Frequently Asked Questions

What is sexual assault?

Sexual assault does not require physical injury to be classed as an assault.

Unwanted groping or touching in a sexual manner can be sufficient to allow a claim for sexual assault if it can be shown that the incident(s) caused the distress and trauma that forms the basis of your claim.


If you are not sure as to whether you have been subject to sexual assault get in touch with us today. 

How long do I have to claim?


You have three years from the date you were assaulted or your 18th birthday whichever is later however and in certain circumstances the courts are prepared to extend this period.

All cases turn on the individual circumstances and you should not be put off making a claim just because you are outside of this period.

If you think you have a claim then get in touch with us today.

How much can I claim?

It is very difficult to say at the outset of a case what level of compensation you may receive as each case is different.

How long will my claim take?

It is difficult to give any accurate timescale as each case is different, and depends upon your circumstances and those of the claim.

Will I have to go to court?


It is very difficult, without knowing the circumstances of your claim, to advise as to whether the matter is likely to go to court. If liability is admitted and the third-party insurers make a reasonable and appropriate offer of compensation then there will no need to go to court.


You will only need to attend court if there is a dispute as regards to whether the third-party insurers are in fact responsible for the assault or if they fail to offer an appropriate level of compensation.


If you do go to court will make sure that you have representation by a suitably qualified and experienced barrister and while it may not be a pleasant experience be assured that we will do all we can to make sure that it is as painless as possible.
