• Criminal Injury.

    Criminal Injury.

Are you eligible to claim?

If you have been injured and suffered a loss  as a result of a criminal offence, you can file a Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim Application  with the Assessor of Criminal Injuries Compensation. 

If no one has been convicted for the offence but the Assessor is satisfied that there was an offence, you may still be entitled to compensation​​​​​​.​

The process is non-adversarial (i.e. you don’t sue anyone) but is wholly dependent on the information you provide with your Application to the Assessor. 


The legal process.

The key to this process is ensuring that you provide sufficient detailed information, so the assessor has a clear understanding of how the offence has impacted your life.  

This information can take the form of a very detailed statement from you and/or medical reports from relevant treating practitioners or specialist. 

You must lodge the application within three years of the date of the offence. However, the assessor has discretion to accept claims (filed outside of this three year period). 

What are our clients saying about us?

  • I would just like to thank Natasha and the whole team for looking after me and my claim.  I found everyone to be highly professional and friendly the whole time I was there, which I think was around three years. 
    Highly recommend them to everyone who needs professional help. 
    Thank you very much.

    Robyn Bell-McLeod
    Criminal Injury Claim
  • Natasha and her team were extremely supportive and helpful. From the time of my accident to settlement it was three and a half years, and they guided me throughout the whole thing while not bombarding me with information and tasks so I could have time to get better. When I had questions about the process, they always had time to answer me. When I was unable to fill out paperwork or unsure about how to, I knew I could email or call them for guidance. Dependable, trustworthy and honest. Highly recommend
