Pro bono opportunity: Financial compensation for assault

Pro Bono Connect (which connects barristers and solicitors working together on pro bono cases) is urgently looking for a solicitor to assist a barrister on a case involving financial compensation for assault in respect of which the defendant has been convicted.

The client was the victim of a serious assault for which the defendant was sent to prison for 7 years. There are plainly good grounds to bring a civil claim for financial redress in tort but, without legal assistance, the client will be unable to do so. In particular, the client needs help preparing their own witness statement and instructing a medical expert to provide evidence on his injuries. A barrister is already involved and will continue on the case.

If any firm is potentially interested, please contact [email protected]
