Are you making a no win no fee Derby claim because you’ve been injured by an act of vandalism?
When people commit crime, they often have a specific aim in mind. If, for example, someone tries to mug you or burgle your home, they may be intending to steal your possessions or your money. Similarly, if someone commits a violent assault, they may be intending to harm or kill their victim. However, not all crimes have such an obvious motive. When people commit acts of vandalism, they may simply be acting in a destructive manner or they may think that their conduct is funny or amusing.
The term vandalism can cover a wide range of behaviours. It is sometimes used to refer to pettier crimes, such as graffiti, minor criminal damage or verbal assaults. However, whilst the perpetrator may not actually intend to harm anyone, they can easily do so. If, for example, someone vandalises your car, they may not simply damage the appearance of the vehicle. They could also damage the mechanics which could mean that the care is now unsafe to drive. If you don’t realise this and you attempt to use the vehicle, you could suffer an injury or become involved in a collision, as a result.
Similarly, if people were to throw stones or bricks at cars, this could cause a multiple car collision. There have even been reports of drivers being killed after being struck by bricks thrown from a motorway bridge.
When people commit these sorts of acts, they are often held responsible for the consequences, even if they did not intend them. If you’ve been harmed because of an act of vandalism you could, therefore go on to make a no win no fee Derby compensation claim.
