The Criminal Injuries Compensation Tariff (Annex E of CICA Scheme) is a tariff table used in the United Kingdom to compensate victims of violent crime. It is administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), which is a government agency that operates independently of the police and the courts.
CICA tariff has a range of compensation payments for victims of violent crime based on the severity of their injuries. The tariff ranges from a minimum payment of £1,000 to a maximum payment of £500,000.
The compensation payments are based on a set of guidelines that take into account the type and severity of the injuries, the impact on the victim’s life, and any financial losses they have incurred as a result of the crime. The compensation can cover things such as loss of earnings, medical expenses, and the cost of rehabilitation.
To be eligible for compensation, the victim must have been injured as a result of a violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales. The victim must also have reported the crime to the police and cooperated with the investigation.
It’s important to note that the CICA can refuse a compensation claim if it deems that the victim’s behavior contributed to the crime, or if the victim has a criminal record. Additionally, the CICA may reduce the compensation payment if the victim has received compensation from other sources, such as insurance or a civil claim against the perpetrator.
