If you have suffered an injury as the result of a homophobic or transphobic attack, sexual assault/abuse or domestic violence you may be entitled to financial compensation from the government. This section tells you about the Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim and how Galop can help you.
If you are a victim of a violent crime and suffer physical injury or mental trauma as the result of an attack you may be eligible for a financial award – this is called criminal injuries compensation. (more…)
Criminal injuries claims cover a wide range of injuries. The minimum payment for a single injury is £1,000 and the maximum payment for a single injury is £250,000. (more…)
Anyone who has suffered an injury as a result of being a victim of a violent crime in England, Wales or Scotland can apply. (more…)
You don’t need a paid representative such as a solicitor to apply for criminal injuries compensation. You can apply directly to CICA yourself, either online or by post. CICA can also provide advice on how to complete the form (tel: 0800 358 3601). Alternatively, you can get advice and assistance from your local Victim Support.
Some LGBT people may want to get help with their criminal injury claim from an LGBT organisation. (more…)
Once your claim is submitted CICA will list all the necessary evidence that is needed to assess your claim. (more…)
The length of time to assess a claim can vary depending on the circumstances of each case. (more…)
If you disagree with the decision, you can ask for your claim to be reviewed by another Claims Officer. (more…)
