Assaults can happen in various situations and each brings its unique challenges and consequences. Some common scenarios where assaults take place include:
The range of injuries that can arise from assaults is wide. In addition to physical trauma, assault injuries often bring significant emotional and distress. Conditions such as anxiety, (PTSD) and emotional trauma often accompany physical injuries.
Making a claim for an assault injury can be slightly different to the process involved in other injuries. If the person responsible for your injuries hasn’t been found or isn’t in a financial position to pay your compensation, you may be able to make a claim through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA), which is a government organisation put in place to help innocent victims of a violent crime for their suffering. We can make your claim through the CICA on your behalf.
At Switalskis, we’re committed to assisting you through the process of pursuing an assault injury claim. With Switalskis, you're not just seeking compensation; you're partnering with a team that genuinely cares about your wellbeing.

We're not only here to provide expert legal advice, but also a compassionate and understanding service during this tough period in your life.
The amount of compensation you could receive for an assault injury can vary depending on the extent of your injury and financial losses, as well as whether a claim is submitted via the CICA as they operate a tariff of injury scheme.
If you pursue a civil claim, tour compensation generally falls into two main categories:
The final compensation amount will depend on the severity of your injuries and the specific financial toll they've taken on you. Assault injuries can often have a lasting impact on your life, and the compensation you receive should adequately reflect this. We’re here to help you secure a settlement that not only meets your financial needs but also acknowledges the emotional trauma you've endured.
We handle the majority of our assault injury claims on a no win, no fee basis. This means you won't have to worry about paying your legal costs to us if your claim isn't successful. There are also no upfront fees to pay. Instead, any costs will be deducted from your final compensation amount, which we'll calculate with this in mind.
You might also find that your existing insurance policies can contribute to your legal expenses. For instance, if the assault happened in a setting covered by specific insurance, such as a public space or workplace, you may be able to recoup some costs that way.
We're here to make this process as straightforward and stress-free as possible while delivering the legal expertise and compassionate support you need at this challenging time.
While it's completely understandable to feel overwhelmed after experiencing an assault injury, taking specific steps can significantly help in the process of making a claim for compensation:
