Broadland is a local government district found within the ceremonial county of Norfolk, in the East Anglia region of southern England. The district is named for the Norfolk Broads and has a council that is based in Thorpe St Andrew, which is a suburb of the City of Norwich.
The district was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 as a result of the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act and came about as a merger of a number of former administrative entities. These were the former St. Faiths and Aylsham Rural District and part of Blofield and Flegg Rural District.
The Makeup And Character of Broadland
The local government district of Broadland is entirely parished and is comprised of no fewer than 65 civil parishes, most of which are related to a settlement. Some of the most notable settlements within the district include the likes of Great Plumstead, Wroxham and Horsford, but the district was actually announced as the most peaceful locality within the United Kingdom, having the lowest level of violent crime of anywhere in the country.
The district covers a total land area of approximately 213 square miles and is home to around 125,000 residents according to the latest census data. This gives the district a population density of approximately 580 per square mile, which is actually relatively low. That makes accidents and injuries comparatively uncommon within the district but does not mean that we shouldn’t discuss Broadland accident claim proceedings.
Broadland Accident Claim Proceedings
Even if accidents are less common than in more densely populated areas, if you are injured in Broadland accident claim proceedings may be open to you if that injury was demonstrably somebody else’s fault.
This is because those Broadland accident claim proceedings are the means by which you can seek financial compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain caused by your injury. If this makes you think that you may be able to pursue such a claim, then you will want to know how long you have to claim and who can help you to do so.
How Long Do You Have To Claim?
For most types of claim you must begin proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else the entitlement to claim elapses. This three year restriction is not always applied, however, to claims involving either an injury to a minor or an industrial disease.
