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.
