UK CRIMINAL INJURY SOLICITORby Pradeep S. Digital Marketing Strategist Our UK criminal injury solicitors are personal injury specialists who deal with no win no fee criminal injury compensation claims. We operate the no win no fee scheme is otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won, and the client obtains an award of compensation. If the legal claim is lost there is no charge made to the client. The CICA was established to ensure that victims of violent crime are offered statutory compensation. If you have suffered a physical or mental injury due to a violent assault which has caused you to visit a doctor at least twice and from which you did not recover for at least 6 weeks, then you may qualify for an award.
Physical and psychological injuries are graded in bands ranging from £1,000 to £250,000. A combination of minor injuries may qualify if they have caused the victim at least two visits to a doctor for treatment and if recovery has taken 6 weeks or more. If the injuries have caused loss of earnings for more than 28 weeks then the victim may be eligible for compensation for income losses. If the victim's injuries cause them to be incapacitated for more than 28 weeks than they may be entitled to claim damages for the cost of ongoing medical treatment or care.
The following criteria apply for no win no fee criminal injury compensation claims:-
the incident should have been reported to the police promptly
value of the injuries should be £1,000 or greater
a claim should normally be made within two years of the violent incident
behaviour of all the parties before, during, and after the incident is considered
the victim should not have provoked the incident
