Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

A man has received compensation after suffering a serious brain injury during an assault. After the attack he managed to secure the maximum award of compensation available under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.

Andrew, who does not wish to disclose his last name, had been serving as an army medic at the time of the assault. He was attacked while leaving a pub. He sustained damage to his brain and as a result of this has been unable to work since the attack.

He first applied to for compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme on his own. However, his claim was refused on the basis that he had provoked the attack. He then hired a lawyer to appeal the decision. The Appeals Panel held that the original decision was wrong and that although Andrew was partially responsible for the attack, he was still entitled to compensation on a 50% basis. Due to the extremely serious nature of his injury, he was entitled to the maximum payout of £500,000.
