Legal Support

cica claim



We’ve partnered with Brain Injury Group, a network of specialist brain injury solicitors and supporting services, to provide access to initial free support from lawyers who are experienced in bringing claims via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), for injury following one punch assaults. 

If you have suffered injury, you generally have two years from the date of the assault to commence a claim via the CICA.  This time limit differs for those who are under 18 at the time of the assault who have until their 20th  birthday, and for people who lack mental capacity.

It’s not necessary to instruct a solicitor in order to bring a claim via the CICA, but it is important to ensure that you evidence your injuries and losses correctly, so that your claim is not undervalued.  You may also choose to instruct solicitors part way through your claim if you feel that you are struggling to correctly document and present your claim.

Visit their website for further information about CICA claims, or contact them for a free initial, no obligation, chat with a specialist CICA lawyer.  Call 0800 612 9660 or 0330 311 2541, email, or access live chat on their website
