Whether compensation is available to those who have been the victim of assault depends on many factors, including:
- whether the perpetrator has assets;
- whether an insurance policy or a Government Fund for victims of crime is available to respond; or
- whether another entity, such as a bar or other institution may be in some way responsible for the event.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board may be an option for persons assaulted by a perpetrator who has no assets.
