Chichester is a cathedral city within the ceremonial county of West Sussex, in the south east of England. The city is located along the course of the River Lavant and has good road and rail transport links to other southern England settlements like Eastbourne, Southampton and Brighton. The settlement has a long history of human habitation which stretches back as far as the Roman era, and because of this does feature some of England’s oldest and most historically significant buildings.
What’s more, Chichester is also the historic seat of a Bishopric and it is the cathedral which was central to this that also gives the settlement its city status. This is an interesting point, as in terms of population Chichester is actually surprisingly small for a settlement with city status.
The Population of Chichester
According to the latest available census data, Chichester supports a permanent resident population of approximately 24,000 people which does, as was mentioned above, make it relatively small for a settlement with city status. It is therefore for this reason that when it comes to personal injury claims, Chichester also produces less of these than you may expect for a city, but this does not mean that you shouldn’t be interested in the issues surrounding claims in Chichester.

The types of incidents which lead to personal injury claims in Chichester or otherwise, can occur anywhere and are by their very nature unexpected and it is for this reason that you residents of the Sussex cathedral city should still endeavour to understand the basic details of the claims process. With this aim in mind therefore, the remainder of this article will attempt to educate you as to when claiming is possible, how long an entitlement to claim lasts and who to trust to fight your claim on your behalf.
When is Claiming Possible?
According to the legislation surrounding compensation, it is when you have been injured and the fault for the injury was demonstrably with another party that you are entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim in the UK.
How Long Does the Entitlement to Claim Last?
