When Rugby is mentioned in conversation, you might be excused for thinking of Tom Brown’s Schooldays, the epic, classic novel. But were you aware that Rugby School, the backdrop to the novel, is indeed a real school? Today, it is an independent co-educational school and indeed is one of the oldest of its kind here in the UK.
Rugby School is, of course, in the town of Rugby, in the county of Warwickshire; a lovely old market town near to the River Avon. Just 13 miles from the City of Coventry, it is the second biggest town in Warwickshire, and as at the 2011 census, it had a population of nearly 71,000. Other than Tom Brown’s schooldays, another of Rugby’s claims to fame is that is thought to be the origin of the sport that carries the same name.
Rugby is also the birthplace of the jet engine which was first built in April 1937 by inventor Frank Whittle.
Rugby town centre is famous for its large number of public houses. In the 1960s a survey revealed that the town had the second-highest number of pubs per square mile in England as a whole. As well as the indoor shopping centre (The Clock Towers) the main shopping area is situated around the High Street and Sheep Street, both of which are pedestrianised, there is also a market here in the town centre which is open on several days of the week.
The economy here in Rugby is mostly industrial as the town has a long association with the engineering industry where both gas and steam turbines are produced. It is also a well-known centre for the manufacture of concrete.
In common with most other busy towns here in the UK, people get injured in accidents now and again, and when they do, many turn to Accident Advice Helpline to act as their personal injury solicitor here in Rugby.

Road traffic accidents in Rugby
The pedestrianising of High Street and Sheep Street has removed the threat of pedestrians being injured by road traffic accidents in the town centre. Accidents of course still take place on many of the side roads, particularly those servicing schools. The new gyratory system is also the scene of road traffic accidents (RTAs) in which people get injured from time to time.
If you’ve been hurt in one of the many RTAs in Rugby and someone else was to blame, you could be entitled to claim compensation. There are three prerequisites to consider before you can go ahead and register a claim. They are:
- Someone other than the person injured must be seen as being to blame for the accident.
- The injury must be a relatively serious one and should have required medical treatment which needs to have been recorded.
- The injury must have been sustained within the past three years.
If you are not entirely sure that your accident/injury conforms to the three points mentioned above, you might like to talk to Accident Advice Helpline. We offer free help and advice whether you appoint us to act as your personal injury solicitor in Rugby or not.
Call us today for more information.
Whiplash accident in Rugby
You may be the innocent injury victim of a whiplash accident in Rugby, and if this is indeed the case, it is something that we here at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with in terms of registering a claim for personal injury compensation.
The three prerequisites shown above must apply to any claim for compensation including of course whiplash injury.
With any claim, it is important to have as much proof as possible to support claiming compensation. Police accident reports can be helpful as can witness statements and photographic evidence. Photos taken on a mobile phone are quite acceptable.
If you would like Accident Advice Helpline to act as your personal injury solicitor in Rugby, to assist you with claiming compensation for a whiplash injury, or indeed any other sort of injury for which you were not to blame, you should get in touch with us today.
Slips, trips and falls in Rugby
Injuries resulting from slips, trips and falls in Rugby happen all the time. They can occur simply when you’re out and about shopping; when you’re moving around in the workplace, or even when you are walking around at home. As ever, the person responsible for any accident that causes injury must be someone other than the injury victim.
The nature and severity of injuries vary greatly from accident to accident and so does the amount of compensation that injury victims are entitled to. You can, however, get an idea of how much compensation you could be awarded for your injury by taking our 30-second test.
The test can be taken on our website by answering short series of simple questions. If however, you feel you would like some help taking this test, then please feel free to call our national helpline to enlist the assistance of one of our friendly advisors.
The sooner you call us and find out how much you could be owed, the sooner you can set about registering your claim with our help.
Work accident in Rugby
Many of the injury claims we are asked to assist with when chosen to act as someone’s personal injury solicitor in Rugby relate to accidents that happen in the workplace.
A work accident in Rugby can be debilitating and if you have to take time off work, can also lead to a loss of earnings. Providing you were not responsible for the accident that injured you, and the incident took place in the past three years, we can recover any loss of earnings, or any other costs directly attributable to your injury when we negotiate the amount of compensation on your behalf.
