North Warwickshire is a local government district which also holds borough status within the ceremonial county of Warwickshire, in the West Midlands region of the United Kingdom. The district has its council based in the main town of Atherstone, whilst other notable settlements within its boundaries include Coleshill, Polesworth and Kingsbury.
The district is found in the extreme north of the county of Warwickshire and is almost entirely cut off from the rest of the county by the ceremonial county of West Midlands. The district once had a thriving coal mining industry but the decline of this sector has left it largely rural in nature with the aforementioned towns being by far the most notable centres of population.
The Formation Of The District
The Local Government District of North Warwickshire, as it is today, was officially formed on the 1st April 1974. This was as a result of the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act through parliament, which reorganised local government on a national scale.
In the case of North Warwickshire, the act produced the new district as a merger of the former Atherstone Rural District and parts of the Meriden Rural District (the rest of which was merged into the West Midlands county).
Today’s North Warwickshire District
As has been touched upon above, much of the 110 square mile total land area of North Warwickshire is rural in nature and that means that it is not a particularly heavily populated district. The latest available census data in fact, puts the permanent resident population of North Warwickshire at just 62,014 people.
That makes the district the 308th most populous of England’s 326 districts which may suggest that in North Warwickshire compensation claims are fairly uncommon. However, whilst this is likely the case the fact that accidents and injuries can occur anywhere still makes it worthwhile to briefly discuss those North Warwickshire compensation claims that may occur.
North Warwickshire Compensation Claims
As is the case throughout the UK, in North Warwickshire compensation can be claimed if somebody is injured and it was demonstrably the fault of another party. That party may be another individual, an organisation or a company and common incidents to produce claims include road traffic accidents, injuries at work and slips, trips or falls in public places.
If all of that makes you realise that you may be entitled to pursue such a claim, then you may wish to consider contacting Accident Advice Helpline for advice and assistance.
