Why would anyone need solicitors in Boughton Aluph?
If you have been injured in any kind of accident, which was definitely not your fault, solicitors in Boughton Aluph (for example) could help you build a case to prove this. They could also help if you had been the victim of an attack that you did nothing to provoke.
Solicitors in Boughton Aluph could also be of service if you were diagnosed with an illness that could be proven to have been caused as a result of another person’s negligence.
Making a claim for injuries sustained in a crime
If you were unfortunate enough to have been assaulted while a crime was happening, you can claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), if the crime was committed in England, Wales or Scotland. The crime should have been reported to the police, but whether or not your assailant was found and prosecuted, you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim through the CICA. However, you have only two years from the date of the crime to file a claim.
You can simply download a form from the CICA website and fill it in yourself, without the aid of a solicitor, but it would probably be best to hire an expert criminal injuries solicitor to assist you, as the claims’ process can be long and complicated and if you were made an offer of compensation, you would need to know if it were reasonable or not. If you wanted to appeal against any decision made by the CICA, you would also probably need legal representation.
