We can help get you on the road to recovery
We understand that there is nothing that will undo the damage that has been done. However for many of our clients, claiming financial compensation for a criminal injury has helped them move on with their lives and start a new chapter.
In criminal injury cases we work with the government body – The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme – to compensate you as the blameless victim of a violent crime. And we may even be able to help you claim criminal compensation if the perpetrator has never been caught, identified or convicted.
The CICA is a government body who run a compensation scheme for the victims of violent crime. It was originally set up to help those who have been physically or mentally injured as the victim of a violent crime. So if you’ve been the victim of a violent crime, then it’s likely that we will be able to claim on your behalf.
