The CICA can make awards for injuries and other losses up to a maximum of £500,000 for the most severe cases. Even if an offender is not identified, caught or convicted, a CICA claim may still succeed so before you make assumptions about the likely success or failure of your case, speak to us first.
Free Initial Consultation
We understand that you will want to speak to us initially to see how we can assist. We offer a no obligation, free first meeting at any of our offices throughout East Anglia, at your home, or in hospital followed by a full letter of advice. If you are unsure whether you may have a claim please feel free to ring or e-mail us, again without obligation.
You can make a claim provided that:
- you were injured in England and Wales after 1st April 1964; and
- you make a claim within two years of the incident (this can be waived in exceptional circumstances).
However, the CICA can reduce or withhold an award if you:
- contributed to your injury as a result of your conduct or behaviour;
- failed to co-operate with the police in the prosecution of the offender (although a prosecution is not always necessary);
- have a significant criminal record.
