Located in Cheshire in the north west of England, Warrington is the largest town in the country and is situated on the banks of the River Mersey. It is commutable to Liverpool (just 20 miles) and Manchester (also 20 miles). The population in 2011 was 207,700 and growing, which was double that of the town in 1968.
Founded by the Romans as a base at which to cross the River Mersey, Warrington went on to become an important centre of textile and tool production over the years. Today, Warrington is known for being a relatively affluent area with high levels of home ownership, and in a bid to become a new city, is expanding access to new housing, retail and business premises.
If you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor in Warrington after an accident in the town, but you’re struggling to find the right one, Accident Advice Helpline are here for you. You may be worried about the criteria for making a claim for compensation, but give us a ring and we’ll be happy to talk you through the process. The basic criteria we look for when taking on a new claim are as follows:
- You had an accident that was not your fault
- You received injuries in the accident that required medical attention. This could be at your GP surgery, at hospital, from a paramedic, or something similar.
- The accident occurred during the last three years.
There are a few exemptions to these rules, so if you’re not completely certain if you qualify or not, do discuss your accident with one of our friendly advisers. Get in touch with us today and find out just how easy making a claim can be.
Road traffic accidents in Warrington
There are two roads in Warrington that have been named among the top ten most dangerous roads for motorcyclists in the north west. The A574 and A49 were listed in sixth and seventh place respectively. Motorbike riders are particularly vulnerable road users, with those under 25 the most likely to be involved in motorcycle incidents in Cheshire and the north west. Older people on motorbikes, aged 65 plus, were least likely to have an accident, and men were 94 per cent more likely than women to be involved.
Motorbike riders often get poor press as it is assumed that many drive recklessly, and while this is sometimes the case, it is equally likely that other road users don’t look for them when exiting junctions, pulling over, changing lanes, or making ordinary road manoeuvres. Everyone has a right to use the road, but no-one has the right to endanger lives.
If you’ve been involved in road traffic accidents in Warrington thanks to the carelessness or negligence of other roads users, and you received injuries, you should make a claim for compensation. Along with motorcyclists, we regularly make claims for cyclists, pedestrians, car drivers and passengers, as well as those using public transport.
It only takes a momentary lapse of concentration from someone else, and your life can change forever. To find out more about making a no-win, no-fee* claim for your traffic accident, give us a call today.
Whiplash accidents in Warrington
Did you know it is entirely feasible for a motorcyclist to suffer whiplash? Along with car drivers and cyclists, any motorbike rider can be shunted from the rear or the side, and the difference in travelling velocity of even 5 mph, can cause the neck to be extended or rotated sharply, as it whips from one side to another.
Whiplash injuries can be nasty, and while many of them simply require some rest and a few days of painkillers, there are situations where complications can occur, or the initial injuries were more serious. We understand that you may be loath to make claims for whiplash accidents in Warrington, but if you have been troubled by your injuries, we recommend you do so.
Get in touch with us to talk about pursuing an accident claim. Our friendly advisors will ask for details of the accident, where it happened and who was involved, as well as where you received treatment for your injuries. We’ll let you know if you’re likely to be able to make a successful claim, and if you’d like to go ahead we’ll start work on your case right away.
You’re under no obligation to go ahead, so contact us here at Accident Advice Helpline today and let’s get started.
Slips, trips and falls in Warrington
Warrington is home to one of the largest shopping centres in North West England, thanks to its modern town centre and relatively affluent population. The town centre has in excess of 135 different shops, and there is a popular indoor market, several shopping malls, and a number of larger out-of-town shopping areas.
While most shopping trips are relatively uneventful, there is always the chance you could become injured unexpectedly. Slipping and falling in a shopping mall can be a painful experience, with unforgiving hard floors causing bruising and even broken bones. Sometimes, when this happens, we’re just not paying attention, but just occasionally it’s the fault of someone else.
If someone was mopping the floor but didn’t place down a warning sign, if the lighting had failed in a stair well, causing you to fall, or if a box had been left outside a shop and you tripped over it, you shouldn’t blame yourself for your accident. You have a right to feel safe when you’re out and about in a public place, and if someone else has put you at risk, you could make a claim for compensation.
If you need to make a claim following slips, trips and falls in Warrington, Accident Advice Helpline are here for you. We have worked on numerous cases where clients have been forced to claim for injuries sustained in slips, trips and falls. slip, trip or fall, get in touch with us today and ask about making a no-win, no-fee* claim.
