If you are the victim of a violent crime such as an assault, wounding, mugging or sexual offence, you can claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Regardless of whether the person who committed the crime against you is found and charged, you can still claim.
Reporting your Assault or Injury
You must report the incident immediately and you must assist the police in their investigations and any subsequent prosecution. If you do not, your claim may be rejected.
You must seek medical advice from the hospital and/or your GP straight away, and you must continue to seek medical advice until your injuries are resolved. If you do not, you may not achieve the minimum award.
You must submit your claim to the CICA within 2 years of the incident. If you do not, your claim may be rejected.
It is also essential to contact a trusted legal claims specialist without delay.
