The effects of a criminal injury can be devastating. Victims may not only suffer physical injuries, but also ongoing psychological harm and distress. Whilst obtaining monetary compensation can never fully make up for the harm caused, it can be a means of securing some justice for the victim.
Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority
If you have been injured, either physically or mentally, in a criminal attack in the UK you may be entitled to claim compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), which is a government body created to compensate innocent victims of crime. The CICA scheme allows you to make a successful claim even if an offender is not identified, caught or prosecuted.
We understand that bringing a claim in such circumstances may seem daunting and our solicitors will be there for you every step of the way – not only advise you on the legal issues, but to offer a sympathetic ear.
By working with you and the CICA, our specialist personal injury team can help you achieve the criminal injuries compensation you deserve. We can also help secure counselling and support, together with medical help where appropriate.
We also have a dedicated and comprehensive Personal Injury Claims website, which details injury and accident types and how much you may be entitled to.
