    No win no fee Capernway and making a criminal injury claim

    The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) administers the payments of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, which is a government funded scheme that was set up to compensate the blameless victims of violent crime.  Before submitting a claim to them, you have to have tried to obtain compensation from the assailant.  If you do not know who this is, or if they do not have the means to pay you, the CICA will consider your claim.

    If these are the circumstances you find yourself in, no win no fee Capernway solicitors can help you make your criminal injury claim.

    The things the scheme will pay for

    Payments from the scheme include the following:

    • Personal injury following a single incident of violence
    • Personal injury following a period of abuse, mental or physical
    • Loss of earnings caused by the injuries
    • Special expense payments, to cover specific injury-related needs which are not available free of charge from any other source
    • Fatal injuries, including loss of parental services and financial dependency
    • Funeral and probate expenses

    These payments need careful consideration to make sure you do not lose out on the compensation that is due to you, and that is why you should approach no win no fee Capernway solicitors to help with your criminal injury claim.
