Criminal Injury Claims

If you have been injured as a result of a violent crime or criminal activity, you might be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Our dedicated team will help you achieve the compensation you deserve.

Some common examples of cases we have successful won for personal injury clients are:

  • Attacks in pub and clubs
  • Glass attacks outside pubs
  • Child abuse victims
  • Victims of racial attacks
  • Sexual assault and rape
  • Shaken baby claims
  • Employees being caught up in armed robberies whilst at work
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Psychological injury
  • Accidental or deliberate injury

There are many other types of claim and we can advise whether your claim is suitable for CICA compensation.

If you are unfortunate enough to have suffered a road traffic accident, which was not your fault and occurred within three years, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your injuries and losses sustained.

What does it cost?

The CICA will not pay for applicant’s solicitors costs. Therefore, your costs will need to be paid from any successful compensation you receive from the CICA. Here at Linder Myers personal injury department we understand the importance of the compensation you receive and therefore we can offer a contingency fee agreement which fixes the percentage of costs you pay to us to cover your costs.
