Am I eligible to make a personal injury claim?
If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, the law entitles you to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- within the last three years (except in the case of children), and;
- another person was negligent or at fault, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. There are various other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury or the quantum of the claim.
It costs nothing to find out if you are eligible to claim compensation. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Claim Checker:
The amount of money you could claim for your injury will depend on:
- the extent of your injury, and
- any financial losses or costs you have incurred.
At the start of your claim, your solicitor will consider the many ways your injury has affected your life. Your solicitor will take all of these effects into account to calculate the correct compensation award for you.
This calculation will factor in 'general damages' and 'special damages'.
General damages are awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA).
Awards for general damages are set by the Judicial College and published in their guidelines for personal injury awards.
Special damages are for financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
What can I claim for after an injury? (see list)
Examples of special damages (losses you can claim for) include:
- Lost earnings (including future earnings)
- Medical treatment costs
- Travel costs
- Costs of care
- Costs of adapting your home or car

Accidents in a public place
Health and Safety statistics expose the fact that employee slips and trips are the single most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the Norfolk workplace. They are frequently connected to injuries classified under another heading for instance being hit by an object falling from a vehicle, when helping another person or an exposure to an explosion accident. Public place negligence claims injuries like broken arms happening on potholes are also common with slips having occurred on Yarmouth Rd and on Thunder Lane.
When a patient is injured or becomes ill as the result of the lack of care of a GP, nurse or other medical professional, it may be possible to claim clinical negligence compensation.

Frequently asked questions
How much experience do you have of claims in Brundall?

Last year, we have helped hundreds of people across Norfolk get compensation for a range of accidents and injuries, from motorbike accidents to accidents in the workplace.
Local medical centres, home appointments (if necessary) and a team of experts only a phone call away, make the claims process as stress-free as possible.
Are claims run on a 100% No Win, No Fee basis?
If your claim is not successful, 100% of the solicitor's fees are covered. You don't have to pay any costs upfront, and only pay a standard success fee at the end, if you win your case.
Will I need to select a local lawyer?
The location of the firm is not so relevant as injury cases are typically run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to select a company that provides medical facilities near you as you will almost always be expected to go to an independent medical examination.

Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If an injured person is either too young or vulnerable, too injured or otherwise unable to claim on their own behalf, their litigation friend can handle the claim process on behalf of the injured person.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?
You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.
However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.
How long will my claim take?
The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can take years.
Injury claims can also take longer if it is not clear who is responsible for your injury, or if liability is denied by the defendant.
Taken from average case times, this table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:

Will I have to go to court?
Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.
Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.
Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?
No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.
Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
Can I get an early compensation payment?
If you suffer financial hardship as a result of an injury, you may be able to claim an interim compensation payment.
An interim payment is a partial settlement of your claim which is paid before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
