The cathedral city of Salisbury, with its timbered buildings, Gothic cathedral and swan-dotted canals is the sole city in the English county of Wiltshire on the edge of Salisbury Plain. Geographically, it sits at the confluence of five rivers which are the Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, Bourne and the Hampshire Avon. The area is popular with tourists who find that there is plenty to keep them busy and there is a range of accommodation to suit all visitors.
Without doubt, the most famous and popular local attraction is the ancient Stonehenge which is one of the wonders of the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Visitors can explore the ancient landscape on foot and even enter recreated Neolithic Houses to discover the tools and objects of everyday Neolithic life. Stonehenge is about 8 miles northwest of Salisbury.
There is a vibrant artistic scene in Salisbury where you can find galleries situated in the city centre and an annual International Arts Festival held in late May to early June. The Salisbury Playhouse theatre produces several plays a year and hosts many more touring productions.

Road traffic accident in Salisbury
Travelling to and from Salisbury involves a journey on one of the main trunk A roads in the area. The A303 passes to the north of the city and the A338 passes through Salisbury itself. The stretch of the A338 between Salisbury and Ringwood has been named locally as a “highly dangerous stretch of road” with 28 fatal or serious accidents on the same stretch over a four-year period. One suggestion is that the single carriageway alignment and multiple sharp bends result in drivers taking risks when overtaking and this causes head-on collisions with tragic results.
Over-taking is one of the most dangerous manoeuvres that a driver completes and it requires 100 per cent concentration and excellent risk assessment skills. If a driver is reckless when overtaking, many people’s lives can be put at risk and serious injuries can be suffered.

Whiplash accident in Salisbury
The term ‘whiplash’ is used as a short description for excessive hyperextension, hyperflexion, or rotation of the neck. A whiplash accident in Salisbury typically occurs at lower speeds and one of the vehicles involved may even have been stationary at the time of the collision. The bones are not damaged and there are no fractures. Typical symptoms include:
- Neck pain – this can be moderate or severe
- Neck stiffness
- Pins and needles in the arms
Whiplash is an injury that requires medical attention. It is important that other types of injuries (such as a fractured vertebra) are ruled out and that you get the best advice on how your injury should be managed. It is also very important for a personal injury claim.
Starting a claim does not have to add to your stress. You do not have to hand over large sums in legal fees to get the claim started because here at Accident Advice Helpline we operate a no-win, no-fee* scheme. Give us a call now to find out more.

There is a vibrant shopping centre in Salisbury and the wholesale and retail sector provides the highest proportion of jobs (over 16 per cent). As a popular destination for tourists, it is also not surprising that the accommodation and food service activities sector makes up a further 8 per cent of employment.
There is no evidence to suggest that a work accident in Salisbury is any more likely than in any other part of the UK but they can occasionally happen. The workplace hazards presented by the wholesale and retail sector and by the accommodation and food sectors are diverse. In all sectors of employment, employers have a duty of care to protect the health, safety and welfare of employees.
There are many laws and regulations relating to health and safety in the workplace and the need for an appropriate risk assessment is enshrined in many of them. This is a systematic way for an employer to search for, identify, analyse and control hazards that an employee is exposed to. In many cases written records are required and employees need to be consulted.
If you have suffered a work accident recently and you feel that your employer did not carry out a risk assessment, we may be able to help you start a personal injury claim for compensation. If your job required you to work on a roof but due to the absence of a risk assessment you suffered a fall, there may be grounds for a claim.
We have been helping people with claims like this for more than 16 years and we know that it can be daunting to start a claim against your employer. We know exactly how to support you through the process to make it as stress-free as possible. Call us now to find out more.
