Do you need to contact Penicuik accident claim solicitors after being hurt by someone who has consumed alcohol?
Although many people enjoy having one or two alcoholic drinks when they socialise with friends or family on a night out, it isn’t always sensible to have too many. Unfortunately, when people drink too much alcohol, it can change their personality somewhat and they may behave in a manner which is out of character. As alcohol tends to lower people’s inhibitions, they may become more aggressive or take dangerous risks that they would normally avoid.
Unfortunately, people can sometimes suffer from unprovoked assaults simply because the person responsible has consumed too much alcohol. If you have been hurt in this way, you may have called the police due to the severity of the incident. Although the person responsible may be drunk, they can still be charged with assault, aggravated bodily harm or grievous bodily harm, depending on the type of injuries you sustained, and they may also be charged with an offence such as ‘breach of the peace’ or being ‘drunk and disorderly’.
Even if someone hasn’t been charged with a criminal offence, you could still make a compensation claim against them with Penicuik accident claim solicitors if you can show that they were responsible for the injuries you sustained. Providing Penicuik accident claim solicitors can successfully prove that others caused your injuries, you could be awarded a significant amount of compensation.
