    Injury claim in Stocksfield

    Injury claim in Stocksfield

    Stocksfield is a small, sprawling commuter village situated close to the River Tyne, about 14 miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne.

    You do not have to be a resident of Stocksfield, Wales, Scotland or England to be a victim of child abuse, it happens worldwide.  Childline, launched by Esther Rantzen in 1986, helps a lot of these children, just by being there for them and advising them. In the UK, if you are in this unfortunate position, you may be entitled to make a criminal injuries claim in Stocksfield.

    The Criminal Injury Compensation Scheme pays injury claims in Stocksfield

    The Criminal Injury Compensation Scheme is a government-funded scheme to compensate the victims of violent crime and abuse. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) administers it.

    What to do if you were under 18 at the time of the abuse

    The CICA recognizes that children cannot always report the abuse they have suffered until they are older and therefore special rules apply:

    • If you were under 18, it is best if someone applies on your behalf as soon as possible.  This is because it may be harder to prove the crime later.
    • If the incident or period of abuse was reported to the police before you were 18, and no one made a claim on your behalf, they will accept a claim from you providing you make it before you turn 20.
    • If the incident or period of abuse took place before you turned 18, but was not reported to the police at the time, they will consider your claim if it is made within two years of the date it was reported to the police.

    These regulations apply to all violent crimes against children, not just sexual abuse.

    Accident Advice Helpline’s patron is a fighter for children’s rights

    Esther Rantzen, TV personality and UK consumer champion has been our patron for the last 10 years.

    She is so influential that some of her campaigns led to changes in the laws, such as seat belts for children in the back of cars and safer playground surfaces for them.

    Children’s rights are one of the things closest to her heart; she still fights for them and no doubt one of the things she will be best remembered for is the setting up of Childline.  She even trained as a counsellor so she could man the phones and be a help to the children herself.

    When she first came up with this idea she was told by children’s organisations that it would not be possible.  They had not reckoned on her determination to help abused and bullied children.  It was the first helpline of its kind in the world and now the idea has been copied in 150 other countries.  That’s a lot of children getting help because of Esther.
