How can I receive CICA compensation for a broken leg?

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, pays compensation to blameless victims of crime. A broken leg often occurs as a result of a violent assault. This might be from the blow itself or trying to avoid a punch or kick and falling to the ground as a result.

Breaks occur to the femur, also known as the thigh bone. The tibia or shin bone and the fibula the smaller bone in your lower leg. Sometimes fibula is misspelt fibia.

How much compensation can I receive for a broken leg?

The Criminal Injuries Compensation scheme 2012 sets out a list of injuries with specific amounts of compensation for each one. It is called a tariff list, and has about 400 different injuries caused by assaults listed.

Each type of injury, e.g. broken, femur, tibia or fibula not only has a specific level of compensation for the injury, it also has different amounts of compensation for the recovery from the injury. Injuries that cause permanent damage will usually pay more compensation, even where the original injury might be considered more minor.

Is it possible to calculate the exact amount of compensation I should receive?

Yes it is, as we have created specific CICA compensation calculators for individual injuries. There is a leg injury compensation calculator which covers Femur injuries, Tibia injuries and Fibula injuries. Click on them to go the the specific compensation calculator.

Can you act for me to bring my claim?

We would be delighted to do this, as we know what it takes to make sure you are successful in your claim. Whilst it is straightforward to see how much compensation you are entitled to, it is harder to make the CICA pay out the compensation.

Why don’t they just pay out once an application is made?

The CICA is a government organisation which is funded by the taxpayer. As with most departments that cost money, the government in their drive for austerity, are looking at ways to reduce the amount it costs. This means they are making it harder than ever to obtain compensation. We have been obtaining compensation for victims of crime, suffering injuries such as broken legs, for over 20 years and have a very good record in obtaining the most compensation in the shortest amount of time. We believe we make a genuine difference.
