Criminal injury compensation claims are handled by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).The CICA is government funded and to qualify for compensation you must meet strict requirements. Before you can make a claim, you must have reported the incident to the police.
Criminal injury claims can be for physical or psychological injuries, and for injuries sustained both accidentally and deliberately. If you are eligible for compensation, the damages awarded for your claim are dependent on the circumstances of the crime committed, and the injuries sustained. Damages may be disallowed or reduced if your involvement in the incident contributed to your injury.
