The length of time to assess a claim can vary depending on the circumstances of each case. CICA has to contact other agencies such as the police or hospitals to gather information and make an assessment. Sometimes it can take a long time to gather all the information necessary and Galop has found that it is not uncommon for applicants to wait for between twelve and fifteen months for a decision from CICA. Appealing a decision will also take additional time. Once a decision has been made to award criminal injuries compensation then the payment usually follows within a week or two.
