Racial attack claims

If you have been racially attacked, you may be entitled to claim criminal injury compensation, but you will need expert legal advice from a solicitor.

No one should be discriminated against or hurt because of the colour of their skin, nationality or religion, but unfortunately, racist attacks are a fact of life. Many racial attacks happen in the workplace and if you feel that your employer did nothing to stop you from becoming the victim of one you may be eligible for racial attack compensation. If the attack happened outside of the workplace we may also be able to help. We can help you to put a claim in with the CICA if appropriate.

Violence and Harassment

At Blackwater Law, we have successfully dealt with racial attack claims as well as cases of harassment involving racist jokes and other racially-motivated bullying. The Race Relations Act 1976 describes racial harassment as any hostile behaviour which is motivated by racism. Employers and perpetrators that don’t adhere to it can face prosecution.
People from ethnic minorities are one of the most common victims of attacks. Some people have been attacked by others from the same race due to them believing that they were part of a different ethnic group. In any case, we can help you if you feel that you have been the victim of a racial attack.

Strengthening Your Case

We will work closely alongside you to collect as much information as we need, including witness statements, police reports and any pictorial evidence of the attack and any injuries sustained. The more information you can give us, the better, to ensure you have the strongest case possible.

We will keep you updated regularly throughout the process to ensure that you know what is going on at each stage of your compensation claim. We have the experience needed to put robust racial attack compensation claims together, so get in touch today if you’ve been the victim of a racially-motivated attack.
