Cleveland is an area in the North East of England whose name can literally be translated as meaning ‘cliff-land’ due to the fact that the hilly area in the southern part of the region rises to nearly 1,500 feet. Historically Cleveland was a geographic area within the North Riding of Yorkshire, which was located entirely to the South of the River Tees with Guisborough being its largest town until the 19th century, when Middlesbrough began to expand in earnest. In 1974 however, a non-metropolitan county of Cleveland was created, named after the historic area but not covering it in its entirety and also including land to the North of the Tees, which until then had always been part of County Durham.
This county was based around the Teesside urban area and incorporated Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Hartlepool and Redcar, but was abolished in 1996 when the county boundaries were returned to their traditional positions. The county had a population of over 500,000 according to the 1991 census, and whilst it is no longer officially a county, the area does still have a large population. This therefore means that for injury lawyers in Cleveland is a comparatively common source of personal injury compensation claims.
