Victims o f Crime Assistance Regulations (b) the victim's second most serious injury is: (i) if there is another injury for which the first amount is prescribed - that injury; or (ii) the injury, or 1 of the injuries, for which is prescribed the second highest standard amount out of all the victim's injuries (the "second amount"); and (c) the victim's third most serious injury is: (i) if paragraph (b)(i) applies and there is a further injury for which the first amount is prescribed - that injury; or (ii) if paragraph (b)(ii) applies and there is a further injury for which the second amount is prescribed - that injury; or (iii) the injury, or 1 of the injuries, for which is prescribed the third highest standard amount out of all the victim's injuries. (3) No financial assistance may be awarded for another injury suffered by the victim as a result of the same violent act. (4) This regulation does not apply in relation to financial assistance awarded for domestic violence injuries. 19. Reduction of standard amount because of existing condition If a violent act results in a compensable injury because of the aggravation, acceleration, exacerbation or deterioration of an existing condition, the standard amount that may be awarded for the injury must be reduced by the proportionate amount the assessor considers is attributable to the existing condition. 20. Assessment of financial assistance in certain circumstances (1) In deciding the extent of an injury, the assessor must disregard the extent to which the injury, or effect of the injury, may be reduced or limited by an external removable aid or appliance. (2) If the victim has only 1 leg, arm, eye or other body part, an injury to the remaining body part is taken to be an injury to both of the body parts. 21. Burns and scarring (1) An award for bums or scarring is subject to a reasonable inspection of the injury as required by the assessor. (2) The assessor must not award financial assistance for scarring unless the scarring is permanent. 9
