If you have been a victim of a crime of violence in the last 2 years, then we urge you to contact our solicitors. In virtually all cases you will first need to report the offence(s) to the Police and provide a written statement. This is so they can investigate the matter and with your co-operation bring the perpetrator to justice. Even if the person isn’t charged, this should not be a bar to the making of an application.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority investigate the application with the Police and any medical organisations and provide a decision. We are experts in completing forms with all the required information and then providing advice and assistance as the claim proceeds. We also have experience in appearing at Appeal Panel/Tribunal hearings and obtaining substantial amounts by way of compensation. This can be a combination of compensation for the injuries themselves and special expenses and loss of earnings. Injuries that are compensatable include both physical and psychiatric.
We are able to proceed with cases on a privately paying basis, but more commonly on a Contingency Fee Agreement where an agreed percentage of your compensation is payable as your contribution towards our costs for the work done in obtaining the compensation for you. Contact us on 01204 540999.
