CICA Criminal Injury Assault Claims

The majority of compensation claims submitted to the CICA are from victims of assault.

The CICA scheme awards compensation to victims of violent crime.  Injury compensation can be anything from £1,000 to £250,000 depending upon severity.  Loss of earnings and other expenses can also be recovered up to a maximum of £250,000.  The combined amount of compensation payable under the CICA scheme is therefore £500,000.

Although people can submit a CICA application themselves, it often pays to retain a specialist solicitor. We are able to maximise the prospects of an award being made. Our efforts can also have a direct impact on the amount of compensation paid. One of our clients had their award increased by over £170,000 when we reopened the case for them.

So, if you have been the victim of violent crime and have suffered physical or mental injury as a result then call our specialist CICA compensation helpline for free legal advice and details of our no-win – no fee funding scheme.
