Accident solicitor in Bourne


If you or a close relative have been the victim of a crime and suffered an injury as a result, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. If a fatal injury occurred, then the remaining spouse, partner or child may be eligible to claim compensation. Any such compensation payment would be expected to cover the funeral costs as well as compensation for the loss.

To qualify to make a criminal injuries claim, the crime must have happened in Scotland, England or Wales and the injury must be serious enough for you to expect upwards of £1000 in damages. You will also need a crime reference number from the police and you must be able to prove that you did not provoke an attack in any way. In other words, if you were involved in a fight and provoked your assailant in any way, you would not qualify for compensation. You may be able to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), but you will need the services of an accident solicitor in Bourne, or one elsewhere to do this.
