Accident Claim in Leicestershire


Can I make a claim if I was not the intended victim of the crime? Yes. Whether you were the intended victim or not, if you have suffered because of a criminal activity someone else was involved in, you will be able to claim.

Can I make a claim if I have not received medical attention? It will be extremely difficult to make any type of accident claim in Leicestershire without seeing a doctor and criminal injury claims are no different. You will struggle to prove your injuries if you have not been professionally diagnosed with them. It is advisable to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Can I still make a claim if I have not reported the incident to the police? It is extremely unlikely that you will be able to make a claim if you have not reported the incident to the police. All criminal activities need to be reported. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) has very stringent criteria in place when it comes to this.

Is there a deadline for making this type of compensation claim? When it comes to most personal injury claims you have three years to make a claim from the date of the accident. However, when making a criminal injury accident claim in Leicestershire to the CICA, you actually usually only have two years to make your claim. Rare exceptions are made when the circumstances mean that you had a very valid reason for making a delayed claim.

The police have not taken any action about the crime, can I still make a claim? Yes, so long as you have reported the incident to the police you can make a compensation claim irrespective of whether someone has been prosecuted or not. All you have to do is make sure you are fully cooperative with their investigations.
