Welcome to the CCB Criminal Injury Claims website

Welcome to the CCB criminal injury claims website. This service is managed by the Criminal Claims Bureau, a regulated legal firm providing legal services to victims of crime. We help people obtain criminal injuries compensation following abuse or assault in the UK. 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 agency called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) that has been set up specifically to administer a compensation scheme for victims of crime.

The scheme has very strict eligibility rules which you should be aware of before you consider submitting your claim application:

To make a claim:

  • You must have reported the assault to the police as soon as practicable
  • You must have sought medical attention for your any 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 actuallyprosecuted by the police

If your claim has been rejected by the CICA you may wish to speak to us about representation during any review or appeal. For those who suffer injury or harm in a crime abroad in an EU state we can also advise you on your right to obtain redress.

Has your claim already been declined?

If your claim has been rejected by the CICA, you may wish to speak to us about representation during any review or appeal. We provide tribunal appeal advice and advocacy ensuring you one expert point of contact throughout your case.

We can help with claims involving a rape assault or historical sexual abuse. Our advisors are also specialists in handling Domestic violence compensation claims.
