Criminal Injury Compensation Secured Following Attack

Our team of dedicated personal injury solicitors recently secured criminal injury compensation for a client who was injured in an unprovoked attack while at work.

Incident

On the day of the incident, the claimant had intended to car share with a colleague – the defendant – on their morning journey to work. However, when our client arrived at their colleague’s house, they were not ready to leave.

Our client then called his employer to enquire as to what actions should be taken next. The Claimant was told to continue to work without his colleague, so he did.

Attack

On the journey to their place of work, our client received a threatening text from the defendant that read:

“Watch what happens.”

That same day, the Defendant approached our client at their place of work, and proceeded to physically attack them. The claimant was head butted, punched and kicked in the face by the defendant.

Injuries

As a result our client sustained lacerations to his face above his eye which required four stitches, as well as losing a tooth. Four other teeth were also damaged in the attack and extensive dental care was needed.

Successful outcome

On this occasion Hampson Hughes Solicitors secured a total of £608 in criminal injury compensation for our client.

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).

If you would like expert advice on this type of case, contact Hampson Hughes Solicitors today. Call 0800 888 6 888 or email claims@hampsonhughes.comm.
