Compensation for victims of crime

If you, or someone you know, has suffered the trauma of physical, domestic or sexual abuse, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries from the Government’s Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)

Compensation ranges from £1,000 to £500,000, depending on the severity of your injuries, and our dedicated team of solicitors will fight to secure you the compensation you are entitled to.

Why get legal support?

  • Maximise your chances of success in the quickest time possible.
  • Secure you maximum compensation.
  • Chase decisions on a regular and persistent basis.
  • If necessary, submit applications for review in a way to maximise chances of review being successful.

How we can help you make a successful claim?

In accordance with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012, the CICA determine a victim’s eligibility by following a set of criteria, with minimum conditions which must be met before an innocent victim of crime can apply for compensation.

We have helped thousands of innocent victims of abuse and assault secure compensation for criminal injuries whilst providing support they need to get their life back on track.

As the leading criminal injury law firm, we work closely with the CICA to secure you the compensation and justice you deserve.
