We are solicitors helping victims of serious injury, assault and abuse claim compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme
If you’ve been physically or psychologically injured by a violent crime or sexually abused in the last two years you could be entitled to compensation.
GLP Solicitors are one of the UK’s leading experts in Criminal Injuries Compensation Law and can operate on a no win, no fee basis.
Criminal injuries compensation law is a highly specialised area. Not all solicitors have experience in this field.
The necessary gathering of evidence and the way in which the claim is presented to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is all important. Equally, it is imperative to have an in depth knowledge of the workings of the scheme and the way in which the CICA will process and deal with the application. GLP has that knowledge and experience that will make a difference.
Many thousands of claims are refused by the CICA each year due to the inadequate preparation by the applicant, and a lack of understanding of the Scheme. It is also likely that many people accept an award that is actually too low.
An expert understanding is needed to ensure that the claim is processed promptly and efficiently and that challenges are made where and when appropriate. Victims might be told that they do not need a solicitor but this is a complex Scheme with many pitfalls. GLP can guide and advise you through the criminal injury claim process.
