Clitheroe is a town in the Borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire, close to the Forest of Bowland and often used as a base of operations for tourists visiting the area. The name Clitheroe is thought to have been derived from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning ‘rocky hill’, and has also historically been spelt Clyderhow and Cletherwoode.
Clitheroe Castle is one of the most historic and famous buildings in the town, and is thought to be the country’s smallest Norman Keep, standing atop a 35 metre outcrop of limestone.
This castle and a number of other tourist attractions nearby are what make the town popular with visitors, and when you combine this with the healthy permanent population of close to 15,000, you realise that Clitheroe is a busy and bustling urban centre.
There are some obvious advantages to this of course, but there are also a number of different challenges posed, including the fact that for injury lawyers Clitheroe does produce a comparatively large number of personal injury compensation claims.

Whatever the type of claim however, all potential claimants will benefit from reading the answers to the following frequently asked questions about the claims process.
When and Why is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation as a result. This compensation is available as a way for victims to receive some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that they have endured as a result of their ailments.
How Long Do you Have to Claim?
For the majority of claims you must begin legal proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else you lose your entitlement to claim. This is not the case however with claims that deal with either an injury to a minor or an industrial disease, where there are no time restrictions imposed.
