Bexley is a London Borough situated in the south east of the city. It is within the Thames gateway, an area designated for regeneration. The river Thames runs through the Borough as do the rivers Cray, Shuttle and Darent. Two of these are small tributaries of larger rivers, but they all form part of the northeast boundary of Bexley.
For a Borough on the edge of London, Bexley has a larger than expected amount of open space and parklands. Bexley Borough Council owns over 100 parks and open spaces of many different sizes, and there are also golf clubs and sports fields around the Borough, making it a pleasant place to live and work. Not everyone loves the outdoors, and for those who want to take part in other activities, there are bars, restaurants, aquariums, museums and a whole host of other activities in Bexley.
With so much going on, it’s almost inevitable that occasionally accidents happen in Bexley. They could occur on the roads, at work or in a public place, and often result in an innocent bystander becoming hurt. Many such accidents are preventable, with nothing more than a little care and attention required to stop someone getting hurt.
If you have been injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else you may be able to claim compensation. If you are already aware of this you may have been looking for a personal injury solicitor in Bexley to help you make your claim.

Road traffic accident in Bexley
Bexley has over 1700 streets and at its widest point stretches to 11.2 miles. The principal roads to run through the borough are the A2, A20, A207 and A206. These are busy roads, particularly during rush hour when congestion makes accidents more likely. Frustration, lapses in concentration and general impatience are frequently causes of accidents, many of which could have been avoided if everyone was paying attention.
Bexley Borough Council is committed to reducing the number of accidents on the roads in the area, and considers training and education to be an important part of this process. In 2015 the council won the London Road Safety Award, mainly for its efforts in training pedestrians to be safe on the roads.
Road traffic accidents can have horrific consequences for those injured. Somehow the pain can be exacerbated when you know that the accident was the fault of someone else. Compensation cannot undo the damage that has been done, but it can help to make it a little easier to cope with.

Whiplash accident in Bexley
Whiplash is by far the most common injury we encounter in our line of work. While most times whiplash is the result of a road traffic accident, you can also suffer it in any other accident that makes your head jolt out of its normal movement zone. This could be as simple as landing awkwardly after a tumble, or falling off your bike.
It can take up to 12 hours to begin experiencing the symptoms of whiplash. These range from pain in the neck and shoulders to stiffness, loss of movement and headaches. Whether you suspect whiplash or not, you should always be checked by a medical professional to ensure there is not something more serious going on.
If you have a whiplash diagnosis as a result of an accident that was not your fault, making a compensation claim can help to get your life back on track. As well as claiming for your injury, we can help you claim back some of the costs you have incurred as a result of your accident. This could include taxi fares, excess payments and prescription charges, so keep your receipts and we’ll be able to help.
Only one in three eligible whiplash victims actually go ahead with claiming compensation, many because they feel it’s just ‘not worth it’. Please, let us assure you that you will not be inconvenienced by the claims process, as we will handle everything for you, leaving you free to concentrate on your recovery. If you’d like to know how much you could be awarded, complete our 30-second test online or over the phone with a friendly advisor. This will give you an indication of whether your claim will be a success, as well as how much you could be awarded. Try it now, and see how much you could claim.
Work accident in Bexley
Of the 250,000 people that live in Bexley over 75 per cent of them are in work, which is just a little lower than the national average. 72 per cent of those in jobs are either skilled workers or employed in administrative or professional occupations. The care sector and leisure industry between them employ another 16 per cent. The remaining workforce is made up of people employed in factories, retail, manufacturing and processing, although the number of jobs is a fair bit lower than the national average for these trades.
Regardless of which trade or profession you work in, all employers must do everything reasonably practicable to ensure your workplace is safe and suitable for you to do your job. This may include risk assessments, additional training or issuing personal protective equipment to keep you safe. The London Borough of Bexley offers support and advice on these matters, so there really is no excuse for poor health and safety at work.
Unfortunately, the occasional accident at work in Bexley still occurs, so if you have been injured and think your employer could have done more to protect you, you could be eligible to claim compensation.

Slips, trips and falls in Bexley
Slips, trips and falls are the most common cause of injury in the UK today. Thankfully, the majority of these accidents cause only minor injuries, but just occasionally the consequences can be much worse.
When we fall, it is a natural reaction to put out our hands, but this can cause more harm than good. It raises the risk of fracturing or spraining the wrist, as well as receiving cuts and bruises as a result. Injured ankles and feet are another common injury incurred when someone slips and falls. Although not life threatening, a broken or sprained ankle can stop you getting about for quite a while. Being unable to drive and possibly unable to do your job could leave you both out of pocket and highly frustrated.
Personal injury claims are not just for serious, life threatening injuries. If someone else was to blame for any type of slips, trips and falls in Bexley, our advisors and solicitors are on hand to help. We can assist you in proving your innocence, validating your injury, and ensuring you receive every penny to which you are entitled.
If there is anything you want to know about claiming compensation, or if you want to find out if your situation qualifies, you can chat to our friendly advisors today. They are here just to help you, and are waiting for your call now.
No-win, no-fee* claims
When the government withdrew legal aid for personal injury claims, conditional fee agreements were introduced. These very quickly became known as no-win, no-fee*, and means you don’t need to pay us anything to get your claim started.
