Rise in Terrorism Attacks Increase Number of Serious Injury Compensation Claims

On the 22nd of May 2017, an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena was the centre of a UK terrorism attack. A suicide bomber entered the arena, killing 22 people and injuring 120, including children. UK terrorist attacks have claimed the lives of innocent people as well as causing significant injuries and psychological trauma to those who were injured or affected. Families and loved ones of victims are also hugely affected with some having to become carers for their loved ones as well as having to deal with the psychological trauma a terrorist attack can have on families.

Over the past decade 9 terrorist attacks have been recorded in the UK, including the Manchester Arena bombing. The month after the Manchester attack, on the 3rd of June 2017, 8 people were killed and at least 48 injured when a white van drove at high speed across London Bridge running over pedestrians. The occupants then ran to nearby Borough Market to attack more people. Sadly, the threat of an international terrorist attack to the UK, including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland is severe, and although the chances of being in a terrorist attack are slim, the fear is still prominent. (2) Yet, the UK is not the only target for terrorism.

France, Spain, Sweden and Tunisia have all been targeted in recent attacks, resulting in mass casualties. According to gov.uk (1),  if you’ve been a victim of a terrorist attack abroad since the 27th of November 2012, you may be able to claim compensation if:

  • You were injured physically or mentally
  • You were a witness to a specific act of terrorism where a loved one was injured
  • You’re the partner or close family member of someone killed in a specific act of terrorism.

The pain and suffering caused as a result of a terrorist attack can never truly be compensated for, but the financial implications that an injury has had on your career or working life can be. If a terrorist attack targets a public space, venue or business premises, there will be insurance in place to provide financial support to victims in the event of a terrorist attack and if you have been injured or a loved one has been hurt, you have the right to claim.

We are representing victims of the Manchester bombings and we are offering them our legal services and expertise at no cost, so that they can get compensation for the injuries occurred or the financial loss that has happened as a direct or indirect result of the attack.

Despite the attack taking place over 5 months ago, some victims of the Manchester Arena bombings are yet to make a claim for compensation and are suffering in silence. We urge anyone who has been affected and suffered an injury as a result of a UK terrorist attack to contact our dedicated legal team today and find out how we can support you in submitting a claim. Call 0151 236 1222 or visit our site for more information.
