Walsall has an estimated resident population of 269,323. Interestingly, the population structure has an ‘above average proportion’ of residents made up of children and older people, with a therefore correspondingly lower proportion of working age people. Families tend to have more children, and there is lower life expectancy than the national average.
Walsall has a long industrial history, and was responsible for the production of a diverse range of products including saddles, chains, buckles and plated ware. It was made prosperous thanks to nearby limestone quarrying. After a period of stagnation, Walsall is currently undergoing a new era of urban regeneration. Many former industrial brownfield sites are being replaced with modern houses, flats and offices, which is great news.
If you live or work in Walsall and you have had an accident in the last three years, or you were visiting the town when your accident occurred, you may well want to make a claim for your injuries. Call Accident Advice Helpline today and find out whether you can make your claim and receive cash compensation.

Whiplash accidents in Walsall
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have a range of specialist who are experts in particular types of accidents. If you’re considering making a claim for whiplash accidents in Walsall, then you’ve come to the right place.
Many people are put off from trying to make a claim for whiplash, as they feel there is nothing worth pursuing, and they fear they will not be believed. However, at Accident Advice Helpline, we think that if you have a genuine claim to pursue, you should go for it.
Whiplash is a particularly nasty injury, that general comes about after a shunt from the rear while you are in your car. However, it can also result from a sporting injury (for example, in rugby, skiing or racing), from riding on extreme rides (such as rollercoasters), or even after jolting your neck when you trip or fall.
Whiplash occurs when your head is jolted backwards and forwards (or forwards then backwards) sharply, in a whip-like movement. This causes some neck muscles and ligaments to stretch more than they normally would.
If you have suffered whiplash injuries in an accident that was not your fault, and you’re unsure about making a claim, it really can’t hurt having an informal chat with us. Our friendly advisers can take you through your accident and injuries, and advise on what your next step should be. We really don’t think you should suffer in silence, so call us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Walsall
If you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor in Walsall thanks to injuries you’ve received after a slip, trip or fall, you may be feeling a little daft. Take heart! You are not alone. According to the HSE, these sorts of incidents are the biggest cause of injuries in the UK. While most injuries received in such accidents are not serious, some can be. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we’re well aware that even minor injuries can mean time off work to recuperate, and sometimes a loss of income, not to mention the pain caused.
When someone else has caused your injury, you will inevitably be feeling frustrated as well as coping with your pain. From not clearing up a spillage to failing to warn you about the wet floor, from not lighting the path properly to leaving a broken paving slab; when someone else is to blame for your tumble, why should you just grin and bear it?
Hundreds of thousands of people are left injured after slips, trips and falls in the UK every year. While many are just plain and simple bad luck, the occasional one is actually the fault of someone else, and shouldn’t be suffered in silence. If you’re someone who was injured in an accident that was not your fault, talk to us and see what Accident Advice Helpline can do.
Work accident in Walsall
Some of the most frightening accidents we deal with occur at work.

This can be where the relevant health and safety guidelines are not being followed, or the proper training has not occurred.
