No injuries are pleasant. Injuries that are caused by someone else are very unpleasant. However, the most unpleasant injuries of all can be the injuries that are suffered as part of an assault – these can become assault injury compensation cases.
This type of crime is thankfully rare in the UK but still far too many people find themselves in the upsetting position of being assaulted. This leaves them having to deal with both the physical and emotional effects. If they cannot work because of their injuries then they may be suffering financially as well.
Some people who have been assaulted in the Fetcham area are not even aware that they can consult compensation claim solicitors in Fetcham and potentially start a claim for compensation for their injuries. These people would not claim in the same way as someone injured in a car accident or workplace accident where they claim from the person who was at fault for their accident – assault cases are a bit different to this.
Instead, a personal injury solicitor would help them to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority – this is a public agency and there are strict rules and procedures governing how a claim should be made. An assault injury solicitor in Fetcham would help with this.
