Has someone intentionally hurt you?
Whilst most injuries are caused accidentally or unintentionally, in some instances it’s possible that someone may, temporarily, intend to cause harm. If, for example, someone was to assault you or harm you in some way, there is action that you can take.
In this situation, you’ll probably want to contact the police immediately so that they can apprehend the perpetrator and prevent you from any further injuries. The person responsible may then be charged with a criminal offence and they could be forced to go to court in order to be held accountable for their actions.
Although the court may punish them for what they have done, you could still have the option to make a compensation claim against them as well.
Make a compensation claim with an injury solicitor in Lybster
When someone harms you, an injury solicitor in Lybster could help you to make a compensation claim against them. Although it’s likely that an injury solicitor in Lybster will be able to help you to make a compensation claim against someone who has intentionally hurt you, you could also make a claim against someone who hurt you inadvertently.
As long as you can show that they caused your injuries, it’s possible for an injury solicitor in Lybster to ensure that they are held liable, in which case you may be entitled to receive compensation from them.
If you’re considering making a compensation claim with a personal injury solicitor in Lybster, you’ll probably want to know how much your claim is worth or how much compensation you could receive if your claim is successful.
In most cases, the amount of compensation you will receive will depend on how serious your injuries are and how they’ve affected you. If, for example, your injuries have prevented you from working and you’ve lost money as a result, your compensation award may be increased.
