    Injury Lawyers in Bishop’s Waltham


    Bishop’s Waltham is a small town in the Hamble Valley area of Hampshire in England that has a long and fascinating history. With a name that can be translated as ‘bishop’s forest settlement’ the town began as a small Saxon village but steadily grew to being one of the largest early villages in Hampshire despite being burnt to the ground by the Danes in 1001 AD. It was in the 19th century that Bishops Waltham became a thriving market town thanks to playing host to several agricultural suppliers and cattle market.

    Through this time the population continued to grow and in the 2001 census the town was recorded as having a population of 6,550. This is not the population of a large urban centre but is large enough to mean that for injury lawyers Bishop’s Waltham isn’t an unlikely source of personal injury compensation claims.

    As mentioned above for injury lawyers Bishop’s Waltham is not an unlikely source of compensation claims, but that is not to say that these claims are overly prevalent in the area. Instead it is simply one of many areas which do produce some claims but are not amongst the most common locations as far as production of claims are concerned. This may seem like a relatively trivial matter, but what the fact that for injury lawyers Bishop’s Waltham does produce claims tells us, is that while claims aren’t always common in a given area there is always a possibility that a claim will arise.

    Therefore, this in turn tells us that wherever you live you may require further information about compensation claims, and that will form the major focus of the remainder of this article.

    When and Why Can You Claim?

    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. This compensation is available in order to offer victims some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they have suffered.

    How Long Do You Have to Claim?

    In most cases you must begin claims proceedings within three years of an incident or else you lose your ability to claim. There are however two types of claim which are not subject to any time limits and these are those which regard an injury to a minor and those which deal with industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
