Can I claim for more than one criminal injury?
Yes, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Schemes of 2008 and 2012 allow you to claim for up to three different physical injuries. If you are unfortunate to have suffered multiple physical injuries as a result of an assault, you may find our comprehensive CICA tariff calculator better to use. This CICA calculator can combine more than one injury, and apply the correct level of compensation. This is because the CICA only awards full compensation on the most serious injury. The next most serious injury it pays 30% of the normal tariff compensation. The third or least serious injury it awards 15% of the criminal injuries compensation.
Here is an example of how compensation is paid for multiple criminal injuries
Three injuries are suffered as a result of an unprovoked attack during a burglary. A fractured forearm (radius) with continuing significant difficulty. Broken front teeth requiring crowns and a dislocated elbow with substantial recovery. The injury with the highest award of compensation is the fractured forearm which has a CICA compensation award of £3,500 the elbow is £1,500 and the teeth is £1,000.
Forearm £3,500 @ 100% compensation = £3,500
Elbow £1,500 @ 30% compensation = £450
Teeth £1,000 @ 15% compensation = £150
Total compensation £4,100
Can I claim for psychological injury as well as physical injury?
