The seaside town of Sheringham in Norfolk had a population of 7,367 in 2011. Once the town was comprised of two villages, Upper Sheringham and Lower Sheringham, with fishing and farming the mainstay of the local economy. Local fishermen provided London markets with lobsters and crabs. Today, the bustling high street provides employment for many local people, whilst others commute to the surrounding towns and cities for work. Anybody who has been injured in the town, whether living here or visiting the area on holiday from elsewhere in the UK, may wonder if they can make a no-win, no-fee in Sheringham personal injury claim. If somebody else caused your accident as a result of their negligence then the answer is yes, you could well be in line to receive a personal injury settlement. But how did your accident happen?
How did your accident happen?
Accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, and it’s not always clear who is at fault. Sometimes an accident can be nobody’s fault, and if this is the case then you won’t be eligible to make a claim for compensation. But at other times, it’s obvious that negligence has occurred, and if this has happened to you, then a no-win, no-fee in Sheringham claim could be on the cards. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which you could potentially make a personal injury claim for:
- Tripping on damaged pavement on the seafront or in the town centre
- Slipping on a wet floor in a café or shop
- Being hit by tools falling from scaffolding on the high street
- Suffering food poisoning after lunch out with friends at a local restaurant or café
- Being injured in an accident at work
- Another vehicle rear-ending yours at the traffic lights
In all these cases, you could find yourself in line to make a personal injury claim, provided it has been three years or less since your accident happened.
