Wildy's Book of the Month: November 2016

This is a practical and comprehensive guide to making a claim under the government’s tariff based scheme for compensating victims of violent crime.

This new edition uniquely pulls together, in one handy volume, the original 1996 tariff based scheme, the 2001 scheme, the 2008 scheme and the tribunal rules that accompany it, as well as the latest 2012 scheme.

Divided into three sections - eligibility, assessment of compensation, and the procedural aspects of the scheme - this text provides a one-stop source of information for all those practising in this field.

Considered the definitive book on the subject, its key features include:

  • commentary on all the recent judicial review decisions
  • detailed guidance on the approach of the authority and the First Tier Tribunal to some of the more difficult issues of interpretation of the schemes
  • specific guidance on the approach to and calculation of an applicants’ losses
  • detailed summaries of relevant case law
  • practical advice on preparing, obtaining evidence for and presenting claims
  • detailed reference to the procedural rules, practice directions and the Guides to each Scheme.
This is essential reading for practitioners looking to improve their applicants’ chances of receiving the appropriate compensation.
