Compensation for Criminal Injuries

The primary duty of government or the state is to protect its citizens. This includes protecting people from suffering injuries as a result of criminal behaviour. Sometimes that is not possible and in those circumstances you may be eligible for compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority set a tariff which will tell you how much your claim is worth. The value will depend upon the severity of your injuries and how many different types of injury you have suffered. The criminal injuries compensation values can range from a few hundred pounds to over £250,000 depending upon the type of your injury.

Whilst you may be able to bring a criminal injuries compensation claim without legal assistance, our expert criminal injury compensation solicitors will be able to advise you about the rules of the criminal injuries compensation scheme to which your injury applies, which losses you may be able to claim for and how much compensation you may be able to claim for your injuries. We can arrange for your criminal injuries compensation to be reviewed if we do not think the criminal injuries compensation authority have made the correct award and, if necessary, can seek an oral hearing at an appropriate tribunal.

There are strict time limits which apply to criminal injuries compensation claims, so if you do wish to seek legal advice we recommend you do so as soon as possible. At Liverpool Legal, our friendly, expert criminal injuries compensation solicitors would be happy to discuss your claim on a no win no fee basis.
