Physical assaults and one-off incidents can take place anywhere and at any time. There may be no warning of the impending danger, or it can be the culmination of a long period of threatening and intimidating behaviour. They can often be fueled by alcohol or alternative illegal substances. In some circumstances, injuries may be sustained due to a physical assault following a case of mistaken identity. These violent attacks may or may not involve a weapon.
In all of these scenarios, the victim can be left with significant physical and psychological injuries for which they may be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)
