Claiming Compensation for a Criminal Injury

We are experienced in making Criminal Injuries Compensation claims.

If you have been the victim of an assault or any type of violent crime, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation.

Psychological injury can also include people who were not the primary victim of physical contact usabuse, but someone who witnessed a violent crime and has suffered psychological injury as a result.

Please contact us to speak to one of our experienced personal injury solicitors who will assess your claim.

What is No win – No fee?

Your solicitor may take your case on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis. With his type of agreement your solicitor assumes the risk of not winning the case. If you lose, your solicitor does not get paid and you will not be liable for any legal fees.
