Nestled in between Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk you find the county of Norfolk. Geographically, it is located between The Wash and the North Sea. Norfolk is a large area and covers 2,074 square miles of predominantly rural land. The population is a mere 859,400 which gives population density of just 401 per square mile.
Only 40 per cent of Norfolk’s population live in major built up areas. The largest of these is Norwich which is also the county town and administrative headquarters for the area. Other towns in Norfolk are Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and Thetford.
The wide open spaces of Norfolk are a major draw for tourists who want to get away from the stresses of modern life. The Norfolk Broads are especially popular. They are a network of rivers and lakes where the countryside is undulating and mostly agricultural. On the coast, there are stunning beaches like Horsey Mere, where you can see boats, birds, wind turbines and drainage mills.
The combination of sea air and stunning countryside should provide an enjoyable and relaxing environment where it is hard to imagine anything bad happening. However, accidents can happen here in the same way as in any other location.
One careless act by a driver, a manager or an employer and lives can be turned upside down. You need someone on your side to help you get your life back on track.

Whiplash accident in Norfolk
Following a whiplash accident in Norfolk, you may have walked away thinking that you were uninjured. Perhaps you woke up the next day with neck pain and unable to move your head from side to side or up and down. You may have gone on to develop pins and needles in your arms and headaches. This is typical of a whiplash injury.
Even though your symptoms did not start right away, they are still attributable to the car accident and you are entitled to start a personal injury claim if the crash was caused by another person.
Hopefully, you have the name, registration number and contact details of the person who caused the crash. It is even better if you have contact details for the witnesses. It is important that you consult a doctor as soon as your symptoms start. This is vital for your own health and is needed for your claim.

Work accident in Norfolk
The most important employment sectors in Norfolk are tourism, energy, advanced engineering, manufacturing and food and farming. Several well-known companies in the financial and food sectors are based there.
Agriculture plays a big role in the economy of the area and this sector employs around a fifth of the workforce. Crops such as sugar beet, wheat and barley are grown on large areas of Norfolk’s flat and fertile farmland.
Unfortunately, the agriculture sector has the highest rates of workplace injuries of all the occupations and reports 3,960 injuries per 100,000 workers per year. The reasons for this are not completely understood but it is acknowledged that agriculture presents a diverse set of hazards to employees because it encompasses so many activities. An agricultural employee could be engaged in:
- Construction and building maintenance on farm buildings
- Operation and repair of heavy machinery
- Animal husbandry with hazards of physical injury and infectious diseases
- Handling of dangerous chemicals, including rodenticides and insecticides
Accidents can happen at any time and sometimes an employer is to blame because they did not take steps to protect the health of their workforce. Have you been injured in a work accident in Norfolk in any employment sector including agriculture? We may be able to help you start a claim. If the accident was not your fault, give us a call now.
