Definition of compensation

In simpler terms compensation is a method of payment made to someone that has an injury, lost or damaged. For example, Sarah received £10,000 in compensation for injuring her right leg at work.

Compensation can be claimed in a situation where you were the victim of a violent crime. Such as getting injured in the workplace.

Other reasons for claiming compensation can be:

  • A relative who died that you were close to.
  • You witnessed a crime happening to a loved one.
  • You paid for the funeral of someone who died.
  • If you got injured while trying to stop a crime from happening. This can be in a situation where someone is in great danger and you try to stop it even though you are not trained or skilled to deal with the circumstances.
