If you are a victim of crime then you may be entitled to an award ranging from £1000 to £500000. We can advise you regarding your application for compensation and an experienced public access barrister can represent you at any court hearings that you may be required to attend. Nationwide Barristers can help you achieve damages regardless of whether the criminal was successfully convicted at court. We can also help if you are a parent acting on behalf of a child that has been a victim of crime.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority was established by the Government to recognise the physical and emotional suffering felt by the blameless victims of crime. Whether you have been injured as a result of an assault, or whether you have been the victim of a sexual assault, we can advise you regarding the prospects of making a successful application. We can also represent you directly if you have already made an application and have been unsuccessful.
Many victims require our help to appeal the first decision of the Authority and reach a successful outcome at court. Our flexible fixed fee packages enable our clients to pursue compensation without the involvement of a solicitor.
