example, many workers are injured every year due to improper moving and handling of service users.
In many cases, the worker is at fault; perhaps they’re rushing to get finished so they take shortcuts and ignore their training. However, in other cases, victims are injured because they were never provided with adequate training in order to carry out moving and handling safely.
All employers in the UK, regardless of sector, have a duty of care to their staff to keep them safe, and this includes providing adequate training and, in the case of moving and handling, appropriate aids, including hoists or sliding boards.
If you were injured at work and you feel like someone else was to blame, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
