Claim injury compensation for an assault at work.

Truth Legal specialises in assault at work and criminal injury claims. We were founded to help people who had suffered violence at work to claim compensation for their injuries – and since 2012 our expert solicitors have been doing just that.

With our extensive experience in assault at work claims, we can provide clear advice on your legal rights and guide you through any compensation claims you may have.

What type of claim for assault can I make?

Claims Against Employers

Employers are duty bound to protect you from assault and criminal injury in the workplace. If your employer knew an attack was likely to occur and did not take any, or sufficient steps to resuce that risk, you are entitled to compensation. 

Criminal Injury Claims

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is a government run scheme established to pay compensation to victims of criminal injury. If you have been assaulted at work, we can support you through a CICA Assault at Work claim.

Claims Against the Assailant

If you know the identity of your attacker, you can bring a claim against them personally. Truth Legal can assist you in holding them accountable for their actions by bringing a civil claim as well as a criminal claim against your assailant.

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Indeed, ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. To that end, Truth Legal sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.
