What can I do if my Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims Scheme application fails or is rejected?
If it is rejected, you can ask for a review of the decision by a different claims officer. This must be received by the authority within 90 days of the decision.
If it fails, you may appeal to the appeals panel for a hearing at which you would be entitled to appear with representation. Your appeal must be made within 90 days of the date of the review decision.
