Ruthin is a town in Denbighshire, north Wales, the county town in fact, so there may be injury solicitors in Ruthin. Ruthin has what is believed to be the oldest house in Wales, Nantclwyd y Dre in Castle Street, built around 1435 by a local merchant, which has been open to the public since 2007. Its attic rooms now house a colony of Lesser horseshoe bats. Ruthin gaol is now open to the public and serves as an example of a purpose-built Pentonville prison, the only one open to the public. Though it no longer holds any prisoners!
Burglary in Ruthin
An elderly man was taken to hospital after disturbing a burglar at his home in Ruthin in January 2014. He suffered a head injury which, luckily, was not serious. If you have been injured during a crime, and did nothing to provoke the assault, you may be able to file a compensation claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) within two years of the crime being committed. It should have been reported to the police, who will write a report and give you a unique crime reference number. It does not matter if the criminal was caught, you can still make your claim.
Although you do not technically need the services of a solicitor to make your claim, you would be wise to find an experienced criminal injuries solicitor to represent you, as the process can be long and complicated.
The CICA pay a minimum of £1,000 in compensation for injuries, so if you suffered minor cuts and bruises, you may not be able to make a claim through them. The maximum payout is half a million pounds for serious injuries.
