What is a criminal injury?
A criminal injury is an injury that has been suffered as part of a criminal act. As with all personal injury claims, your personal injury solicitor will need to prove that you were injured as a result of a criminal act.
Then they will help you to make a claim from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. There is a sliding scale of compensation pay-outs and the more serious injuries tend to get the highest pay outs.
What will Accident Advice Helpline do for me?
Your personal injury solicitor will help you with all of the paperwork and make sure that you submit your claim correctly so that you get the compensation that you so rightly deserve.
How common are criminal injury claims?
Not that common! In fact, there was a 12% fall in injuries from violent incidents in 2013, and around 235,000 people were treated following a violent attack in 2013 – which is a massive 32,800 fewer than in the previous year. It has been suggested that this fall is associated with the rising cost of alcohol and the fall in people’s disposable incomes.
What sort of serious injuries in Dartington can I claim for?
You can claim for the full range of injuries. For example, many violent crimes result in head injuries and these can be very serious indeed. They can leave the victim with life threatening or life changing symptoms that can devastate a whole family. Severe cuts from broken glass and broken limbs and ribs have also been reported following attacks in the street.
