Burnham Market is a village and civil parish close to the north coast of Norfolk, which is actually one of a wide variety of ‘Burnham’ villages in the area. As well as being approximately five miles west of Wells-next-the-Sea, Burnham Market lies close to Burnham Deepdale, Burnham Overy, Burnham Thorpe and Burnham Norton. Its name is thought to either derive from the fact that the village lies at the mouth of the River Burn, or from the fact that the area was once a hotbed of activity in the amber industry.
The ‘Market’ part of the name quite obviously comes from the fact that there once was a market in the village, but this was discontinued around the middle of the 19th century, leading to Burnham Market being classed as a village rather than a market town. The village has a population of just 948 according to the 2001 census, so for injury lawyers in Burnham Market it is an uncommon source of personal injury compensation claims.
Injury Lawyers in Burnham Market
This does not mean, however, that it does not or cannot produce any claims. Burnham Market residents have just as much of a right to claim as those who live elsewhere in the UK, as this is the only way in which the system is fair. If you think that you may have a claim, you will find the answers to the following questions about compensation to be illuminating.
When and Why Is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is available as a means of recompense for the victim for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they have suffered.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
For the majority of claims you must begin proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else your ability to claim elapses. The only cases for which this is not the case are those that deal with injuries to minors or industrial diseases.
