Amber Valley refers to both a borough and a local government district. It is in Derbyshire in central England, and takes up a portion of the eastern side of the county. The district has a population of around 124,600 people, as of an estimate given in 2016. While it therefore has a sizeable population, it is heartening to know there aren’t too many people who have had cause to find out about personal injury claims in Amber Valley.
Of course, with that said, we all know accidents can occur without warning. Sometimes, we can avoid being hurt and avoid an accident, but if you’re not that lucky, you might be nursing an injury right now that was caused because someone else made the wrong move or the wrong decision. An accident on the roads, or in your workplace, or somewhere else entirely – anything like this might happen and leave you with injuries you weren’t to blame for.
Does the term ‘personal injury’ relate to any injury you’ve had?
Not in this instance, no. Sometimes, you might be injured and yet it is no one’s fault. Bad luck could lead to an accident, for example, or it might be your fault you were hurt because you weren’t paying proper attention. But in other cases, your injury might be caused because someone else did something that caused you to be hurt. When you hear about personal injury claims, it is this type of situation they refer to.
So, it won’t come as a surprise to discover you’ll need evidence that a third party caused your accident to happen if you want to make a personal injury claim. You should also have evidence of the injuries you have sustained. This can be as easy as evidence of having been to see your GP after the accident, or perhaps an A&E unit if your accident was more serious and you required more immediate help. A specialist lawyer can look at your case and decide if a claim can be made, as well.
