Criminal injury claims
Millions of people are the victims of violent crime every year however, many are unaware that they may be entitled to criminal injury compensation. Depending on the circumstances of the attack and the seriousness of the injury, victims can make a claim against their attacker, with many resulting in 4-5 figure settlements.
Criminal injuries can include violent attack and sexual assault, often having long-lasting and traumatic effects for the injured party.
If you have been injured in an unprovoked attack in the UK, there are three types of criminal injury compensation available to you. The first is a claim against the assailant directly, the second is a criminal injury compensation claim against the assailant’s employer (if the attack took place in your working environment) and finally, against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
