I have been injured in a violent crime, can I make an injury claim in South Queensferry?
Yes you can, providing you were the blameless victim of a crime that happened within the last 2 years, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim. The incident that caused the injury must have been reported to the police and you should have helped them with their inquiries.
Who will pay my criminal injury claim in South Queensferry?
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). They are government funded, with amounts for specific injuries decided on by parliament.
The first port of call for your injury claim, should be the villain who assaulted you. If you do not know who it was, or the culprit does not have the means to pay you, then the CICA will consider your claim.
Is making a criminal injury compensation claim complicated?
Yes it is. Like all government run organisations, there are ins and outs you need to know about. If your injury claim is not presented to the CICA in the proper manner, it will be rejected. You cannot claim for the same injury more than once, so could not correct what they were not happy with and try again.
The best way is to know your claim will be right first time. To know everything possible will have been accounted for and to know you can trust the solicitors handling it for you 100%. To be certain of these things, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline.Open Claim Calculator
