Criminal Injury Claims

Welcome to the CIC Criminal Injury Claims website. This service is managed by Winston Solicitors LLP a regulated UK law firm. We help people obtain criminal injuries compensation following personal injury sustained as a result of a criminal assault. If you have been the victim of such an assault you may be entitled to make a claim.

In the UK there is a Government funded body called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) that has been set up specifically to administer a compensation scheme for victims of crime.

As long as your particular situation meets the scheme criteria - you may be able to claim.


To make an enquiry about your case: please call us on 0113 320 2233 now or complete the form opposite for an immediate opinion on your potential claim.


To make a claim:

  • You must have reported the assault to the police as soon as possible
  • You must have sought medical attention for your personal injury
  • You must meet the 2 year deadline criteria
  • You must not have caused or contributed to the "incident" in any way
  • You can claim even if the person committing the assault was not actually prosecuted by the police

We help individuals to make their claim through the above scheme and offer a No win No fee service that provides you with the expert advice you need and an unrivalled professional service.


We are different to other internet legal advisors because we are a team of lawyers that specialise in no win no fee criminal injuries compensation. We work hard to ensure that you receive the best possible service and the maximum award allowable under the scheme. Contact us today for an immediate review of your particular case.
