Are You Eligible to Make a Physical Abuse Claim?
If you’ve been the victim of any kind of physical abuse, from consistent bullying to one-off assault, then you could make a claim for compensation. The most important part of this claim is proving that the accused is responsible for your physical abuse. The accused, in this instance, can be both individuals and organisations responsible for creating an unsafe working area. If any company has failed to protect you, or shown negligence in its duty of care, then you will be able to make a claim against them.
Some of the organisations that have been held responsible for creating unsafe environments can include:
- Corporate Businesses.
- Churches and Religious Institutions.
- The Military, including:
- The Army.
- The Navy.
- The Airforce.
- The Police Force.
- Schools, Colleges and Universities.
If you’ve suffered any kind of physical assault as a result of an unsafe working environment, get in touch today. Here at Tylers, we can help you to get the compensation that you need to move on with your life. You’ll need to prove that they have failed in their duty of care towards you. If you’ve been the victim of an assault by employees of the organisation, you can make a claim against both the individual and the business.
It will also be necessary to show that you’ve suffered physical or psychological injuries as a result of this abuse. Although they can be short-term, long-term injuries tend to be worth more compensation. There are all kinds of both physical and psychological injuries you could suffer, from reduced mobility to chronic pain, anxiety or depression.
What If the Physical Abuse Happened a Long Time Ago?
As with almost any kind of personal injury claim, you need to begin legal proceedings within three years of the event. In some cases, this time limit can be a little more flexible if you have mitigating circumstances. Even if the three-year time limit has passed, it can still be worth seeking legal advice on the specifics of your situation.
In cases of physical abuse towards children, the time limit if far more flexible. UK courts, and legal professionals, understand that it can be difficult to make a legal claim when you are underage. If you suffered physical abuse or assault as a child, you will normally be able to claim for up to three years after you turned eighteen.
