Experienced Solicitors in Boroughbridge


Boroughbridge is a small town in north Yorkshire, between London and Edinburgh on the Great North Road.

In the days when the means of transport was a horse, carriage or stage coach, travel was fraught with dangers. There were highwaymen who would steal whatever valuables they could, and of course, bad weather sometimes made roads impassable, as they became a quagmire. If you had been travelling on a coach and robbed, you may have been pistol-whipped by the highwayman, even though you had done nothing to provoke him. In those days, you could not have made a personal injury compensation claim against him, nor would there have been solicitors to help you if the highwayman had been caught. Also you wouldn’t have been able to make a claim for the injuries you suffered while a crime was in progress through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

Experienced Solicitors in Boroughbridge

Today things are different, and experienced solicitors in Boroughbridge can help you if you have a valid injury compensation claim to make. If you have been injured in an accident, solicitors, for example, could help you prove that it was not your fault. Experienced solicitors in Boroughbridge  could also help prove that the illness you were recently diagnosed with was caused by someone else’s negligence.

Claiming through the CICA

If you have been the victim of an act of violence which you did nothing to provoke, you may be eligible to make a claim for your injuries through the CICA. You have two years from the date of the crime in which to do so. The crime should have been reported to the police and they should have given you a unique crime reference number. You should also have received medical treatment for your injuries.

You can download a form from the CICA website and fill it in to make your claim. However, as the process of claiming through the CICA can be complicated (as well as lengthy) you would be well-advised to hire the services of an experienced criminal injuries solicitor who will work on a no win, no fee* basis.
