Slater and Gordon Lawyers has a Criminal Injury Claims department with many years' experience in maximising compensation for the victims of crime. We will act for any criminal injuries claimant on a conditional fee agreement basis, ensuring every claimant can feel free to pursue a claim with peace of mind.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was established in 1964 to manage the criminal injuries compensation scheme in Britain. It is responsible for the administering of criminal injury compensation to those who have been injured as a result of crime. Since its introduction it has provided some tangible acknowledgement of society's sympathy for innocent victims of violent crime.
The scheme may pay criminal injuries compensation even if the offender is not convicted of the crime causing your injury and even if the offender is not identified or caught.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers also has a department dedicated to helping survivors of child abuse claim for compensation. Whether the abuse was recent or historic, our specialist team can help you. We understand the delicate nature of claims brought by victims of sexual or physical abuse, and how important it is to be able to talk about your case in confidence to people who are experienced in dealing with such matters sensitively and discreetly.
Our vastly experienced team has successfully pursued civil claims for compensation against religious organisations, local authorities, sports organisations, private schools, care organisations and abusers themselves.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers have offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Preston and Watford.
Solicitors at Slater and Gordon Lawyers are members of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) & the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL).
