Bourton-on-the-Hill is a village and civil parish within the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. The village is thought of as one of the most picturesque in the area thanks to the wonderful views of the surrounding scenery, and also features an award-winning public house in the shape of the Horse and Groom ‘gastropub,’ run by brothers Tom and Will Greenstock.
Besides this wonderful village pub, Bourton-on-the-Hill also includes a number of beautiful cottages, including the 17th century Slatters Cottage which is available for self-catering holiday lets. These cottages play host to a handful of tourists each year, but essentially the population of Bourton-on-the-Hill stands at an estimated 288. This means that it is a very small village, and it is for this reason that for injury lawyers in Bourton-on-the-Hill the village does not produce many personal injury compensation claims.
Injury Lawyers in Bourton-on-the-Hill
This does not mean, however, that there cannot be claims launched by residents of the village; Bourton-on-the-Hill residents are just as entitled to begin claims proceedings as those who live anywhere else, due to the fact that the right to compensation does not change from place to place within the UK. This is important as any other system would be grossly unjust, and this way the system is one of equality for all UK residents.
Therefore, any UK residents will find the answers to the following frequently asked questions about compensation to be enlightening.
When and Why Can You Claim Compensation?
The law states that if you fall ill or are injured and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is awarded as a means of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have suffered as a result of your injury or illness.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
The majority of compensation claims must be launched within three years of the accident or incident in question, or else you unfortunately lose your entitlement to claim. The only types of claim which are not subject to this, time restriction are those dealing with either injuries to minors or industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning, which carry more case-specific timescales on which an injury lawyer will be able to advise you.
