Claims for Assault Compensation

People have a duty to act in a reasonable manner even when under the influence of alcohol. If you have been the victim of an assault or a physical attack, compensation will help with the cost of any medical care that may be required as well as compensate you for the injury that you have suffered. If you are unable to make a civil claim for compensation against the person who attacked you (for example because they fled the scene and have not been found), you may still be able to claim under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.

Injured by a needle or other sharp object?

A needle stick injury is where the skin is accidently pierced by a needle or other sharp object. As well as the initial wound, needle stick injuries can also lead to infection by various blood borne diseases such as the hepatitis virus.

While the risk of a needle stick injury is higher in places such as hospitals or health centres, injury can still occur in many other places including those accessible to the public. In addition, anyone whose job it is to handle refuse, waste disposal or who undertakes cleaning duties has the potential to be injured by sharp objects if they are not provided with the correct safety equipment.
