Choosing Accident Advice Helpline instead of a personal injury solicitor in Halifax can pay dividends when you don’t know who to choose. Halifax is a big place after all. It is a town located in the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire, with a population of 88,134 in the 2011 Census, an increase since 2001 when the population was 83,440.
Halifax has an important historical past, as a centre of woollen manufacture from the fifteenth century onward, and it was also well-known for many years as being home to Mackintosh’s chocolate and toffees, and the Halifax Bank which still keeps its headquarters in the town.

Road traffic accidents in Halifax
An 18-mile stretch of road, namely the A646 between Burnley and Halifax has been named one of the most dangerous roads for motorcycles. Somewhere in the region of 24 per cent of accidents per year involve motorcyclists, that’s almost one in four.
In one year, research showed that 36 per cent of these accidents occurred at junctions, 18 per cent were run-offs (where the motorcycle is run off the road) and 18 per cent were head-on collisions. The remaining 27% were classed as ‘other’. Eleven were serious or fatal collisions.
Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable road users, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we don’t differentiate. We will take your claim on if you meet the criteria listed above, regardless of whether you are a motorbike rider, a cyclist, a car driver or passenger, a user of public transport or a pedestrian. Call us today and ask for more advice about making a claim for road traffic accidents in Halifax.
Whiplash accidents in Halifax
While whiplash can be caused through a variety of means, including sporting accidents, extreme amusement park rides and even slips and falls, the majority of whiplash claims we see here at Accident Advice Helpline come from road accidents.
One of the biggest causes of whiplash you may be surprised to learn, occur when traffic is moving slowly. Drivers lose concentration or just become more careless in their frustration of not moving very far, very quickly. This can lead to rear end shunts that can cause whiplash even at minimal speeds.
Recently, work has started to widen the A629 at Salterhebble that aims to reduce travel times on the route between Halifax and Huddersfield, following many years of complaints about congestion in the area. The problem with any improvement measures of course, is that things become worse before they become better.
If you’ve been involved in an accident in Halifax or on your commute between Halifax and elsewhere, and you want to make a claim then contact Accident Advice Helpline. Whiplash accidents in Halifax can cause injuries that take longer to heal than many people realise, and if the accident was not your fault, you are perfectly within your rights to make a claim. Call us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Halifax
A slip, trip or a fall may not seem very glamorous, but where the accident was not your own fault, you should make a claim for the injuries you received. It is astonishing to think that slips, trips and falls account for the majority of claims that are made for accident compensation every year.
While most of us, thankfully, are able to pick ourselves up and brush ourselves down after an accident, if you hurt more than your pride and somebody else’s carelessness or negligence was to blame, you should think about making a claim. Regardless of where you are, or what you were doing, if you were not at fault, call us today and make a claim for slips, trips and falls in Halifax.
Work accident in Halifax
Any work accident has the potential to be extremely serious, and that’s why at Accident Advice Helpline, our advice is always to make the claim. You may feel that you are jeopardising your employment position, but were you aware that in any given year recently, there are somewhere in the region of 140 fatal accidents at work? Fatal accidents mainly involve a fall from a height or being struck by a vehicle.
In addition, there are over 600,000 non-fatal injuries at work per year, including lifting and carrying injuries and slips, trips and falls. Given the level of these figures, you can see how important it is for employers to follow health and safety guidelines. When they fail to do this, you are well within your rights to take your employer to court or make a claim for your injuries.
This is particularly important where you find yourself out of pocket following an accident at work, or your injuries necessitate expenditure above what you would normally have to pay; for example, you may have to use taxis or public transport rather than use your car, or you may have medical fees and prescriptions to pay.
If you have been involved in a work accident in Halifax that was not your fault, and you would like a law firm that has experience of making claims against all manner of employers, Accident Advice Helpline is the firm you need. Call us today for a no-obligation and confidential chat.
