Criminal Injury Compensation Claims
If you have been injured as a result of a violent crime you may be entitled to receive compensation from the CICA (Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority).
You do not necessarily need legal representation to make a claim to the CICA, but in complex cases involving serious injury (or if CICA initially refuse you any compensation), you may wish to speak with us.
We have experience in dealing with all types of CICA claims, including claims involving:
- Brain injury
- Psychological injury
- Sexual abuse
You normally need to make a claim within two years of your injury. In certain circumstances however, these time limits can be waived by the CICA.
It is also usually helpful to a claim if the crime has been reported to the police. Although it is not necessary for there to have been a successful conviction.
If you have been injured as a result of a violent crime and would like advice about compensation, please contact us today on 01273 384001.
