Claim against a burglar

Being burgled is one of the most distressing things that can happen to you, and if you have been injured during a burglary then you could find yourself eligible to make a claim against a burglar.

For example, if you tripped during the incident and broke your leg or fell downstairs and injured your back, you could have a viable claim and the burglar could be held liable for your injuries. In situations like this, it’s important to make sure you get the right advice to meet your needs.

This is where Accident Advice Helpline comes in. We can help you make a no win no fee claim after your burglary, so even if you are suffering financially, you can afford to claim compensation with us.

How to make a claim against a burglar

The first step towards making any claim is to contact a personal injury lawyer for advice. Ideally, you want to choose a lawyer with experience handling personal injury claims.

All of Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers have experience in the industry and we have been helping people claim compensation since the year 2000. This means you know you’re in good hands and you don’t need to worry about your claim as we’ll support you every step of the way.

If you’re concerned about going to court after your accident, there’s no need to lose sleep. Most claims can be processed over the phone, so going to court is unlikely.

You’re entitled to make a claim against a burglar if you have been injured in any way during a burglary. However, it’s important to seek advice as soon as possible after your accident, as there is a three-year time limit in place for all claims.

How much compensation could you get for a claim against a burglar?

At Accident Advice Helpline, we process all claims on an individual basis, so it’s hard for us to tell you exactly how much compensation you could get. However, you could claim compensation for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings if you’ve taken time off work.

The amount you receive could be substantial if you have suffered serious, life-changing injuries, such as head injuries. You can get an idea of how much you could claim by taking the 30-second test™ on our website.
