Awards under a civil claim
Claims against individuals or employers are based on a more detailed assessment of the effects of the assault on the victim rather the one-size fits all tariff system of the CICA. This means that civil awards tend to be larger than the CICA awards.
The level of compensation awarded will be based upon the impact the incident has had upon you. To make sure that we have a full and thorough overview of the issues arising from the assault we will obtain all your medical records and arrange for an assessment by an independent consultant. We will liaise with you about choosing the consultant to make sure that you are completely happy and comfortable with the decision.
In addition to compensation for the mental trauma and any physical injury we will also look to claim for all or any financial losses resulting from the incident. This can include
You can claim for all lost income rather than only after the first 28 weeks as per the CICA and recover legal costs too in a successful civil claim.
