What do I need to make a claim for a Criminal Injury


When making a claim for personal injury if you have been the victim of a serious assault it is important that all the relevant details provided are accurate and correct. The attack must have been reported to the police at the time of the incident or shortly after or it cannot be accepted.

When making a claim for criminal injuries it is compulsory to provide the following:


  • The date and location of the crime
  • The name of the police station the crime was reported to
  • Your crime reference number
  • Your GP’s name and surgery address
  • The name and address of your Dental surgery (if you had to have dental treatment as a result of your injuries)
  • Details of any previous claims made to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority
  • Details of any unspent criminal convictions you may have
  • Proof of identity such as a birth certificate


If you knowingly provide incorrect or misleading information you may be prosecuted.
