Acid Attack Compensation Claims

Acid attacks are a devastatingly violent crime which can cause terrible suffering, serious disfigurement, long-term health issues or even death. Sadly, these highly-personal assaults are on the rise in the UK.

For the innocent victims of these attacks, where acid or corrosive substances are thrown onto the face or body of another person, the consequences are horrifying. Depending on the type of acid and quantity used, these attacks can result in permanent scarring, tissue damage, extreme pain, blindness, deafness and long-term breathing difficulties.

Even everyday tasks such as eating or drinking, going to work or appearing in public can prove distressing. The psychological effects can also cause catastrophic mental distress, meaning the overall health and well-being of victims can be detrimentally affected.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an acid attack, it may be possible to seek legal redress for any pain or suffering caused.

How much will my claim cost?

If you would like to make an acid attack compensation claim, Hudgell Solicitors can give you access to justice without any financial risks.

Innocent victims are entitled to lodge a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), a Government-funded body which ensures blameless survivors of crime are suitably compensated for their ordeal. In certain circumstances a claim for loss of earnings can be made.

FAQs

How can you help me with my acid attack compensation claim?
Innocent victims of acid attacks are left with physical and psychological scars, which they may never fully recover from and they may be left unable to work as a result. This can have a detrimental effect on the rest of their lives. In most cases, survivors have to deal with permanent scarring and the reaction of other people to their appearance. Unsurprisingly, this can lead to symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) being displayed. It is also common to suffer from anxiety, depression, flashbacks, panic attacks and nightmares. If you have suffered physically or mentally as the result of an acid attack, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Whilst no amount of money can ever turn back the clock or heal the scars, the money you receive can help you to access therapy or counselling to help you cope better in the future. Compensation could also help you pay for ongoing care and medical treatments, or loss of earnings. The amount of acid attack compensation received will depend largely on the severity of any injuries and the circumstances in which they were sustained and whether you qualify for a loss of earnings payment but you could be entitled to compensation ranging from £1,000 to £500,000 through a CICA claim. For families and individuals who struggle to cope both financially and physically, a settlement can help to alleviate stress so victims can focus on their recovery.
