Every county has a county town, and it won’t surprise you to discover Northampton is the county town of Northamptonshire. It is recognised as one of the biggest towns in the entire UK, with a population surpassing 212,000 people in the census taken in 2011. With so many residents there, and more coming into the town each day to work, not to mention tourists, it is not a huge surprise to learn the occasional accident claim in Northampton might be made.
While the numbers of people who do this each year are small, this won’t matter to you if you have been injured recently while in the town. While some people suffer accidents, and get away without injury, others might not be as lucky. Perhaps you are one of them.
Why might you make an accident claim in Northampton?
There could be all kinds of reasons why you’ve had an accident. The most important thing to remember if you want to try and claim compensation is that someone else must have been responsible for what occurred. That might mean a driver has crashed into you, even though you had right of way at the time. It might mean you were injured while walking along the pavement, perhaps by a car mounting the pavement, or simply because you fell on an uneven and wobbly paving stone that hadn’t been properly laid.
Some accidents happen while people are at work, too. Most employers do more than is asked of them in keeping their employees safe and free from injury, but there are rare cases where this may not happen. A lack of training, poor housekeeping in the office, factory, or other workplace, and a lack of protective gear could all come up as possible reasons why someone might be hurt while doing their normal job. As you can see, it is of paramount importance to discuss a potential accident claim with someone who handles them daily – that is, a personal injury solicitor. They will know whether there is ample evidence of someone else causing your accident, and therefore good evidence for making a personal injury claim.
