Advising with empathy and experience

Claims arising from crimes of violence

Violent crime is, fortunately, rare and the number of incidents has fallen consistently in recent years. Nevertheless for the victims the effects can be profound. In addition to physical and psychological injuries the victim can be left feeling powerless and vulnerable.

Those injured in violent crime may feel that making a claim for compensation is a necessary part of the recovery process. It may symbolise recognition of their loss and reflect public sympathy towards them. Sadly, some victims of crime are so traumatised by events that the prospect of reliving their experiences delays or prevents them from seeking recompense.

There are a number of options open to those who have suffered violence and wish to seek compensation. There are strict time limits and the procedure can be complex. We can assist and support you through the process.
