Torpoint is a town and civil parish found on the Rame Peninsula in the county of Cornwall, situated on the opposite side of the River Tamar estuary to the city of Plymouth. Torpoint is in fact linked to Plymouth by the nationally famous Torpoint Ferry, a chain ferry that operates by being pulled by fixed chains that are laid across the river bed. The town’s name is sometimes said to derive from ‘Tar Point’, a nickname given to the area due to the initial industrial activity on the western bank of the estuary, but is more likely explained by the fact that Torpoint can be translated as meaning ‘rocky headland.’
The town is an 18th century planned town, having been designed by Reginald Pole Carew in 1774 in a grid iron design, and his family still live in the area at their ancestral home of Antony House. According to the 2001 census the town now has a healthy population of 8,457 and this means that for an injury solicitor in Torpoint, the town is becoming a more common source of personal injury compensation claims.
Do you need an injury solicitor in Torpoint?
As mentioned above, for an injury solicitor in Torpoin, the town is becoming an increasingly likely source of compensation claims and these claims can come in all shapes and sizes. For example, an injury solicitor in Torpoint could produce an industrial disease claim just as easily as it could give rise to a claim related to a road traffic accident. Whatever the type of claim however, potential claimants always ask similar questions about the claims process.
How long do you have to place a claim?
If your claim is in regard to an injury you suffered as a minor or an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, then there is a different 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 question or otherwise you lose your ability to claim.
