Anyone who has suffered a personal injury as a result of a violent crime is entitled to apply to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority for compensation, however it has recently been reported that a large number of victims are failing to claim the compensation they deserve because they are unaware of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. Victims that are claiming compensation are complaining that the CICA application is complex and they are having to wait years for their compensation!
I think this is terrible, having to wait years for the compensation you deserve especially when it has been recently reported that the number of applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority has fallen 23% but it’s still taking longer for the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority to process applications.
