The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) Claims

CICA Claim

If you’ve been the victim of crime, we can give you a helping hand.

If you or one of your loved ones has been the victim of a violent attack, claiming damages can not only give you compensation for your injuries, it can help you get your life back on track after a traumatic and frightening experience.

  • Loss of a fingernail
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Mental anxiety
  • Sexual abuse
  • Scarring
  • Fractures
