AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents) is celebrating its 35th birthday this year!
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.
Funding for personal injury
It is important that you chose the right option for you so that you are protected financially, so we will give you detailed, tailored advice to help you make this decision. Find out more here.
