RS v Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority: CA 13 Jun 2013

The claimant had sought compensation for psychiatric shock after an attack on his wife. The authority rejected his claim, and the First Tier Tribunal rejected his appeal. The Upper Tribunal had allowed his further Appeal, ordering its remittal, and the Authority itself now appealed, saying that the claimant had neither witnessed the assault, nor been involved in its immediate aftermath.
