Bolsover accident claim solicitors
The streets of Bolsover can be dangerous at night and although it’s far from being a crime capital of the UK there are all sorts of petty issues that happen from time to time. Sometimes these are just scuffles, but in a few cases, they can be significantly more serious. This article will help you decide when you need to take action and how.
Criminal injury cases
Criminal injuries can be difficult because although you may have been injured and the accident was not your fault, it is not always possible to lay hands on the person who was responsible for the injury. So if you’ve been hurt in an attack and the police haven’t tracked down the assailant, where can you go for compensation?
To help people like you who are in this situation, the government created the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. They will assess any cases that come their way and if you are deemed not to have been at fault for your injury then they will compensate you accordingly.
How they are assessed
In basic terms, criminal injury compensation is calculated in the same way as other types of compensation. They will look at whether or not you have been injured badly enough to require compensation and how much this has cost you in terms of money spent and money not received, such as through lost earnings. This will then enable them to come up with a figure which they feel is appropriate.
Complications arise in those instances where you could be said to have provoked the accident. If this happens you will be considered to have been at least partially responsible for the accident in which case this may well affect the amount of compensation to which you should be entitled to.
Because this is a complex case, you need to find Bolsover accident claim solicitors who have the specialist expertise required to cope with it. At Accident Advice Helpline we can find people like this who will ensure you get full justice for your case.
However, we cannot guarantee success which is why it’s always important to find Bolsover accident claim solicitors who can work on the basis of 100% no-win, no-fee. This means that if you don’t win your case, you won’t have to pay a single penny.
