Cheltenham, also sometimes referred to as Cheltenham Spa, is a spa town within the ceremonial county of Gloucestershire, in the south west of the United Kingdom. The town is situated on the course of the River Chelt, at the edge of the area known as the Cotswolds, and is made up of numerous different suburbs and areas including Arle, Benhall, Charlton Kings, St Marks, St Pauls, St Peter’s, Up Hatherley, Whaddon and Wyman’s Brook.
The town is home to a huge number of nationally and globally renowned events which include the Cheltenham Literature Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival, Cheltenham Music Festival and Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival, but most famous of all is undoubtedly the steeplechase horse racing meeting known simply as the Cheltenham Festival. This is arguably the most popular of all horse racing meetings in the country and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. It is therefore the influx of visitors which is encouraged by these large events that explains why when it comes to compensation claims Cheltenham is such a common source.
Personal Injury Claims In Cheltenham
The fact that when it comes to personal injury compensation claims Cheltenham is a likely source means that it is important for residents of the town to understand the basic details of the claims process. This is the case as the propensity of your home town to give rise to personal injury compensation cases does mean that you may be more likely to one day have to pursue your own claim in Cheltenham. With that in mind, therefore, it may prove beneficial for you to read on below in order to learn about when claiming is possible, how long you can wait to begin proceedings and who you should trust to fight your claim on your behalf.
When You Could Claim
It is if and when you have been injured and the injury was proven to be somebody else’s fault that you are entitled, by law, to pursue personal injury claims proceedings. The party at fault may be an individual, organisation or company and common incidents which can produce claims include road traffic accidents, injuries in the workplace and slips, trips or falls in public places.
How Long You Can Wait To Claim
In most cases it is not until more than three years have passed after an incident that your entitlement to claim elapses and even this restriction is not always applied to claims involving an injury to a minor or an industrial disease. So if you feel you have a claim to make, get in touch.
