Criminal Injuries Compensation

Claiming Compensation

If you have suffered injury as the result of a violent crime within the last 2 years, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is a government scheme designed to pay compensation to those who have unfortunately suffered an injury as the result of a violent crime. In order to claim compensation you must have reported the crime to Police Scotland. This ensures that there is a record of the incident which we can then rely upon. You may not know the name of the perpetrator of the crime, however, as long as you have the police reference number we are able to request the appropriate report. We hope that our clients never find themselves in this situation, but if they ever do they know they can turn to us.
