Parwaze suffered multiple injuries as a consequence of being assaulted and the extent of his injuries meant that he couldn’t deal with the claim himself
Our clients injuries included a head and associated brain injury which resulted in him being unable to handle the claim himself and so solicitor, Maureen Collison was appointed to manage the claim on his behalf.
How we helped Parwaze
Due to his assailant having no means to pay compensation a claim was submitted to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Personal Injury claims executive, Alasdair Wannan dealt with the claim at the request of Maureen. In working out how much compensation the CICA should pay Parwaze we had to value the claim for them which included instructing a number of medical and care experts and Counsel (Barrister). After the claim was valued the CICA agreed to pay out their maximum award of £500,000. As the claim settled by agreement, the case did not have to go through the CICA appeal process.
It was a long process to settle the CICA claim for Parwaze. I was impressed with the thoroughness and perseverance Alasdair showed in assembling all the medical and other experts to value all aspects of the claim. I was happy to follow his advice to accept the maximum award under the Scheme to avoid the lengthy and expensive CICA appeal process
