What is the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)?

The CICA is a government agency established to compensate victims of crimes of violence for their physical or psychological injuries. If you have sustained injuries because of a crime of violence, you may be able to claim compensation.

Any compensation you receive is funded through the government CICA scheme and will not be paid by the person who caused your injuries. The CICA will not inform the person who committed the crime against you that you have made a claim.

For more serious injuries where you have been unable to return to work due to your injuries, claiming compensation through the CICA can be quite a complex process. Therefore, we would always recommend you speak to a specialist solicitor who will advise you and, if necessary, assist with your application.
