Road traffic accidents in Abergele
Abergele is part of the county of Conwy, and area that has seen overall numbers of accidents on the roads drop from 398 in 2011 to 323 in 2015. However, over the same period, fatalities rose from five to nine, and accidents resulting in serious injuries rose from 53 to 56.
It’s often difficult to pin down exactly why this would happen, but Conwy Council certainly takes these statistics seriously. They have implemented a number of road safety initiatives such as school crossing patrols, Kerbcraft and road safety for children.
Road traffic accidents in Abergele can result in serious injuries such as damage to the chest and sternum, broken bones and head or brain trauma. While modern cars are designed to be safer than ever, the nature of the accident means there are no guarantees that you’ll be protected from such injuries.
That’s why it remains important to be a careful driver but, even then, we can’t always protect ourselves from other drivers who are carless on the roads. If you were injured in an accident like this and it wasn’t your fault, you should look into making a claim for compensation. A personal injury solicitor in Abergele could help you make your claim, but it can take time to narrow down your choices to find someone who will give you the best shot at winning your claim.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you wherever you are, because we’re one of the largest law firms in the UK. We have years of expertise in this field and we’ll put that to good use, providing you with help, advice and top-class representation. Call us today to find out more.
Whiplash accident in Abergele
Whiplash is a common injury associated with road traffic accidents. It can occur in even slow shunts and, in fact, recent research has shown that modern safety features in cars designed to limit serious injuries may in fact make the chances of sustaining whiplash more likely.
Whiplash is caused when the head and neck are thrown forward and back on impact. When the movement of the body is stopped by a modern locking seatbelt, that force continues to travel through the unprotected neck and head, snapping it back and forth. This overextends the muscles and ligaments in the neck, leading to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, muscle spasms, chronic pain and pins and needles in the arms.
While these injuries tend to clear up quickly, in some cases, they can last much longer. This can lead to secondary psychological injuries like stress, anxiety or depression, particularly if you were prevented from working or carrying out your usual hobbies or social activities.
A claim for compensation can compensate you not only for your physical injuries, but your emotional ones too. You could use a personal injury solicitor in Abergele to help you make your claim, but it can be hard to find one who has the expertise and experience you need.
Accident Advice Helpline has an excellent reputation for providing the best possible service, advice and representation to our customers; in fact, we score a massive 4.7 out of 5 on feefo.com thanks to reviews from our previous customers. We can put that expertise to use helping you to make your claim, so if you were injured in a whiplash accident in Abergele within the last three years and it was someone else’s fault, call us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Abergele
Slips, trips and falls in Abergele can sometimes seem like minor accidents relatively speaking, when compared with other kinds of accidents. Most people are lucky enough to experience only minor bumps and scrapes, and perhaps some damaged pride if the fall took place in public.
However, other people aren’t so lucky. Depending on how the slip, trip or fall was caused, some people sustain more serious and debilitating injuries like fractured or broken bones. While most of these accidents are unavoidable, at times they are caused by someone else’s careless or neglect; for example, if a loose paving slab or drain cover was not fixed in time.
If you were injured in an accident like this and you believe someone else was responsible, you don’t have to suffer in silence. If you were prevented from working due to a broken wrist, for example, you could receive compensation to cover your loss of earnings.
A personal injury solicitor in Abergele can help you to make a claim, but solicitors can be costly. If you’ve experience financial difficulty due to lost earnings, that could put you off making a claim. However, with Accident Advice Helpline, you don’t have to worry.
We offer a 100 per cent no-win, no-fee* guarantee, which means you don’t need to pay anything upfront to start a claim. That means you can seek justice and compensation no matter your financial situation. Call us today to find out more.
Work accident in Abergele
Large numbers of residents of Abergele are employed in managerial or directorial positions or in professional occupations. Many people assume that work accidents only happen in high-risk industries, such as construction or manufacturing, but this isn’t the case.
A work accident in Abergele can happen in any industry. In offices, for example, common accidents are people falling from chairs, tripping over obstacles like boxes or cables, or being injured by objects falling on their heads.
Most of these accidents can be avoided by better housekeeping and, while it’s everyone’s duty to look after the health and safety of themselves and their colleagues, employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that they take all necessary precautions to ensure that their employees don’t come to harm in the line of their work.
This means undertaking risk assessments and removing or reducing any obstacles or hazards noted, as well as signposting any that remain and providing training on how to deal with these safely. They should also ensure that the office is kept tidy and safe, including providing adequate storage facilities and ensuring that IT systems are designed in a way that prevents trip hazards.
If you were injured at work and you believe someone else was to blame, you could make a claim for compensation. This could help you to recover some or all of the costs you’ve incurred, whether that’s medical bills, travel costs or prescription charges.
