Criminal Injuries

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.

In order to make a claim one must:

  • Have reported the assault to the police as soon as possible
  • Have sought medical attention for your personal injury
  • Not have caused or contributed to the “incident” in any way
  • Claim even if the person committing the assault was not actually prosecuted by the police; and
  • The assault must have occurred within the last two years.

We help individuals to make their claim through the above scheme and offer a No win No fee service that provides you with the expert advice you need and an unrivalled professional service.

We work hard to ensure that you receive the best possible service and the maximum award allowable under the scheme. Contact us today for an immediate review of your particular case.
