West Bromwich has a distinguished history. It was first mentioned as Bromwic (meaning ‘broom village’) in the Domesday Book in 1086, was home to a Benedictine priory from the 12th century and became an important stop on the coaching road between London and Shrewsbury in 1727, from which time it began to expand. It was given the prefix ‘West’ to distinguish it from Castle Bromwich, a village on the other side of Birmingham. West Bromwich is commutable to Birmingham, and is close to the towns of Dudley and Walsall.
West Bromwich had a population of 75,405 at the 2011 census. The population of West Bromwich as a whole, is younger than the national average, with fewer older people staying in the area. It has a lower rate of home ownership (either with a mortgage or owned outright) than the national average.

Here are some of the accidents we can deal with.
Road traffic accidents in West Bromwich
West Bromwich has excellent transport links. The M5 motorway which stretches from the West Midlands all the way down to Exeter, has a junction with the M6 motorway in the town, so it is right at the hub of Britain’s motorway network.
The town can become very congested at times thanks to traffic, but the good news is that improvements are underway at the A41 junction by West Bromwich town centre following the award of a £25 million project grant to the area, which should appease commuters once it is competed. This area, where The Expressway meets All Saints Way, carries in excess of 60,000 vehicles per day, close to Junction 1 of the M5.
If you’ve been involved in road traffic accidents in West Bromwich and you want to make a claim for your injuries, get in touch. As long as the accident was not your fault we can help.

We have experts in road accidents, so regardless of what kind of road user you are – pedestrian, car driver or passenger, public transport, cyclist or motor bike rider – we can make your claim for you.

Whiplash accidents in West Bromwich
Commuter traffic and congestion can be a nightmare where accidents are concerned, and one of the biggest issues, where a large amount of traffic is stopping and starting, are whiplash accidents. You may think that someone sitting in stalled traffic won’t really be harmed by a small shunt to the rear, but research has shown that even a difference of five mph between vehicles involved in a collision can cause whiplash injuries.
Whiplash injuries are notorious for showing themselves some time after an incident. Many victims don’t notice a problem immediately. It is only a few hours later that they start to get symptoms, including headache, neck and back pain, dizziness and nausea. If you’ve been in a collision and have these symptoms, you should seek medical attention as quickly as possible. In most cases treatment will involve rest and painkillers, but in more substantial cases, you may need physiotherapy or medication, and you may lose income while you are incapacitated.
To make a claim following whiplash accidents in West Bromwich, get in touch with the experts at Accident Advice Helpline, and talk to them about your accident, injuries and treatment. We’ll be happy to advise on making your claim.
