Claims Arising Out Of Criminal Injuries

Criminal assaults/attacks can all have serious and long-lasting effects, not only on the person directly affected but also on their families and loved ones.

If you have been injured in a violent crime, you could be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is a government body created to provide compensation to those who have suffered injuries as a result of an attack.

Bleasdale & Co. Solicitors Limited have helped many clients to claim compensation through the CICA after a criminal attack. Our experience in these claims means we know exactly how to ensure you get the best possible compensation settlement within the rules of the criminal injury scheme.

Criminal injury claims do need to be handled differently to other personal injury claims, so it is important to choose a solicitor that fully understands the process. We will talk you through how these claims work and keep you up-to-date at each stage of the claim.

It is really important that you report the attack to the police and help them with their enquiries, as this will help us build your case. You should also contact us to start a claim as soon as possible, as criminal injuries claims must start within two years of the incident.
