    Compensation solicitors in Rickmansworth

    Rickmansworth is a small town in the south western part of the ceremonial county of Hertfordshire, in central England. The town is situated approximately five miles to the East of Watford, 20 miles (32 km) northwest of central London and inside the perimeter of the M25 motorway.

    The name Rickmansworth is believed to come from the Anglo-Saxon period, with the ‘Rickman’ part thought to refer to a local landowner of the name Ryckmer and the ‘Worth’ part meaning ‘farm or smallholding. Therefore, the name can be said to translate as meaning ‘Ryckmer’s Farm’.

    Modern Day Rickmansworth

    Today, Rickmansworth is a significant population centre with a total resident population of close to 15,000 people and an economy which is largely related to the agriculture industry. This is due to the fact that the town plays host to the headquarters of the English Guernsey Cattle Society, the Jersey Cattle Society, the UK Holstein Society, the British Friesian Breeders Club, the Milk Development Council, Quality Milk Producers and the Centre for Dairy Information.

    This demonstrates therefore, that the town is an important one for agriculture, and the level of population itself also reveals that Rickmansworth can prove to be a relatively common source of compensation claims.

    How Long Is There To Claim?

    For most types of claim, the prospective claimant can wait up to three years after the incident in question before beginning claims proceedings, but if they wait any longer than this then their entitlement to claim elapses. The main sorts of claim which aren’t always subject to this three year rule are those which deal with injuries inflicted upon children under the age of 18 and those which regard industrial diseases like asbestos poisoning which may take longer than 3 years to become apparent.
