In addition to our personal injury claim services, here at Zen Law Solicitors we also specialise in Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) claims. These are dealt with in a similar way as our personal injury claims are, with a No Win No Fee basis.
The effects of criminal attacks can often be serious, resulting in both short and long term psychological and physical damage and therefore if you have been injured due to a criminal act, it is important that you get the compensation that you deserve. CICA’s aim is to compensate innocent victims for not only their injuries but also other factors such as loss of earnings and medical treatment costs.
Under the CICA scheme, which is government-funded, is it also possible for individuals to claim for compensation if they have lost a loved one as a result of a violent attack or crime and also to claim for sexual offences. Final compensation amounts vary depending on the severity of injuries however they are typically between £1,000 and £500,000.
If you are unfortunate enough to have been the victim of a crime, seeking compensation could be the correct thing for you to do, and we are here to offer you advice.
