Our solicitors specialise in representing people who have suffered injury – either physical or psychological – as a result of a violent crime.
Gotelee is a recognised local expert in handling personal injury cases. Our solicitors have many years’ experience of pursuing compensation cases quickly and effectively.
Victims of violent crime, who have suffered an injury as a result, have the right to claim damages against the individual or individuals responsible, even if they haven’t been charged or caught. In reality, however, it is often the case that the identity of that person won’t be known or, if it is, they may not have the funds or assets to pay any compensation anyway. In those cases a claim can be made to the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA), a government body set up to compensate victims of violent crime who would otherwise be unable to recover damages.
Awards by CICA are paid according to a tariff set by parliament and subject to criteria that must be met in order to bring a claim.
We are happy to advise you about your possible personal injury claim for compensation. We offer a fully insurance protected No-Win No-Fee conditional fee agreement and will explain the best options available for funding your claim.
We will investigate your case quickly and help you concerning your entitlement to compensation and assistance. If possible we will obtain an interim payment of damages for you.
