We will take full details from you and ensure that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority have all the information they need to deal with your claim. We will also continue to correspond with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority while they investigate the claim, and we will keep you fully updated.
we may be able to run your claim on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis, which will remove any financial risk to you. If your claim is successful, we will deduct a percentage of your damages which has been pre-agreed by you. If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be required to pay our fees.

We will arrange for an experienced advocate, whether it be a solicitor or barrister, to attend all court hearings with you and put all representations to the judge on your behalf.
