Our system of justice is based on an assumption that all but the most serious of criminals who have committed the most heinous of crimes are capable of being rehabilitated and at one time of another released back into society. However, there are a some offences that are considered so serious that the people who commit them are given whole life terms with no prospect of parole.
But just because these people have committed crimes that most right-thinking people would consider to be abhorrent, it doesn’t mean that they lose their right to be protected from being injured in an accident that was not their fault while serving their sentence.
All prisoners have the right to seek Deganwy accident at work compensation if they are injured in an accident that was not their fault while they are incarcerated, which is only right and proper. We as a country should be proud that we extend the same rights to prisoners in this respect as we do to the rest of the population.
If you’ve been injured while serving a sentence in a prison or a young offenders institution, there will be a chance that you might well be able to take some form of 100% no win no fee* personal injury action against the Prison Service in a bid to win Deganwy accident at work compensation.
Prison claims and Deganwy accident at work compensation
If you do want to take action after suffering an injury in an accident that was not your fault at prison, it will be worth bearing in mind that you will typically have three years from the date when your accident took place to get things moving. If you are going to be released in this time, you might want to wait until you are free. If not, you would be well advised to get on with things now.
The amount of Deganwy accident at work compensation you might win will be very much dependent on the nature of your injuries and the precise circumstances surrounding your accident. Slipping and fracturing your skull on a puddle of water might attract a larger pay-out than suffering a bruised wrist after catching it in a bin that had a broken hinge.
