The sparsely populated county of Herefordshire can be found in the West Midlands of England, bordering Shropshire to the north, Worcestershire to the east, Gloucestershire to the south-east, and the Welsh counties of Monmouthshire and Powys to the west. The county town is Hereford which has a cathedral, and is home to approximately 55,800 inhabitants according to the UK Census of 2011. The county is largely rural, and most of the land is given over to agricultural use, particularly to grow fruit for cider production, or to graze the Hereford cattle breed.
Road traffic accidents in Herefordshire
The agricultural nature of the county of Herefordshire, can cause problems unique to rural areas. Mud on Herefordshire roads puts lives at risk according to West Mercia Police. They have warned farmers that the police will not hesitate to take legal action. The warning comes after they have had to deal with a number of dangerous situations caused by mud that has been left on the county’s roads. They have been forced to send out patrols looking specifically for farm vehicles dropping mud. In the past, A-roads have had to be closed following complaints about the danger and hazardous conditions, and investigations have considered whether such dangerous road conditions have led to a number of collisions over the years, including one which caused serious injuries.
The police have noted that it is a situation they have to face every autumn, when farm vehicles leave large clods of mud on the roads during the autumn harvest. Farmers therefore have to be reminded of their responsibilities and liabilities under the Highways Act.

Whiplash accidents in Herefordshire
Strangely, a section of the A44 between Leominster and Worcester has the dubious honour of making a list of the world’s top 23 dangerous roads for American travellers. The stretch of road that runs between Herefordshire and Worcestershire is statistically one of the riskiest in the world for our US visitors who are travelling abroad, according to The Association for Safe International Road Travel.
Road safety campaigners have suggested the road is dangerous because it has several blind corners, that makes it potentially hazardous to motorists if they don’t drive carefully.
If you have had an accident on the A44, or any other road in Herefordshire, have you considered making a claim? While many whiplash accidents in Herefordshire only require rest, gentle exercise and painkillers in order to heal, if you received medical treatment after a road accident for whiplash injuries, and the accident was not your fault, you will be able to make a claim.
To find out more about claiming for whiplash in Herefordshire, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
Slips, trips and falls in Herefordshire
The third most common cause of accidental death in Herefordshire are falls. Every year, some 35 per cent of people over the age of 65 years fall and hurt themselves. While many suffer only very minor injuries fortunately, the worry is that with an ageing and growing population, the numbers of people hurting themselves continues to grow.
Most falls will not result in serious injury but they can have substantial consequences for older people, leading to a decrease in confidence, a fear of falling, loss of mobility and an increase in dependency on family and carers.
If you, or someone you know, has been injured in slips, trips and falls in Herefordshire thanks to the carelessness of negligence of someone else, you can make a claim for compensation. The accident may have occurred out and about in public, in a supermarket or other retail premises, in a hospital or care home, or at a gym or leisure facility of some kind.
Call Accident Advice Helpline today to ask about making a claim using no-win, no-fee*. No-win, no-fee* means you don’t have to put your savings at risk, or scrabble around to find the money to make a claim if you don’t have the financial wherewithal. Our advisers are here to help, so give us a call.
