JONES (BY CALDWELL) (Respondent) v FIRST TIER TRIBUNAL (Respondent) AND CRIMINAL INJURIES COMPENSATION AUTHORITY (Appellant) (2013)
PUBLISHED April 17, 2013
 UKSC 19
The First-tier Tribunal had been entitled to uphold a decision by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority not to award compensation to a driver who was severely injured when a suicidal person ran onto a dual carriageway. Having concluded that no offence had been committed under the Offences against the Person Act 1861 s.20, the tribunal had not been required to ask itself whether there had been a "crime of violence" for the purposes of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2001.
