Being a victim of a violent crime can be a very distressing time, and something we take very seriously here at St Helens Law. We are able to work with a government organisation named the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), providing people with the compensation they deserve for an act that was not their fault. CICA compensation pays money (an award) to people that have been physically or mentally injured as a result of being a blameless victim of a violent crime.

CICA is located in Glasgow, but are responsible for administering the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme throughout England, Wales and Scotland. They have such responsibility due to their effectiveness of providing victims with the compensation they deserve as a result of a CICA claim.

In accordance with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme in 2012, the CICA compensation pay out awards range from £1,000 to £500,000. As you can imagine, this is dependant on multiple factors, so it’s best to get in touch with the experts at St Helens Law first to see how much you may be entitled. On a yearly basis, CICA pay out over £200million in Criminal Injury compensation awards, do you feel like you deserve some of this pay out as a result of your injuries physically or mentally? If so, a CICA claim could be the next course of action.

If you have been a victim of violent crime or criminal activity and have been injured as a result, you may be entitled to this form of CICA compensation. Although this may not be full justice, it can present you with a chance of recovering from said injuries in a more manageable way.

There are various types of claim, which may be brought to the CICA. At St Helens Law, we have a dedicated team to assist you in achieving the compensation you deserve.
