Assaulted at Work Claims

Assaulted at Work Claims If you have been the victim of an assault at work either by a colleague or a customer then we can assist you with your claim for an award for compensation and damages. It may have been a disgruntled customer that assaulted you or you may have been working when a robbery took place causing you mental as well as possible physical injury. You may even have been assaulted by a colleague.

Whatever the cause or reason behind the attack, you can look to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) for a financial award to compensate you for your injuries and in certain circumstances, financial losses.

Making an application to the CICA can be a long and complex process and Criminal Injuries Claims Advice was set up to provide professional assistance and guidance with making an application for an award.

We have the knowledge and expertise to help you claim the award you deserve.

To find out how we can help, get in touch with us today:

Qualifying for an award

To qualify for an award you need to have:

  • been assaulted in the past two years
  • suffered either physical or mental injury
  • reported the matter to the police as soon as possible after the attack
  • co-operated fully with the police

It does not matter if there has not been an arrest or conviction; these are not needed for a claim to be successful. All you need to show is that it is more likely than not that the incident occurred as you have described.

The CICA may reduce or refuse an award if you have any convictions. However, your Criminal Injury Claims adviser will be able to give you all the information that you need about this.

The level of compensation you receive is based upon a tariff system whereby the award is the same regardless of your age or sex; to see what your award may be, get in touch with us now.
