Our team of dedicated personal injury solicitors in Liverpool recently secured criminal injury compensation for a client who was injured in an unprovoked attack, resulting in £15,000 compensation.
The incident occurred as our client was at a local recycling centre dropping off an old fridge when he was attacked with an iron bar. The client suffered from injuries to his head with cuts and bruises to his face and a black eye.
The medical expert who examined our client for the purposes of the claim recommended that he was to be further referred for psychological treatment.
Also included within the criminal injury settlement were claims for loss of earnings due to the time the client had to take off work.
Commenting after their case was settled, our client said:
“I am very pleased with the outcome of my claim, the full circle service I received from Hampson Hughes was excellent”.
Criminal injury compensation – expert advice
Criminal injury compensation may be available if you have experienced physical trauma or psychological trauma as a result of a violent crime. Speaking to a member of our team about your criminal injury may be the first time that you have spoken to anybody about your experience – this is common among our clients. We guarantee complete confidentiality throughout your criminal injury claim.
We understand that if you have been subjected to an act of violence, your thoughts will turn to making a full recovery – compensation will likely be the last thing on your mind.
There is, however, a government scheme that provides compensation to those who have been victims of violent crime. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is governed by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
