My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Are you asking whether you can make a compensation claim?
You can make a claim for compensation through the government agency called the criminal injuries compensation authority. The service is free of charge and all you have to do is make a claim online and supply all the information about the injury and also give them permission to contact your Doctor or hospital. Here is the website: https://www.gov.uk/claim-compensation-criminal-injury
You must cooperate fully with the authority and also with the police who will be investigating this matter; you must also notify the authority of any changes in your claim and allow them to check your background. You don't need a solicitor to help you with your claim but if you did instruct a solicitor they would probably take a percentage of your claim usually up to 30%.
