CICA claim for assault. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government-funded organisation that makes compensation payments to the victims of crimes of violence. This covers physical or sexual assault carried out by a stranger, spouse, family member, or colleague.

If you have been the victim of a crime of violence then you have the right to seek a financial award for your injuries. In certain circumstances, you can recover for your financial losses.

Claim from the CICA

To qualify for an award you need to show:

  • the assault happened in Great Britain
  • occurred in the past two years (there are exceptions to this rule dependent upon age/type of assault – always seek advice)
  • you sustained a non-trivial injury
  • the matter was reported to the police promptly – this usually means within 48-72 hours of the assault (not applicable to sexual assault/rape)
  • full co-operation and assistance was given to the police in finding and prosecuting your attacker.

There does not need to be a conviction or an arrest for you to bring a claim. As long as you reported the incident and co-operated you can make a claim.
