Physical assault compensation claims

If you have suffered injury or trauma due to a physical assault, you have several options to claim compensation from those responsible.

You may be able to claim:

  • compensation from the person found guilty of the assault through the criminal court process
  • personal injury compensation through the civil court process
  • public liability compensation following assault if an organisation contributed to, or is at fault for, the behaviour of your assailant. For example, schools, bars, clubs or churches may be liable for the actions of their employees.

Compensation may cover medical costs (including future costs); lost income; pain, suffering and lost enjoyment of life; and home help and attendant care.
