Clipsham is a small village in the county of Rutland, which is situated in the north east of the county close to the border with Lincolnshire. The village is probably best known for Clipsham Stone which is extracted from the region’s limestone quarries and can be found in a number of famous buildings including York Minster and King’s College Chapel in Cambridge.
As well as being home to these quarries, Clipsham also features one of very few pubs to hold a Michelin Star in the shape of The Olive Branch, which was awarded the pub of the year prize in 2008. The fact that Clipsham plays host to such a renowned eatery is made even more unusual by the fact that the village does in fact only have a population of approximately 120 people according to the 2001 census.
This relatively small population does also mean however, that for injury lawyers Clipsham does not commonly give rise to personal injury compensation claims.
Injury Lawyers in Clipsham
As mentioned above, for injury lawyers Clipsham is not a common source of personal injury claims, and this is because of the fact that with such a small population there is little chance of the types of accidents or injuries which would give rise to a claim. The fact that for injury lawyers, Clipsham is such an uncommon source of claims does not mean that it could not be the source of a claim in the future however.
This is the case as the right to claim compensation is a nationwide one, which does not have a geographical element applied to it. What this means is that wherever you live you may well find yourself in need of the answers to the following questions about the claims process.
How Long do I have to Claim?
In the majority of cases you have a period of three years from the incident in question in which to begin claims proceedings and after this time has passed your ability to claim elapses.
The only cases which are exempt from this time limit are those that deal with an injury to a minor or with an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, where no limit is imposed.
