Being a victim of criminal violence is an extremely distressing experience and the lasting effects of an attack can change your life forever. If you’ve been injured in a violent crime then you may be eligible to make a criminal injury compensation claim.
Claim if You’ve been Injured in an Assault or Violent Crime
The scars from an injury inflicted in a violent crime are often more than just physical and can have consequences for the family and loved ones of the victim too. Carter Law’s criminal injuries solicitors can help victims and their families come to terms with and get compensation for the physical and psychological damage caused by an attack.
Our Solicitors will Help You Claim Compensation for a Criminal Injury
We understand that following an attack, it can be difficult asking for help and even harder recounting the details. Our specially trained criminal injury solicitors have years of experience helping people achieve a positive outcome. We’ll handle your claim with the sensitivity and respect you deserve, whilst building the strongest possible case, so we can reach the outcome that is best for you and your family. We’ll help you claim compensation for your criminal injury that will allow you to rebuild your life.
The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) pays awards of compensation and as such, it doesn’t matter whether the offender was convicted or even charged with an offence. If you have sustained a physical or mental injury, you may be able to make a claim for criminal injuries.
There are a number of criteria that must be met in order to make a criminal injury claim, including reporting the incident to the police, but our team can guide you through the entire process and will never pressure you into any action you feel uncomfortable with. At every stage of the process, your wellbeing is our number one priority as we work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Our specialist team will work with you and CICA to secure the best financial settlement possible and if you require specialist medical treatment or rehabilitation, we can offer help and advice to aid your recovery. Your settlement will help to cover loss of earnings and the cost of ongoing care and support.
