Criminal injuries

If you have been an innocent victim of a violent crime, there are three ways in which you can seek compensation. Firstly, you could make a claim again the assailant – though even in a successful case it can be difficult to obtain money from the perpetrator. Secondly, you could make a claim against an employer where the injury occurred in a workplace if the employer could have prevented the crime. Finally you may be able to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), who run a government funded Scheme.

Financial assistance can make a big difference when it comes to getting your life back on track following a criminal injury. To find out more about making a criminal injury claim please speak to one of our accredited lawyers. Only specialist criminal injury lawyers are listed on this page.

To make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority there is no need to wait for a successful criminal prosecution in order to make a claim. To qualify for compensation, the general rule is that you need to claim within two years of the crime being committed. You must also have reported the crime to the police as soon as possible. There are exceptions to these rules but they must be very good reasons not to have complied with them. You can claim for both physical or mental injury - but only those mental injuries which are defined by the scheme. Some relatives and dependants of people killed by a crime can also bring a claim.

Type of criminal injuries

  • Violent attacks and assaults
  • Sexual assault and abuse
  • Attacks by dogs – but only where a dog has been deliberately set on someone
  • Injuries involving vehicles – but only where the victim was deliberately targeted. For other vehicle accidents there may be alternative ways in which to obtain compensation

Types of compensation

Compensation is available for injuries, loss of earnings or earning capacity and what are termed “special expenses” such as the cost of equipment, adaptations to accommodation and the cost of care and supervision required as a consequence of the injuries.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
