SOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0330 660 7004

Criminal injury compensation solicitors instructed to claim damages for injury sustained as a result of violent crime can use one of the three methods outlined below and while all may result in an award of compensation, only claims made to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) are guaranteed to be paid.

Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority Tariff Scheme

The CICA tariff scheme assigns an injury to one of 25 tariff bands. The band range is £1,000 to £250,000. Victims receive compensation for their three worst injuries. The worst Injury is awarded full value and awards for the second and third worst injuries are reduced by set percentage rates. The total personal injury award is subject to a cap of £250,000.

Victims who have been incapacitated for more than 28 weeks can seek compensation for lost wages, however the compensation will only be considered for period following the expiry of 28 weeks.
