If you have been the innocent victim of a violent crime, then you may be able to use solicitors in Keyston to make a criminal injury compensation claim. One of the things you need to ensure is that you reported your attack to the police and helped them with their enquiries.
There is a two-year time limit for making a claim, and before the government will pay you, you must have tried to get the compensation from the assailant if you know who it is. If you do know who the guilty party is, but they do not have the means to pay you, then the government will still step in with compensation, as they do not want innocent victims to lose out on that to which they are entitled.
What is criminal injury compensation?
The criminal injury compensation scheme is government funded and is run by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
There are certain criteria that you must be able to fit to be able to make a compensation claim, although there are some exceptions to the rules such as time limits being extended in certain circumstances. The solicitors in Keyston at Accident Advice Helpline know how the scheme works and will make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
The scheme is complex
The scheme is very complex, purposely and correctly, to ensure that only those who are truly entitled to compensation are awarded it. If you do not present your case in the right way it may be rejected, which is why you should use our solicitors in Keyston to help you.
