Criminal Injury Compensation Claim In Scotland

Separator

Criminal injuries refer to the physical harm caused to an individual through an illegal act. Depending on the injury, the damage may vary from person to person. With that said, the psychological and physical impact that results from criminal injury can be covered by a criminal injury claim in Scotland.

Criminal injury claims are submitted to seek compensation for the psychological or physical damage that is a direct result of the criminal injury. The settlement amount is covered by the Criminal Injury Compensation Board (CICA).

What is CICA?

CICA, previously known as the Criminal Injury Compensation Board, is an organisation that is sponsored by the Ministry of Justice.  This establishment extends compensation schemes for injuries to victims of violent crimes in Scotland, England and Wales. The reward paid by CICA may vary, depending on the nature of the injury, as well as the overall harm caused.

With Wallace Legal, you can get the amount that you deserve. Our teams of trained solicitors can submit your case to the relevant authority. Moreover, our experts can collect and forward evidence, so you can receive the maximum amount.

Making CICA Claims

At Wallace Legal, we have employed a team full of highly skilled and professional solicitors to ensure that you get the support you need in your difficult time. We understand that suffering from violent crimes can leave a person in serious distress and frustration.

Sadly, no amount of money can ever be sufficient enough to undo the mental stress and physical damage you have been through because of the crime, but submitting a criminal injury compensation claim is the only salvation you can get after this mishap. This monetary compensation can help you get on with your life and provide some degree of closure to the horrible incident you have experienced.

How To Make A Successful Criminal Injury Claim

You need to be able to tick some boxes in order to be eligible to submit an application for CICA compensation. The criteria are as follows:

  • You should be a victim of a crime that led to physical and/or mental injuries
  • You must be present in England, Scotland or Wales when the incident happened
  • You should report the matter to the police at your earliest. However, if your injuries were so severe that you weren’t able to reach the police immediately, you will get some leverage.
  • You should submit an application for the claim within 2 years from the date of the mishap.
  • Your injury or damage was serious enough to qualify for the minimum cash reward i.e. £1000
