    Criminal injury compensation claims


    Criminal injury compensation claims

    The streets are just not as safe as they used to be; this is a sad, sobering fact. Violent crime is constantly on the increase, with many criminals willing to resort to violent, potentially lethal, means in order to steal, intimidate or just ‘because they can.’

    If you are the blameless victim of a violent crime and have been physically or mentally scarred as a result, you could be eligible for compensation. The right to claim will of course depend on the specifics or the crime, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we know which questions to ask and how to proceed without offending or upsetting you.

    Making a personal injury claim against your attacker

    In the aftermath of a serious violent attack, you will be in no fit state to do anything besides rest and recuperate, and we understand this. It can be an incredibly stressful and vulnerable time, so you don’t want to be adding to the strain on your already fragile conscious by delving into the legal jargon that goes with filing a personal injury claim.

    If you call our team on our 24/7 helpline, you’ll be put through to an adviser who should be able to assess your situation and tell you whether or not you have the grounds to make a claim for compensation. If you have suffered at the hands of a criminal and are unable to work as a result, this would also go some way towards helping your case.

    What can I claim?

    The exact amount you’ll receive will be decided by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, a body whose rules and regulations are constantly changing and adapting with the times. If you make your claim through us though, you will never have to deal directly with the CICA directly.
