The historic town of Stafford in the county Staffordshire in the West Midlands is home to approximately 60,000 residents. It is located around 16 miles north of Wolverhampton and is only 24 miles north-west of Birmingham.
The town has a long association with the shoe making industry which began as a cottage industry but became mechanised during the 1700s. More recently, the major activity in the town has been heavy electrical engineering. However, there are several historic sites within Stafford to attract the tourists including the Ancient High House which is largest remaining Elizabethan, timber framed town house in England and is now a museum. Another attraction is the National Trust owned Shugborough Hall country estate which is only four miles outside of the town.
With a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, Stafford is a great base for touring the whole Staffordshire area and it is a safe and fascinating place to visit. Nevertheless, it is not impossible to suffer an accident in Stafford as a visitor, employee or as a resident.
Whilst most accidents are unavoidable and unfortunate events, some are caused by another person’s carelessness and this makes them especially hard to come to terms with. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we don’t see why you should pay the price for another person’s lack of care and want to help you redress the balance.
If you think that you may need a personal injury solicitor in Stafford to help you start a personal injury claim, contact us first. Our no-win, no-fee* agreement and attention to detail make us one of the leading names in the business. Call us now.
Road traffic accidents in Stafford
The busy A518 road connects Stafford with Telford and is the main route to a major theme park so it can get very busy during the holiday season. For many travellers, access to Stafford is via Junction 13 or Junction 14 of the M6 motorway which is also the most popular commuter route to nearby Birmingham.
Motorways in the UK have an enviable safety record but they can get congested during peak periods and this causes frustration for drivers. Some sections of the M6 used by travellers near Stafford have been highlighted as congestion hotspots.
Congestion is no more hazardous in Stafford than anywhere else but it does provide a lot of opportunities for collisions as many cars are in close proximity to each other. All it takes is for one driver’s frustration to get the better of them and they can make a dangerous manoeuvre which results in an accident. At Accident Advice Helpline we are highly skilled at dealing with personal injury claims following road traffic accidents in Stafford. We can help you claim compensation for your injuries and possibly for the money that you have lost as well. Pick up the phone now and call us.
Whiplash accident in Stafford
Low speed collisions in heavy traffic, especially at junctions and roundabouts, often result in an injury called whiplash. Every day, hundreds of people are injured in low speed collisions throughout the UK. If you have suffered a whiplash accident in Stafford then you may have been aware of your head being accelerated in one direction and then another or it may have happened so quickly that you cannot recall it.
It is vital that you seek medical attention for your whiplash injury. For years, the treatment of choice was to immobilise the neck in a stiff neck collar. This is no longer recommended by medical professionals. Instead, you will probably be advised to take pain killers (if it is safe for you to do so) and carry on gently moving your neck.
You do not have to wait to recover before you start your claim. If you would like to take advantage of our experience all you have to do is call. Ring us right now.
Work accident in Stafford
A succession of heavy electrical engineering firms have traditionally provided many jobs in Stafford, and there are several other manufacturing businesses in the town including household names in the transport and goods sectors. Many of the town’s residents also work in the public sector for Staffordshire County Council, Stafford Borough Council or Staffordshire Police as well as at the local Stafford Prison, County Hospital and MoD Stafford. Stafford is often referred to as a dormitory town for Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham.
Standards of health and safety at work have to be equally high in the private and public sectors. If you have been injured in a work accident in Stafford that was your employer’s fault, it does not matter what sector you work in. You have the right to look into making a personal injury claim.
Adjusting to life after a serious work-related accident can be very hard. With a competent legal firm on your side, it makes the whole process a lot easier. Your claim could even result in improvements to health and safety which would benefit future workers. Why not give us a call in confidence right now?
Slips, trips and falls in Stafford
The prevention of slips, trips and falls in Stafford is normally a matter of old-fashioned common sense. If there is something on a walkway, clear it away. If a floor surface is worn, repair it. If some cables are trailing, secure them safely. Failing to do this is gambling with people’s safety (or even their lives) and that is simply not fair.
You are no more likely to fall over in Stafford than anywhere else in the UK but if it has happened to you, you will already know how difficult it is. Perhaps you are dealing with a broken ankle, a sprained wrist or even a nasty head injury after a slip, trip or fall in a public area. This could be a pavement, a shopping centre or a car park.
If you are looking for a personal injury solicitor in Stafford because you have fallen in a public place, your best course of action is to call us right now. We will look over the details of your claim and give you a realistic assessment. Give our friendly advisers a call now.
