Incest and family sexual abuse claim

If you have been the victim and survivor of incest or family sexual abuse then you can seek an award and compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) for the impact that the abuse has had on your life.

Rape and sexual abuse is often seen as a crime committed by a stranger in a dark alley however, more often than not, the abuser is a family member or close family friend relying upon their connections as a cover for their actions.

They will often make the victim feel ashamed of what is happening and use fear and guilt to allow their actions to go unnoticed. What they are doing or have done is still a crime and you are entitled to claim compensation.

The CICA is a government funded organisation that makes payment to the victims of violent crime and this includes rape and sexual assault by a sibling, parent or other family member as well as close friends of the family.

Mike Massen has helped many survivors of sexual assault and abuse claim the compensation they deserve and are entitled to receive and his experience and expertise can help you.

To see how we can help get in touch with us today:

  • Call: 0113 224 7804 / 0797102 1268 (out of hours)
  • email: mike@massen@cohencramer.co.uk
  • Pop your contact details in the box on the right hand side and we will call you back

The level of compensation that can be recovered depends upon the severity and frequency of the attack/abuse as well as the age of the victim; we have set out the various levels that are used by the CICA.  The figures quoted are the same regardless of who abused you or how the abuse took place.

The levels of compensation are based on a tariff system that makes the same level of payment regardless of the age of the person making the claim but you are entitled to seek recovery of financial losses; this can include:

  • lost income (after the first 28 weeks have passed)
  • care from family and friends
  • other, limited financial losses subject to proof of loss
