If you have been attacked or assaulted in the UK during the past 2 years you may be entitled to compensation.
Your claim will be pursued via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
The CICA do not pay Solicitors’ costs and individuals can pursue their claims without legal representation. This therefore raises the question; “Why do I need a Solicitor?”
Answer: Criminal injury compensation claims can be very complicated and a great many claims are rejected by the CICA every year.
It is always helpful to seek professional legal advice, whether it be in relation to a complex matter of law, the value of the damages in your claim, how to conduct yourself during the claims process, or regarding the prospects of your claim generally.
