Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a violent crime or criminal act, you may be eligible to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

The CICA is government funded and has strict guidelines about awarding compensation for criminal injuries, but it will compensate victims who meet their requirements. These include:

-         you must have received the injury as a result of a crime

-         your injury must be serious enough to require at least two follow up doctor’s appointment

-         your recovery takes at least six weeks

You can claim for physical or psychological injury, or if the injury was deliberate or accidental. You can also claim if you have lost a spouse, partner, parent or child to a fatal criminal injury. You must report the injury to the police. They will not pay for legal representation, in some cases a solicitor is not required but cases vary so we can answer any queries you may have about the process.
