Clun is a small town in South Shropshire that lies entirely within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town’s name is taken from the River Clun, which flows from west to east through the settlement. The valley surrounding this river is dominated by agriculture. Clun and Chapel Lawn is the name of the wider civil parish, which was recorded as having a population of 1,184 at the time of the 2011 census.
The population of the town of Clun itself, however, is thought to be significantly less and would actually be a population more akin to a small village rather than a town. This fact in turn also demonstrates why for a personal injury lawyer in Clun, personal injury compensation claims are likely to be relatively uncommon.

However, this does not mean that the town does not create any such claims as for a personal injury lawyer in Clun, and local residents have just as much right to claim as anybody else. This means, therefore, that Clun residents at one time or another may find themselves asking these frequently asked questions about the claims process.
When and why is compensation available?
The law states that if you fall ill or are injured, and it was demonstrably somebody else’s fault, whether this is an individual or an organisation, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This is then awarded in order to provide the victim with some form of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they have suffered.
How long is there to claim?
If a claim relates to an injury suffered by a minor or deals with an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, then there are some complex case-specific time limits applied to making a claim. Otherwise, there is a period of three years from an incident in which you must begin claims proceedings, or your entitlement to claim will elapse.
