Criminal injury compensation lawyers - Manchester

If you have been an innocent victim of a violent crime, there are three ways in which you can seek compensation. Firstly, you could make a claim again the assailant – though even in a successful case it can be difficult to obtain money from the perpetrator. Secondly, you could make a claim against an employer where the injury occurred in a workplace if the employer could have prevented the crime. Finally you may be able to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), who run a government funded Scheme.

Financial assistance can make a big difference when it comes to getting your life back on track following a criminal injury. To find out more about making a criminal injury claim please speak to one of our accredited lawyers. Only specialist criminal injury lawyers are listed on this page.
