So, the most important thing is being able to prove that someone else caused the car crash in Norway and so they are responsible for the injuries you have suffered. Aside from this, the accident must have occurred within the last three years, as this is the time limit on all claims, and you must have seen a doctor for your injuries.

If you have been injured in a car crash in Norway and it was not your fault, Legal Expert can help you to get the compensation you deserve. That is why we have put this post together – to reveal everything you could possibly need to know. This includes information on the steps you should take, the emergency contact numbers in Norway, how to make a claim, and the service we provide.

In Norway, the emergency numbers you need are 110 for the fire brigade, 112 for the police, and 113 for the ambulance. It is always wise to jot these numbers down before going on your travels.
As Norway is part of the EU, you will be able to access free or reduced state healthcare by using your European Health Card. This is something you can apply for, free of charge, via the UK Government website if you do not have this card already.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident in Norway, it is important to contact the police at the earliest opportunity. You also need to get the details of the perpetrator, as well as calling your own insurance company to inform them of what happened.
If you are thinking about making a personal injury claim in Norway, there are lots of things you need to take into account and lots of steps you have to take. To ensure you do not forget anything, read on for your ultimate checklist…
- See a doctor – There is only one place to begin and this is with the fact that you will need to see a doctor if you want to make an accident claim. Of course, this is also important for your injuries. You have to receive the proper treatment. However, if you have sustained a small injury, do not bypass a trip to the hospital. This will seriously damage your case.
- Get contact details – Get the contact details of the person that caused the incident. You will need their name, address, telephone number and the details of their insurer. If it was a car accident you should also get the registration number and take note of the make. Witness contact details are also important, as their statements make effective evidence.
- Report the incident – You may need to report the incident. If you have been involved in a serious car accident in Norway or a hit and run you should contact the police. You will also need to contact your insurer.
- Keep proof of expenses – You will be able to claim for any expenses encountered as special damages. However, you will need proof of these if you want to make a claim. Therefore, don’t forget to keep receipts and such like. Special damages can include everything from repair costs, to medical expenses, to loss of income.
- Ring Legal Expert – Last but not least, you need to make sure you get in touch with Legal Expert. We are one of the leading law companies here in the UK. There is no one better to handle your accident claim.
You will need to report your road traffic accident to the police so that there is an official record of what happened. You also need to inform your insurer at the earliest opportunity.
Have you sustained whiplash from a car crash in Norway? If so, you simply must see a doctor, and in this section we will reveal exactly why.
Needless to say, if you have sustained severe whiplash, you will have no choice but to see a doctor. However, a lot of people only experience a mild case of this injury, and thus a good proportion decide that they are going to cope with the symptoms themselves instead of taking the trip to hospital. This is certainly not advised.
One thing a lot of people do not know about whiplash is that it takes a while to develop – this can be a few hours, a few days, or sometimes even longer. Therefore, while you may feel fine after the crash – just a little shaken perhaps, there is every chance that you will feel a lot worse a few days later. This is why you are advised to see a medical professional as soon as possible, so that you can nip the problem in the bud.
Not only are you advised to see a doctor for your health, but also this is also important when it comes to making a personal injury claim. You will struggle to find any solicitor that will take on your case if you have not seen a medical professional. And, those who do are more than likely just trying to take your money, even though they know that your case is exceptionally weak.
Why is it so important to see a doctor for my case? Well, the medical professional you see will put together a medical report. This report will disclose all of the important details about your injuries, i.e. the extent of them, how long they will take to heal, if any treatment is needed, and so on and so forth. This is then used to decipher how much compensation you will get, and, without it, you will find it virtually impossible to prove that you were injured in the first place.
So if you have sustained whiplash in Norway and it was not your fault, give us a call today.
If you have suffered injuries because of an incident that was not your fault, you will be entitled to compensation. To discover a bit more about how compensation is calculated for an accident claim, read on…
First and foremost, it is imperative to stress that every case is different. There are no set amounts in place and it is impossible to guarantee a particular amount of money. Here at Legal Expert, we have a lot of great services for you to take advantage of in order to get an idea of how much you could be entitled to, so all you need to do is give us a call. Nevertheless, nothing is set in stone and it is vital to keep this in mind.
Compensation for any Norway car accident claim is split into two parts. To begin with you have general damages. This is the amount of money you will receive for the suffering you have experienced. It is calculated by looking at the medical report and taking into account the injury you have suffered. How severe is it? How is it going to impact your life? Will there be any long-term effects? These are the sorts of things that will be looked at.
Aside from this, you also have special damages. This is the amount of money you will receive to cover any out of pocket expenses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. This can be loss of income, prescription costs, travel fees and such like. You will need to have proof of these, such as receipts, in order to claim for them.
You should never use a personal injury claims calculator to determine how much you will receive for a road traffic accident in Norway. Such tools only ever provide a very, very rough estimate. Instead, use the table below to find out the average payout for common injuries relating to car crashes. If you do not find your injury, just give us a call.
|Loss of both legs||£211,150 to £247,280|
|Simple Fracture of a Femur||£7,990 to £12,350|
|Minor Brain or Head Injury||£1,940 to £11,200|
|Severe back injury||£79,890 to £141,150|
|Severe ankle injury||£27,450 to £43,900|
|Minor neck injury, recovery in 3 months||Up to £2,150|
|Severe neck injury||In the region of £130,060|
