A criminal injury can have devastating consequences, with many victims enduring long-term physical and psychological harm and misery. If you've been physically or mentally harmed as a result of a criminal act, you may be eligible for compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Scheme.
What is the scheme?
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, or CICA, is a government agency that compensates blameless victims of violent crime in the United Kingdom. Depending on the severity of your injuries, the CICA will pay out awards ranging from £1000 to £500,000. If you, a friend, or a family member has been injured physically or psychologically as a result of a violent crime, you may be eligible for compensation under the Scheme.
There are strict time limits to the scheme usually you must claim within two years of the incident
