First of all I apologise if this is in the wrong section but I'm not certain of the correct area for this query.


I recently received an award from the CICA after being the victim of an assault,

It's a long story but I'll keep it short and sweet,



The original incident happened in 2011,

I applied 6 months later after I came out of hospital.



I received the original offer which I appealed,

after that offer was appealed I appointed a solicitor to deal with it on my behalf who took care of the appeal.



After I completed the appeal the court case finished and the Judge ordered one of the defendants to pay £1000.

I informed my solicitor of this and assumed that they would inform the CICA.



It took 2 years for the CICA to make their enquires and finish the appeal

but eventually I got an increased offer from the CICA which was accepted.


After receiving the money I realised that there had been no deductions made for the £1000 compensation

( I have only received a portion of this to date),


I spoke to my solicitor to query this , who by this point had taken their fee's from me

and they told me I should refer to the CICA. I



phoned them and queried it gave them all the information and

they told me they would be in touch as i may have to repay that amount of the money which is fair enough.



That was 2 months ago and I haven't heard anything since.


I'm fully aware that they are entitled to the £1000 and I would have no issue's with returning the amount that I have received from the courts,

but I'm really worried that they may ask for the full amount back,



I'm a bit annoyed as I did tell my solicitor in 2012 after the court case and they clearly haven't informed the CICA

on this which is a mistake on their part but



I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on what I should do and what the potential outcomes/timescales are for this?


I'm getting quite worried because I've got the money put away but scared to do anything with it incase

I get letters informing me that I need to give everything back.
