No win no fee assault solicitors

If you have been assaulted you can claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. You can have full legal representation from no win no fee assault solicitors.

What does no win no fee mean?

As solicitors we will act for you on a no win no fee basis, which means you can bring your claim risk free.  There are no legal costs unless you are successful. You can pay your legal costs out of the compensation you receive.

What does my solicitor do for me?

No win no fee assault solicitors, will spend time with you understanding why the assault occurred, and how your injuries affect you. We will need your Police Crime Reference Number, and details of your GP and any Hospitals you have attended as a result of the assault.

We will prepare and submit your claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). We will be in regular contact with the CICA to find out how your claim is progressing.

How does the CICA calculate compensation for an assault?

The CICA will initially obtain a Police Report, to check that your version of events is the same as the one we submitted for you. Once they are happy with the report, they will obtain medical evidence to show what injuries the assault has caused.

The CICA will then make an offer of compensation based on the 2012 CICA scheme. This lists about 450 injuries with the amounts of compensation they will pay.

Here are some typical examples of compensation awarded for assault injuries?

Damage to one or more front teeth requiring crowns £1,000
Concussion with ongoing headaches £1,500
Fracture to bone around the eye requiring an operation £2,400
Fractured jaw bone with continuing significant disability £3,500
Permanently & seriously impaired grip £6,200
Scarring causing serious facial disfigurement £11,000

Your no win no fee assault solicitors will calculate how much compensation you should receive, using a CICA compensation calculator.

There are also time limits in which a claim should be made which can be checked on our CICA time limits calculator.

Providing the offer from the CICA is the same as the figure calculated your solicitors will recommend you accept the offer. If it is not, as you have a no win no fee agreement, you can seek a review of the CICA decision without incurring any legal costs. The no win no fee assault agreement will cover the review.

If for any reason you are not successful your will have no legal costs.

Call no win no fee assault solicitors on 0113 320 5000. Jonathan Winston the head of the team will explain how you can bring your CICA claim. Or email cica@winstonsolicitors.co.uk. We also offer same day claim submission. All you need is your police crime reference number.
