It is estimated that there are over 3 million accidents every year in Britain, many of them in the work place. If any of the work related accidents are the fault of the employer, the injured employee should be talking to an accident lawyer in Norfolk about making a compensation claim.
An accident lawyer in Norfolk will first of all make sure they fit the criteria for making a claim, which is:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
Completing our 30-second test is one way to find out if you qualify for compensation, and it will give you an estimate of how much it could be. This figure cannot be guaranteed at this stage of your claim though, as there are too many factors that can affect the final outcome.
