Victims Of Crime

If you have found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and have been exposed to a crime being committed, you will likely be mentally, and/or physically traumatised. If you have experienced the trauma of any capacity, and have required treatment, rehabilitation, or time off work as a result, our team at Matthew Mitchell Solutions will work tirelessly to acquire compensation for your losses.

The Victims of Crime (VOC) Compensation Scheme has been administered to help people who have been injured by a criminal act, at no fault of their own. The amount of compensation paid out is determined by the seriousness of the injury obtained, as opposed to the severity of the crime you have been exposed to. During your free initial phone consultation with us, we will work to understand your situation and provide you with advice specific to your sustained injuries. It may just be that VOC compensation is not the best route to go down, in which case we will build a claim to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Claims that were made for incidents that occurred between 1 September 1990 and 30 June 2015 received a maximum compensation payout of $50,000. Claims lodged for incidents that occurred on or after 1 July 2015 receive a maximum compensation payout of $100,000.

If your claim is successful, your legal fees will be paid by the Government, meaning you will receive compensation without paying a cent! For more information from our experienced Victims of Crime lawyers, contact us today for your free, no-obligation consultation.
