In injury claims, should you disclose the total figure of compensation to your injured party where they have suffered a brain injury and lack capacity to manage their finances?
We represent adults and children who have been seriously injured when violently attacked. We also represent families bereaved as a result of an attack. If you are in this unfortunate situation, one option is to bring a claim against a government-funded body called the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) specialists
We specialise in CICA claims for people who have suffered very serious injuries, such as the brain, spinal, complex orthopaedic or psychiatric injuries. Our in-depth medical knowledge of these types of injuries, and experience working alongside medical experts enables us to fully understand what injuries our clients have suffered and the full impact they have on their lives.
CICA claims are governed by specific rules and timescales, which are strictly applied. We are happy to have a free, initial conversation with you to determine whether you might be entitled to bring a claim before you make a decision, even if only to put your mind at rest.
