The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is a government scheme, created to compensate victims of violent crime who have suffered a personal injury within England, Scotland or Wales.
You cannot claim for the same injury twice, therefore you cannot receive compensation through CICA as well as through the civil claims process. If you choose to pursue a civil claim for compensation, you can still lodge an application with CICA and request that your application is stayed pending the outcome of those proceedings.
Claims to CICA are subject to strict time limits. Claims must be made within 2 years of the date of the incident or, if you were a child at the time of the incident, by your 20th birthday. CICA has a discretion to allow applications to be made out of the time limit. However, once a decision has been made it is final and cannot be appealed. Whilst CICA’s decision is final, this does not affect any civil claim.
For more details on CICA see Justice Government.
