The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was established in 1964 to manage the criminal injuries compensation scheme in Britain. It is responsible for the administering of criminal injury compensation to those who have been injured as a result of crime.
Since its introduction it has provided some tangible acknowledgement of society’s sympathy for innocent victims of violent crime.
The CICA can award anything from £1,000 up to £500,000. The most recent statement of the CICA puts the number of yearly UK criminal injury claims at 76,000 applications resulting in over £200,000,000 being paid out to victims.
