    Personal Injury Solicitors in Anniesland

    Accident Advice Helpline handle the full range of personal injury claims. As one of the long established law firms in the UK, we have great experience in dealing with many causes of injuries, and that includes one of the most upsetting causes of all – criminal assaults.

    If you have been the victim of a criminal assault in the Anniesland area of Glasgow, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Thankfully, such assaults are rare, but for the unlucky few they can be devastating experiences. An accident solicitor in Anniesland case involving an assault can also result in financial losses for the victim.

    Here are three common categories of this type of claim.

    Personal injury claim

    If you have been injured in any form of accident (including a criminal assault) and the incident was not your fault, you have the right to make a personal injury claim for compensation. You have up to three years to make a claim. In general terms, the more serious injuries get the larger amounts of compensation. However, there is a problem with this type of claim – it is only going to work if the person you are claiming from has the means to pay. If you were mugged in the street, it is unlikely that your attacker will be able to pay compensation.

    Workplace claim

    Some people are assaulted when they are at work. Some victims work in professions that deal with vulnerable members of the public who can lash out. Employers have to assess all risks to health and safety that their employees are exposed to, and that includes the risk of assault. Employers should take measures to reduce these risks. If you can show that your employer did not do this, it may be possible to pursue a claim against your employer or their employer’s liability insurance. A specialist solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline will have experience in judging which types of cases are most likely to be successful.

    Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority

    The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) pay compensation to victims who have been injured in a criminal act. They are sometimes referred to as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board. You have to make a claim within a certain time after the assault taking place, usually two years. The amount of compensation that you will receive is controlled by a fixed ‘tariff’ system. This is a way of calculating a fair compensation and the more serious injuries tend to get the most money.
