Criminal Injury Claims

The legacy of crime can touch every part of a person’s life, thus requiring the need for criminal injury claims. Not only can it affect victims financially and emotionally, but it can also leave them with physical injuries that make it difficult to move forward and live without pain. If you have been a victim of criminal injury, you have options. For instance, you may qualify for payment from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

At The Compensation Experts, we appreciate the difficulty of going through a legal process with respect to the crime. In turn, you may not be comfortable facing the thought of further formal proceedings. Accordingly, we work closely with personal injury solicitors who assist victims and their families. In short, they have access to compensation they deserve, aiming to resolve all cases without going to court.

What is a Criminal Injury?

For example, a criminal injury could include:

  • Assault, either physical or sexual;
  • Either a hit-and-run accident or an accident caused by an uninsured driver;
  • Also, an attack at work, or;
  • Physical harm to children from either their teacher, carer, or parent

The CICA pays out almost £200 million every year to victims of violent crime in England, Scotland, and Wales.

The Compensation Experts, above all, work with top lawyers who understand the law around criminal injury compensation. Additionally, they’ll help you obtain the financial recompense you deserve. Furthermore, you may be able to claim compensation if you:

  • For instance, are the blameless victim of a violent crime.
  • Suffer injury while trying to prevent a crime from occurring.
  • Endure emotional or psychological damage while witnessing a close relative or friend’s injury in a crime.
  • Also, are a relative or financial dependent of someone who is unlawfully killed.

Compensation Claims for Criminal Injuries

To seek compensation from CICA, you must ensure you report the illegal act to the police within a reasonable time, and cooperate with them in their attempt to resolve the crime. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to make a claim, contact The Compensation Experts where one of our friendly and knowledgeable team will be happy to provide a free, no-obligation conversation.

Should you decide to pursue a claim, we will match you with one of a select group of criminal injury lawyers who will do their utmost to secure the highest payment in the shortest amount of time. We understand that money won’t erase physical or emotional scarring. But it will help cover any loss of earnings, support dependents, pay for a funeral, and enable you to access additional support like counselling without having to wait in a queue on the NHS.

Holding those responsible

If you suffer an injury or assault through a criminal act at work, your employer could be responsible. The Compensation Experts can also handle this. If you make a claim against both your employer and the CICA, then the amount you receive from your employer will be deducted from any compensation from your the CICA.

Contact The Compensation Experts today. Criminal injury claims can seem confusing, but we will be glad to answer any questions you have about whether you can make a claim, and how to do it.
