This service is managed by the Criminal Claims Bureau. We help victims of crime obtain criminal injuries compensation following assault, abuse or a non-consensual criminal sexual act.
In the UK there is a Government funded body called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) that has been set up specifically to administer a compensation scheme for blameless victims of crime. Here we offer advice on award payments and direct legal assistance to ensure you have the best prospect of receiving an award.
Our updated simple calculator tool below has been created to provide prospective claimants with an idea of the likely compensation award that might be achievable under the CICA scheme. The final calculation is an approximate figure and any final award assessed by the CICA may differ.
