Criminal Injuries Compensation Board

Have you or someone you know been the victim of a violent crime?

Any person injured as a result of a violent crime in Ontario may apply to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board for a monetary compensation. This includes if you have been a victim of a crime, such as assault, domestic or sexual abuse.


Sambrano Legal prepares and files applications, and represents Victims at hearings before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board. Hearings are often held in discreet locations and closed to the general public. The person(s) who committed the crime does not have to have been found guilty in order for you to submit a claim.


The injuries may be physical, psychological or both. Ongoing monthly periodic awards can be made in certain cases when there is an ongoing financial loss (e.g. lost income, child care expenses).


There is a two-year time limit for claims, so it is best to contact Sambrano Legal today.
