THE CRIMINAL INJURIES COMPENSATION AGREEMENT(S) SCHEME
Criminal Injuries Compensation has been available through a state scheme to the victims of violent crime since 1964. This government organisation makes payments to the victims of violent crimes and we have worked successfully with the CICA to claim compensation for many of our clients.
Although the Criminal Injuries scheme has undergone a number of changes over the years substantial sums can be awarded in respect of the injuries suffered which can be physical or psychological. Compensation can also be awarded to victims of sexual assault and abuse.
