Who pays the costs for a Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims?
The CICA do not pay anything towards your legal costs. If you wish to make an application to the CICA without legal representation you are free to do so and you will not then incur any costs. If you instruct Levenes to pursue your claim we may offer to pursue your case on a Contingency Fee basis. We would make a charge if the claim succeeded. You should check any insurance you have, for example household insurance, to see if you have legal expenses insurance which might cover your legal costs.
