Thanks for your question. You need to see a solicitor immediately. You should be considering an application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority which is based in Glasgow. Usually an application has to be made far sooner than 10 years afterwards but I have had experience of applications being accepted later in cases of rape and sexual assault. However, you must see a solicitor about this quickly so that specific advice can be given in relation to your own circumstances. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
