Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim


Have you been the victim of a violent crime and suffered an injury as a result?

If so, you may be able to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). As a general rule, an application must be brought within 2 years of the date of the crime but there are exceptions to this rule, particularly where the individual has been subject to historical acts of abuse.

You may be able to claim for recent or historic abuse

Whether the abuse was recent or historic, our team of expert solicitors will be able to assist you. You may even be able to make a claim if the offender was not convicted of the crime or if the offender was not identified or caught.

Trust our criminal injury claim experience

We understand that it can be very difficult for people to relive the incident they have been through as the psychological effects of the crime can often be more damaging than the physical injuries sustained through the attack. At Harding Evans, our solicitors have many years’ experience in helping clients to claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme and will treat your case with the sensitivity and compassion it deserves.

Getting started

There are a number of hurdles to overcome in making an application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority so this can often be a complicated process.  Issues such as the effect of injuries upon you, working out your loss of earnings and whether medical evidence needs to be taken into account all need to be considered so it is important that you seek legal advice and make your claim as soon as possible.
