Making A Criminal Injury Claim in Bolton
Criminal injury law can be highly complex. Because of this, it is a good idea that you have a lawyer on your side who can be trusted to win you the maximum amount of compensation for your specific circumstances.
Compensation for criminal injuries can range from anything between £1,000 and £500,000 depending on how severe your personal injuries are, and how much of an impact they have had on your life and future.
Before looking to make a criminal injury claim, it is important that you have considered these three simple criteria:
- That the incident you are looking to claim for occurred in the UK
- That the incident you are looking to claim for occurred within the last two years – if the offence happened out with this window, you are no longer eligible to claim compensation
- Most importantly, that the incident you are looking to claim for was reported to the police straight after it happened. Any unnecessary delay in the reporting of the incident will invalidate your claim for compensation.
In addition to meeting these basic criteria, it is also helpful for your lawyer if you retain any evidence of your incident that you can. Evidence can make a huge difference to your final compensation settlement.
Anything from police reports to evidence of time taken off work will be useful for your criminal injury lawyer. Even something as simple as receipts of painkillers purchased after the assault can stand as robust evidence to support your claim.
