Victims of violent crime can seek financial assistance for medical injuries, pain and suffering and loss of earnings caused by the offence. Victims may apply for financial assistance from the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT). The purpose of VOCAT is to assist the victim’s recovery. Victims can also seek compensation in the criminal court where the offender is sentenced.
We have the skill and experience to guide you through the legal process to ensure the best possible outcome. We can also appear in person for you at VOCAT. Depending on the seriousness of your injuries, we can also advise on the prospects of taking your matter to Court.
Applications for compensation at VOCAT are free.
