If you have been the victim of violence it can be devastating. Most people do not realise but they can claim compensation for being attacked.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government body who run a compensation scheme for injuries caused to victims of violent crime in England, Scotland and Wales. The scheme was first introduced in 1964. CICA awards are best described as a token or gesture of regret at what has happened to the applicant. We often explain to our clients that the payment is not coming from the person who attacked them but from a Government body and it is similar to a charitable payment. Unfortunately, it is not always a large amount and will never compensate them enough for the injury they have sustained.
These are a few things you may want to consider if you are making a CICA claim:
