Crewe is often referred to as the ‘railway town’ because of its long association with trains and rail transport. It has a nationally important railway junction, often regarded as the ‘gateway’ between the north and south rail networks. It is also home to Crewe Works, which was once a major railway engineering facility but is now reduced in size.
There are around 72,000 people living in the area who can enjoy the two small shopping centres called the Victoria Centre and the Market Centre. For outdoor recreation there is the lovely Queens Park which was set up on land donated by the London and North Western Railway (the predecessor of the Grand Junction Railway (GJR) company who established the first locomotive works and railway station in Crewe in the late 1830s. There are several events held in Queens Park throughout the year.
Crewe is a home town to many and a stop-off point on a journey for thousands more. For the majority of people, their experience of the town will be entirely positive. However, for a minority, it will be the location of an accident that was not their own fault. Despite Crewe being a safe and pleasant area, accidents can happen here as they can in any modern town.
Accidents can be caused by a very brief lapse in concentration, and yet the implications can last for months or even years.

Road traffic accidents in Crewe
Whilst Crewe may be mainly associated with rail travel, there are several major roads in the area (the A350 and the A500) and the M6 motorway passes close to the east of the town. As with all motorways, there are risks of high speed pile-ups especially when traffic is slow moving or when there are queues. This type of accident can result in very severe injuries and even fatalities and high numbers of vehicles can be involved in one incident.
The M6 junctions at Crewe and Sandbach were identified as accident hot-spots and as locations where 16-metre emergency crossover gates would be installed. These road safety features are put in place so that drivers can safely turn around and access the other carriageway when an incident occurs. This cuts down tailbacks and decreases the risk of further multi-car pile ups, driving down the likelihood of so many serious injuries and loss of life.
Despite these very sensible road safety improvements, some accidents still occur. If you were travelling on the major roads or motorways around Crewe and were injured in an accident caused by another driver, it may be possible for you to make an injury claim.
At Accident Advice Helpline we want to assist you with the process. We can help after all kinds of road traffic accidents in Crewe because we are the experts in this type of claim. Call our friendly advisers today to find out more.
Whiplash accident in Crewe
Not all accidents on the roads result in life-threatening injuries. Some people walk away from low speed collisions thinking that they are uninjured only to wake up the next day with bad neck pain and loss of movement. This is usually because they have an injury called whiplash; the most common injury to be reported in accidents on the road.
If you have been involved in a whiplash accident in Crewe, it is likely that you will be suffering from at least one of the following symptoms:
- Pain in the neck area
- Stiffness when moving the neck
- Pins and needles or even numbness in the arms
It is vital that you collect the details of the other drivers and vehicles involved in any collision even if you think you are not injured. You deserve to have some compensation for this injury and you should not lose out. Give us a call now and get your claim started.
Work accident in Crewe
As you would expect for a ‘railway town’ the rail network and station play a significant role in the employment scene of Crewe. As well as the station, there are a couple of locomotive maintenance depots and several leading manufacturing brands have factories in the area. It is home to the headquarters of some leading retails brands as well.
There are a number of business parks around the town hosting light industry and offices. Crewe Business Park covers around 70 acres and provides employment opportunities in offices, research facilities and IT manufacturing. The smaller Crewe Gates Industrial Estate is adjacent to Crewe Business Park and home to some food manufacturers and The Weston Gate Business Park is mainly dedicated to distribution and light industry.
Modern working premises on business parks usually have high health and safety standards as they are built for purpose to high modern specifications. However, rarely, accidents can happen here as they can in any other employment setting. When the accident was caused by an employer failing in their duty of care it is especially upsetting for the employee.
