Somerset is part of the English West Country, with Glastonbury and its Tor being within the county. The cathedral city of Wells is also in Somerset, and apart from its history, Somerset also has some coastal resorts such as Minehead. Wells is England’s smallest city, with some truly amazing architecture. Vicars Close in Wells is believed to be the oldest mediaeval street in Europe and one which has been occupied since it was built in the 1360s. The street in the Close are cobbled, and it is linked to the cathedral by a bridge. It was originally built for members of the choir so that they would not be distracted by the more worldly parts of the city. Vicars Close is probably one of the only places where there are no road vehicle accidents in Somerset.

How long to file a claim?
Generally speaking, you have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the British Isles to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, the sooner you begin the claims’ process the better for you, as claims can take years to be settled. If you are lucky and the claim is not disputed, you may be awarded compensation within a year.
Not all accidents and their resultant injuries have a three-year limitation period however. In some cases you have much less time to file a claim. If you miss the deadline, you forfeit your right to file your claim, so call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have to file your potential claim.
