Newbridge is a largely residential electoral ward within the boundaries of the city of Bath, in the ceremonial county of Somerset in the south west of England. The name ‘Newbridge’ is also used to refer to the area of the city around the ward, which tends to slightly exceed the actual bounds of the electoral ward itself.
Essentially, the area of the city of Bath known as Newbridge centres on Newbridge Road and Newbridge Hill and is bordered (approximately) by the River Avon to the south, the southern edge of Weston Village to the north and from Chelsea Road to the east to just past Oldfield School and the Boathouse pub to the west.
The Name Of The Ward Of Newbridge
The ward of Newbridge is named after a bridge constructed over the River Avon just outside Bath in around 1734. This bridge was built to replace a ford and was quickly seen as being crucial to the local area, as it allowed much easier transit between Bath and Bristol and thus improved trade between those notable settlements.
The Population Of Newbridge
According to the most recent census from the year 2011, the ward of Newbridge is home to just shy of 5,600 permanent residents. This makes it a relatively densely populated ward and means that it has to face the issues of such an area. What we mean by this is that the ward will see an elevated amount of traffic, noise and air pollution, accidents and injuries. As a result, therefore, it is well worth the while of residents of the ward to learn a bit more about Newbridge compensation claims.
Newbridge Compensation Claims
In Newbridge, compensation can be sought if you suffer an injury and another party was demonstrably to blame. That party may be another individual, an organisation or company. Common incidents which lead to claims include road traffic accidents, trips and falls in public areas and injuries in unsafe workplaces.
These Newbridge compensation claims in general can be started up to three years after the incident in question but after this time has passed then proceedings are no longer available. This is not always the case, however, if the claim regards an injury suffered as a minor or an industrial disease like asbestos poisoning.
