Assault at work compensation

Mr W. came to Digby Brown’s specialist personal injury solicitors in criminal assault claims to pursue compensation for his injuries.

Despite the difficulties involved in establishing the Council were at fault for their employee's actions, our expert personal injury solicitors successfully argued that the Council should have taken preventative action in light of the employee's history of aggressive behaviour.

Digby Brown secured compensation of £4,000 for the assualt at work.
