Criminal Injury

Criminal Injury Compensation Authority Claims

 

If you have been the victim of a serious violent crime and have sustained physical or mental injury as a result then you are entitled to claim compensation. This includes historic abuse, sexual assault and physical assault. Please call us or use the contact form for a free consultation with no obligation.

I have a criminal record can I still make a claim?
 

Yes as long as the conviction is spent. The CICA excludes awards of compensation if an applicant has an unspent conviction which resulted in a custodial or community service sentence.

 

How long do I have to make a claim to the CICA?

The normal time limit for making a CICA claim is two years from the date of the crime. However, there are some exceptions to the two year rule, including:

 

Children – you can make a claim at any point before the child's twentieth birthday, if the crime was reported to the police while the person was still a child.

 

We can help you assess if there any exceptional circumstances that may apply to your case

 

Can I choose speak to a man or women as the matter is sensitive? 

We have male and female solicitors available to speak to you should you prefer.

 

The court case is ongoing can I start my claim now? 

 

Yes it is best to a make a claim as soon as practicable due to the limitation unless you have been advised by the Police not to yet.

 

I haven’t reported the incident to the Police.

The Scheme requires the incident to have been reported to the police. If the crime for which you are seeking compensation has not been reported to the police, the CICA cannot make a payment. The incident must also be reported to the police as soon as is reasonably practicable. If reported to the police, you must cooperate with the Police as this could be a ground for the CICA to reject or reduce your claim.
