Compensation trends in Sheffield
There are two notable areas of compensation within Sheffield — workplace injuries and traffic related injuries, such as whiplash.
Sheffield has changed substantially since the height of the iron, steel and coal industries. As with many parts of Yorkshire and the big cities in the north, employment has shifted away from the traditional industries and trades and become less specialised. Some people might think that this has made work life safer in general for Sheffield workers, and in some ways they are right. The move away from heavy industrialisation has reduced the number of serious injuries at work, but notably Sheffield still has a higher than average rate of work-related accidents.

The other significantly high area of compensation in Sheffield is caused by road traffic accidents. Whiplash claims are particularly prevalent in the big cities in the north, mainly as a result of the increase in congestion in the city centres. Whiplash is generally caused in low speed traffic accidents, something Sheffield has more than its fair share of. With whiplash receiving a lot of media and political attention, we are finding that genuine victims are shying away from making the compensation claim they are eligible for, but claiming compensation, even for whiplash, does not have to be difficult or stressful.
