Cleethorpes is known as a seaside resort in northeast Lincolnshire, but in reality is in the Humber estuary. This results in several hundred yards of sand for bathers before they reach the sea, at low tide. It also means anyone on the beach has a great view of ships moving in and out of the ports at Grimsby and Hull. Primarily a fishing town, it has been developing as a holiday resort since the 19th century, and has many attractions that bring tourists to the area.
Among them there is a scenic railway, a jungle zoo, five nature parks, cinemas, theatres, play areas, a pier, plenty of shops and eateries to suit every taste. More than 10 festivals are held in the town each year. The town sits on the Greenwich Meridian, and has one of the lowest amounts of rainfall in the UK, another attraction for tourists.
In recent years there has been significant redevelopment in Cleethorpes, mainly through the demolition of old unused buildings in favour of residential homes. Physically linked to the neighbouring town of Grimsby, the town does not have its own council, but comes under the jurisdiction of Great Grimsby.
As with any major conurbation, the potential for the occasional accident is high.

Don’t waste any more time looking for a local solicitor, because here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide you with the best legal representation no matter where you are in the UK.

Road traffic accidents in Cleethorpes
Three main roads end at Cleethorpes; the A180, A16 and A46. The A180 is an extension of the M180, but by the time it reaches Cleethorpes it is a single carriageway. Lincolnshire has some of the most dangerous roads in the country, with the town having a 38 per cent above the national average for casualties from road traffic accidents in Cleethorpes, while Great Grimsby as a whole is 51 per cent above the national average.
The consequences of road traffic accidents can be dire for the injured parties, and their lives can be changed forever. If they suffer a serious head injury they may need care for the rest of their life. If a limb is lost or their spine damaged, they could suddenly find themselves confined to a wheelchair. This is so unfair if the accident they were involved in was the fault of someone else, and they should be compensated for their pain and suffering, as well as for the extra costs and losses accidents often cause.
We are able to deal with most claims over the phone, so instead of having to attend meetings with a personal injury solicitor in Cleethorpes, you can make your claim with us from the comfort of your own home. Find out how we can help with without any stress or hassle: call us today.
Whiplash accident in Cleethorpes
Whiplash is a soft tissue injury, which happens when a sudden jolt to the head stretches or tears the ligaments and muscles, causing pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulder areas. Sometimes, you may not even be aware you’ve been injured until several hours later, and it’s often the next day before you realise you’ve been injured.
Whiplash is a self healing injury, but you should always get checked out by a doctor in case it is masking something more serious. Usually, there isn’t much treatment to be had, aside of painkillers, rest and gentle exercise. However, it’s still important to be examined by a medical professional to ensure it is actually whiplash you are suffering with.
If you have suffered a whiplash accident in Cleethorpes that was the fault of someone else, you may be searching for a personal injury solicitor to help you claim compensation. As one of the largest specialist law firms in the country, we are your best bet to maximise the potential of your claim. Our expert solicitors are waiting to help, so why not call us today?
Work accident in Cleethorpes
Cleethorpes has a higher than national average amount of unemployed people, but this is partly because it has a high rate of people long term sick and retired, which are included in the figures. As you would expect with a holiday resort, the leisure industry accounts for a lot of jobs, nearly 12 per cent, and over 8 per cent of employees work in sales. Both these figures are above the national averages, but the administration and technical jobs are lower than the norm at 54 per cent.
Health and safety at work in Cleethorpes is as important as it is anywhere else. Your employer has a legal duty to make sure your workplace is a safe place for you to do your job, and they also have to ensure there are all the facilities you need. There should always be clean toilets, washing facilities with hot and cold running water and drinking water available. If your work could result in contamination of your skin, there should also be showers for your use.
Your job type is irrelevant if you are injured in a work accident in Cleethorpes; it can happen in any trade or profession. If your boss has failed in their legal duty to keep you safe, and you have been injured as a result, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
