Renishaw is a village in the civil parish of Eckinton, in North East Derbyshire, England. It lies between Eckington and Barlborough and has a section of the Trans Pennine trail long distance footpath running through it. The area’s main economic activity was once an ironworks, run by the Sitwell family, former owners of Renishaw Hall. When the iron industry was privatised, British Steel took over ownership of the house.
With the end of iron and steel industries in the UK, Renishaw focused its attention on drawing in businesses to the business park that now occupies the area of the former ironworks. The Renishaw Park Golf Course takes up part of the Sitwell estate.
Accidents can happen even in small villages like Renishaw, whether on the roads, at work or in a public place. If you were injured in an accident within the last three years and you weren’t at fault, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Whiplash accident in Renishaw
Whiplash is a condition that is often sustained in road traffic accidents, most commonly slow-speed shunts. It has long been misunderstood but increasing research into the condition shows there are a number of reasons why it may seem as though it is a common injury.
Regarding the so-called “whiplash epidemic,” APIL (the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) carried out a survey in 2012 that showed around 40 per cent of people who were injured in this way and would have potentially been eligible for compensation never went on to make a claim, perhaps put off by the stigma surrounding the condition.
Whiplash causes symptoms like muscle pain and spasms, pins and needles in the shoulders and arms and confusion. For many people, these symptoms subside over a day or two and never return. However, a significant proportion of people (up to 1 in 5) report symptoms that last for a year or more, including chronic pain.
Chronic pain can lead to secondary emotional injuries like stress, anxiety and depression. If you were injured in a whiplash accident in Renishaw and you think someone else was to blame, you could make a claim that could compensate you for both your physical and emotional injuries.
A personal injury solicitor in Renishaw could help you to make a claim, but many people are put off by the high cost of solicitors. That’s why Accident Advice Helpline offers a 100 per cent no-win, no-fee* guarantee: if you are eligible to claim, we’ll give you advice, support and expert representation, all at no upfront cost.

Slips, trips and falls in Renishaw
Slips, trips and falls in Renishaw can happen anywhere, but they commonly take place in private premises, like workplaces or businesses, and in public places. Common public areas where accidents like these take place include pavements, where people can trip over loose paving stones, car parks, perhaps slipping on oil leaks or tripping in poor lighting conditions, and parks, where people can slip on wet leaves.
Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe and public places usually come under the remit of the local council or government. It’s not always straightforward to make a claim in these conditions, because you’ll need to prove that the other party was responsible for your injury.
That’s why it’s important to get expert help and support on your side before you make a claim. You could use a personal injury solicitor in Renishaw to help, but with so many solicitors and firms to choose from, how do you know which is most likely to help you make a successful claim?
Accident Advice Helpline is a national firm, one of the largest in the UK, and we’ve already helped thousands of innocent accident victims to make successful claim. We can help you too, and all you have to do is pick up the phone today.
Work accident in Renishaw
Work accidents can take place due to carelessness on the part of the victim but also due to recklessness or unsafe practices on the part of an employer. Every employee should know how to work safely, and should take responsibility for their own safety and that of their colleagues.
However, employers have a legal duty of care to ensure that they take all reasonable precautions to prevent their employees from coming to harm in the line of their work. This means ensuring appropriate training is given, adequate personal protective clothing is provided, and all equipment is regularly maintained. It also means not creating a culture where employees feel forced to carry out unsafe practices, or cut corners in order to get the work done.
If you were injured in a work accident in Renishaw and you believe someone else was responsible, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation that could help you to recover some or all of the associated costs you’ve incurred, like travel costs, medical bills or prescription charges.
