When can you make a claim for Criminal Injury Compensation?
According to the CICA claims for criminal injury compensation can be considered if you have suffered from the following:
Mental or physical injury following a crime of violence;
Sexual or physical abuse;
Loss of earnings - where you have no or limited capacity to work as the direct result of a criminal injury;
Special expenses payments - these cover certain costs you may have incurred as a direct result of an incident. You can only ask the CICA to consider special expenses if your injuries mean you have been unable to work or have been incapacitated to a similar extent for more than 28 weeks;
A fatality caused by a crime of violence including bereavement payments, payments for loss of parental services and financial dependency, and funeral payments.

Criminal Injury compensation Time Limits
Under the current scheme, the two-year time limit from the date of the incident exists. However, in some cases (such as those which involve historic abuse), the CICA can consider waiving the time limit depending on the circumstances the incident took place. This means often the 2-year limit would then apply from the date the matter was reported to the police. If you are unsure about the time limit of your claim contact our team on
