Did you know that you can make a compensation claim Norbury (or one anywhere else in the British Isles) if you have been the victim of an unprovoked assault? For example, if you were mugged while in a phone box and had not in any way antagonized your attackers, you could file a compensation claim Norbury. You need to file a claim for injuries suffered in a criminal assault within two years of the crime being committed.
How to Make a Compensation Claim in Norbury
If you have had an accident which was not your fault in which you sustained an injury, you may be able to file a compensation claim in Norbury (or one based elsewhere in the UK and Northern Ireland). You need to file a compensation claim for personal injury within three years of the accident. You can also claim compensation in Norbury, for example, within three years of being diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease.
Compensation for victim of crime
If you have been seriously injured in a crime, a mugging for example, and you had done absolutely nothing to provoke the attack, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. You need to report the incident to the police and have a crime reference number and the contact details of the police officer who is dealing with your case. You will also be required to give the contact details of the doctor who treated you for your injuries. If you know your assailant you need to give their name and address too.
You can claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.
You may want to hire the services of an accident solicitor to help with such a claim as the legal process can be prolonged and you would need expert advice.
