    Compensation in Wymondham

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Wymondham


    Talk to Accident Advice Helpline if you need compensation in Wymondham. The historic market town of Wymondham lies in the countryside of Norfolk, England. The town is located just 15km to the south-west of Norwich and benefits from close proximity to the A11 route, the main Norwich to London link.

    Wymondham is perhaps most famous for the devastating fire that occurred here in the 17th century and for being the home town of Robert Kett, who led an almost unarmed peasant rebellion in 1549 that ended badly, when King Henry VIII’s armed men defeated them and Kett was hanged in Norwich Castle, the very city he and his peasant rebels had held for nearly six weeks.

    On Sunday, 11th June 1615, Wymondham’s little world was turned upside down, when two separate areas of the town, namely Vicar Street and Middleton Street on one side and Market Place, Fairland and Bridewell Street on the other, were engulfed by flames. The Great Fire consumed ca. 300 properties, which included the 13th century Market Cross, the Town Hall, the schoolhouse and the vicarage.

    As it turned out later, the fire had been started deliberately, allegedly by three Romany or Gypsies, William and John Flodder and Ellen Pendleton (a member of the Flodder family). A local resident, Margaret Bix was also later convicted. Whether they were really guilty or just made scapegoats will probably never come to light. They were executed on 2nd December 1615 and the good burghers of Wymondham began rebuilding their town almost immediately afterwards.

    Today the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) would be handling compensation claims from victims or their families who had been injured or killed by such a fire. Sometimes such claims are turned down in the first instance, which is usually when a compensation claim in Wymondham or other specialist would begin to handle such a claim for compensation. An appeal would have to be made to the Tribunals Service for Criminal Injuries Compensation, an independent authority.

    Complex cases can often take quite some time to settle with the CICA, as compensation awarded must include money for loss of earnings, present and future, if injuries were severe and medical treatment will be on-going. Even when no culprit of a crime is found and convicted, victims and their families can still be awarded compensation.
