Do I have a valid criminal injury compensation claim?

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.
