When can I claim sexual assault compensation?
First and foremost, sexual abuse and sexual assault is a criminal offence and should be reported to the police to bring the abuser to justice. However, a civil claim for compensation can also often be brought against the person who committed the assault or an organisation connected with them, such as an employer. If the perpetrator does not have the financial means to pay compensation and no other party is at fault then sexual assault compensation may be recoverable from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority which is a government funded scheme.
You can bring claims for both physical and psychological injury. however, you must not delay as time limits apply and while allowances can be made for sexual abuse claims, especially when thee victim was a child it is best to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
