Criminal injuries or assault

Being attacked or assaulted is an upsetting and distressing experience that often results in physical or psychological injuries. If you’ve been the target of an attack, our criminal injury specialists are here to offer the guidance and support you need. We can help you make a claim for compensation as well as providing practical help and legal advice.

Even if the person who attacked you hasn’t been caught - or isn’t in a position to pay damages - you may still be able to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This government organisation makes payments to the victims of violent crimes and at Smith Roddam Solicitors we have worked successfully with the CICA to claim compensation for many of our clients.

We understand that talking about your experience may be upsetting but our caring solicitors will do all they can to put you at ease whilst discussing the details of your case. With in-depth knowledge of criminal injury law, we have helped many people claim the compensation they deserve.

If you’d like to find out how we can help you, call us 01388 881 611. Our free initial assessment promise means you can discuss your options with us in confidence before deciding what action to take.
