Even though the borough of Islington was formed from the former boroughs of Finsbury and Islington, it is nonetheless the second smallest of the London boroughs. It is, however quite densely populated, with over 215,000 residents recorded on the last census in 2011.
Although Islington started off as a relatively small and insignificant borough, it has been transformed in recent times, and is now considered to be a high-class neighbourhood. It is a sought-after area, home to various celebrities, socialites and top-end professionals. Its numerous public houses have been transformed into trendy bistros, boutiques, cafes, gastro-pubs and wine bars.
It is considered to be a great place both to live and work, and enjoys excellent transport links to the rest of London and its suburbs, courtesy of its numerous bus routes and tube stations. With Kings Cross and St Pancras stations on its borders, Islington also enjoys excellent links to the North and South of the country.
Islington Green is a favourite meeting place where people can gather to chill out, with Regents Park and Victoria Park also within easy striking distance. In terms of entertainment, there are several famous theatres in the area, including the Almeida and Sadler’s Wells Dance Theatre. There are also a number of excellent live music venues nearby including the 02 Academy, The Garage, and Union Chapel.

Road traffic accidents in Islington
The road network around Islington is a major artery of London, and is always busy, night and day. The A1, the A104, the A1200 and the A501 all carry a considerable weight of traffic, and it is hardly surprising that many of the road traffic accidents in Islington happen on these busy thoroughfares.
Road traffic accidents can involve all types of road users, including car drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists, passengers and pedestrians. If you’ve been hurt in an accident on the road, and someone else was to blame, we at Accident Helpline can ensure you receive any financial compensation you could be entitled to. You might like to make a start by taking our 30-second test.
This test will verify in principle whether or not you have a valid claim. If you do, it will even give you an estimate of the financial compensation you could be owed. It does this by asking you to answer a few basic questions.
- Did you get injured in the last three years?
- Who was to blame for the accident?
- Did your injury require medical attention?
- Which part of your body was injured?
If someone else was to blame for you being injured in an accident that happened in the past three years, and you received medical treatment, you may have a viable claim. If you are thinking of getting Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal injury solicitor in Islington, call us today to find out what to do next.
Whiplash accident in Islington
After suffering a whiplash accident in Islington, you will find it extremely painful to move your neck and head. It will undoubtedly limit the things you can do, and you may find you have to take some time off work. The recovery period can be anywhere from two or three weeks up to several months, and sometimes even longer than a year.
When whiplash symptoms last for months or longer, the condition is termed “chronic whiplash.” In the most severe cases, the spine can also be damaged which adds further complications and may even lead to a permanent injury. Many people think whiplash is a minor incident, but for an unlucky few it can have lifechanging consequences.
When you were not to blame for your accident, it’s not fair that you should have to suffer in silence. Accident Advice Helpline can be your voice of justice, and ensure you are fairly compensated for the suffering and out of pocket expenses you have endured.
