GARDA COMPENSATION SCHEME
Members of An Garda Síochána must frequently put themselves in harm’s way as part of their job which can unfortunately result in injury due to criminal behaviour such as assault. Gardai can be left needing medical treatment as well as physical and psychological therapy which can permanently impact all areas of a victims life.
Following the introduction of the Garda Siochana (Compensation) Act 2022, if a member or former member has been injured or fatally injured in the course of duty, the Act allows for an Initial Assessment Application to be made to the Garda Commissioner within 6 months following the date of injury or date of death before an application is made to the Personal Injury Assessment Board (PIAB).
