    Personal Injury Lawyer in Uphall


    Uphall is a village in the West Lothian region of Scotland found approximately 30 miles from Glasgow and 14 miles from Edinburgh. It is most famous as the birthplace of Formula One driver Paul di Resta. The village had a quiet and unassuming history as a small rural community until the latter half of the 19th century when oil shale was discovered in the area. This discovery and the subsequent attempts to exploit the oil shale deposit led to massive growth as many people moved to the area in such of employment within the oil shale mines and associated oil works.

    The growth of Uphall and the surrounding villages continued to grow around this oil shale extraction right up until the 1920’s when the oil industry went into terminal decline. There was then an inevitable depression in the area but this was somewhat arrested by post-war industrial development at East Mains and Greendykes Industrial Estates and by the increased popularity of the area with commuters for Edinburgh. These factors are what help to explain the modern day regrowth of Uphall as part of a conurbation that also encompasses Broxburn, Dechmont and Livingston.

    This newly found situation as a dormitory settlement for commuters to Edinburgh therefore means that the village does support a fairly healthy sized population. As such, Uphall sees a comparatively large number of accidents and injuries. This in turn therefore, means that for a personal injury lawyer, Uphall is a more likely source of compensation claims than you may have first thought.

    As we have already touched upon, it is Uphall’s higher level of population brought by the new role of the village as a dormitory settlement for Edinburgh commuters which means that for a personal injury lawyer Uphall is more likely to see a significant number of personal injury compensation claims, but what does this mean for residents? Essentially, it means that you may find yourself in need of a personal injury lawyer in Uphall, and if you do then you will want to know who you should turn to.
