The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) was set up by the government to pay compensation to victims of violent crime. You can contact CICA on its official site.
CICA does not pay for the cost of a lawyer. and you can make a claim without using one, but it can be helpful to receive expert legal advice - especially as compensation claims over criminal injury can become very complicated.
