    Harrogate Accident Claim


    Harrogate is a spa town currently found within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, but historically was a part of the so-called West Riding of Yorkshire. The town is located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, with the Vale of York to the east and the upland Yorkshire Dales to the west and north-west.

    It is within easy reach of both Leeds and Bradford and for that reason has developed to become a popular dormitory town for those who commute to work in those settlements. The town is in fact consistently voted to be one of the most popular places to live in the whole of the United Kingdom and is also an admired tourist attraction and visitor destination.

    A Potted History Of Harrogate

    It was the discovery of spa waters in the area during the 16th century which really sparked the growth of settlement in the Harrogate area, initially in the shape of two separate villages known as High Harrogate and Low Harrogate.

    The popularity of the area with wealthy visitors who thought that the Harrogate spa waters were a good health treatment contributed to the wealth and growth of the settlement, and they amalgamated to form one settlement during the 17th century.

    From that point onwards Harrogate began to grow toward the town which we would recognise today and in spite of a downturn in its popularity with tourists after WWII, the town remains a busy and active one.

    Modern Day Harrogate

    Today, the town of Harrogate is home to approximately 76,000 residents according to an estimate from the year 2013. This shows it to be a truly significant centre of population which will see a high level of both human and economic activity.

    What the town will also see, however, is an elevated accident and injury rate, and it is this which makes us now briefly turn our attention to the issues surrounding Harrogate accident claim proceedings.

    Harrogate Accident Claim Proceedings

    In Harrogate accident claim proceedings can be comparatively more common due to the elevated accident rate we have discussed above, so for this reason residents of the town should make sure they know when claiming is possible.

    You are entitled to pursue a Harrogate accident claim if and when you have suffered an injury and somebody else was demonstrably to blame in order to gain recompense for the pain which you may have suffered.
