Can I claim compensation for assault?

Yes, in some cases. Depending on where the incident happened, you may be able to make a public liability claim.

However, your eligibility will also depend on the extent of the injury and whether you needed time off work.

Essentially, if there is an insurance company to make a claim against like a restaurant owner's public liability insurance, it's possible.
