Manchester- The Town of The Bee
Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to say how proud Nayyars Solicitors are as a firm of our hometown Manchester. The love, spirit and resilience this City has shown makes it the only place most of us could ever call home.
In the last couple of months several incidents have occurred, which have affected each one of us in different ways; yet we all stood together and have come out even stronger on the other side.
Since this terrorist attack at the Arena, The Manchester Evening News have raised over £3m, this includes crowdfunding and the celebrity-filled One Love Concert. To help victims and victims’ family further, Manchester Law Society launched a pro bono scheme to help victims seek free legal advice and assistance.
As a team, Nayyars Solicitors have joined the Manchester Law Society Panel of Solicitors who are providing legal help. When the Law Society introduced this concept, we knew that this was a perfect opportunity to provide our services to those who are very vulnerable now and ensure that the victims are properly represented without the worry about legal fees.
Our Ayesha Nayyar gave the following statement to the Press following the events “As a Mancunian the events have shaken us to the core. Our prayers and thoughts are with the families of those who were killed, injured or were affected in any way including the emergency services who did everything they could in an impossible situation. This City will come back fighting and just as we did after the IRA bomb in 1996 and we will not be defeated. Even though our hearts may have been broken they will never break our spirit.”
A Claim can be made via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority Scheme (CICA). This Scheme helps those that have suffered because of a ‘blameless act of violence’. To successfully bring a claim to the CICA, the victim must meet certain criteria’s. However if each criteria is met, then the victim can bring a claim to the CICA.
Nayyars specialises in other areas of law, we are able to assist in matters involving administration of estates and family law and not only personal injury. To benefit from this pro-bono scheme, please visit the Manchester Law Society website and complete the online form. You may specifically ask for Nayyars Solicitors to act for you and we endeavour to do our best to contact you.
As a fellow Mancunian, I can vouch for everyone and say that the Arena attack has left an impact on us. This incident has occurred too close to home and we would like to do everything possible to give back to the community. Whether you have been directly or indirectly affected by the attack, Nayyars Solicitors can provide legal assistance.
