Criminal Injury Solicitor

Have You Been The Victim Of A Violent Crime?

If you have been injured, you might be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Awards from £1,000 to £500,000 are available for mental and physical injuries.

The priority of the police is to apprehend criminals so it is often up to you to take the steps necessary to start a claim: While you might be offered counselling or some other support, getting the financial compensation you deserve is your responsibility.

Helping You Deal With The Trauma Of Violent Crime

Woodward Solicitors is here to help. We are an experienced group of solicitors based between St. Helens and Wigan. Our team is used to supporting people who have become caught up in a criminal attack through no fault of their own.

By letting us take care of the legalities, you can focus on getting over the trauma of what has happened to you. Because we regularly handle this type of case, we understand how the process works. Unlike other personal injury claims, CICA cases do not involve insurance companies. Instead, we deal with a government-backed body that operates under a completely different set of rules.

Our St. Helens criminal injury solicitors will ensure that your claim is processed as efficiently as possible and get you the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.

The types of cases we deal with include:

  • Assault injury
  • Attacks in nightclubs and other licensed premises
  • Racially motivated attacks or threats
  • Mental and physical injuries from sexual abuse
  • Robberies at work

It is important that you report the crime to the police and help them with their enquiries as much as you can.

You should also contact us as soon as possible because CICA claims must start within two years of the incident. To arrange your free consultation, call us on 08453 400061 or get in touch online. Our offices are opposite Haydock Park racecourse in Newton-le-Willows.
