Criminal injuries

Innocent victims of violent crime unfortunately not only have to deal with the trauma and consequences of the crime that took place, but also of their injuries which can at times be severe and life-changing.

As a serious injury firm with a wealth of experience in such cases, we understand how much of an impact such traumatic events have on victims, the right steps to take to take your claim further, and how to help you on the road to recovery.

Our experience in dealing with CICA claims has seen Claim Today Solicitors develop an expertise in claiming compensation against criminal injuries and dealing with the red tape and paperwork that comes with dealing with these particular claim types.

Through our commitment Claim Today, Plan for Tomorrow, we will ensure that you have access to the best of a wide network of quality medical professionals, in order to fully understand your issues and challenges, as well as organise adjustments to your home and help source any necessary care to help you get on the road to recovery. We will also ensure that your family receives the support they need to move past the injury and plan for tomorrow.


CICA claims are compensation claims against criminal injury to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, which is the Government’s body for victims of violent crime.

CICA pays out compensation to victims based on the severity of any injuries may have received from a criminal. Some people also use CICA to claim for loss of earnings and other expenses. Claims to CICA need to be submitted within two years of a crime taking place.

No win no fee

Personal injury compensation claims, clinical negligence claims, and serious injury claims made with Claim Today Solicitors are offered with “no win no fee”. Meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t pay a penny.

The main benefits of No Win No Fee are that there is no money to pay up front, and only to be paid as a percentage of your total compensation amount at the end of a winning case. Meaning you need not worry about money in order to make a claim, and to benefit from legal advice as soon as possible.
