i couldnt find ur answer sorry
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 10 months ago

Dear customer, I am sorry to hear about the incident to your family.

In relation to your important question raised, your mother will be able to seek support services and compensation through victims of crime program, which is run by the State Government.

You mother will need to seek the assistance of a lawyer to process the application as it is lengthy and can be complex subject to the circumstance of the incident that occurred.

There is help for your mother and the law will come to her aid.

If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Please don’t forget to leave positive feed back.

Kind regards
John Melis
