Who can make a criminal injury compensation claim?
Anyone who has been the victim of a violent crime can apply for a Criminal Injury Compensation Claim. The offender does not have to be convicted nor in some circumstances even identified.
Innocent victims of violent crimes have been able to claim compensation ever since the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority Scheme was established in 1964.
The compensation scheme is a government-funded body. It was set up to compensate victims of crime and violence in England and Wales. Compensation for criminal injury claims are subject to certain qualifying criteria
If you or a family member have been the victim of any type of violence or physical attack, you must contact the police immediately. This will also help us recover the criminal injury compensation claim you deserve.
At Ringrose Law, we have a specialist department that can help victims of criminal injuries recover compensation awards.
