Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the CICA?

The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority is a government organisation that can pay money (‘an award’) to people who have been physically or mentally injured because they were the blameless victim of a violent crime such as an assault. Whilst you must have notified the police to be eligible to make a CICA claim, the offender does not necessarily have to have been convicted of, or even charged with the crime for you to make a claim. However, your claim could be affected by your behaviour, your criminal record, your failure to co-operate with the police, or if you have delayed making the claim.

How do I make an assault injury compensation claim?

If you have suffered an injury as a result of an assault, it’s best to get legal advice from an experienced personal lawyer.

We offer a Free No Obligation Case Review so that we can understand more about the assault circumstances and to advise you on whether or not you have a claim with the utmost confidentiality.

We will guide and support you throughout the personal injury claims process via the CICA, to secure compensation for your injuries. We handle each case with understanding, sensitivity, and compassion.

As a local firm, we can also arrange home visits or meet you at a hospital if required.

How much is my claim worth?

Every compensation claim for an assault depends on the severity of the injury.

In handling your claim, as well as securing compensation for pain and suffering, we will look at financial aspects such as medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, loss of earnings you may have had as a result of the accident. We will also factor into the value of your claim any long term medical expenses that you may incur for life-changing injuries that require ongoing medical treatment.

We will also seek to obtain interim payments where possible to help you to avoid financial hardship caused by an assault.

Our aim is to get you the highest amount of compensation quickly and stress-free so that you can get your life back on track.

How long do I have to make a claim?

For the majority of victims, any assault compensation claims must be made within three years of the date of the incident. There are, however, some exemptions to this rule in instances whereby you may be able to make a claim for an assault dating back further. Claims under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme must usually be made within two years of the incident date. As specialist personal injury lawyers, we will be able to advise you upon these important time limits.
