Criminal Injury Claims

Suffering an injury is traumatic enough; however, if you or someone you know has been physically harmed as a result of a criminal act, as well as wanting to ensure the person who committed the crime is held accountable, you should also consider making a claim for compensation for your injuries and losses

At Redkite Solicitors, we have a proven track record for pursuing a wide range of criminal injury claims. With strategic advice and expert negotiation, we will ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries.

Why choose Redkite Solicitors for criminal injury claims?

Each year, thousands of people are injured as a result of violent criminal attacks, with the severity of these injuries ranging from minor to life threatening. Without specialist legal guidance, applying for compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (the ‘CICA’) can seem daunting, but is often the only way to secure redress. With vast experience handling criminal injury claims and a thorough understanding of the Government’s guidelines, our specialist criminal injury claims solicitors will work meticulously to ensure you are adequately compensated for your injuries.

We understand how distressing a criminal injury can be, causing both physical and emotional pain for the victim and their family, so, when it comes to completing your CICA claim form, our dedicated experts will work diligently on your behalf to ensure no detail is left out; ensuring the maximum amount of compensation is recovered. If your injuries have long-term implications, either physical or psychological, you can count on our solicitors to ensure the CICA understands the change to your circumstances and the cost this will accrue.

We offer a free consultation to victims of criminal injuries, allowing you to gain an understanding of your legal position and roughly how much compensation you could be awarded. Should you be unable to visit us in one of our high-street offices due to the severity of your injury, rest assured that home visits as well as appointments in hospital are just part of our dedicated service. Since we can also operate on a no win no fee basis, you will be free to let us actively pursue a criminal injury claim on your behalf without having to worry about any up-front legal fees.

Making a Criminal Injury Claim

The CICA is the Government-funded scheme that exists to help victims of violent crime. The main benefit of this scheme is that victims are adequately compensated for their suffering, irrespective of whether the guilty party is caught. CICA deals with all criminal injuries; from attacks of a sexual nature to violent assaults.

Due the nature of these claims and the process involved, it’s beneficial to have a specialist solicitor on board to ensure the compensation offered accurately reflects the extent of your injuries and losses, including medical treatment, loss of your earnings or on-going psychological support. Our solicitors have significant experience dealing with CICA claims and have developed an expert ability to negotiate on behalf of our clients. As a government body, navigating your way through the application for compensation can be complex, so let our criminal injury solicitors guide you through and keep everything as clear and straightforward as possible.
