Arson is the act of deliberately setting fire to something. This could be a car, a property or anything else that the arsonist wants to set fire to. Thankfully, such acts are very rare, but some people have been unfortunate enough to have been caught in a property when an arsonist sets fire to it. This horrific and frightening situation could potentially lead to arson compensation being paid to someone who has been caught in these circumstances.
It is possible to receive compensation for injuries received in an arson attack. This type of case is taken forward with a claim via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). You would benefit from hiring a solicitor who has experience of handling claims for compensation with the CICA, because they will be familiar with how to proceed and will give your pursuit of compensation its best chance of success.
How much arson compensation might be paid?
Injuries can be so diverse, it is impossible to ascertain the exact amount any one individual might receive, no matter how they were hurt. This applies to victims of arson attacks just as much as it does to victims of car accidents and accidents at work.
It also makes it clearer to understand how important it is to seek expert advice. While there are many solicitors working in the UK, not all of them handle personal injury compensation claims. It is also much easier to move ahead with help with a specialised solicitor who has handled all kinds of accident and injury claims in the past. You’ll know more about the process if you speak to someone with this type of experience behind them, and we will be happy to give you all the advice you need, free of any charge or obligation.
