CICA (Criminal Injury)
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was established to manage the criminal injuries compensation scheme in Britain. The CICA are responsible for the administering of payments of compensation to those who have suffered injuries as a result of a crime of violence in England.
The CICA can award anything from £1,000.00 minimum award up to £500,000.00 for a criminal injury. In addition to compensating for the injury the CICA can also compensate for medical expenses and, where appropriate, loss of earnings suffered as a result of the injury.
The statutory CICA scheme can pay compensation even if the offender is not identified or caught and even if the offender is not convicted of the crime which caused you to suffer personal injury. The scheme requires the crime of violence to be reported to the Police.
Rogers & Norton have a department with experience in advising on personal injury claims arising from crimes of violence and will ensure that we maximise the claim which is presented to the CICA on your behalf. We are prepared to accept instructions on a conditional fee basis, allowing every Claimant the ability to pursue the claim in the knowledge that, unless their claim is successful, they will not be required to pay the fees for representation by Rogers & Norton.
Examples of crimes giving rise to claims against the CICA can include:-
- Injuries caused by deliberate use of a motor vehicle
The CICA compensate on a tariff scheme and criminal injury which can be compensated include:-
- Cuts and Bruises
- Broken Limbs
- Brain and Head Injuries
