  • If you have suffered injury or psychological harm as a result of a criminal act, you might be able to seek compensation.

    Whilst nothing will take away the trauma you have experienced, by making a claim you can at least focus on an outcome that may help rather than hinder your life. You have that opportunity.

    A “No win No fee” claim can be made against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, otherwise known as the CICA. This organisation run a government backed scheme aimed at compensating people who have been injured in the course of a crime. There are specific criteria that need to be met but the procedures can be very straightforward. We can guide you through the process from start to finish.

Are you entitled to make a claim..?

 

  • Sexual abuse or rape assault

    It is possible that you can make a compensation claim to the CICA if you satisfy the following criteria:

    1. You reported the matter to the police within a reasonable timeframe
    2. You then cooperated with the police at all times
    3. You apply for compensation within 2 years of the crime OR your report of the crime to the police.

    It does NOT matter if the perpetrator was prosecuted or if the court case is pending.

    It does NOT matter if no medical attention was sought after the incident.

  • Making a claim following a violent assault

    It is possible that you can make a compensation claim to the CICA if you satisfy the following criteria:

    1. You reported the matter to the police within a reasonable timeframe
    2. You then cooperated with the police at all times

    4. It is expected that you seek medical attention for any injuries suffered. To not do so may affect your claim.
