Road traffic accidents in Telford
Telford is named after the civil engineer Thomas Telford. He is famous the world over for his road and canal projects. Telford is among the most successful new towns to be found in the UK currently, housing as it does new hi-tech businesses, tall office buildings, regenerated housing and estates, as well as the largest shopping centre for miles around. It is also popular with tourists thanks to attractions such as Southwater, Telford Town Park, Wonderland, Telford Ice Rink, and The Telford International Centre.
Given Thomas Telford’s preoccupation with transport, it is not surprising to discover that Telford and the surrounding areas also have some renown as road accident black spots. In recent years, there have been 688 road accidents on the six main arteries in Shropshire, including one in Telford, resulting in 26 fatal accidents, with 52 dead or seriously injured. There were 563 slight accidents resulting in 739 injuries.
Telford can be found at the M54 motorway, and on a spur of the M6 linking it with Wolverhampton and the West Midlands. The A5 road runs between Shrewsbury and Cannock. It is a beautifully scenic area, and many have suggested that this contributes to accidents and road users are not concentrating on the modern fast roads around Telford.

Whiplash accidents in Telford
Whiplash is an incredibly common injury, frequently suffered after being in a car crash. Some victims of this are deterred from claiming compensation, either because they feel it will be too difficult, or because of the perceived stigma. However, whiplash is incredibly painful and inconvenient, and when the accident was not your fault, you are perfectly within your rights to seek a compensation claim.
A whiplash injury occurs when the neck and head are suddenly forced backward and then forward (or vice versa) which puts the cervical spine through tremendously fast motion causing damage to the tendons and ligaments of the neck and upper back. Sometimes it takes several hours to feel any symptoms, but once you do, they can be highly debilitating, and can last for several weeks.
Making a claim for compensation following whiplash accidents in Telford can be a complicated process. Your solicitor will need to be highly experienced in these types of claims to ensure you are able to prove not only the blame for your injury, but the severity and impact on your life too. You’ll be pleased to hear that our legal team have already helped thousands of people just like you to make successful claims, and are ready to help you too.
To find out if you’re eligible to make a claim, or to ask any questions you might have at this stage, simply call our friendly team and we’ll be happy to help. All calls are confidential, and you’re under no obligation to proceed, so why not call us today?
