Criminal injuries can be highly distressing to deal with; we understand that you may be experiencing trauma after the incident. At Ashwood Solicitors, we have a team of professionals who can provide you with the best possible advice when it comes to Criminal Compensation Claims.


If you’ve been injured due to a criminal act, then you must report the crime to the police if you want to claim criminal injury compensation. We can also help you claim compensation for psychological and physical injuries caused by a violent crime.

At Ashwood Solicitors, we believe that it is important to have immediate access to support, such as counselling or psychiatric help, to help you get your life back on track. We can assess your injury case with honesty and sensitivity as we understand how difficult these situations are. Our team will aim to update you regularly with the progress of your claim and provide honest advice about funding if you qualify for it.

Criminal injury compensation

If you have been an innocent victim of a violent crime, you may be able to make a compensation claim from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). 

At Ashwood Solicitors, we have consistently achieved excellent results for clients when making CICA claims; our legal experts understand the need for reliable and sensitive advice provided straightforwardly. 

To have a successful CICA claim, we have to establish that you are the innocent victim of a violent crime; once proved, you be compensated, as long as your injuries have a tariff value exceeding £1000. 

If you file for CICA compensation and are awarded compensation, it will cover:

  • The abuse suffered
  • Any injuries sustained
  • Psychological damage
  • Cost of any therapies following abuse

Suffering an injury because of the actions of a criminal can be serious and give you long-lasting effects on your life. Our specialist team at Ashwood Solicitors has vast experience when dealing with these types of legal cases; we can ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation. 

What amount of compensation am I likely to receive?

If you have suffered and are claiming compensation for a criminal claim, the amount of payment you are likely to receive is significantly unique to your case, as every case is different. Until our team have investigated and know the circumstances of your claim, it’s impossible to say, but we can advise you on whether you’re entitled to compensation. Once you get in touch with us, one of our team can sit down with you to discuss everything and advise you on the entire process and next steps.
