Criminal Injury Claims for Compensation in Bristol

Were you in the wrong place at the wrong time? Were you injured due to a criminal act or violent assault? If you were hurt or injured through no fault of your own, then you could be eligible for criminal injury compensation via the government CICA scheme with the help of our solicitors**.

In line with FCA Regulations, you are entitled to make a claim free of charge directly to the CICA, without the use of a solicitor. You have 2 years to file the claim, and the crime in Bristol must have be reported to the police before you apply. Our panel solicitors will charge a fee for providing advice and submitting your claim. This fee may be up to 25% of the claim value plus VAT. We will be able to inform you in more detail when you enquire on 01174 534 375^.

Types of Crime Eligible for CICA

The types of scenarios that we can support and help with include:

  • Violent assaults
  • Muggings and robberies
  • Assaults whilst playing sports
  • Broken noses, broken jaws
  • Hit-and-run cases
  • Drunken assaults in pubs, clubs, and nightclubs
  • Sexual assaults and rape

In very simple terms, if you have been assaulted in public, you could be due a compensation amount and award.

How Much Criminal Injury Compensation?

There are guidelines set out by the Government for compensation amounts. Any victim of violent crime in Bristol looking to claim will be guided by this legislation.

  • In order to receive compensation, your injuries must be serious enough to merit the CICA’s minimum payout of £1,000.
  • The top payments for compensation are reserved for the most serious injuries and can reach £500,000.

There are set amounts for different injury types, though you will also receive compensation to cover loss of earnings, medical expenses, and so on. See the CICA website for more information on settlement payouts.
