    Solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch

    Injury compensation claims require a lot of knowledge and expertise regarding the law in the UK. Our solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch know all the ins and outs of compensation claims, whether it’s to do with the accidents or the injuries or if it’s a criminal injury claim.

    Using the solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch to make a criminal injury claim

    The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government-funded body who administer a scheme to help the innocent victims of violent crimes. They will take a claim from you providing they are the last resort, and that you have attempted to get your compensation from the assailant. If you do not know who that is, or the guilty party does not have the means to pay you, then CICA will consider your claim.

    Our solicitors in Kinloch Rannoch say that you need to fit the criteria

    The basic criteria for a criminal injury claim are that:

    • You were not to blame for the incident;
    • You were injured during the crime;
    • Your injuries needed medical attention;
    • You reported the incident to the police and helped them as much as you could; and
    • The incident happened within the last two years.

    You can also make a claim if:

    • You sustained an injury while taking an exceptional and justified risk, when trying to remedy or prevent a crime;
    • You sustained a mental injury as a result of witnessing or being involved in the immediate aftermath of an incident in which a loved one was injured; or
    • You are the qualifying relative of a victim who has died from injuries caused by a crime of violence.

    A crime of violence has no legal definition, although it is deemed to be:

    • A threat against you, causing you fear of immediate violence in circumstances which would cause a person of reasonable firmness to be in such fear;
    • A sexual assault to which you did not consent;
    • Arson or fire raising;
    • Any sort of omission which is considered a crime of violence if that omission results in a physical injury, such as withholding something you need to stay alive;
    • A physical attack by an assailant; or
    • Any sort of act of a violent nature which causes physical injury to you.
