The physical and psychological aftermath of an assault can leave you wondering where to turn for help. It can be especially hard if you’ve been injured by someone you know and trust, or if you’ve been let down by other organisations who were supposed to help you.Talking about your assault can be very upsetting which is why we treat criminal injury claims cases with the utmost care, compassion and confidentiality. Always endeavouring to get you the fairest level of criminal injuries compensation
Unlike other areas of personal injury, you do not need to prove who was responsible for assaulting you if you choose to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority ,also known as “CICA”, a government-funded scheme that compensates blameless victims of violent crime.
If you were an adult at the time of the assault, you need to apply for criminal injuries compensation within two years of the assault taking place. This time limit can be extended if you can demonstrate that exceptional circumstances have prevented you from making the personal injury application. Applying for compensation through CICA does not rely on the outcome of a criminal trial if your criminal injuries claim application provides sufficient information for them to evaluate your case.
