Criminal Injuries Compensation
Victims of violent crime can suffer devastating physical and psychological injury. Digby Brown’s experience and expertise in acting for the victims of criminal assaults allows us to assess the prospects of success. If we form the view that a case has reasonable prospects of success, we can fund the case from start to finish. In the event that the case is unsuccessful, we will cover any liability to meet the client's own outlays, eg for medical reports, and will not charge a fee.
If you have been injured as a result of a crime you can make an application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The time limit for applications is two years although it may be possible for people who suffered injury as children to bring a claim outwith the two year period.
We can advise and assist with applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). As well as processing the application, we have considerable experience of representing clients at Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeals Panel hearings and Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) hearings. Using our expertise we have obtained awards in excess of £2 million.
