Time Limits for Victims of Crime

  • The time limit for claiming is generally 2 YEARS after the incident for which the claim is made, whether the victim is an ADULT or a CHILD.
  • However, the time limit may be extended if there is a good reason for the delay and it is in the interests of justice to do so.
  • So, even if you think you are out of time, we will advise you whether you may still claim.
