Criminal injuries compensation tribunal
4. If you lose your appeal
There’s no right of appeal - you may be able to ask for a ‘judicial review’ of the decision if you think the decision was wrong for a legal reason - this means they may hear the case again.
Contact a solicitor for legal advice if you’re unsure.
Before you apply
Before applying for a judicial review:
- write to the tribunal, saying why you think the decision was wrong
- ask for written reasons for its decision
You must do this within 1 month of the date of the decision.
How to apply - England and Wales

Fill in the judicial review claim form and return it to the address on the form.
