    Police compensation advice


    Have you been involved in an accident and are now seeking police compensation advice? You may have been caught up in a situation that was not your fault, or the police may have mistreated you while you were in their care. You may even have been an innocent bystander during a police raid and have suffered an injury due to their actions. You may have had perfectly good intentions in raising the alarm while witnessing a criminal activity and the result of that has landed you in hospital. Whatever the injury you suffered, if it was not your fault, if it happened in the last three years and meant you needed medical attention, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.

    Who do I claim against?

    We all know that the police are meant to look out for us. Many policemen and women throughout the country are honourable, highly principled individuals, whose only concern is doing a good day’s work looking out for public law and order. However, if you have suffered an injury due to a police operation or you were wrongly assaulted, you may be in line for compensation. The police who caused your injury may not have intended to do so, and they may have had perfectly honourable intentions, but you have to live with the result. If you are not happy about it, explore what you can do by calling Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 180 4 123.
