    Injury Lawyers in Bishops Castle


    Bishops Castle is a small market town in the South West of Shropshire in England that is situated approximately 20 miles North West of Ludlow and 20 miles South West of Shrewsbury. As well as being a thriving market town with strong agricultural traditions the town is also a ‘Walkers are Welcome Here’ town, having won the award in 2008. A major reason why Bishops Castle is so popular with walkers is due to its proximity to the Shropshire Way, an important walker’s thoroughfare. Despite having a population of only 1,630 according to the 2001 census, the popularity of the town with walkers and hikers does therefore mean that for injury lawyers Bishops Castle is a more common source of compensation claims than you may expect.

    Injury Lawyers in Bishops Castle?

    As mentioned above it is largely because of the high footfall of walkers and hikers that for injury lawyers Bishops Castle is a more common source of personal injury compensation claims, and it is worth dwelling upon this fact as it illuminates an important point about compensation. The fact that for injury lawyers Bishops Castle, a relatively small market town, can be a comparatively common source of claims accurately demonstrates the fact that accidents, injuries and therefore claims can occur anywhere.

    This in turn means that anyone could be the victim of an accident and injury and would find themselves in a position where they may wish to claim compensation and would need the relevant knowledge to do so successfully. This knowledge will be provided in the shape of the answers to some frequently asked questions, which will follow in the remainder of this article.

    When and Why is Compensation Available?

    The law states that if you have been injured or have fallen ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is awarded as some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you, as the victim, have suffered.

    How Long Do You Have to Claim?

    For the majority of claims you must begin proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else you lose your ability to claim. There are a couple of exceptions however and these are claims that regard either an injury to a minor or an industrial disease, where no time limits are imposed.
