How Much Criminal Injury Compensation?
There are guidelines set out by the Government for compensation amounts. Any victim of violent crime in Bristol or Avon 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.
