Cleethorpes is a town and popular seaside resort found on the east coast of the UK in the north east of the county of Lincolnshire. The name Cleethorpes is thought to derive from the words clee meaning clay and thorpes meaning village, and before becoming a unified town Cleethorpes was a collection of three villages, or thorpes, known as Itterby, Oole and Thrunscoe.
In the late 19th century the spread of the railway to the area is what really helped the town to develop and thrive as a coastal tourist resort along with the close by town of Grimsby.
Grimsby did in fact try to absorb Cleethorpes and make it officially part of the Grimsby urban area in 1974 but the local authority successfully resisted, instead agreeing in 2009 that Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham could be marketed under the Greater Grimsby banner.
Today, Cleethorpes remains popular with tourists and day trippers, and according to the 2001 census the town had a population of 31,853. This makes it a busy and bustling town but does also mean that for injury lawyers Cleethorpes is a relatively common source of personal injury compensation claims.
Injury Lawyers in Cleethorpes
As mentioned above, for injury lawyers, Cleethorpes does produce a comparatively large amount of personal injury compensation claims, and these claims do result from a multitude of different incidents. For example, for injury lawyers Cleethorpes can one day give rise to a claim related to a road traffic accident and then the next day produce a claim related to a slip, trip or fall.
Whatever the circumstances behind the claim however, there are a number of questions which all potential claimants ask about the claims process.
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 as recompense for the physical, psychological and financial pain that you have suffered.
How Long Do you Have to Claim?
In the majority of cases you must begin claims proceedings within three years of an incident or else you will lose your ability to claim. The only claims where this does not apply are those which deal with injuries to minors or industrial diseases.
