When former Prime Minister John Major came to power, he spoke of his vision for a society that was more at ease with itself.
At roughly the same time, a man was standing at a bar ordering a drink. Having paid for his drink, he picked it up, turned around and was then punched in the face, falling to the ground. When he challenged the person who had punched him, that person broke a glass and attacked him further causing painful lacerations, bleeding and a permanent scar. The two people were unknown to each other and neither had provoked the other.
Injuries such as these can cause significant pain, as well as potentially taking their toll on your financial circumstances due to an inability to work properly or expensive medical treatment. In addition, the pain and trauma of the incident can cause mental or emotional distress which may affect the victim, and their loved ones, for some time. At Wrigley Claydon, we brought a successful criminal injuries claim against the attacker, compensating the victim for the injuries he had sustained as a result of this violent crime.
However, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Recently, statistics from the Accident and Emergency Departments across the country reveal that since 2002 the number of casualties seen in relation to violent crimes has reduced year on year, and last year reduced by 12%.
It would appear that John Major’s dream of a society that is more at ease with itself is becoming a reality!
