Criminal Injury Claims
If you have a question that we’ve not covered here please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
How much can I claim from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)?
The CICA use a tariff-based system to calculate your compensation.
Different injuries are set at fixed levels depending on the type of injury you’ve suffered and how severe it is.
The minimum amount of compensation the scheme awards is £1,000, and this rises to £500,000 for the most serious injuries.
The CICA may also make compensation awards for any loss of earnings or expenses that you have suffered but there are strict guidelines for these payments.
