CICA calculator (2024 updated) | Winston Solicitors Skip to main content

This calculator has been designed to provide prospective applicants with an rough guide to the likely criminal injuries compensation that they may be entitled to under the CICA scheme which was revised in February 2019.

These calculations are an approximate guide to the amount you might expect to receive - the final assessment of your award is made by the CICA and may well differ. It is strongly recommended that you seek formal legal advice on your claim.

Please note for multiple physical injuries only the severest three will be included in the compensation calculation and the lesser two of those attract a reduced tariff.

To use the calculator please choose an injury type and then click and follow the instructions.
