Criminal injuries can be very serious but there is no set amount of compensation given to victims. The level of compensation depends on how much the injury has affected you.
If you believe you have suffered a criminal injury and would like to know specifically how much compensation for criminal injuries it is worthwhile speaking to a personal injury lawyer or the Criminal Injuries Authority ( CICA).
Almost any injury can be sustained during a physical assault. Here are a few common types of criminal injury and the related compensation amounts:
In all cases, the extent of your symptoms; whether or not you have been able to work and your age will all be considered.
CICA is a government-run organisation designed to compensate blameless victims of crimes. Most criminal injury compensation claims are conducted through this body.
Compensation amounts sought through CICA range from £1,000 for the minor of injuries up to £500,000 for the most severe.
There are specific requirements which you will need to meet in order to be eligible to claim under the scheme.
In most cases, your criminal injury claim can be conducted through CICA but there are some circumstances when the help of a personal injury lawyer is valuable.
