CICA Criminal Assault Claims
Anyone who has been the victim of a violent crime will know the devastating and traumatic effect it can have on your life.
Your personality can alter, your health can suffer and your lifestyle can become completely different through no fault of your own. Sadly, in some cases, the impact of a criminal assault can sometimes result in life-long behavioural changes.
Should you, a family member or a friend suffer physical or psychological injuries due to a violent crime, it may be possible to recover assault compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) set up by the Government.
Even if the offender has failed to be caught or charged, or if the police are unable to identify the person responsible, our criminal assault lawyers will fight to secure the justice and compensation you’re entitled to.

In the majority of cases, people who commit violent and criminal assaults do not have sufficient funds to meet any claim for compensation or the associated legal costs.
The CICA was established to help innocent victims receive the support they need to get their life back on track.Pursuing a claim for criminal assault compensation can sometimes be a daunting process. Legal procedures must be followed and the level of compensation awarded depends on the injuries inflicted and the circumstances in which the assault took place.
At Hudgell Solicitors, we understand the physical pain and emotional trauma victims suffer. Although you can pursue a criminal assault compensation claim with the CICA without legal assistance, our help and expertise may prove the difference between success and failure.
Our specialist team of criminal assault lawyers boast a wealth of experience and have assisted with submissions to the CICA on behalf of victims from across England, Scotland and Wales.
As well as working closely with the CICA to secure the redress and compensation you deserve, we will provide ongoing support and rehabilitation for you and your family.
Any settlement you receive will be paid for by a central fund which is administered by the Government, funded by the general taxes we all pay, so there’s no need to feel guilty about making a claim for assault compensation.
Your claim can also be taken up on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis, so there is no financial risk to you.
To obtain free expert advice or start an assault claim, please get in touch today – we promise to handle your case with discretion and care.
Our ‘No win, no fee’ representation
Victims of crime are often reluctant to pursue their case for compensation because they don’t have the finances that they believe are necessary to do so.
At Hudgell Solicitors, all of our criminal assault and injury claims are funded on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis – so you can seek justice without any financial risks.
Providing that you give us honest and accurate instructions, and fully cooperate to help us try to win your case, you won’t have to pay a penny up front. Whatever the outcome of your case, you’ll only pay an agreed percentage of any damages received.
If we do take on your claim, we always explain the options available and advise you on the best way to fund your case.
If you don’t want to pursue a claim after your initial consultation there is no obligation to do so and you will not be charged, allowing to gather all the information you require before making an informed decision.
