Compensation for Criminal Assault

Compensation for Criminal Assault Victim
Article by
Dave Koon Koon
I have recently settled a claim which arose when my client suffered a broken jaw and a hand injury because an unprovoked attack during an amateur football game.

My client was the victim of an unprovoked attack by another player and following an attendance at his local A&E Department the seriousness of his injury was confirmed.

The matter was reported to the police and the attacker was arrested and charged with the assault.

My client was referred to me by a former client and after speaking to him I advised him that he could pursue a claim for personal injury through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Following submission of the claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority the matter was investigated and my client’s claim for compensation was approved and he received a four figure sum in settlement.

The purpose of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is to compensate victims of crime who have been injured in an act of violence in England, Scotland or Wales and there are various criteria that must be satisfied in order to successfully pursue a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
