Criminal Injuries

If you have been injured as a result of an assault or any other form of violent crime we can help you to make a claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), which is the government body set up to compensate victims of such crime.

We will guide you through the process, ensuring that your case is presented as strongly as possible and liaising with the CICA on your behalf. If your application is unsuccessful we will be able to help you to appeal if you have a good case.

Claim for Criminal Injuries

In order to consider a claim the CICA usually require that the incident was reported to the police within 48 hours and that you co-operated with them. It is therefore very important to report any violent crime which has caused you injury as quickly as possible. The time limit for making a claim to the CICA is 2 years from the date of the incident.

If you’ve suffered from injuries as a result of a crime and you think you’re eligible for a CICA award – or indeed if you have any questions – contact us today.

I was extremely satisfied with the services provided by Levenes solicitors and especially Sevim Savci-Renk who dealt with my personal injury claim. She has been dealing with our legal matters for many years both for myself and my family with great success. She takes ownership in dealing with cases and her recommendations are always in the best interest of her clients. I find her to be highly skilled and professional at all times. I was provided with regular updates of my claim and was always contacted via my choice of contact. She was easily accessible and I received a response to my contacts swiftly. I would strongly recommend this lady to represent you as your solicitor and rate her skills, knowledge and professionalism at 5 stars. I was very happy with the successful outcome of my case. Sila
