Grantham is a lovely old market town in the county of Lincolnshire. Nestling off the banks of the River Witham, and serviced by the East Coast Mainline Railway from London to Edinburgh, the town is just 23 miles distant from the county town of Lincoln. In 2014, the population was estimated as being around 47,113.
Grantham has several claims to fame. It is the birthplace of Margaret Thatcher; Isaac Newton was educated here at King’s School; it boasts the UK’s first female police officer, and in 1896 this is where the diesel engine was first trialled in a tractor.
The biggest employers here in Grantham are the National Health and the food industry.
As a place to live, Grantham is sought after, lying in the middle of beautiful undulating countryside, and rich in woodlands the likes of Ponton Park Wood. There is also the splendid deer park at Belton House, which is maintained by the National Trust, and Alma Park Woods which is owned and managed by the Woodland Trust.
As well as the London/Edinburgh railway line, the A1 north/south trunk road provides easy motoring access to the rest of the UK.
Grantham based accidents and claiming compensation
Grantham is not unusual in that accidents take place here that cause injury to those involved. Strange though it may seem, witnesses of accidents can also suffer injury; not physical but mental. It’s something called PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and it happens more times that you might think.

It’s because we operate on a national basis thanks to our interactive website and our national helpline.

Whiplash accident in Grantham
A whiplash accident in Grantham or anywhere else here in the UK for that matter can cause debilitating injuries. Generally speaking, the more serious your injury, the more compensation you could be entitled to, and you can get an idea of how much this could be like taking our 30-second test. You can take this test on our website or by chatting to a member of our team of advisors.
When you sustain a severe whiplash injury you’ll find any neck movement extremely painful; so painful that you may have to take time off work and this could course affect your earnings. If you do decide to appoint Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal solicitor, we will ensure that any loss of earnings or any costs incurred as a direct result of your injury will be recovered.
Although you have up to 3 years after the date of the accident during which you can register your claim, we always recommend to potential clients that they should claim at the earliest opportunity. Why not contact us today?
Slips, trips and falls in Grantham
Injuries caused by slips, trips and falls in Grantham are commonplace. Many people are not aware that injury compensation is available for these sorts of accidents; but if someone else is even only partly to blame, you could indeed have a valid claim.
Did you fall because someone has left a trip hazard in your path? Did you slip on a wet floor that hadn’t been appropriately cordoned-off in a store or supermarket? Perhaps there was no slip hazard warning sign in evidence? Did you trip over a raised paving stone?
Any of the above situations could indicate that you have a legitimate injury compensation claim to be registered. If that is indeed the case, we recommend that you call us today.
Work accident in Grantham
A work accident in Grantham could happen in a factory, in a store or supermarket, in a warehouse, or even outside in places like woodlands and farms if the people involved work in those sorts of environments. All employers, no matter what trade or profession they are in have a legal duty to make sure the workplace is safe, and there are health and safety rules for them all to follow.
People can get seriously hurt in falls from height, such as in the case of tree surgeons, or construction workers, working from scaffolding, or indeed anyone working from a ladder. Generally speaking the greater the height that the fall is taken from, the greater the injury. But serious injuries can also be sustained from falls from only two or three feet.
Workplace accidents that involve some sort of machinery such as chainsaws, or any other sort of automatic cutting machinery, often have dire consequences and can easily be life-threatening.
If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident and someone else was to blame, you are entitled to financial compensation, and we here at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to secure what you could be owed.
