If you have been physically injured or suffered psychological trauma as a result of a violent crime our specialist solicitors could help you claim compensation from the government-run Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, known as CICA handle some 40,000 applications for compensation each year, paying out up to £200 million to victims of violent crime in England, Scotland and Wales.
We appreciate just how distressing it can be if you or your loved ones have been a victim of violent crime as in many cases the psychological scars can far outlast the physical injuries.
Whilst a CICA payment may not take away the pain and suffering caused by the violent crime, the settlement can be used to help to cover the cost of medical treatments not covered under the NHS, loss of earnings, or to assist with any ongoing care and/or rehabilitation.
Our expert lawyers are specialists in Serious Violent Attacks and Sexual Violence and have helped many clients claim criminal injury compensation payments after a range of different incidents, often through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims Scheme.
