Bishopton is a village that can be found in the borough of Darlington in County Durham. The village is sited to the West of Stockton on Tees and originated as a farming community made up of a few cottages, a number of farms and farmhouses and a green adjacent to the main street. At one stage the hamlet of Little Stainton and the village of Great Stainton were counted as part of the parish of Bishopton, but the village now stands alone. According to the 2011 census Bishopton’s population number only 337 making it a very small village, and also meaning that for injury lawyers Bishopton is not a common source of compensation claims.

When and Why Can I Claim Compensation?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and it was demonstrably somebody else’s fault then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This entitlement to claim is in place to allow the victims of accidents, injuries and illness to gain some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that they have suffered.
How Long Do I Have to Claim?
If your claim regards an injury you suffered as a minor, or relates to an industrial disease like asbestos poisoning then there is no time limit as to when you can begin claims proceedings.
