Injury lawyers in Skelmersdale
Skelmersdale is in West Lancashire and is often known locally as just Skem. It is on high ground 6 miles west of Wigan and 13 miles Northwest of Liverpool. Its development coincided with the industrial revolution and in the early 19th Century, it became an important coal-mining village. In 1851 the population was only 760, but this increased to almost 6000 in just 50 years.
In that same period, in the 14 collieries, there were over 100 deaths, and an unrecorded large amount of serious injuries. Most of the mines closed in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
In 1961 the village was designated as a new town to cope with some of the overflow of residents from Liverpool. Because of the huge influx of Liverpudlians, the town now has a population in excess of 40,000 and very strong links with Liverpool.
In the 1970’s Skem suffered an economic downturn and industry left the area in droves. This lead to high unemployment, an increase in crime, an increase in drug abuse and poverty. In the early part of this century there was, and still is, a drive and initiatives to regenerate the area which have proved very successful and it now has crime rates well below the national average.
At a similar time that the regeneration of Skelmersdale started, there was a change in the law regarding personal injury compensation claims, which meant they could now be handled under the no win no fee* agreement making them available to everyone.
