What is CICA?

The CICA is a government-funded scheme which compensates victims who have suffered injury/injuries as a result of a violent crime.

The scheme covers both physical and psychological injuries. In order to claim for a psychological injury, however, you must have been diagnosed with a recognised condition by a psychologist or psychiatrist.

    • "My solicitor (Emily) made the process really clear and easy to follow. It was my first time dealing with any legal issues, and my solicitor made it so much less scary (I didn't want to use a legal firm at first, as it was too daunting).

      The case ended up with a great outcome; I wouldn't be able to get anywhere with it if it hadn't been for my solicitor."
