Claiming compensation for an injury in a crime
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is responsible for paying compensation to people who have sustained injuries during a crime. CICA can pay compensation of between £1,000 and £500,000. All CICA’s decisions are made by following the rules laid down in the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
You would need to report your injuries and the crime to the police in order to be eligible to make a claim through the CICA. If you delay in informing the police you may not be eligible for compensation through the Scheme.
You can make your claim yourself, but the process is complicated, so it would be better to engage the services of a solicitor who specialises in criminal injury claim cases. This is because they would be able to appeal against any decision made by the CICA and if you were offered compensation, that solicitor could tell you if the amount offered was reasonable or not.
