Clippesby is a small village in eastern England found within the district of Great Yarmouth in the county of Norfolk. The village is surrounded by the Norfolk Broads and consists mostly of a few rows of houses and cottages, with a number of outlying farmsteads. There are also four buildings of historical significance within Clippesby: the Church of St Peter’s, Rectory, Old Hall and Clippesby Hall. Clippesby Hall brings a degree of tourism to the area, whilst the rest of the economy is largely based on farming, as it has been throughout history. This fact helps to explain why the village has a population of just 120, and this in turn demonstrates why for a personal injury lawyer in Clippesby personal injury compensation claims will be fairly common occurrences.
However, this does not mean that the village cannot ever produce claims, as Clippesby residents are just as entitled to claim compensation as those who live anywhere else within the UK. It is simply less likely that an incident creating a valid claim would occur in such a small village. If it were to occur, though, the Clippesby resident who becomes a potential claimant would be likely to have the same questions about the claims process as everybody else, and these questions will be answered by the remainder of this article.
When and why is compensation available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill, and it was demonstrably somebody else’s fault, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation will be awarded by means of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial suffering that you have endured as a result of your ailment.
How long do I have to claim?
In the majority of cases, you have a period of three years from the incident in question in which to begin claims proceedings, and after this time has passed your ability to claim elapses. The only cases which are subject to slightly different time limits are those which deal with an injury to a minor, or with an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning.
