Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a Government organisation responsible for paying out compensation to the victims of criminal assault.
Unlike the usual three-year limit for injury claims, you will normally have only two years to make a claim. To be eligible to claim compensation from the CICA, the assault must have been reported to the police.
