    Compensation Claim in Sarn Park

    Top 5 Things You Need To Know About Making a Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim in Sarn Park

    Thousands of people become victims of violent crime every year. If you have been the unfortunate victim of a violent crime, your life will undoubtedly have been affected in some way. However, help could be at hand in the form of compensation. Anyone who has been the victim of a violent crime – including witnesses who were injured- can claim Criminal Injuries Compensation to help them cope with their ordeal and begin to move forward in their lives.

    To aid you with your Criminal Injuries Compensation claim in Sarn Park, Accident Advice Helpline has created a list of  Top 5 things you need to know about making a claim.

     1. There is a Time Limit For Making a Claim

    You must make a claim for criminal injuries compensation within two years of the date you were injured. In some circumstances, the time limit may be increased. Our advisors can give you more information whether any exceptions apply in your case.

    2. The Crime Must have been reported to the police

    It’s essential that the crime is reported to the police. If it has not been reported, you won’t be able to make a criminal injuries compensation claim in Sarn Park.  Also, if you delay in informing the police, your claim could be refused or reduced. Refusing to co-operate with the police may also have an impact on your claim.

    3. Compensation is not necessarily paid by the criminal

    The person who caused your injuries is not necessarily the person who pays you compensation. For example, in cases where you don’t know who attacked you, or where the person cannot afford to pay you compensation, you can submit a claim to the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority.

    4. You must have sought medical attention

    It’s extremely important that you seek medical attention for any injury sustained through a violent crime. Not only will you receive the necessary treatment for your injuries, but you will also have medical evidence to aid you in your compensation claim in Sarn Park.

    5. You can claim even if your attacker is not convicted

    It is possible to succeed in a criminal injuries compensation claim even if your attacker is not convicted or identified. For example, if the offender is unknown and can’t be traced or if there is not enough evidence to prosecute.
