City centre violence causes life changing injuries

A man has been seriously injured following an assault in a city centre during the early hours of Saturday morning. The assault took place outside a nightclub whereby the victim was seen to collapse shortly after. He was initially taken to the city Hospital but has since been transferred to a specialist hospital for trauma, where his condition is described as critical.

Investigating officer said: “I would specifically like to appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of the nightclub at around the time this incident took place.

“Last night was a busy night in the run up to Christmas and we know through CCTV footage that there were a number of people in the area when this incident took place and I would like to appeal to them to ask them to come forward to allow us to progress with our investigation.”

Criminal injury is more common than you think. Altercations can happen at night in pubs and clubs as well as road rage incidents. If you have been a victim of another person’s violent outburst then don’t just put up with it and accept it. Physical assault is not to be taken lightly and if you have been assaulted whilst at work, or at any other time, then you could be entitled to make a criminal injury compensation claim.
