Amber Valley is the name of a borough in Derbyshire, taking up a portion of the central-eastern part of the county. It is also a local government district, and its population is around 122,300. This means there are some Amber Valley claims that occur each year, although they are uncommon given the size of the population and the claims that do happen.
There can be many reasons why you might consider making a claim relating to an accident that happened in this area. Maybe you are local and something happened to you on a journey you regularly make without incident. Maybe you were passing through the area on your way to somewhere else when something happened. Whatever the situation is for you, there will be a three-year period starting from the day you had your accident during which any claim for compensation must be made. The sooner you get advice about this possibility, however, the better it will be for you to remember details.
Examples of possible Amber Valley claims that might occur
If you are wondering whether you are in a situation that might lead to a compensation claim, it may be useful to read about a few scenarios that could lead to claims being found in favour of an injured person. For example, sometimes an accident might happen while someone is at work. This is far less likely to be true now than ever, since the Health and Safety at Work Act was brought in during the Seventies. But if it does happen, you should consider whether your employer might have been at fault.
Elsewhere, there might be an accident on the roads that means you are left with an injury or two. It doesn’t matter whether you were the driver, or you were a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident, or even a pedestrian. Whatever happened, the most important question will be whether you were injured because a third party exhibited negligence in some way. Similarly, slips, trips, and falls could happen anywhere, but you should ask yourself why an accident like this occurred if you have been injured like this recently.
