Wallasey is a Merseyside town at the north-eastern corner of the Wirral Peninsula. It is home to around 60,000 people, and comprises the distinct districts of Egremont, Liscard, New Brighton, Poulton, Seacombe and Wallasey Village. One of the most distinctive features of the town is that it does not have a single town centre. The main area for shopping, which is called the Cherry Tree Precinct, is in the Liscard district.
The main outdoor recreational area, Central Park, is also located in the Liscard district and was originally the grounds of Liscard Hall although the hall itself had to be demolished after a serious fire.
All of six of the Wallasey districts have their own character and are pleasant places to live or to visit. They are also safe areas to spend time and it is unusual for an accident to occur but that does not mean that they never happen.

Road traffic accident in Wallasey
Wallasey is reached via the M52 motorway which travels north from Chester and along the length of the Wirral Peninsula. According to statistics collected by the Department for Transport, motorway traffic is increasing by around 2.6 per cent per year in the UK and sadly the number of people seriously injured on the motorway has increased by 2 per cent.
Research from the Department for Transport shows that some of the contributory factors of road traffic accidents are external effects such as the weather. This may be because it causes a change to the risk on the roads, for example, by making the road surface more slippery. The M52 is no exception to this and there have been reports of multiple accidents on this motorway during periods of bad weather.
Collisions can happen on any road at any time but if you combine poor weather conditions with speeding motorists then you increase the chances significantly. Perhaps you have been injured in an accident caused by a speeding motorist? A personal injury solicitor in Wallasey could help you with your claim but you may choose to use a national legal firm.

Whiplash accident in Wallasey
Whiplash is a term that many of us have heard of but may not realise that it describes quite a complex injury. There are no broken bones in a whiplash injury. It is caused by damage to the soft tissues of the neck. The medical description is an excessive hyperextension, hyperflexion, or rotation of the neck. In layman’s terms this is the ‘whipping’ motion that you may have experienced in your recent whiplash accident in Wallasey.
There is no single symptom that typifies whiplash, instead it is a collection of symptoms which may include any of the following:
- Neck pain or at least severe discomfort
- Neck stiffness and loss of movement
- Pins and needles in the arms
Whiplash is an injury that you cannot and should not try to diagnose yourself. It is vital that you get medical attention as soon as the symptoms start, even if that is the day after the accident. Soft tissue injuries can take a while to cause pain.
If your injury was caused by another driver, you will need to have seen a doctor before you can start a personal injury claim. The process of claiming does not require any upfront legal fees because there is a no-win, no-fee* agreement in place. If you’d like to chat further about your accident we’d love to hear from you. Give us a call now.
Work accident in Wallasey
It is easy to live in Wallasey and commute to central Liverpool to work thanks to the Kingsway Tunnel. For those that stay within Wallasey for work, there is a thriving tourist industry in New Brighton, especially during the summer months, which provides plenty of hospitality jobs. The service sector as a whole features strongly in the local economy and it has overtaken production as the number one source of employment. However, there is still a strong manufacturing base in the area and a national food brand has a large factory in the area.
Wallasey’s excellent transport links have also made it an attractive location for distribution centres where there are multiple job opportunities ranging from operations and logistics managers to HGV driving and warehouse operatives.
The service and manufacturing industries may appear to be very different types of employment but their workplace hazards and the ways of preventing them are surprisingly similar. Employers in all employment sectors have a duty of care to protect the health, safety and welfare of employees. The concept that underpins all workplace safety, and which has been enshrined in many pieces of legislation, is risk assessment. This is the way of systematically analysing every work task and trying to identify what hazards to health it presents. It is essentially a series of questions. Workplace hazards could include falls from a height, electrocution, chemical burns, manual handling or infectious disease.
If you have suffered a work accident in Wallasey because your employer did not carry out a risk assessment of your work task, get in touch with us here at Accident Advice Helpline because we may be able to help you start a personal injury claim. We understand that claiming against your employer can be stressful and we will offer you all the support you need. Call us now to find out more.
Slips, trips and falls in Wallasey
Personal injury claims for slips, trips and falls in Wallasey can be successful if you have good evidence that your accident was caused by something that should have been done but was not done. For example, if debris should have been cleared away from a walk way but was not. Or if a change in floor level should have been clearly indicated with warning tape but was not.
No two accidents are the same and every case is judged on its unique details. By starting a claim for a fall in a public place you are sending a clear message to managers and owners that this is unacceptable. It may even help to prevent further accidents in the future.
Our skilled and dedicated solicitors have a great deal of experience in helping clients with exactly this type of claim. Call us now.
