If you have sustained an injury or illness as a result of the negligence of another person or organisation, you may be entitled to sue for damages in Norfolk.
You can potentially bring a claim against almost anyone, so long as you can prove that they have acted negligently. For example, if you sustained injuries in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim against the driver who caused your accident.
What is involved in making a claim?
To make a claim, please contact the legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline. We will take down the details of your accident and notify the third party or their insurance company of your intention to sue for damages in Norfolk.
The third party or their insurance company will then have 21 days in which to acknowledge receipt of the letter and from that moment onwards, they will have three months in which to carry out investigations into your claim. Once they have looked into your case, they must either admit or deny responsibility for your accident.
What happens if the third party or their insurance company admits responsibility?
If the third party or their insurance company accepts that they were responsible for your accident, our legal team will obtain medical evidence to assist in assessing the value of your compensation settlement.
What happens if the third party or their insurance company denies responsibility?
If the third party or their insurance company denies responsibility, you will have to prove their negligence in court.
How much compensation will I receive?
You will also be entitled to compensation for the out-of-pocket expenses you have sustained as a result of your injury or illness. This award, known as special damages, will be based upon your invoices, wage slips and receipts.
Will I have to use my savings to sue for damages in Norfolk?
