How can I make my claim?

When it comes to making a claim for rape or sexual assault, there are three possible ways of claiming the compensation you deserve.

Application for compensation to the CICA.

You can apply for an award from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The CICA is a government-funded organisation that compensates the victims of violent crime, including rape and sexual assault victims.

Make a civil claim directly against your attacker.

You can sue the person who attacked you and claim your compensation from them directly. You are entitled to make recovery for the pain, suffering and loss they have caused in the same way that you sue someone who has crashed into your car and caused your injuries.

Make a civil claim against your attacker’s employer.

If it can be shown that there is a link between the employment and the assault we would bring a claim against the employer.  This can occur if you were, for example, sexually assaulted by a colleague at work or by a doctor during a medical examination.

If you were assaulted by someone who had the ‘care’ of you we can claim against the organisation directly. This can include religious minister, scoutmaster, trainer or sports coach.
