Located on the English Riviera, Torquay is a seaside town in Devon, and a popular place to visit. Although the numbers of tourists have dwindled since the UK resort’s heyday, the rise in popularity of the ‘staycation’ has seen visitor numbers rise in recent years. Recent statistics show 1.7 million visitors arrived in Torquay on day trips, and 646,000 stayed overnight for one night or more. The tourist economy supports around 7,100 jobs, and brings almost £250 million to the local economy.
With stunning beaches, the UNESCO Global Geopark coastline, an expansive zoo and various family friendly days out, visiting or living in Torquay is a pleasure. With so much going on, the potential for an accident is present whether on the roads, at work, or out and about. If you’ve been injured in an accident and feel that someone else was responsible, you could be eligible to claim compensation. Talk to our friendly experts today to find out how we can help.
Road traffic accidents in Torquay
The roads in and around Torquay do not really lend themselves to speeding, and on the whole the roads in the town are not considered as dangerous as roads elsewhere in the country. However, accidents do happen, and regardless of whether you were a car driver, a passenger in a car, a passenger on public transport, a cyclist, a motorcyclist or a pedestrian, if you have an accident and are injured through no fault of your own, you can make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
You never know when you’re going to have an accident. You may be minding your own business as a pedestrian and feel very safe while walking along the pavement, when the worst happens. Collisions between cars and pedestrians are some of the worst we see. It can take an awful long time to recuperate from injuries received in such accidents, as it may mean months of rest, surgery, physiotherapy etc. IF you have spent a long period of time getting well, and there have been months when you can’t work, drive, or even look after your family, if you’ve been inconvenienced in any way at all, then you are fully entitled to claim compensation.
If you have been involved in road traffic accidents in Torquay and you would like to find out more about making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline, get in touch with our advisers. Call the number below and tell us all about your accident and injuries, and in return we can work out whether you have a claim and how much you could win. Don’t delay – call us today.
Whiplash accidents in Torquay
Congestion can be deadly, in more ways than one. While congestion in and around Torquay is not a huge issue when compared to more gridlocked towns and cities elsewhere, Torquay does have its own issues. Recently, Torbay Council declared Hele Road in Torquay was an Air Quality Management Area, thanks to pollution caused by local traffic congestion. They wrote an action plan and are now addressing the air quality in the area.
This is unpleasant, but from our perspective, congestion is also the root cause of many accident claims that we deal with. Drivers caught in slow moving traffic often become stressed and frustrated, and the result can be momentary lapses of concentration, and this is when we tend to see whiplash accidents occurring.
Whiplash accidents in Torquay can happen to anyone. If you’ve been injured thanks to a rear-end, or sideways shunt, and you have received medical treatment for your injuries, perhaps it is worth making a personal injury claim. If your personal injury solicitor in Torquay can’t offer you no-win, no-fee*, talk to us. There’s no point in being out of pocket when you make a whiplash claim, after all.
For more details about no-win, no-fee* claims after a whiplash accident, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
Slips, trips and falls in Torquay
The most common falls seen in Torquay are unfortunately falls from the cliffs. This occurs when people get to close to the edge, climb over safety railings and ignore safety warnings. Occasionally vehicles go over the edge too.
Personal injury compensation is for people who have been involved in accidents and hurt through no fault of their own, so we cannot help anyone who has been reckless with their own safety. However, if you have been injured as a result of anyone else’s carelessness or negligence, and that includes even minor slips, trips and falls in Torquay, then we will be very happy to advise you about making a claim.

Work accident in Torquay
Some employers can be less than scrupulous, it’s a fact, and they can pull the wool over both the public’s and their employees’ eyes. This was the case a few years ago in Torquay when one kitchen fitting company left a gas supply pipe uncapped and simply turned off the supply using the emergency control at the meter, creating a danger of a gas explosion. The company in question displayed the Gas Safe Register logo, but the company was not registered.
Health and safety legislation exists for a reason – to protect the public, and employees. If you’ve had a work accident in Torquay because of breaches in health and safety, it is important that you take action. Report the breaches to the HSE and make a claim for compensation for any injuries you have received. In your case, hopefully the injuries were minor, but for your colleague next time, what if they aren’t so lucky?
You can talk to Accident Advice Helpline confidentially, so call us today and ask about making a claim for your injuries.
