Claiming compensation for criminal injury in Broad Green
If you’ve suffered illness or injury after being victim of a violent crime in Broad Green you may be eligible to claim financial compensation for your suffering. It can be extremely distressing, sometimes even resulting in lifelong damage to the victim.
As well as the obvious psychological and physical damage, innocent victims often find that other areas of their life are negatively impacted too, including at work, socially and financially. While financial compensation cannot undo what has happened, it can help to ease financial worries and achieve closure afterwards.
Here at Wafer Phillips, our team of solicitors will do everything they can to make the process of claiming compensation simple and stress-free. We also operate a no-win, no-fee policy, allowing you to pursue your claim without financial risk.
