Blagdon is a village and civil parish in Somerset in the South West of England, situated within the Mendip Hills, which is a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. Situated around 12 miles East of Weston-Super-Mare the town was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, but at that time was known by the name Blachedon from the Old English words ‘Bloec’ and ‘Dun’, meaning the black or bleak down. According to the 2001 census, modern day Blagdon has a population of 1,172 but does welcome a small number of tourists who visit as part of sight seeing holidays in the Mendip Hills. This relatively small population and quiet nature of the town may well lead to the conclusion that for injury lawyers Blagdon is not a particularly busy area, and in the most part this is true.
Injury Lawyers Blagdon?
As mentioned above, for injury lawyers Blagdon is not a particularly busy area, but this is not the same as saying that for injury lawyers Blagdon does not give rise to any compensation claims at all. This is an important distinction to make as it is the nature of life and compensation that accidents and injuries can occur anywhere, and therefore that anyone, regardless of where they live could be entitled to seek personal injury compensation. Therefore, Blagdon residents and anybody else who has been the victim of an accident or injury will find the answers to the following frequently asked questions about compensation to be useful.
How Long Can You Claim?
A common misconception when it comes to compensation is that you must begin claims proceedings as soon as possible after an accident or incident, but this is entirely untrue. In fact, for the majority of cases you actually have three years in which to begin proceedings before your ability to claim elapses, and there are even two types of claim which have no time limit whatsoever. These are claims which deal with an injury to a minor and claims which regard industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
