For many years, Hounslow has had associations with travelling. In times gone by, it was resting post for those on their way into central London. More recently, it became the site of the first civil airport in England, and Heathrow is still one of the busiest airports in the world.
Hounslow has a vibrant economy and is indeed one of the major economic hubs of our capital city. Many of the local businesses are associated in some way with the airline industry, and it also has a large public sector. Being only 45 minutes or so from Central London, the town and the borough of Hounslow is home to a large community of commuters too.
The borough of Hounslow has many open green spaces, two of the best known being Osterley Park and Gunnersbury Park. Osterley Park contains an old country mansion of the same name, originally constructed in 1576, and its brick stables still exist today. The main building itself fell into disrepair and was replaced with the edifice you see today in the 1760s. During the Second World War, the building was used to train members of the Home Guard. Today both the building and its extensive grounds are owned and maintained by the National Trust.
Gunnersbury Park is recognised as on one the top parks in the country. Unlike Osterley Park, it is owned jointly by Ealing and Hounslow councils. It contains several historically significant buildings, including a Grade II listed example, all sited within a beautifully landscaped park area. In addition to being a recreational park for walkers, Gunnersbury Park also hosts many special events including the Gunnersbury Park Run.

Whiplash accident in Hounslow
Whiplash injuries usually come about as a result of a road traffic accident. With any whiplash accident in Hounslow, you could walk away from the accident feeling fine, because the symptoms of a whiplash injury don’t always present themselves right away. It can often be the next day before you realise you’ve been hurt.
This delay isn’t a problem because it is clinically normal, but it does mean that you will need to go and see your GP for a proper medical diagnosis. Although there isn’t much that can be done to speed your recovery, it is important to ensure you get a confirmed diagnosis to check there is nothing more serious wrong with your spine.
If you didn’t cause the accident that led to your whiplash injury, you could have a claim for compensation. Rather than spending time looking for a personal injury solicitor in Hounslow, why not work with the best in the business and contact Accident Advice Helpline?
We always recommend that it is best to claim sooner rather than later. It means not only is everything still fresh in people’s minds but any other claims that may be going on for vehicle damage are still live too. This is not essential, but it could help. Bearing this in mind, why not grab your phone and give us a call right now?

With the large population here in the borough, slips, trips and falls in Hounslow can happen at any time. Many are innocuous affairs that cause little or no injury. Some do cause significant injury, however, and where this is the case, and a third party was to blame, you could have cause to claim financial compensation.
Many accident victims never get around to claiming, even though they are legally entitled to do so. However, if they were to take our 30-second test, they might well change their minds. You’ll find the test here on our website, and by taking it you will be given an estimate of how much compensation you could be entitled to. It could well surprise you.

Work accident in Hounslow
Having been injured in a work accident in Hounslow through no fault of your own, and if your injury was significant enough to need medical attention, you ought to be thinking about claiming personal injury compensation from your employer. You might think that this is a big step to take, but with help from Accident Advice Helpline, this step you can be simplicity in itself.
In most accidents, there is a degree of carelessness or neglect that is down to the accident victim. If you trip and fall you might, for example, think that you should have been more watchful of what was in your path. Alternatively, if you reached into a moving machine to clear a potential blockage and got caught up in the machine’s workings you might think you were reckless to have done so.
However, the point is that nothing should have been left in your path that could cause a trip and fall, or that all exposed moving parts of that machine should have been appropriately guarded, making access impossible. If these things are not taken care of, then your employer can be held responsible. They have a duty of care to ensure that the workplace is safe at all times.
If you are unsure about your right to claim compensation, the best thing to do is to call our helpline and chat the situation over with one of our friendly advisors. You can access our helpline from any landline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from any mobile. The sooner you clear up any doubts, the sooner you can register your claim, so don’t waste time; call us today.
