Mr F came to the CICA solicitors at Michael Lewin after he sustained a head injury in a violent crime. Me F was walking past a fight at the back of some shops as he walked past a brick was thrown at him. The incident took him completely by surprise as he was not involved in the fight in any way.
When the brick hit Mr F he was knocked unconscious his head was bleeding and he felt dizzy just before he collapsed. As a result of the attack Mr F had to be taken to A&E via ambulance to have the large laceration on the back of his head glued back together. Mr F now has a two and a half inch long scar on the back of his head.
Mr F had no idea who the people were that were fighting nor was he involved in the fight. You can still make a claim against the CICA if you do not know who it was that caused your injuries.
