Victims of Crime Compensation Claims in WA

You may be entitled to other type of personal injury compensation claims

Injured people who is seeking victims of claim compensation should be aware that criminal injuries compensation is a “remedy of last resort” this means that if they can pursue compensation in another manner such as a motor vehicle accident claim, workers compensation claim or public liability claim then they should pursue these options before claiming criminal injuries compensation.

Do I have a valid criminal injury compensation claim?

You may be eligible to claim victims of crime compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act if you are a:

  • a person who has suffered injury or nervous shock as the victim of a crime or offence and/or experience financial loss as a result of the injury;
  • a relative that was close to a person killed as a result of an offence. Parents and step parents can make claims arising from the death of a child. Other relatives such as a wife/husband, defacto partner, grandparent, child, step-child, or grandchild will also be able to make a claim in limited circumstances.

Criminal injuries compensation can be applied for regarding an incident reported to the Police regardless of whether the person who committed the crime has been identified, charged with a crime or convicted by the state of Western Australia. If a person is charged with a crime and then acquitted (found not guilty) for a reason other than unsoundness of mind you will not be able to make a claim.

When to make an Criminal Injury Compensation / Victims of Crime Compensation Application in WA?

 The Criminal Injuries Compensation Act 2003 states that an application for Criminal Injuries Compensation must be made within 3 years after the date on which the offence was committed or if it relates to more than one offence, the last of them was committed.

Despite this the Criminal Injuries Compensation assessor may allow a person making an application for criminal injuries compensation to make the application after the 3 years if he or she thinks it is just to do so and may do so on any conditions that he or she thinks it is just to impose.
