If you’ve been injured as a result of an act of violence, Stacks can get you the compensation and help you need.
If you have been the victim of a criminal activity you may be entitled to statutory compensation. Even in the event that the perpetrator of a crime is ordered by the courts to pay compensation for the injury that they caused, in reality it is often the case that they simply cannot meet the costs involved. For this reason a victims compensation scheme helps to redress the balance. In NSW the Victims Support Scheme handles claims for victims of crime.
You may be entitled to victims compensation if you are injured in any of the following situations:
- If you suffer harm as the victim of an act of violence by another person
- If you suffer harm while trying to prevent an act of violence or help a victim
- If you suffer harm as a result of witnessing an act of violence
- If you suffer harm as a consequence of the fact that you are related to a victim (in some cases)
The compensation process can be complex and there are strict rules as to the types of injuries that are eligible, and the ways that compensation for those injuries is calculated.
