Were you the victim of a crime?
You may have been injured during the course of a crime; perhaps you were hit on the head with a blunt object and suffered a whiplash injury among others. As long as the crime was reported to the police and you received immediate medical attention for your injuries, you may be entitled to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) if the crime was committed in England, Wales or Scotland. You would have two years in which to file a claim with the CICA.
You will need to have your unique crime reference number which the police will have given you, as well as your medical report and the police report. The police photographer may have taken photographs of your injury which can be used as supporting evidence for your claim.Open Claim Calculator
You can fill in the online form that you will find on the CICA’s website without the aid of a lawyer, but it would probably be best to have an experienced criminal injury lawyer to help you as the whole process of filing a claim can be long and complex.
