Our personal injury solicitors provide legal representation for applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) in cases of indecent sexual assault. Our sex assault solicitors apply the ‘no win no fee’ principle which means that unsuccessful applications do not attract any legal fees or expenses. You are also not required to fund or finance your CICA claim. To receive legal advice at no cost on indecent sexual assault compensation claims with no further obligation contact us using the contact form or our helpline or via email. Our sex assault solicitors are also able to provide a same sex lawyer at your request.
A sexual offence can be defined as any offence that is sexual in nature or intention and includes sexual assault, indecent assault, rape and child abuse :-
Innocent victims of a violent crime are eligible for damages from the CICA. The CICA determines awards payable using a tariff scheme whereby each injury is assigned a fiscal value. The amount assigned depends on the severity of the injury. If a victim has suffered multiple injuries, only the three worst injuries are considered. The value of the lesser two of these three injuries is reduced according to a set percentage. Persons unable to work for more than 28weeks may receive additional compensation to cover lost wages.
Victims of sexual assault must send a written application to the CICA within two years from the date of the incident in order to preserve their legal rights. While the CICA can extend time limits under special circumstances, it is in your best interest to report all cases of violent crimes at the earliest time possible.
In addition to being members of the Solicitors Regulation Authority panel of personal injury experts, our sex assault solicitors are well versed in the claims process. They are available to answer all of your questions including providing an honest evaluation of the claim, its success and expected award. Consultation is free and confidential. You are also under no further obligation.SOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0330 660 7004
