Have you been physically or mentally injured as a result of a violent crime? Here at St Helens Law, we have a qualified, devoted team who can help you to receive compensation for the pain and distress you have endured.
Claims are brought to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). They are in charge of controlling the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme throughout England, Wales and Scotland. We can work on your behalf, pursuing your claim with CICA to make sure you get the compensation you deserve. But why should you use a submit a CICA claim in St Helens through us?
No fees for unsuccessful claims
We understand that legal fees and costs can be daunting and can even put you off submitting a CICA claim through a St Helens law firm. People can worry that if their claim is not successful, they will still be subjected to an expensive bill covering the fees of the solicitors who have worked on their behalf.
However, at St Helens Law, if you choose us, we will proceed on a Contingency Fee basis. That means that if your claim is unsuccessful you will not be charged. If it succeeds, you will be charged a fee of 25% of the amount of compensation you receive. CICA reward figures between £1,000 to £500,000 so if, for example, you were awarded £1,000 in compensation our fee would be £250.
Easily Track Your Case
Throughout your case, you can stay up to date with your case by using the online system FileView. We give you a unique reference and a secure password for your private account so that as and when you please you can check your file to see if there have been any updates.

If at any point throughout your claim you have any questions or queries you can get in touch with your helpful, dedicated solicitor.
