Formerly known as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeals Panel (CICAP), we consider appeals against decisions made by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). We only deal with appeals on claims for compensation for criminal injuries made on or after 1 April 1996 under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
Claims for criminal injuries compensation are now determined by the First-tier Tribunal of the Tribunals Service, a new statutory body established by the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement (TCE) Act 2007. You can find further information about the (TCE) Act, and how its implementation will create a new unified Tribunals system, on the Tribunals Service website.
The Tribunal is overseen by the Principal Judge (Criminal Injuries Compensation) who is based in London along with his support team.
