Mrs K., a home carer, suffered a soft tissue injury to her left shoulder when she was assaulted at work.

Criminal assault at work compensation

In situations involving criminal assault, personal injury compensation is pursued through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

The time limit to make a claim is two years from the date of the assault so it is important in these situations to instruct a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible.

Digby Brown’s specialist solicitors in criminal assault claims assisted with the application and submitted the claim on behalf of Mrs K., successfully securing compensation for her through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Work injury claim for criminal assault

As well as claiming personal injury compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, Digby Brown’ solicitors pursued a work injury claim against her employers - not an easy case to pursue in a complex area of the law.

Digby Brown’s expert solicitors, after court action, successfully obtained £7,750 for Mrs K.
