Nottinghamshire is probably most famous as the location of Sherwood Forest, where much of the legend of Robin Hood takes place, and this brings many tourists to the area every year. A large county in the East Midlands, it has a population of over 810,000, more than half of which live in Greater Nottingham.
Settlements have been found dating back as far as the fifth century, when the county was part of Mercia. Since then, the economic base of Nottinghamshire has changed several times. It had the coal and iron needed in the industrial revolution, so mining was the mainstay of income at that time. It also developed a wool industry, and Nottingham Lace is famous worldwide. Because of these industries and the technological businesses that have sprung up in recent years, Nottinghamshire tends to have a lower than national average proportion of people unemployed.
When residents, and visitors, want to spend some of their money on days out, there is no shortage of things to do in Nottinghamshire, and Sherwood Forest is not the only attraction by any means.
Lets just hope no one gets injured in an accident that was not their fault while they are out and about. If this should happen to you, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. There is no need to spend time searching for a personal injury solicitor in Nottinghamshire, call Accident Advice Helpline instead.
We have over 16 years of experience in making successful claims and have already helped many thousands of victims to win the compensation they deserved. We will happily help you as well, so give us a call today.
Road traffic accidents in Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire has several very busy roads running through it including the M1, the A1, the A46 and the A52. In several places the A roads have been rerouted so that they bypass the towns and cities, and this has helped to reduce the number of road traffic accidents in Nottinghamshire slightly.
Accidents still happen though, and innocent victims can become injured when they are not to blame. Most road traffic accidents are caused by driver error, either because a driver is speeding, distracted or tired and should not really be behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
The injuries from such accidents can change lives forever, not just of the accident victim but also of their family and loved ones as well. As well as the pain and physical suffering, financial difficulties can also occur due to expenses caused by the accident. How lives have been affected and the costs and losses related to the accident need accounting for when a personal injury claim is being made. The whole process can be quite complex which is one of the reasons that many accident victims turn to our expertise rather than looking for a local personal injury solicitor in Nottinghamshire. One phone call is all it takes to find out how we can help you, so why not call us today?
