The injured person may be one of the parties to the criminal proceedings. The Criminal Procedure Code defines the injured person as a person who has been bodily harmed by a criminal offence, as a person who has suffered property damage caused by a criminal offence, or as a person who has suffered moral or other damage as a result of a criminal offence.
The injured person is entitled to compensation for personal injury and property damage caused by the criminal offence. This claim for compensation for injury – damage must be made no later than at the trial before the court, until the evidence is taken. It must be clear from the application on what grounds and in what amount the claim is made. By pursuing the claim for compensation for injury – damage in criminal proceedings, the injured person can avoid lengthy assertion of the claim for damages in civil proceedings or paying court fees and other costs associated with asserting a claim in civil proceedings.
