    Claims in County Durham


    County Durham is a unitary district and ceremonial county in the far north east of England, and has the County Town of Durham. The county borders Tyne and Wear, Cumbria, Northumberland and North Yorkshire, forming part of the north east England region, and the largest settlement within County Durham is the town of Darlington.

    The economy of the county has historically been based on a combination of agriculture and mining, as well as a heavy railway industry, particularly in the southeast of the county in Darlington, Shildon and Stockton. The fact that all of these industries have gone into decline within the UK has therefore caused significant problems and has meant that County Durham has found itself in need of regeneration and reinvention.

    The Regeneration And Reinvention Of County Durham

    There are a number of different regeneration and gentrification projects within County Durham and the majority of them are aimed at promoting the county as a tourist destination. This is a savvy course of action as the county does have a good deal of attractive scenery which could quite easily attract walkers, cyclists and sight-seers.

    Whether this attempted rebranding of the county is going to be a success remains to be seen, but if it is there are a number of potentially unforeseen issues which the county may have to face. Key amongst these will be the issues surrounding personal injury claims for County Durham residents, as an extra influx of people can create more accidents and injuries.

    Personal Injury Claims County Durham

    Personal injury claims County Durham-based or otherwise, result from accidents or injuries where the victim of the incident was not the person to blame for it. Therefore, anything which might increase the number of these types of incidents, like an extra influx of visitors to an area, can also increase the number of personal injury claims for County Durham residents. If you’re sensible then, you will read on and find out who you can get in touch with if you ever need to pursue a claim and want your claim to be handled by the best in the business.
