There is a new service for UK residents who have been injured as a result of a crime of violence in another EU country, provided the assault took place on or after 1 July 2005.
Based in Glasgow, the team known as EUCAT has been set up to help potential applicants from throughout the UK gain access to information about compensation in the country in which they were injured and to apply for compensation there.
More information can be obtained from the CICA or directly from UCATT on 0845 603 2938 or email email@example.com
However, please note that they only act as a post box and if necessary we would need to find a translator. CABs or law centres may be able to put clients in touch with translators who can assist.
