Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Claims 

The CICA is the government agency that is responsible for handling claims involving individuals who have been physically or mentally injured due to a violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales. 

When a claim is made to the CICA on your behalf, your compensation will be paid by the CICA, although it will still be the responsibility of a solicitor to handle the legal process. 

Compensation from the CICA can cover: 

  • The injuries sustained 
  • The psychological impact 
  • Any rehabilitation required
