    St Helens Accident Claim


    St Helens is a large town found within the metropolitan county of Merseyside, in the north west of England. The town is located toward the south west of the historic county of Lancashire, in North West England, 6 miles (9.7 km) north of the River Mersey and originated as a ‘Hundred’ of the ancient county.

    The town itself is the principal settlement and administrative centre of the eponymous Metropolitan Borough of St Helens, which has officially only been in existence since 1974 but which has largely been in place in different forms since the late 19th century. The wider borough is responsible for the administration of the 4 townships consisting of Eccleston, Parr, Sutton and Windle, along with St Helens itself.

    A Brief History Of St Helens

    For much of its early history the settlement of St Helens was a small and relatively insignificant one and this only changed as a result of the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries. At this time, St Helens expanded rapidly due to the location of a whole raft of new industries in the area.

    These new industrial sectors included the likes of coal mining, glassmaking, salt, lime and alkali pits, copper smelting and brewing, and all of them brought investment and population to the town. These industries have largely declined in the modern day but it is this period of growth which played the largest part in shaping what we would recognise as modern day St Helens.

    Modern Day St Helens

    Today, patterned rolled glass producer Pilkington’s, a world leader in their industry, stands as the town’s one remaining large industrial employer, with much of the economic activity in St Helens having moved to the commercial sector.

    This change in economic focus has not had too much of an adverse effect on the population of St Helens however, with the town still being home to around 103,000 permanent residents. As such then, it should be clear to see that the major urban centre will play host to a significant number of accidents and injuries. Therefore, it could be crucial for residents to learn a little more about St Helens accident claim proceedings.

    Making A St Helens Accident Claim

    It is possible for a victim of an injury which was somebody else’s fault to make a St Helens accident claim in order to gain recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships caused by their injury.
