Tranent is a town in East Lothian, near to the A1 road and approximately eleven miles east of the city of Edinburgh. The town is built on a gentle slope, around 300 feet above sea level and is in fact one of the oldest settlements in the East Lothian region. The prevailing theory regarding the etymology of the town’s name is that it is of Brythonic origin, and is made up of the two elements; Tre meaning town and Nant meaning stream, therefore suggesting that Tranent is ‘the town of the stream.’
Tranent was once an important coal mining town and can trace the origins of this form of extraction in the area all the way back to the 12th century, but as is the case across the UK, this industry has now fallen from favour. Instead, Tranent today is a commuter town serving East Lothian, Edinburgh and the east of Scotland as a whole, meaning that it does still support a healthy population of around 10,000 people. This means that for an injury solicitor, Tranent is a comparatively common source of personal injury compensation claims.

As mentioned above, for an injury solicitor, Tranent can prove to be a relatively common source of compensation claims, and these claims can come in all shapes and sizes. For example, for an injury solicitor, Tranent could produce an industrial disease claim one day and then a road traffic collision claim the next. Whatever the circumstances of a claim, there are a number of questions which all potential claimants tend to seek the answers to.
