Chopwell is a village in Tyne and Wear which is more famous than many settlements of its size due to its strong left-wing links, which at one time led to it being nicknamed ‘Little Moscow.’ As well as this, the village also has a much larger population than you may expect, which means that for a personal injury lawyer in Chopwell, the village produces a comparatively large amount of compensation claims.

These claims can be of all types and variants. For instance, Chopwell can be the source of claims for road traffic collisions, industrial diseases and more. Whatever the circumstances of a potential claim, there are a number of frequently asked questions about the claims process, which will be dealt with in the remainder of this article.
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. This compensation is available 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, but for some types of claim there are arguably more flexible and less restrictive time limits imposed than this. 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.
