Physical Assault Claims

Trustpilot 5 stars
Home » Personal Services » Crime of Violence Claims (CICA) » Physical Assault

A physical assault is the most common form of claim that is submitted against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA.) They can often involve unprovoked attacks, sometimes with the suspect using a weapon to inflict the injuries.

Some attacks can be premeditated and involve a calculated plot to inflict injury on their victim, and others may be isolated, unplanned situations that have escalated out of control. Whatever the circumstances, such physical assaults can result in long term, life changing injuries. These injuries may be both physical and psychological in nature.

Oakwood Solicitors are leading assault claim experts. We are able to offer expert advice on all potential claims you may have as a victim of a physical assault. We are happy to conduct an initial free assessment of your claim.
