About criminal injury claims

Criminal cases, such as assault, are usually compensated by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) as long as they have been reported to the police. To make a successful claim, you must:

  • Have been injured in a violent act in England, Wales or Scotland within the last two years
  • Inform the police of the crime within 48 hours or as soon as possible
  • Cooperate with all criminal investigations and proceedings

Examples of crimes

There are many different crimes resulting in injuries that the CICA will pay compensation for, but the most common we have handled include:

  • Assaults in the workplace
  • Attacks in a pub, nightclub or bar
  • Violence in the street
  • Domestic violence
  • Violent muggings or robberies

To ensure you receive the right amount of compensation when you have been the victim of a violent crime, it is important you seek expert legal advice from trusted solicitors.
