A claim can be made against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, otherwise known as the CICA.

There are very specific and strict criteria that need to be met but the procedures can be very straightforward for many.

No Win - No Fee

We offer a No win No fee service which guarantees you will have no legal fee to pay if your abuse claim against the CICA does not succeed. If you instruct us to handle your claim and you receive compensation, we charge 25% of any award inclusive of VAT. In the event that your case does not result in any award being paid we will make no charge. 

Case example: An award of £11,000 would result in a fee of £2750 leaving a net sum of £8250 compensation payable. If a case fails and no award is paid, no fee would be payable to us. Please also read about your cancellation rights.

Are you entitled to make a claim..?

Sexual abuse or rape assault

It is possible that you can make a compensation claim to the CICA if you satisfy the following criteria:

  1. You reported the matter to the police (in rape cases this must be within a reasonable timeframe)
  2. You then cooperated with the police at all times
  3. You apply for compensation within 2 years of the crime OR your report of the crime to the police.

It does NOT matter if the perpetrator was prosecuted or if the court case is pending.

It does NOT matter if no medical attention was sought after the incident. Sexual assault cases are treated very differently to claims involving violence or physical injury.

  1. You reported the matter to the police within a reasonable timeframe
  2. You then cooperated with the police at all times
  3. You apply for compensation within 2 years of the crime.
  4. It is expected that you seek medical attention for any injuries suffered. To not do so may affect your claim.

It does NOT matter if the perpetrator was prosecuted or if the court case is pending.

Each case must be considered on its own merit.
