We know that being the victim of a violent crime can be a distressing situation for anyone. If you have been physically injured or suffered psychological trauma as a result of violent crime then we are here to help you claim compensation.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (“CICA”) is a government funded scheme which enables the victims of violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales to claim compensation.

The CICA has strict time limits and will reject your claim if they receive it more than 2 years after the assault.

Our experienced representatives can guide you through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, checking your eligibility and ensuring that you obtain a fair amount of compensation for your injuries.

While a settlement will never take away the pain and suffering caused by the violent crime, it can help to cover the cost of medical treatment, some of your loss of earnings, or some short and long-term care needs. If you have suffered injuries which are severe and have continuing effects upon your life, we will work to ensure that you and your family receive the ongoing support that you need. Even if the perpetrator is never identified, caught, or convicted we may still be able to obtain a settlement. Please contact one of our team for further information and advice.
