Being the victim of a crime of violence can be a traumatic experience, and you are therefore entitled to seek an award of compensation. This cannot take away the pain and distress suffered, but it can provide recognition that you have suffered as a result of the incident.
You are entitled to make an application in these circumstances but it does not mean that you will automatically receive an award. In order to receive compensation, a claim must fit certain criteria and where appropriate, be supported by evidence. Making an application can therefore be a long and complex process.
We set up Criminal Injury Claims Advice to provide support and assistance to people wishing to make claims. Our knowledgeable and experienced advisers will give clear, understandable, jargon free advice on whether you are eligible to claim and how much you may receive, as well as details of financial losses you may be able to recover.
If you want our help right through to settlement then we can do that as well; from filling in and submitting the application form, to dealing with all correspondence, right through to calculating and settling your claim.
The CICA make no contribution to your legal fees for the assistance we give so we offer our services on the following basis:
We retain 25% plus vat of any award you may receive – if you receive nothing then we don’t charge you for the work we have done. Basically your claim is dealt with on a No Win-No Fee agreement basis.
e.g. if you are awarded £1,000.00 we would retain £250 (25%) plus vat of £50 (20% of £250) leaving you with a balance of £750.00.
