You may be able to claim compensation for your injuries or losses. This compensation could come from a number of sources. It is important to keep all of the police and medical reports and any receipts for expenses that result from the crime. It is also important that you report the offence in a reasonable time, provide the police with any information they need so that they can investigate the crime or prosecute the offener, and cooperate as much as you can with the investigation and prosecution.
Each of the types of compensation has its own application process. The compensation a crime victim may be paid by one source may reduce any compensation payable by another source.
