Clifford Bridge is a small area in the city of Coventry which is home most notably to a primary school known as Clifford Bridge Primary School. Coventry itself is the second largest city in the West Midlands (behind Birmingham) and the 12th largest in the whole of the UK. The city is a historic one which outdates both Birmingham and Leicester, tracing its origins all the way back to the Bronze Age when the topography of the area made it ideal for settlement. The area also played host to a Roman settlement, and it only took until the 14th century for Coventry to rise in importance as a centre of the cloth trade.
This importance to the cloth industry rose still farther during the industrial revolution, at which time the watchmaking trade also grew in the area. It was this period which saw the most rapid growth of the city of Coventry and led to all area within it, including Clifford Bridge, becoming busier and more populated. This in turn meant that for a personal injury lawyer in Clifford Bridge, personal injury compensation claims became common.
These claims can come in many different variants. For example, Clifford Bridge could produce a claim related to a slip, trip or fall just as easily as it could give rise to one regarding a road traffic collision. However a person comes to need compensation, there are a couple of questions which all potential claimants tend to ask, and the remainder of this article will attempt to answer these as succinctly and accurately as possible.
How long is there to claim?
In the majority of circumstances, you must begin claims proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else your entitlement to claim elapses. There are two types of claim which are subject to slightly different time limits, however — those which deal with injuries to minors, and those which regard industrial diseases like asbestos poisoning.
