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:

- 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

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