Located in Torbay, South Devon, Paignton is an historic seaside town, that together with Torquay and Brixham forms the borough of Torbay, an area also known as the English Riviera. In the 2011 Census, Paignton’s population was 49,021. From the time the town’s name was first recorded in 1086, it was a small fishing village, but the Victorians loved the location, and it grew during the nineteenth century. A new harbour was built in 1847, and the railway line reached the town in 1859. Exeter and Plymouth are the nearest commutable cities.
As with any large town, the potential for an accident in Paignton is high. From incidents on the road to slips and falls while out and about, or even an accident at work, you never know when you’re going to be injured and have to face the consequences. Thankfully, we’re here to help.
We don’t believe innocent people should suffer an injury in silence, and we’re ready to be your voice. Our team of expert solicitors are on hand to assist with making a claim for compensation, and can offer all the advice you need to make an informed decision about your next steps.

Road traffic accidents in Paignton
Due to Paignton being a highly congested area during the summer, there tends to be fewer serious speed-related accidents in the area. However, campaigners from the Road Safety Foundation have produced a colour-coded map highlighting the riskiest roads in Devon. This showed that the A385 between Paignton and Totnes is a medium risk road, meaning it is more likely to be the scene of an accident than some other routes around the town. The Road Safety Foundation calculate risk by comparing the frequency of road crashes resulting in death and serious injury on a stretch of road with how much traffic each road carries.
Paignton also hosts regular motorcycle events which are hugely popular. Motorcyclists come from all around the region, the UK and even from abroad, and visit the town to participate in the good-natured gatherings on the seafront.
If you have been involved in road traffic accidents in Paignton and your accident was not your fault, were you aware that you can make a claim for compensation for your injuries? Regardless of whether your injuries were minor or severe, if the accident was not your fault, you may well be entitled to a pay-out.
To talk to us about the possibility of making a claim, give us a ring on the numbers below. We will talk you through your accident, and advise you on the process. Call us today.
Whiplash accidents in Paignton
Over the decades as road use has increased, congestion in the Torbay area has been a huge problem, with enormous queues of traffic building up along the narrow roads from Newton Abbott heading for Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. There has recently been some relief for locals, thanks to a Government approved package of funding to ease congestion in the Bay, with improvements made to the Brixham Road and Kings Ash Road in Paignton, and the widening of a number of stretches of single lane, to dual carriageway. The scheme aims to improve journey times in Paignton, Goodrington and Brixham.
Road improvement schemes take time to complete, and in the meantime, congestion can increase rather than fall. At Accident Advice Helpline, we know that congestion can lead to frustration and stress, and increased levels of aggression and carelessness in drivers, particularly in the summer when tempers flare in hot temperatures.
As a result of lapses of concentration, it is possible that you could be injured in whiplash accidents in Paignton or elsewhere in Torbay. If you are in collision with another vehicle while meandering down the roads, your low speed may well save your life, but can still cause whiplash.
Research has shown that whiplash strains can occur in collisions with a difference in speed of just 5 mph. This means if you are parked in stationary traffic and someone rear-ends your vehicle, you can be the victim of whiplash.
As with all the accidents that we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline, we would encourage you to make a claim where the accident is not your fault and you have received medical treatment. To discuss making a whiplash claim, call us today and ask us about claiming compensation for your injuries.
Slips, trips and falls in Paignton
Paignton is a town of many hills, and some of them are incredibly steep. Fortunately, the climate is relatively mild, so bad winters of snow and ice are a rarity. Nonetheless, Paignton is a popular area for the retired, so if the roads and pavements are not well-maintained during bad weather, this can be risky for many locals.
If you’ve been injured in slips, trips and falls in Paignton, you may well be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries. If the accident was not your fault, call Accident Advice Helpline today to discuss whether you can make a claim.
We know that money may be tight, so we offer no-win, no-fee* as standard to all our clients. This means you won’t have to break into your savings to make a claim. You probably won’t get that from a personal injury solicitor in Paignton, so that’s a huge benefit of making a claim with us. Call today and find out what we can do to help you.
Work accident in Paignton
Torbay Council are the first to acknowledge that they have a duty to enforce the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, along with all related law. They aim to make sure that work premises are safe for employees and the public and others who visit, and that accidents are prevented wherever possible. They do this by inspecting premises, investigating complaints and accidents, educating businesses about what they need to do, and advising other agencies and planning departments of their responsibilities.
If your employer has fallen short where health and safety is concerned and you have been injured, we understand that you may well be in two minds about making a claim or not. You may fear losing your job for example, and that’s a scary thought. That’s why we recommend you talk to us first when you start looking for a personal injury solicitor in Paignton.
