Criminal Injuries Compensation

If you were the victim of a violent crime then, needless to say, your life has been affected negatively. However, there are actions you can take to begin moving your life back towards normality.

You might have been injured physically, psychologically, or both. You probably lost out on earnings and may have incurred medical expenses. The usual recourse in these circumstances is to pursue a claim against the person who caused issue; it is unlikely that is an option in these circumstances. If you do find that you are unable to pursue a claim against the offender, you may be entitled to compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.If you were caught up in a criminal act in which you played no part, and suffered injury from, then the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) may be able to award you compensation. For compensation to be awarded it must be found that:

  • The criminal incident was reported to the police without delay;
  • Your injuries meet the minimum award amount of £1,000;
  • The incident occurred within the last 2 years;
  • The incident occurred in Wales, England, or Scotland.

The amount of compensation available is based upon the type and severity of injury sustained. Final amounts awarded include loss of earnings, medical expenses, related travel costs and more.
