Criminal Injuries Compensation
Our criminal injuries compensation department has vast experience in maximising compensation for the victims of crime.
Our lawyers can act for Claimants on a Conditional Fee Agreement basis, ensuring that every Claimant can feel free to pursue a claim with peace of mind.
Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme
In 1964, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was established to manage the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme in Britain. It is responsible for the administration of compensation to those who have been injured as a result of crime.
Awards by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority can range from £1,000 up to £500,000. A recent statement provided by the CICA puts the number of yearly UK criminal injury claims at 76,000 applications resulting in over £200,000,000 being paid out to victims.
The scheme may pay compensation even if the offender is not convicted of the crime causing your injury and even if the offender is not identified or caught.
If you think you have a case and could claim compensation for a criminal injury or require further assistance then contact Linnitts Solicitors now.
Victims of Abuse
Child abuse claims
We have a Department dedicated to assisting victims of child abuse claim compensation where the abuse has taken place in care homes, the church, schools or similar institutions. It is often essential that we work with police from across the UK to secure a criminal conviction which frequently results in recovering compensation through civil claims.
Pysical or Sexual abuse
The very delicate nature of claims brought by victims of physical or sexual abuse, requires you to be able to have complete trust and confidence in your lawyer as it is so important that you are able to talk about your case in complete confidence with the reassurance that your anonymity will be protected at all times.
Counselling and support
Linnitts Solicitors can also assist in arranging you counselling and support, together with expert medical help as appropriate. We have links with some of the best known charitable organisations in the country for the protection of children and vulnerable adults, and as with all our legal services our commitment to "no win no fee" funding means Claimants are free to concentrate on pursuing their cases without the worry of expensive legal fees.
We will never rush you or put you under any pressure to pursue a claim. If you would like to talk to us in confidence then please contact Linnitts.
