Alison McCormack Solicitors are a niche law firm specialising in helping innocent victims of violent crime to recover compensation. We know that no amount of compensation can ever make up for the trauma victims suffer but it could help in a practical way to help fund much needed therapy or counselling or help in a more practical way on the journey to recovery.
The Criminal Injury compensation scheme is a government funded scheme set up as a fund of last resort and as an expression of public sympathy for those who have suffered physical and psychological injuries following a violent crime. If you have been the victim of a violent crime and are not sure whether it is covered by the scheme please get in touch and Alison will guide you through the process. To give you an idea of the types of scenarios that are covered by the scheme we have listed some below. However, if you would like to discuss a violent crime that isn't on the list below please get in touch.
Racially motivated assaults
Knife and gun crime
Sexual Assault/sexual abuse
Historical sexual abuse
Witnessing the death of a loved one
The scheme is very detailed and there are a number of eligibility requirements that you must meet in order to make a claim. To find out more call Alison on 0151 294 6307.
