Sexual assault in the health sector

Sexual Assault in the Health Sector. Health care providers such as doctors, nurses, orderlies, cleaning staff and similar who have been the victim of sexual assault while at work, may be entitled to claim compensation. Claims can be made for both physical and mental injuries, as well as any financial losses that may have incurred as a result of the attack.

We have the expertise and knowledge to advise as to the best path to take to claim the maximum compensation. While compensation will not make up for what you have been through, this compensation is yours by right and the only redress which is available when bringing a civil claim for injury under English law.

To see how we can help:

Claim against the employer of an attacker

If the assault has been carried out by a colleague or a member of management with the NHS, it may be possible to bring a claim against your employer as an organisation rather than against the individual that attacked you. This greatly increases the chances of making the recovery of compensation as the NHS has the appropriate cover in place to meet such claims.

Application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority

If no claim can be made against the NHS or other insured organisation then you may want to consider making an application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. The CICA is a government-funded organisation which makes payments to the victims of violent crime. This includes sexual assault and rape.
