Express Solicitors secures £3,750 Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority payout
Mary Ann Stillie was simply walking past an argument at a pub in Larkhall, Lanarkshire, one evening when one of the aggressors kicked out at her and broke her shoulder.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Mary Ann, “I was just walking past the pub minding my own business when I was assaulted. I was taken to hospital and given x-rays that showed my shoulder had been broken.
“I approached Express Solicitors who pursued a claim for me through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and the claim was settled before it actually went to Court.
“My claim was handled well and I was surprised at how quickly it was settled. My solicitor even succeeded in getting my compensation increased due to the fact that I suffered a disability to my arm.
“I hope nothing like this ever happens to me again in my life time, but if it should I would definitely turn again to Express Solicitors.”
Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is the government body responsible for administering the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme in England, Scotland and Wales. It provides a free service to people who are physically or mentally injured because they are blameless victims of violent crime or criminal assault, recognising their suffering and giving them some financial support that may help them move on.
