If you are the victim of a crime, you need an understanding legal team to assist you through the process of accessing support and compensation. RV Legal offer crime victims compensation services for people affected by a range of crimes.
We are passionate about helping people affected by crime to receive kind, compassionate and professional legal support. Many people who are the victim of a crime do not realise that they may be eligible for compensation, or do not know how to access this financial assistance.
We make the process straightforward, clearly explaining your options and helping you through multiple legal channels to make a claim for compensation.
How We Can Help Victims of Crime
We assist victims of crime through each step of the journey.
Victims of crime do not only have to be affected directly by a crime. Victims can include:
- Primary victims. These people are directly affected by crimes, including being killed or injured.
- Secondary victims. These are people who witness or come to assist during a crime and are injured (physically or psychologically) as a result.
- Related victims. These are people related to the primary victims of crime, such as close family and dependents or children.
The perpetrator of the crime does not need to have been arrested or found guilty in a court of law for the victim to be eligible for compensation. In some instances, we can still assist you to make a claim.
There are several types of compensation that victims of crime may be eligible for. We work with clients to decide which types of compensation they would like to apply for and which they are eligible to receive.
Some common compensations include:
- financial compensation
- psychological services
- compensation for loss of wages
- compensation for medical expenses
- expenses required to assist in recovery.
