If you have sustained an injury while being subject to unlawful imprisonment then you could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation. Established in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline specialises in giving people the help and wrongful imprisonment injury advice they need to make a claim after suffering this type of trauma.
If you have been the victim of wrongful imprisonment then you will know all too well that the trauma and suffering do not end when you are released. In fact it can continue for weeks, months or even years afterwards. They can have a devastating effect upon people’s trust of authority and can make them fearful of leaving their house, or doing anything that might cause them to have to suffer the same experience again.
The damage that a person can suffer as the result of wrongful imprisonment is often psychological as well as physical. It is therefore important that you get the right medical help to ensure that you are not left with permanent physical or mental scars as the result of your experience.
Responsibility of the authorities
Sending an individual to prison is a decision that should never be taken lightly as it can be harmful to their professional life, as well as their personal life. Imprisonment can lead to people losing their job, even though they are later shown to be innocent. The damage has already been done and it is impossible for them to simply carry on as they had before. Your life cannot be the same after being wrongfully imprisoned, however, we make it our job to help get you back on your feet and into normality.
Our expert solicitors are able to help guide you through the potential that you have to make a claim, as well as what you need to do in order to give your claim the best possible chance of being successful.

The compensation you receive can be claimed for a variety of different reasons: loss of earnings as the result of wrongful imprisonment, the legal costs which you have been left with even after you have been released and the other fees and costs that can come with this set of circumstances.
