Clutton Hill is a village and civil parish found within the Chew Valley in the county of Somerset, situated approximately ten miles from both Bristol and Bath. Clutton Hill derives its name from the Old English words Cludig and Tun, and was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Clutone, which can be translated as ‘a rocky hill enclosure’.
The village was strongly involved in the coal mining industry during the 19th and early 20th centuries, but the nearby mines are no longer working, and the former railway station on the Bristol and North Somerset Railway has also long since been abandoned.
This seeming fall from grace therefore helps to explain why the population of the village today stands at only 1,529, and this in turn means that for injury lawyers Clutton Hill does not produce many personal injury compensation claims.
Injury Lawyers in Clutton Hill
As mentioned above, for injury lawyers, Clutton Hill is a relatively uncommon source of personal injury compensation claims, but this does not mean that no claims can be sourced to the village. In fact, for injury lawyers Clutton Hill residents have as much of a right to claim as anybody else in the UK.
The only reason why there are less claims from the village therefore, is because the low population makes accidents and injuries less common.
However, if a Clutton Hill resident does find themselves in need of a claim they will want to know the answers to the following questions.
How Long do you Have to Place a Claim?
If your claim will regard an injury you suffered as a minor or an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, then there is no time limit as to when you can begin claims proceedings.
However, for all other types of claim you must begin proceedings within three years of the incident in or question or otherwise you lose your ability to claim.
