The fallout from the Court of Appeal’s decision in Balajigari & others […]
Since 2008, we’ve established a strong reputation for excellence in
immigration, asylum, human rights and unlawful detention.
Detention is a life changing experience that causes shock and humiliation initially, and results in long term impacts that affect people differently. Some can be traumatized to such an extent that they develop mental health difficulties. The conditions of detention are often very poor, and the uncertainty as to the length of immigration detention is particularly difficult to deal with. Added to all this is the threat hanging over the detainees head that he/she could be removed from the UK at any time.
Many people understandably want to hold the government to account for their detention and claim compensation. If you want to explore this, we are able to represent you on the basis of a conditional fee agreement that means that you will not have to pay for our services unless your claim is successful.
We have many years of experience with such claims for damages. This includes claims for damages by way of judicial review, claims at the County Court, and claims at the High Court. Many of our clients have successfully claims tens of thousands of pounds in compensation for their unjust and unlawful detention by the Home Office.
The limitation period for claiming damages for unlawful detention is six years. If you have been detained within the past six years, contact us for a free assessment of your claim.
At CPC, we believe in lawful treatment for all, regardless of immigration status.
We have secured some of the biggest damages awards against the Home Office:
We are able to represent on a CFA basis (conditional fee agreement) so that you will not have to pay anything for our services unless you are successful in securing damages.
