Being the victim of an assault can leave you traumatised and seriously damage your confidence – but you don't have to go through it alone, and it is possible to get justice from those responsible. If you've been assaulted, our solicitors could help you claim compensation for any physical injuries or psychological trauma you've experienced as a result.
The majority of assault compensation claims need to be made through the
Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), the body that deals with claims from victims of violent crime. You can make a claim through the CICA yourself, but it helps to have the experts on your side to gather specialist evidence, and appeal any decisions you disagree with.
You can claim through the CICA if you were a blameless victim of a violent crime – which means that your behaviour did not contribute to or cause the assault. The assault needs to have been reported to the police, and you normally have two years from the date the assault took place to make a claim.
We may even be able to help you claim compensation for assault even if your assailant was never caught, identified or convicted. Contact us today on
