If you have suffered sexual abuse of any nature and want to pursue a claim via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), our experienced solicitors can help you. Our dedicated team of abuse lawyers deal with a high volume of CICA abuse claims and as such, are well placed to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Despite the fact that legal representation is not required to complete CICA applications, and is often actively discouraged by the authorities, we often find that the compensation figure reached is often significantly higher where a lawyer handles the case. In addition to this, the onus of making the application and the following communication with the CICA is all handled by our team of experts, reducing the burden on the client.
In addition to achieving the best possible outcome for your CICA claim, talking to one of our specialist solicitors can often lead to further compensation being sought. This can either be by way of a civil claim against the abuser or where social services have been negligent, it can be possible to pursue a claim against the local authority. This often results in significantly
increased compensation sums being achieved.
If you have been abused and wish to bring a CICA claim we would strongly recommend that you contact us for a free initial interview. We deal with a high volume of CICA claims following sexual abuse and also have brought negligence actions against other solicitors for their failure to deal with these claims appropriately.
For more information or to speak to a solicitor about making a CICA abuse claim please do not hesitate to contact us on 0330 134 6430 or you can send us a few details of your circumstances online. In the majority of cases we can deal with CICA applications following abuse on a no win no fee basis and will be happy to discuss the possibility of assisting with your claim free of charge.

As one of the few firms of solicitors in the country who specialise in handling abuse claims, our team of approachable lawyers are extremely familiar with the application process, which can be extremely complex, especially where the abuse happened some years ago. One such complication is the “2 year rule”, which despite its name, can successfully be overcome, even where the abuse and/or report to the Police may have taken place years or possibly decades earlier.
In order to avoid the pitfall in pursuing sexual abuse CICA claims, and indeed to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your suffering, you should consult a solicitor who specialises in this particular area.
