If you have been the victim of a crime of violence, for example if someone has assaulted you, then you can claim. Ordinarily the person may not be insured for that type of claim or the person who assaulted you may have run away.

In these cases compensation is paid by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

Even if you do not know who attacked you or they cannot be found, you can still claim. You can also claim even if you knew your attacker.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government organisation that can pay money (an award) to people who have been physically or mentally injured because they were the blameless victim of a violent crime.

They consider applications and make awards that range from £1,000 to £500,000.

Customer testimonials for our Personal Injury solicitors

“Thank you to Vijay and his team, throughout the whole journey you have been so supportive and helpful, I cannot thank you enough”

Mrs Martin

“I would like to say a very big thank you to Vijay. The service you provided was excellent and at all times I always felt confident that you would get the result we wanted. Your approach to myself and the claim was done with kindness and understanding. I never once felt like just a file number, and your friendliness made the whole process so much easier. I would also like to thank you for the outcome of the claim, because without all your hard work it would not have been possible. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that finds themselves in the unfortunate position where they need to make a claim.”

Paul Gafner

“I had a claim for compensation. The case was lengthy (five years) and complicated. The case was handled throughout by Vijay whom I found to be efficient, courteous, co-operative and very supportive. His favourite saying was ‘hide behind me, I will look after you’ and he did. I feel Vijay did an excellent job and I would recommend Wrigley Claydon’s services to anyone.”

Simon Johnson

“I am writing to thank Wrigley Claydon Solicitors for the skillful and professional way in which my mother’s accident claim was handled. The case was quite complex and there were many twists along the way but I always felt that Vijay was in full control. This was proved in the successful outcome which was well beyond our expectations. His communication was first class, always clear, friendly and left me with no doubts about where we were. I felt that I was kept fully informed at all stages of the claim. I would have no hesitation in using your Company again or recommending Vijay to others in need of help.”
