Can I make a CICA claim?

If you have been physically injured or suffered psychological trauma as a result of a violent knife crime our specialist solicitors could help you claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

We appreciate just how distressing it can be if you or your loved ones have been a victim of a violent knife crime as in many cases the psychological scars can far outlast the physical injuries.

For a CICA criminal assault compensation claim to stand a chance of being successful, you must have reported the incident to the police and fully co-operated with them.

To be eligible for compensation under the CICA scheme the following apply:

  • You have been the blameless victim of a violent crime.
  • The crime or assault must have happened in England, Wales or Scotland.
  • The incident must have been reported to the police as soon as practically possible.
  • If you were an adult at the time of the incident, you should make a claim within two years of the date of the incident, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Every year we help thousands of people to achieve successful criminal injury claims and recover the highest levels of assault compensation they are entitled to, from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
