CICA claims for assault victims

If you are punched, kicked, stabbed or shot, you have been physically assaulted. The CICA is a tax payer funded scheme, which entitles blameless victims of crime to receive compensation for assault.

In 2015 there were over 800,000  violent crimes in the UK, with almost half causing an injury to the victim.
