Brampton is a Cambridgeshire village that is situated near to the town of Godmanchester and south west of Huntington. The village has a long and fascinating history and through the years has been known as Brantune (11th century), Brantone, Bramptone (12th-13th century), Brauntone, and finally Brampton (13th century). One of the more fascinating historical linkages of the village is that which it has to diarist Samuel Pepys, which can be described as part history and part legend. Pepys’ uncle Robert lived in Brampton, and the story goes that the famous diarist buried his fortune somewhere in the village during one of his chronicled visits to the area.
The more recent history of the village is not as interesting but is largely marked by the expansion of Brampton, both in terms of physical size and population, to the point that it is now estimated to be home to over 5,000 inhabitants. This makes it very large for a village and does also mean that for injury lawyers Brampton does produce comparatively more compensation claims than most villages.

Whatever the type of claim however, there are a number of questions which all potential claimants ask and these are answered in the remainder of this article.
When and why is compensation available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation as recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships which you suffer as a result of your ailment.
How long do you have to claim?
It is not the case that you have to claim immediately after an incident in order to receive personal injury compensation, in fact in most cases you have three years after an incident in which you can begin claims proceedings. The only cases where this is not the case are those which deal with either an injury to a minor or an industrial disease, in which cases there are no time limits applied to when you can begin a claim.
