Whether you are based in Downham Market or anywhere in the country, our personal injury lawyers are able to assist with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims must be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It must be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
In all cases, a short, free call with a Downham Market personal injury solicitor will give information and useful advice.
