One of the most common reasons for which people make claims for compensation is for accidents and injuries that have happened on the road. Perhaps the most common of these are for whiplash – see our whiplash claims guide.
Accidents and injuries on the road in Norwich and the county of Norfolk as a whole have a large impact on individuals and the community. It is estimated (by the Department for Transport) that the annual financial impact of accidents on the road in the county is £155m. There were also 410 people either killed or seriously injured on the counties roads within a one year period.
There are ofcourse numerous circumstances in which accidents on the road arise and victims may be injured. Accidents may be caused by another road user, by poor weather conditions and a failure to prepare the road surface, or because of defects in the road which have not been repaired by the appropriate highway agency.
If you have been affected by a road traffic accident injury, please contact our panel of solicitors who can handle personal injury claims in Norwich.
Medical staff, practitioners and health service providers are trusted to provide patients with the highest possible level of care. In fact, those dispensing medical services and advice have a duty of care to ensure that patients are not harmed and have the best possible course of care or treatment. For the most part, this is true, but there are instances where medical service providers or practitioners fail to meet the standards expected and this may result in harm to a patient. If you have been harmed due to the negligent way in which your care was dispensed to you, you may be able to seek compensation.
Negligent medical care could have a serious and in some cases even devastating effect on the patient. If you have been affected by negligent care provided by a doctor, a hospital worker, a dental practitioner, nurse or other medical service provider and are searching for no win no fee solicitors that can cover the Norwich area please call our advisors for more information.
Your employer should recognise and follow the appropriate health and safety processes and procedures applicable to your workplace and work role. They should make sure that you have any and all necessary training, are provided with the correct workplace equipment and are issued with any protective equipment or clothing necessary to ensure your safety. They should also maintain your workplace and any machinery you are required to use. You can learn more about your employer’s obligations by reading the Health and Safety Executive.
If they have failed to do so, and if you were subsequently injured, they may be liable to pay you compensation. People sometimes worry about the effect that making a claim may have on their employer, their relations with them and even if they could be dismissed for doing so. To find out if you could make a claim for an accident in the workplace or for unfair dismissal related to having been injured at work, contact us to discuss your circumstances.
Our panel of no win no fee solicitors who are not based in Norwich but could cover the area and conduct a variety of holiday accident and injury claims. Claims may be made against package holiday companies or against individual service providers. If your accident took place outside the UK it may be a little harder to claim and sometimes your claim needs to be made in that country, thus making the case subject to different laws, regulations and personal injury claim time limits.
There are however specific regulations and laws in place to help people to claim compensation if they have been injured in an accident on a package holiday, whether through the fault of a hotel, airline or provider of a pre-booked and inclusive activity.
In addition to being able to claim for an accident or injury which happened abroad, you could also claim compensation if injured in the UK. For example, you may have been injured at Norwich Airport due to a slip or fall, or have had a road traffic accident when using a holiday transfer.
There are other circumstances in which personal injury claims could be made in relation to holiday accidents. Speak to our team to find out more.
Each year thousands of people across the UK are victims of violent crimes and criminal assaults. They could include criminal acts such as sexual assaults, (violent) muggings, as well as unprovoked assaults and attacks. If you have been the victim of a violent crime, you may be able to claim compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. Statistics relating to CICA claims can be found here.
The first thing that we should note in relation to a personal injury claim in Norwich for assaults, sexual abuse or instances of attacks, is the personal injury claims time limit is (in general) much shorter at two years.
If you have been the victim of a criminal attack, such as an assault or other violent crime, you could be able to claim compensatory damages from the CICA. Our panel of no win no fee personal injury solicitors covering Norwich includes those who are experienced in handling claims for criminal assaults and injuries.
There are of course many other circumstances in which you could have been injured through no fault of your own, and for which you could claim compensation through our panel of no win no fee lawyers covering Norwich.
Other types of accident claims which you could make may include accidents and injuries which have happened either to a child or an elderly relative for whom you are legally responsible. Either of these parties may not be able to claim on their own behalf, either due to age or other limiting factors.
One of the most common types of accidents are slips and falls in public places. By this, we mean such accidents which have happened whilst walking down the street when crossing the road or when in a shop, shopping centre or restaurant.
If you have been injured in a circumstance which we have not discussed in this guide, please do contact our team. We may still be able to help you make a claim.
No win no fee claims can be made in circumstances other than for personal injuries and accidents. If you think that a financial product, such as a pension or an investment has been mis-sold to you, you could claim compensation with our panel of no win no fee solicitors who cover the Norwich area if you have suffered financially.
According to the Financial Conduct Authority, financial services and products should be sold in a clear, fair and not misleading way. Your financial service may have been mis-sold to you if it meets any of these criteria:
- That the party providing the service, product or advice did not make sure that you were properly aware of any risks associated with this product, such as the risks associated with an investment.
- If you were not told about or not properly informed of any fees, charges or costs associated with the product you took out.
- If you were not asked about your health or habits such as smoking.
- If you were the victim of hard selling and felt pressured into purchasing a product, using a service or buying an investment.
Landlords are under legal obligations with regards to how tenants deposits are to be handled. Deposits must be paid into one of three government-approved and backed Tenancy Deposit Schemes. The deposit must be protected in order to be able to be fully returned to the tenant or paid to the landlord if necessary. Deposits must be paid into the scheme in order to prevent a landlord from using the deposit as a source of income. It means that it should be easier for a tenant to be repaid their deposit at the end of a tenancy.
If the landlord does not protect the deposit within 30 days, does not use an approved scheme or otherwise does not comply with rules around the handling of tenancy deposits, a tenant may be compensated.
In the first instance if a landlord has not carried out repairs that are necessary to a rental property, you may need to follow pre-action protocols.
As a tenant, you may claim compensation from a landlord if they failed to carry out a repair that is necessary and failed to do so within a reasonable time. You may be compensated if the property is not fit for you to live in, if your health has been affected, if your property has been damaged – such as by a water leak, or if you became financially out-of-pocket.
