Have you been injured as a result of a crime?
When you’ve sustained criminal injuries, you may just want to focus on recovering from your initial symptoms. If you’ve suffered broken bones, for example, you may be keen to seek medical help so that you can receive the appropriate treatment and get out of pain.
In the days after the incident, you may not give much thought to the long term effects of criminal injuries but this is something you will need to consider. Whilst your physical injuries may heal relatively quickly, the emotional and financial impact of a crime could be long-lasting.
If you need to take time off work to recover, for example, you could face losing some or all of your income. Serious injuries could even prevent you from returning to work at all and this could leave you with financial worries.
Coping with the long term effects of criminal injuries
Although the thought of dealing with the long term effects of criminal injuries can be worrying, we can help. If you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s conduct, they should be held responsible and you should be able to take action against them.
If they’ve broken the law, they should face prosecution and it’s likely that the police will launch an investigation. However, you could take legal action as well.
By making a compensation claim against the person responsible for your injuries, you could ensure that you don’t lose out financially as a result of what’s happened.
How much compensation could you obtain?
In most instances, the amount of compensation you will receive will depend on your injuries but the expenses surrounding the incident will be taken into account too. If you’re unable to work, for example, you could claim back the cost of lost income.
