How quickly can I get my criminal injury compensation?

We understand the quicker you can be compensated, the sooner you can move on from this traumatic period of your life.

Over many years we have developed our system for obtaining your criminal injury compensation as quickly as possible.

We start by obtaining the right information at the right time. We do this by using our own claim form, which reduces the amount of information you need to provide at the start of the claim, which helps you to provide us with this information more quickly, so that we can submit your claim sooner.

Use our Criminal Injuries Compensation Calculator as a guide to how much you could claim. The figures are based on the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority’s (CICA) tariff and so provide an accurate estimate.

We submit your claim online. We then work with you to obtain the additional information we will need from you. By doing it this way, we start your case sooner.

Depending on the type of claim you have, the information the criminal injuries compensation authority need and the level of compensation you are entitled to, we can obtain compensation in as little as 4 months. However where there are delays in obtaining medical evidence or police information it can take 12 – 18 months, and in very complex cases where there are large loss of earnings it can take years. In those cases we always seek an interim payment.
