It does not matter where you live in the UK, if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. The accident could have been South Norfolk road traffic accidents, Scotland hiking accidents, Wales accidents at work, or absolutely any type of accident, anywhere, as long as it fits the legal criteria, which is as follows.
South Norfolk road traffic accidents must have been the fault of someone else
Someone is to blame for every accident that happens, even if it is the injured party themselves that caused it. Sometimes they are caused through negligence, sometimes through recklessness and sometimes intentionally. The main point is, that to be entitled to claim compensation, the accident must have been caused by someone other than you.
You must have sustained injuries in South Norfolk road traffic accidents
In the accident caused by someone else, you must have sustained injuries to your body or mind. The injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention and medical reports from whoever treated you will be needed when you make your personal injury claim.
Some claimants are asked to have an independent medical assessment of their injuries, and although we realise that with some injuries it is the last thing you will feel up to, it can be the final step in settling your claim.
The South Norfolk road traffic accidents must have taken place no more than three years ago
As with all time limit rules, there are a few exceptions to this, but generally personal injury claims have to be made within a three year time frame of the date of the accident.
Making your personal injury compensation claim
If the criterion fits your situation, Accident Advice Helpline will deal with your personal injury compensation claim for you, making it a fast and efficient process so there is as little hassle as possible for you. We were established over 14 years ago to provide access to justice for blameless victims of accidents and have done just that for many thousands of claimants since then.
We have in house solicitors who operate a no win no fee agreement. Since 1998 there has been no legal aid for personal injury claims and without the no win no fee agreement many people would not be able to afford to make a personal injury claim. As no money is needed to start the claim, or if the claim is lost, the option of claiming compensation is available to everyone.
You can call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 or complete our 30-second test, either way you will not regret making contact with Accident Advice Helpline for your personal injury compensation claim, after being injured in an accident that was not your fault.
