Criminal Injury Claims

Criminal Injuries Claims

If you have been a victim of violent crime and sustained an injury as a result, be it physical or psychological you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim. The CICA is a government funded scheme that provides victims with the opportunity to secure compensation helping them to move forward with their life.

CICA claims are subject to stringent rules and guidelines with the eligibility of each victim being dependant on the circumstances of each case. Following a criminal attack our solicitors have successfully acted on behalf on victims in the following circumstances:

  • Accidents/Assaults in Prison
  • CICA claims following abuse

FAQs

Do I Qualify For a Criminal Injuries Claim?

The criminal injury must have happened in Great Britain (Scotland, Wales or England) and must also be serious enough to qualify for the minimum tariff award of £1000. In addition, you need a crime reference number from the police, and you must not have contributed to the incident in any way. For example, if you were injured in a fight if you started the fight or goaded your attacker in any way you may not qualify for compensation.

Can I Claim Compensation For a Fatal Injury to a Loved One?

If you are the spouse, partner, parent or child of a person who died as a result of a criminal injury, you may also be able to claim compensation for the loss of your loved as well as a payment to compensate you for funeral expenses.
