About us

The Criminal Claims Bureau is part of a regulated claims management company regulated by the Claims Management Regulator in respect of regulated claims management activities. Our experienced assault and abuse claim advisors help people who suffer injury or harm as a result of a criminal act.

Most claims are pursued through the government backed Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) but there may be other organisations involved in your case depending on the circumstances.

We can help you by preparing and presenting your application for a claim and then handling all correspondence directly with the CICA. We will check your award and make sure that the right amount of compensation is offered. However in addition to this will explore whether further claims can be made.

It is very common for applicants to miss out on compensation for items such as loss of earnings or “special expenses”.

    In order to determine if we can help you, we usually discuss your case and ask for a detailed account in writing.

    This is necessary because your version of events must be presented to the CICA as concisely and as accurately as possible. We can help you prepare your account and write the text if you would prefer.

    Our team will guide you through every step and we will be involved from start to finish in your claim.
