Marriage or living with someone does not give your partner the right to attack you, or force you to have sex against your will – this is still an assault or rape, both of which are criminal acts.
If you have been the victim of domestic violence or marital rape you are entitled to apply for a compensation award from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
The CICA is a government funded body that makes payment to the victims of violent crime, including martial rape.
Every year the CICA pays out millions of pounds to victims of violent crime, including those suffering from mental as well as physical injury, as a result of domestic violence and marital rape. The money comes from the government and your attacker need not know you are making a claim.
Making a claim can be a traumatic and complex process, and here at Cohen Cramer can give you the help and assistance you need to claim the compensation you deserve. We have the experience and knowledge to help and guide you through every stage of the process; from completing the application form through to assessment of any award that is made.
