Burtonwood is a district of and civil parish within the outer reaches of the suburbs of the city of Warrington in the north of England. The area is probably most well known for including and giving its name to an RAF base, but the parish also supports a healthy population of over 11,000 residents, which gives it a busy and bustling feel but also means that for a personal injury lawyer in Burtonwood, the area is a relatively common source of personal injury compensation claims.

These claims come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, Burtonwood produces claims as wide-ranging as those relating to road traffic collisions, those dealing with dangerous faulty products and many more. Whatever the type of claim, however, there are some key questions to which every potential claimant needs to know the answers.
When and Why Is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. The reason that this is available is in order to help the victim to cope with the physical, emotional and financial implications of their ailments, which they have suffered through no fault of their own.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
In the majority of cases, you have three years from the incident in question in which you can begin claims proceedings, although for some types of claim there are arguably more flexible and less restrictive time limits imposed. These types of claim are those which deal with injuries to minors and those which regard industrial diseases, such as asbestos poisoning, where symptoms can take a number of years to manifest themselves.
