Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims

If you have been injured in a violent crime and suffered either physical or psychological harm then you may be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Such crimes can be very varied including assaults, sexual abuse and hit and run accidents and we have extensive experience in dealing with all types of CICA claims. We may be able to assist you even if the perpetrator of the attack was never caught or convicted. It is important that you report the incident to the Police as soon as possible and assist them with their enquiries and equally important that your start your claim as soon as possible as the claim must be submitted to the CICA within 2 years of the date of the incident.
Now is the time to take the first step towards claiming appropriate compensation – getting you what you deserve. Speak to us today on 0800 389 1978 to find out how we can help.
