Clipsham is a small village in the county of Rutland, which is situated in the north east of the county close to the border with Lincolnshire. The village is probably best known for Clipsham Stone, which is extracted from the region’s limestone quarries and can be found in a number of famous buildings including York Minster and King’s College Chapel.
As well as being home to these quarries, Clipsham also features one of very few pubs to hold a Michelin Star in the shape of The Olive Branch, which was awarded the pub of the year prize in 2008. The fact that Clipsham plays host to such a renowned eatery is made even more unusual by the fact that the village has a population of only around 120 people according to the 2001 census.
This relatively small population also means that for a personal injury lawyer in Clipsham, personal injury compensation claims will be relatively common occurrences.
However, this does not mean that Clipsham could not be the source of a claim in the future, as the right to claim compensation is a nationwide one which does not have a geographical element applied to it. What this means is that wherever you live, you may find yourself in need of the answers to the following questions about the claims process.
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 that deal with an injury to a minor or with an industrial disease, such as asbestos poisoning.
