Clevedon is a seaside town in North Somerset, just south of Bristol. Although it’s mostly a dormitory town for Bristol, it’s also a popular tourist attraction with a number of attractions including ornamental gardens, the Curzon cinema which is the oldest cinema still operating in the UK and a Victorian bandstand. There is also Clevedon Pier which was opened in 1869 and was completely renovated in 1986 after a period during which it had fallen into disrepair.
Injury Lawyers in Clevedon
Because it is a tourist attraction, Clevedon attracts a large number of visitors, particularly in the summer season.

No matter how the claims have arisen however, the potential claimants are likely to ask some or all of the following questions about what injury lawyers in Clevedon can do for them, and will benefit from reading the answers before they embark on their claims proceedings.
How Do I Know Whether I Can Claim?
To be eligible for compensation, you must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test at the Accident Advice Helpline website.
How Long Do You Have To Claim?
For most types of claim you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings and after this time has elapsed you can no longer claim. This is not the case however, with claims that deal with an industrial disease or with an injury to a minor. For disease claims, the three years run from the date that the disease was diagnosed rather than the date that the victim contracted the disease, and for minors, the three years run from the injured person’s 18th birthday.
