Somerset Accident Claim


Somerset is a ceremonial and non-metropolitan county found in the far south west of England. The county shares boundaries with Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east and Devon to the south-west. To the north and west the county has a coastline on the Bristol Channel and also runs alongside the Severn Estuary for a spell.

The county of Somerset is one of varying relief and landscapes including the Blackdown Hills, Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels. Alongside these areas of impressive countryside, the county also includes notable settlements such as the cities of Bath and Wells and towns like Taunton, Yeovil and Weston-super-Mare.

Somerset’s Economy

There are a number of different sectors which form major parts of the economy of the county of Somerset, and two of the most notably are those of agriculture and tourism. When it comes to tourism it is the picturesque scenery and large number of visitor attractions which account for many of the visitors.

The agricultural element of Somerset’s economy is more interesting mostly due to its variety and breadth. The county is home to farming of sheep and cattle, including for wool and the county’s famous cheeses (most notably Cheddar) and to a handful of remaining apple orchards for the production of cider. Alongside these, is the more unusual cultivation of willow for basket weaving.

The Population Of Somerset

According to the latest available census data, the ceremonial county of Somerset is home to a little over 910,000 permanent residents. This gives the 1,600 square mile county a population density of around 560 per square mile, which is actually comparatively low.

Having a comparatively low population density tends to mean that a county or area will play host to a lower number of accidents and injuries but the added visitors which Somerset attracts negates this effect somewhat. What that means is that it remains pertinent for residents of the south western county to try to learn a little more about Somerset accident claim proceedings.

Somerset Accident Claim Proceedings

If a resident of, or visitor to, the county suffers an injury which was definitively somebody else’s fault, then they are entitled to embark upon Somerset accident claim proceedings in order to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is designed as recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships suffered through no fault of their own.
