Criminal Injuries Compensation

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)
The CICA is a government funded body which was established specifically to provide a compensation scheme for victims of crime. They deal with claims from individuals who have been injured either physically or mentally by violent crime, however there are certain criteria that have to be met for you to be able to claim:
- You must have reported the assault to the police as soon as possible;
- You must have sought medical attention for the injury;
- You must meet the 2-year deadline criteria;
- You must not have contributed to or caused the incident.
However, please note that whether or not the individual committing the assault was prosecuted by the police is not a factor in your claim.
