- Criminal injuries
Many of us have been a victim of aggression or Criminal Injuries. One of the most common types is battery. People who are hurt are often worried about reporting the incident to the police or, because of the stress do not know they can claim compensation for the assault.
Can I claim compensation?
The victim of the assault has to comply with following criteria:
- he or she cannot be the person who provoked a fight;
- he or she suffered physical or psychological injuries;
- the incident happened within the last 2 years;
- he or she cannot have criminal convictions.
What you should do if you are a victim of an assault:
- You should report the incident to the police immediately (within 24 hours).
- You should also report to your doctor every even minor pain or injury which is a result of the assault.
What kind of financial help is the injured person entitled to?
The injured person, being a resident of Great Britain can apply for financial help or compensation in connection with the incident from following sources:
Social security, or so-called benefits. If the victim of an assault cannot work and has to take sick leave, he or she can apply for financial support from the Job Centre.
If a victim has a private insurance policy which also covers injuries suffered as a result of an accident and it was taken out before the event he or she can claim compensation. In this case the victim of the assault should contact their insurance company with which the insurance policy was taken out as soon as possible (within 14 days).
Directly from the attacker
A victim has to take into consideration that he or she has to incur the costs connected with initiating and conducting the case. An injured person has a right to apply for damages from the attacker. Such a person should make sure that the attacker has sufficient funds to pay the due amount and to cover any legal costs incurred by the injured person.
