How much compensation will I receive?
We understand how important this question is to you. We also realise that very often it is hard to find the answer, so we have designed for you a Criminal Injuries Compensation Calculator, which will help you to find out what the CICA payouts should be.
The compensation calculator gives precise figures for all the different injuries that compensation is payable under the criminal injuries compensation authority scheme.
You can also add additional injuries as it calculates in the same way the CICA does how much compensation for each injury, making the correct reduction in compensation for second and third injuries.
CICA compensation amounts for a criminal injury are 100% of the first injury (most serious injury), 30% of the second (most serious) injury and 15% of the third (most serious) injury. If injuries are the same severity, one is calculated at the lower percentage.
We would advise that you speak to a solicitor to discuss your case and find out if you could have a valid claim.
