Parkgate is a village found on the Wirral Peninsula within the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester, in the ceremonial county of Cheshire. The village is situated on the coast, close to the mouth of the River Dee and is largely contiguous with the Merseyside urban conurbation. It is largely due to the village’s proximity to this major urban area that Parkgate itself has a large population of close to 4,000 residents.
This means that it is surprisingly large for a settlement that is officially classed as a village, and as a result this reveals the fact that it is worth your while to know about compensation and personal injury solicitors in Parkgate if necessary, as we can point you in the right direction for legal advice.
Personal injury solicitors in Parkgate
Having such a large population for a village makes it worthwhile to discuss compensation and personal injury solicitors in Parkgate, for the simple reason that having a higher population makes a settlement more likely to host a higher number of accidents and injuries.
With this in mind, therefore, you may find it beneficial to read on to find out a little more about the compensation claims process and the best personal injury solicitors in Parkgate.
What makes you entitled to make a claim for compensation?
The logical place to start our discussion of the compensation claims process is with an explanation of when and why somebody becomes entitled to claim in the first place.
According to the law, it is when somebody is injured or falls ill and it was clearly somebody else’s fault that they can claim compensation. A compensation award is aimed to provide financial recompense for the pain which they have suffered as a result of their affliction.
How long do you have in order to make your claim?
If the above information has made you realise that a past incident may have left you entitled to claim, then you are probably wondering if you could still retrospectively begin claims proceedings.
The answer may well in fact be yes, as you do generally have up to three years after an incident in which to begin claims proceedings before your entitlement to claim does pass.
If your potential claim relates to either an industrial disease or to an injury you suffered as a minor, this entitlement to claim may last even longer than that.

If you do intend to pursue a personal injury claim then the very best people to trust to fight that claim are undoubtedly Accident Advice Helpline.
