Work highlights

  • Successfully representing a victim of a stabbing in a criminal injury compensation claim. An application was made on behalf of the client against the decision of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) who had originally assessed the client’s scarring as ‘not significant’ and therefore awarded a sum much lower than that which was later secured by Holmes & Hills personal injury solicitors.
