The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is provided by the government to financially compensate innocent victims of violent crimes. The size of the award varies to reflect the seriousness of the injury and also take into account any financial losses suffered. Not all applicants will qualify and there is a discount system applied in circumstances where the applicant has a criminal record. If you have been the victim of a crime please contact us and we can take you through the process and assist with making a claim on your behalf.
We benefit from being involved in a network of solicitors dealing with personal injury cases; and can proceed with claims on a “no win – no fee” basis, where appropriate.
I sought support initially from Cairns Brown on recommendation to gain a financial separation and settlement of assets. They offered objective and excellent legal advice informing me fully on what options were available. They supported and advised me, allowing me to progress a very acrimonious situation with integrity and fairness. Circumstance led to further representation in a family court but their expertise meant the best interests of my child were prioritised which was the most important thing. CC April 2017
From initial enquiry to my divorce and financial negotiations being concluded, Cairns Brown were efficient, helpful and reasonable. The advice I was given was excellent, and all the complicated procedures and paperwork were explained to me. In fact, it couldn’t have been easier. They were the third legal firm I spoke to, and were the best by far. VL April 2017
Cairns Brown has advised and represented myself, family and business over the past years (18 years) on many various matters successfully, with the latest issue being with a major utility company and being successful with costs, £6,000 00 being repaid to myself. I would not hesitate to recommend these Solicitors for personal advice or any possible litigations minor or major they may have. DM April 2017
